Fat grafting to the face in Virginia Beach uses your own body’s fat to restore the volume and youthful appearance of your face. At The Choe Center, we do this by extracting the fat from other areas on your body that have a little bit extra, like your stomach or thighs. Next, the fat is purified before finally being injected into the areas of your face that have lost volume due to aging. You may choose to have it added to your cheeks, lips, temple, or under your eyes. This technique gives you a natural look because it uses your own tissue.

Dr. Choe leads the way in innovative techniques, including:

  • PRP Therapy: Dr. Choe enhances the results of fat grafting with PRP therapy. This innovative procedure uses a concentrated portion of your own blood, rich in platelets and growth factors, to promote healing and improve the survival rate of the transferred fat cells.
  • PureGraft Fat Grafting: If you are looking for the most advanced techniques in fat transfer, you may opt for PureGraft. This system filters and purifies the fat so that only the healthiest and most viable fat cells are used for your facial enhancement.

Good Candidates for Fat Grafting to the Face

Ideal candidates include people who:

  • Have a clear understanding of the benefits that come with the procedure and are realistic in their expectations.
  • Have good overall health and don’t have any conditions that impair healing.
  • Have areas of their face that appear sunken or tired.
  • Desire a long-lasting solution to restore facial volume.
  • Prefer a natural approach using their own fat instead of temporary fillers.

Recovery and Results

Recovery from fat grafting is relatively swift and less invasive than other surgical procedures, like a facelift. Here’s what you can expect after your procedure is complete:

  • You may notice some swelling and bruising in the area from which the fat was taken and the injection sites. However, this usually subsides within 2 to 3 weeks.
  • Mild discomfort is normal. You can manage it with the medication Dr. Choe prescribes.
  • You can return to work and normal activities within a week, although we advise avoiding strenuous activities for at least two weeks for optimal healing.
  • We may recommend compression garments to support your healing in the area from which the fat was taken.
  • You will see results right away, and they will continue to improve as your swelling goes down. Some of the transferred fat may be absorbed, but the majority of it will remain. That means it offers you a permanent enhancement to your facial volume.
