Give Your Face the Freshness and Plumpness of Youth

Fat Grafting

As you’ve gotten older, you’ve noticed changes when you look in the mirror – and they aren’t good ones. Your skin has grown slack, leading to sunken areas in your cheeks, lips, temples, and other areas of the face. They make you look tired and old.

The good news is that you don’t have to live with this appearance. There’s a procedure, fat grafting, that can give you a fuller, more youthful-looking face. All Dr. Reilly has to do is take fat from an area of the body where it’s unwanted and move it to your face to plump it. You’ll look younger and get rid of some troublesome body fat in one procedure!

What is Fat Grafting?

Fat grafting is a procedure that involves extracting fat from specific areas of the body to fill in features of the face. The fat may be harvested from the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, or anywhere else where there is substantial fat that can be safely extracted. When injected into the skin, it can fill in sunken cheeks, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and even enhance the lips. Unlike injectable fillers, fat grafting utilizes one’s natural fat to improve their appearance.

The Benefits of Fat Grafting

Since the fat is sourced from one’s own body, it is more easily absorbed into the treatment area and carries less chance of risks when compared to synthetic fillers. The fat can be used to lift aging skin and increase volume where it was been lost. The results from fat grafting also last longer than fillers, generating results that can last a lifetime.


How It Works

Fat Grafting

Your fat grafting procedure starts with a detailed consultation. Dr. Reilly will examine your face and listen to your goals. If you both decide that a fat graft is the way to restore volume and freshness to your face, you’ll then decide where you want to take the fat from.

On the day of your procedure, you’ll be given the right type of anesthetic to keep you comfortable. Then, Dr. Reilly will use proven liposuction techniques to remove fat from your trouble areas. Once the fat is ready, he will place it into the desired area of your face. He can treat your temples, cheekbones, lips, nasolabial folds, chin hollow, eyebrows, and/or forehead.

After the procedure is over, Dr. Reilly will give you detailed aftercare instructions. Soon, you’ll be able to enjoy a fresh and youthful appearance once again!

Dr. Riley and his team were absolutely incredible to me. I had two procedures done and the whole time from start to finish they were there for me. Super friendly customer service is what is important to me and they had went above and beyond that.

  • How do I know if I’m a candidate for the procedure?
    You might notice that you have sagging cheeks or other slack skin around your face. If you’re not happy with the way this looks, you might be a candidate for fat grafting. Of course, you’ll also have to have unwanted fat in other areas for Dr. Reilly to move to your face. Dr. Reilly can give you a full exam to determine whether fat grafting is the right procedure for you or if you’d be better off with fillers or another procedure.
  • Will this procedure leave scars?
    Yes. Dr. Reilly has to make incisions to remove the fat and to place it in your face. However, he’ll make sure every scar is as small and discreet as possible. You won’t have to worry about embarrassing scars compromising your results!
  • What’s the recovery like after the surgery?
    A fat grafting procedure is very individual. Your recovery period will depend on where the fat was taken from and where it was placed. Rest assured that Dr. Reilly will give you a detailed, tailored recovery plan. He’ll tell you exactly what to do, what not to do, and what extra steps you can take to enhance your recovery.
  • How much will the procedure cost?
    Because each procedure is tailored to the patient’s individual goals, costs vary from patient to patient. You can discuss the cost with Dr. Reilly’s staff at your initial consultation. Rest assured that there are many payment and financing options available.
