Facial fat transfer can help to take years off your appearance, restoring youthful volume and giving you your confidence back.
As we get older, a lot of things change! One of these things is that the fat around our face starts to break down or succumb to gravity, which can result in an appearance that is unhealthy and hollowed out.
While this can be incredibly frustrating, it is not something you need to accept. Facial fat transfer can help you to get your youth back.
Average Cost of Facial Fat Transfer
According to RealSelf, the average cost of facial fat transfer in the United States is $5,075. However, do note that the price of this treatment can differ considerably based on various factors.
Factors That Influence Final Cost
The reason why there is such a divergence in terms of cost is that there are a lot of different factors that can influence the final price. This includes the experience and expertise of your surgeon, as well as the location of your clinic. After all, prices are generally higher in certain parts of the United States in comparison to others.
In addition to this, the scope of the treatment plays a role, including the treatment area and how long the facial fat transfer will take.
Benefits of a Facial Fat Transfer
There are a number of different benefits that are associated with facial fat transfer, including the following:
- There are fewer risks and side effects associated with facial fat transfer when compared with fillers
- Improve the tone and texture of your skin
- Rather than chemicals being used to fill your face, your own fat is used, which is, of course, naturally occurring in your body
- The result of this treatment is lasting and will continue indefinitely
- Significant volume restoration can be expected from facial fat transfer treatment
Am I a Candidate for Facial Fat Transfer?
You may be wondering whether or not you are a good candidate for facial fat transfer. A good candidate is someone who has no circulation issues and is in good general health. The patient does need to have sufficient fat in a “donor” area to remove for placement in the face. Areas commonly used as donor sites are the lower abdomen & thighs.
It is also vital that you have realistic expectations regarding the procedure and what can be achieved, which is something that will be discussed with you during your consultation.
Facial fat transfer tends to be used by patients who want to achieve one or more of the following objectives:
- Achieve longer-lasting results than are provided with temporary fillers
- Fill in a gaunt-looking face
- Rejuvenate your face by smoothing crow’s feet, smile lines, and laugh lines
- Correct any depressions that are in your skin
Stellar Service from Start to Finish
Two months ago I had a lower lifestyle facial lift. I was apprehensive, but it was well worth the effort and expense. Dr. Lanfranchi and his entire staff were kind, caring and very professional, from the first meeting to the follow up appointments.
The procedure is done under a local, not general anesthetic, and it was easy. I healed quickly and am very satisfied with the results.
His fee was very reasonable. Any further facial work I want done, I will be sure to come back here.
