Wrinkling and loss of volume are common facial issues that come about as a result of the aging process. Facial fat grafting is a method of removing unwanted fat from one part of your body, and then using it in your face to fill wrinkles and restore volume.

A vital aspect of the facial fat grafting treatment is the use of a local anesthetic technique called “tumescent anesthesia.” This anesthetic is first used to numb the area of the patient’s body where fat harvesting will take place. Later, prior to the fat injections, it is administered to the regions of the face targeted for filling.
