Want a younger-looking facial appearance – without actually adding anything synthetic to your face?
If you shy away at the thought of dermal fillers or silicone implants, you may be a good candidate for facial fat injections. These treatments use your body’s own fat to add volume to key facial areas, leading to a more naturally youthful appearance without the need for fillers or implants.
Advantages of Facial Fat Injections
One of the biggest advantages of facial fat injections is that there’s little risk for your body to reject the treatment. That’s because you’re using your own fat to add volume, so your body won’t have an allergic reaction or try to reject it like it possibly could with silicone implants or dermal fillers.
Additionally, facial fat injections can potentially lead to more natural-looking results than what you’d get with other treatments. Over time, your newly injected fat will naturally settle into their new placement, so you won’t have to worry about any odd or stiff-looking placement that could happen with fillers and/or silicone implants.
Are There Any Risks Involved?
While no cosmetic procedure is 100% risk-free, facial fat injections come pretty close. That’s because it’s extremely unlikely your body will have an allergic or adverse reaction to fat injections, as your body will recognize its own fat.

How is It Performed?
The facial fat injection begins with a small liposuction procedure on the waist, thighs, or anywhere else where enough fat can be harvested. Once the fat is cleansed, it’s placed in syringes and injected into key facial areas like:
- The apples of the cheeks
- The temples
- Underneath the eyes
- The lips
- Nasolabial folds
- And more
