to Facial Fat Transfer

The art of rejuvenation

One of the most natural ways to solve contour problems with your body is to take a little excess fat from one place and use it to enhance another area. In many cases, this procedure is a one-two punch for beauty enhancement, as it takes a fatty space and contours it down, thus using the valuable and natural fat to enhance somewhere that needs it. Most patients don’t realize this can be done to in and around your face. If you are interested in turning back the clock and restoring a plump, supple look to your skin, consider a Facial Fat Transfer in Beverly Hills from Dr. Sadaat. He is highly mastered in the applications of fat transfer and consistently delivers stunning, natural-looking results.

What is a Facial Fat Transfer?

A Facial Fat Transfer, also known as fat grafting, is a procedure used to increase the fullness of a specific facial feature utilizing the patient’s own tissue. Fat Injections in Beverly Hills are commonly used to rejuvenate areas of the face that look prematurely aged or sagged. The technique combines liposuction and cosmetic filling to enhance issues like hollow cheeks, recesses under the eyes, scars, or depressions. Some of the most popular facial procedures we implement at Beverly Hills Aesthetic Surgical Institute are: 

  • Fat Transfer to the Face: Adds volume and contours to your features and may reduce the signs of aging.
  • Fat Grafting for Lips: As an alternative to lip augmentation fillers, consider fat transfers for the lips for longer-lasting results than fillers.
  • Fat Transfer to Cheeks: Cheek augmentation with fat injections adds volume to naturally flat cheeks. It also helps reduce wrinkles in the lower part of the face.

What are the benefits of a Facial Fat Transfer?

Unlike dermal fillers, the effects of a Facial Fat Transfer are permanent after the initial period of recovery. One benefit of Facial Fat Transfer that stands out the most is the almost zero risk of allergic reaction. Because we use your own tissue, it makes the procedure very safe with a high chance of exceptional results with risks associated very low. Other excellent benefits of Facial Fat Transfer are: 

  • Smooths fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and other types of skin depressions
  • Augments volume-deficient areas like the temples, cheeks, and lips
  • Long-lasting, natural-looking results
  • Little to no scarring in the treated facial areas
  • Two problems were fixed at once ( fatty area and hollowed area)

What to Expect On The Day of Facial Fat Transfer?

On the day of your Facial Fat Transfer, we may use general anesthesia or local sedation. When you’re comfortable and ready, Dr. Sadaat will use a thin tube called a cannula inserted via small incisions to extract fat from the donor site on your body. Usually, this site is the buttocks, hips, inner or outer thighs, or abdomen. This fat is then washed, purified, and processed to prepare it in a syringe for transfer. Fat purification is necessary to ensure that re-injecting harvested fat doesn’t cause any adverse reactions. This process is repeated until the desired amount of fat has been placed in the target area. Using a technique known as lipomodeling, Dr. Saadat will inject the fat into the facial area. He and our technician team may perform several injections until the desired amount of fat has been placed in the target area.

Facial Fat Transfer Recovery


Fat Grafting recovery is relatively short compared to other types of plastic surgery. After your Facial Fat Transfer in Beverly Hills is complete, you should expect discomfort and minor swelling; this is normal and should subside after 7- 10 days. Fat Transfer downtime is usually a few weeks, and healing can take one to two weeks. At this time, we highly recommend sleeping on your back with your head elevated and avoiding any direct contact with the face for at least two weeks. You may softly wash your face, but do this gently and avoid the injection areas.

How Much Does Facial Fat Transfer Cost in Beverly Hills?

The price of Facial Fat Transfer

The cost of Facial Fat Transfer in Beverly Hills depends on multiple factors, but primarily on how much work is required and the targeted areas of your face. When you come in for your consultation and discuss the needs of this procedure, we will have a better sense of what is needed and create a surgical plan just for you. Once this has been done, our Patient coordinator will be able to give you a price analysis for the entirety of your treatment.

I was referred to Dr. Saadat by a friend having seen the amazing result on my friend’s face. I made an appointment and Dr. Saadat already knew what will make the transformation in my face. I had two plastic surgeries (by a very reputable plastic surgeon in Pasadena) and both were absolute waste of time and money. Dr. Saadat recommended an upper eyelid bleph
