The fatty tissue under the skin on the face helps soften and shape the face. Loss of facial fat from aging or weight loss can result in a sunken or older appearance. Replacing lost fat can improve the shape of the face, resulting in a more youthful and energetic look. Our double board certified facial plastic surgeon at LM Medical NYC, Dr. Lesley Rabach, can perform facial fat grafting to reshape and replenish the face.

Facial fat loss is common with aging. Along with depletion of collagen, elastin and other skin components, fat diminishes under the skin. The combination of these aging factors can result in looser skin and a sunken appearance around the eyes or cheeks. While facial filler injections can offer a temporary volume increase in the skin, they dissipate over time and do not replace lost fatty tissue. Facial fat grafting can offer a permanent solution to replace lost fat to reshape and soften the face.

Benefits of Facial Fat Transfers

Facial fat transfers, or grafting, use fat harvested from your own body to replenish lost fat in the face. The fat cells can be removed from the thighs, abdomen or other areas, sterilized and injected into the desired areas. Facial fat grafting has many benefits over facial fillers and other types of anti-aging treatments. These include:

  • Safe and natural – there is no risk of adverse side effects or allergic reaction to your own fat cells
  • Long-lasting – fat grafting is permanent, not a temporary solution
  • Stem cells – fat cells also contain stem cells which can have a rejuvenating effect on the face
  • Appearance – fat transfers look and feel natural

If you have lost volume in your cheeks or face from aging, facial fat grafting could restore youthful softness and contours to your face. To learn more about fat transfers, contact us at LM Medical NYC in Manhattan to schedule a private consultation.

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Xavier M.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!

Fun, safe and the results were perfect. Can’t wait for my next procedure!
