These images show a patient pre-operatively, and then 6 months after autologous fat grafting: taking fat from the hip, and transferring it to other areas. In this case, the fat was placed at the nasolabial folds, the lips, the lines around the mouth, and the area below the eyes. As we age, 2 main issues contribute to facial aging: descent of the skin and soft tissue (addressed with lifts of various types) and volume loss. Fat grafting is very effective at restoring the youthful facial volume that you once had, while also filling in the deeper lines and wrinkles that result from this aging process.


This 34 year old was unhappy with the early development of nasolabial folds (arrows). She was treated with fat grafting (fat was taken from her hip using a needle, after she was numb from the local anesthetic) which was injected into the depressed areas at her cheeks. The results are shown 6 months after the procedure. She was fully awake for the grafting, and drove herself home afterward.


This patient presented for rejuvenation around her eyes; she had a complete brow lift performed, as well as upper and lower blepharoplasties under local anesthetic (with sedation), done in the office. At the same time, she had fat grafting performed at her lower lids (at the infraorbital rims) to replace lost volume and minimize the "bags" under her eys.

In addition to the reduced "bagginess" at the lower lids, note how the fat grafting improved the contour of the corners of the mouth.
