Facial Fat Grafting


A common sign of aging is the loss of firmness and fat in your face and other areas. Men and women of greater Lexington and Georgetown, as well as the surrounding communities of Kentucky, who want to change their facial profile, can benefit from facial fat grafting from Commonwealth Plastic Surgery. Fat transfers can help to correct sunken areas of your skin, thinning lips or uneven contours in your faceContact us today to set up your consultation!


Facial fat grafting is a surgical procedure in which fat is taken from one part of your body and then injected into your face, smoothing out any wrinkles and adding plumpness to hollowed out facial features, effectively plumping up your skin again. Fat transfers can be injected into various parts of your face, including around the mouth, under the eyes, in the forehead and wherever you need more youthful volume. Facial fat grafting is much safer and more effective than many other youthfulness restoring techniques, and it is commonly used to help address facial scarring, lack of volume in the cheeks and face, sagging skin around your jawline, or just to add plumpness to your lips.

Meet Dr. Nimtz


Are you experiencing loose facial skin, facial concavity, sagging skin, loss of youthful volume, or other signs of aging that could be improved by adding more volume and tone to your face? Do you want smoother skin and a much more natural-looking facial profile? Improve your self-esteem and renew your sense of self-confidence, while boosting your skin texture, with facial fat grafting from Commonwealth Plastic Surgery. The procedure takes on average just one to two hours to complete and is performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia depending on your unique needs. Since the fat injected into your face is harvested from your own body, it eliminates any risk of allergies, plus, it can help reduce your unwanted fat in such areas as your thighs, back or buttocks.


At Commonwealth Plastic Surgery, facial fat grafting is a quick procedure with relatively minimal downtime. If you have fat cells that can be harvested from your upper thigh or stomach area and then injected into the proper area of the face, the result is a renewal of youthful smoothness and fewer wrinkles. Dr. Nimtz will meet with you during your consultation to identify and discuss your goals and then based on your objectives he will map out a personalized course of treatment that meets your needs. Your facial fat grafting recovery may involve some minor discomfort or slight bruising around the treated area for the first few days following your treatment. However, pain medication and ice packs can be used to diminish any swelling or bruising or to lessen any discomfort you may be experiencing. Typically you should be able to resume your regular activities within two weeks of your treatment.
