Facial Fat Grafting New York City

Introduction to Facial Fat Grafting

Creating Facial Balance & Harmony

The clock ticks on aging whether we like it or not and for some, the aging process can take much more of a serious turn with deep wrinkles, worn skin, and age spots. If you have the genetics that welcomes the signs of aging a little earlier than you’re comfortable with, then Dr. William Samson and our procedure of Facial Fat Grafting me be your ticket to turning back the clock.

Facial Fat Grafting is a popular aesthetic procedure that combats the signs of aging by bringing the volume back to areas of your face via fat transfer. This is a fantastic option for those who are not ready for a more invasive facelift. Facial Fat Transfer is highly considered a more “natural” procedure because it uses the patient’s own fat, so there is no risk of body rejection. The fat injections act as a natural facial filler to improve facial contours and create significant facial rejuvenation.

Before & After


New York

Let’s start with the basics

What is Facial Fat Grafting?

Dr. Samson strives to deliver the best Facial Fat Grafting in New York City while doing his best to meet patient expectations. The first place to start is to have a better understanding of what the procedure does. Our office often deals with many patients looking for a less invasive alternative to facelifts or surgeries; Facial Fat Grafting is the best option if you’re looking for this route.

In the procedure, Dr. Samson takes living fat cells collected from areas of your body that have plenty of fat and, most of the time, a place on your body that can stand to be slimmer anyways (a double win aesthetically). This most commonly is the abdominal region or the inner thigh. Dr. Samson and our highly skilled team use a professional liposuction technique to preserve the integrity of your fat cells. It’s processed and strategically injected into areas marked for Facial Fat Transfer. Once placed in the target area, the cells develop a new home, reconnecting to the blood supply and providing long-lasting value. Results offer a more filling, youthful, and natural face.

What to expect on the day of surgery

The day starts with our dedication to our patient’s comfort. Dr. Samson strives to provide a setting full of confidence and reassurance that you have made the right decision to move toward a more happy life. Dr. Samson will begin by numbing both target sites with local anesthesia. In some cases, large volumes of fat are required; we may recommend general anesthesia or local anesthesia combined with sedation to ensure your comfort throughout your entire Facial Fat Grafting treatment.

After the fat has been purified, Dr. Samson injects it into your face with a needle, thus starting the process for the new face you’ve longed for. We recommend making arrangements with someone to drive you to and from your procedure, as you will not be able to drive for at least 24 hours after the anesthesia.

Facial Fat Grafting Recovery

Your recovery is just as important to us as your procedure. Slight bruising can occur in the sites where the fat is taken and where it is transferred. Swelling in the injected area will last seven to ten days while swelling in the donor site can last ten to twenty days; this is natural. Makeup can be used to camouflage any bruising. Most of our patients found that they could resume regular activities after a few days. Although we do recommend avoiding intense exercise, which may be resumed at about three weeks.
