Fat Injections are an advanced facial rejuvenation procedure to sculpt & restore youthfulness naturally…

During the natural aging process, facial collagen and elastin begin to break down. Combined with the diminishing volume of facial fat, these changes can cause the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and hollows.

The purpose of fat injections is to restore this lost volume to areas of the face including the jawline, pre-jowl area, lips, cheeks, nasolabial folds, tear troughs, upper eyelids, and temples. With Dr. Matthew White’s comprehensive approach to this procedure, he is able to shape complex areas of volume loss with better results than other fillers could provide, adding natural volume to achieve a beautiful, vibrant appearance.

While other types of fillers are eventually absorbed by the body and can only restore volume for a limited duration, fat injections have the ability to provide long lasting to permanent results.

Fat Injection Benefits

When performed by a skilled plastic surgeon, like Dr. White, facial implants are very safe. With that said, there is always a degree of risk when undergoing plastic surgery.

The benefits of fat transfer include:

  • Sculpting and restoring the face to a more youthful state
  • Replacing volume to hollowed areas
  • Using your own living tissue for a more natural look
  • Long-lasting or permanent results
  • An in-office procedure that is proven to be safe and effective


Determining your candidacy for the fat injection procedure centers on an evaluation of your overall health and how well your cosmetic goals align with the treatment's potential outcomes. If you’re aiming to revitalize facial wrinkles, hollow areas, and fine lines, you may find this procedure beneficial and are urged to schedule a consultation for a personalized evaluation. During your first meeting with Dr. White, he'll delve into your goals and hopes for the procedure, enabling him to create a personalized treatment strategy tailored to address your unique needs and concerns.

Fat Injection Procedure

Fat injection treatments are performed by using the patient’s own excess fat from the abdomen, hips, or buttocks to rejuvenate targeted areas of the face. Depending on the extent of the procedure, a local anesthetic or IV sedation is utilized for comfort.

After any unusable cells have been removed, the harvested fat is then injected to the target site to restore volume. Many of Dr. White’s patients choose to combine fat injection treatments with other facial rejuvenation treatments such as chin augmentation, facelift, eyelid lift or mid-facelift procedures to enhance results.

The Recovery Process

Though the procedure is minimally-invasive, there still may be mild bruising or swelling at the injection site.

The extent of this bruising and swelling will depend on the number and areas being treated, but should resolve in 2-3 days. Any post-treatment discomfort can often be easily treated with over-the-counter pain medication. Many patients experience little to no downtime after the procedure.
