All About Fat Transfer in Orange County

Fat injection treatments are predominantly used to fill in sunken cheeks, laugh lines, and depressed areas or indentations on the face or body. Often combined with other surgical procedures such as liposuction, fat transfer procedures are a way to take advantage of time under anesthesia to achieve a more complete result. At CosmetiCare in Newport Beach, facial liposuction with fat transfer to improve hollows, and areas where collagen has depleted over the years is the most commonly requested treatment.

Remove Fat From One Area To Transfer & Plump Another

There are three phases involved when undergoing a fat transfer, all of which happen under local anesthesia in one procedure:


Liposuction is used to harvest unwanted fat from the patient’s thighs, abdomen or lower back area


The surgeon sterilizes the fat cells, purifying and preparing them for injection


The fat is carefully injected into the areas of your face you’d like to add volume to in small amounts until the ideal look is achieved

Frequently Asked Questions

How Will I Look & Feel Afterward?

After your fat transfer procedure at CosmetiCare in Newport Beach:

  • Because fat has a certain rate of absorption once injected, your surgeon will over-fill the area to allow for this absorption rate over the next several weeks. The areas injected will appear very puffy and “fat” and you will have bruising, swelling or redness in the donor site as well as the injected areas treated.
  • Although you may return to most activities immediately, if a large area was treated, it is advised to restrict activity for a short time.
  • Most patients feel good enough to resume normal activities right away. However, you will be quite swollen. Those who don’t want others to know of their procedure may choose to wait a few days before going out into public.
  • It is recommended that you avoid sun exposure until redness and bruising subsides, usually after 48 hours.
How Long Will the Results Last?

Results from your fat transfer procedure in Orange County:

  • Fat injection results are significantly different with each patient.
  • Some patients will have more absorption than others. Many have had results last up to one year or more.
  • Secondary injections are not uncommon and may be necessary to obtain the result you’re looking to achieve.
  • Fat injection is a surgical procedure and performed under general anesthesia. Collagen, Restylane® and other injectable fillers are also available to fill fine lines and wrinkles, enhance lips, and smooth out depressed areas of the face.

Is Fat Transfer the same as Fat Injection?

Yes, they are one in the same. Fat is removed via liposuction, purified, then used via injection to plump and fill specific trouble areas.
