When people think of “signs of aging,” they mostly think of wrinkles and fine lines. But one more major sign of aging is the loss of facial volume. Loss of facial volume can lead to hollow temples, sunken eyes, flat cheeks, and jowls.
Fortunately, it is possible to restore lost facial volume through a safe and simple procedure: fat grafting! Hundreds of people have undergone facial fat grafting to rejuvenate their facial features and improve their appearance.
Facial fat grafting is a minimally invasive procedure where the excess fat is taken from one part of the body (usually the abdomen, hips, or thighs) and injected into the face. This procedure is also known as facial fat rejuvenation or micro-lipoinjection.
Facial fat grafting is generally used in the following areas:
Under the eyes
Nasolabial folds (lines that go from the corners of the mouth to the nose)
A good candidate for facial fat grafting should:
Be an overall healthy person with a stable weight
Be a non-smoker or willing to quit smoking for the duration prescribed by the surgeon
Be unhappy with the loss of their facial volume
Have adequate excess fat for the procedure
Have realistic expectations of the procedure
If you fit the above criteria, you are an ideal candidate for facial fat grafting. Book an appointment with Dr. Vasant Gholave to learn more about facial fat grafting and how it can help you.
During the consultation for facial fat grafting, Dr. Vasant Gholave, Director of Arra Aesthetics, will enquire about the patient’s wishes and desires. He will describe the full procedure to the patient, including the expected results and possible risks. Dr. Gholave will carefully examine the patient’s face and will meticulously form a treatment plan based on his examination and the patient’s wishes.
Dr. Vasant Gholave believes that for the best results, open communication between patient and surgeon is essential. He will inquire about the patient’s full medical history and any allergies the patient may have to ensure that there will be no complications during the procedure. Dr. Gholave will encourage the patient to ask all the questions they may have so that they can undergo the procedure without any worries.
The following are the steps of facial fat grafting:
Step 1: The surgeon administers general or local anesthesia so that the patient does not feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure.
Step 2: The surgeon makes small incisions in the area from which fat will be extracted.
Step 3: Then the surgeon uses a small tube to extract fat from that area.
Step 4: The surgeon cleans the blood and other fluids from the fat using special equipment so that only whole and undamaged fat cells are used.
Step 5: Finally, the surgeon injects the fat into the target areas where volume needs to be restored.
Facial fat grafting is a minimally invasive procedure so the patient will be able to go home the same day as the procedure. There may be some bruising and swelling after the procedure. Fortunately, both will fade away after a few weeks. The surgeon will prescribe some pain medication to reduce any pain or discomfort the patient may feel. If facial fat grafting is done in combination with other procedures then the recovery period will be longer.
The patient is advised to attend routine follow-ups with the surgeon. During the follow-up appointments, the surgeon can monitor the recovery and the results to ensure that there are no complications or side effects.
The risks of facial grafting are:
Temporary numbness or change in sensation
Temporary bruising and swelling
Undercorrection (less than the required amount of fat is transferred)
Overcorrection (more than the required amount of fat is transferred)
These risks are rarely seen and our team at Arra Aesthetics does its best to ensure that the procedure is completed without any complications.

We were based in UK when I had severe burn on my right hand. I was undergoing burn dressing daily almost for 3 months there. But some portion of the wound didn't heal.In between treatment, we relocated to India and the wound was still not fully healed.While searching options on web for my wound healing, I came across the Arra Aesthetics and I came to know about the best laser treatment for wound healing. I consulted Dr. Vasant Gholave Plastic Surgeon in Pune for my non healing wound and post burn keloid of right hand at Arra Aesthetics.
