Facial Fat Grafting
While dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM® are safe, effective, FDA-approved facial rejuvenation products, some people want a more natural option. Dr. Sean Hill, a plastic surgeon with advanced training in facial aesthetics, offers fat grafting in Frisco, TX, for long-lasting enhancement of the face and lips.
What is fat grafting?
Autologous fat transfer, often called fat grafting, is a process that involves collecting fat from a donor area on the patient’s body using liposuction, purifying it, and carefully injecting it into another area on the same patient. While not all of the transplanted fat cells survive, those that successfully establish a blood supply remain in their new location indefinitely.

What does facial fat grafting improve?
Dr. Hill offers facial fat grafting as a natural, long-lasting alternative to dermal fillers that has similar uses, which include:
- Smoothing out lines, wrinkles, and folds
- Adding or restoring volume to the cheeks, lips, hollows under the eyes, and temples
- Augmenting the chin
Dr. Hill often uses fat grafting to put the finishing touches on a facelift to add back youthful volume to the cheeks and under the eyes.
What is recovery like after facial fat transfer?
Swelling and bruising in the face and donor area is normal after fat transfer. Patients are generally ready to return to work and everyday activities in about 7 to 10 days. A compression garment is worn on the donor area for a few weeks to help the healing process.
