Is the fat transfer to face procedure painful?

The actual injection of fat is not painful. You hardly need local anaesthesia and perhaps simple analgesia, such as paracetamol, afterwards. Obtaining (harvesting) the fat usually from the tummy of thighs will require local anaesthesia. However, if you are not sure how you will feel about the pain, you can always have sedation or a general anaesthetic (TIVA). There some people, who will have their own fat stored from a previous procedure. In which case it is simply defrosted and injected without loss of potency.

Nowadays fat grafting has become an integral part of face lifting and eyelid (blepharoplasty) surgery, when you may well be asleep with TIVA (Total IntraVenous Anaesthesia).

There is little discomfort following surgery, but there is a little swelling and bruising. It is worth having paracetamol on hand, but that should be sufficient. You may wonder whether it is worth going through even this minor amount of discomfort when you could simply have filler.

The advantage is that fat that takes (75% in the face) and behaves exactly like normal fat. It is permanent, but still subject to the usual effects of ageing. Fat will add structure and, because of the included stem cells, improve skin and scar quality.

Facial fаt injections are аn еffісіеnt, nearly painless and incredibly fаѕt way to іmрrоvе уоur facial соntоurѕ. The facial fаt іnjесtіоnѕ are 100% seamless. Nо one wіll notice thаt уоu had аnу cosmetic рrосеdurе. You’ll ѕіmрlу lооk mоrе bеаutіful thаn ever.
