Fat Grafting

Conveniently located to serve Los Angeles and Beverly Hills
Facial fat grafting takes fat from one area of the body and moves it to specific areas of the face. Fat is an important component of maintain a youthful appearance with good facial contours. Fat atrophy and volume loss due to aging, hormone changes, and/or rapid weight loss is a major contributor to a deflated or aged appearance. Fat grafting can volumize certain targeted areas of the face. This results in improved facial contours and a restored youthful appearance.

Candidates for Fat Grafting

Candidates for facial fat grafting are those who would benefit from adding volume to specific regions of their face. It is recommended to be at a healthy and stable weight prior to undergoing fat grafting. 

How Fat Grafting is Performed

Dr. Foulad typically performs fat grafting using local anesthesia. Patients remain comfortable throughout the duration of the procedure. Dr. Foulad first obtains fat from one part of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, or inner or outer thigh. He obtains this fat gently using a small liposuction cannula. The incisions made for the fat removal are only a few millimeters in length and usually heal very nicely. Dr. Foulad then processes and purifies the harvested fat. The fat is then carefully and strategically injected into your desired areas until the appropriate volume and shape are met. Usually the fat is injected using a microcannula, similar to the technique as filler treatment.

How to Prepare for Fat Grafting

In preparation for undergoing fat transfer treatment, it is important that you are healthy and optimized for the procedure. Certain medications and supplements might have to be stopped a specific time period prior to the procedure to reduce certain risks. It is important that you do not not smoke or use nicotine products 1-2 months prior to your procedure and for a period of time after your procedure. You will be provided more comprehensive pre-operative instructions specific to your individual case.

What to Expect After Fat Grafting

Recovery from fat grafting is very comfortable for most patients. Following the procedure most patients experience very minimal swelling and/or bruising. However, bruising and swelling varies from patient to patient. The majority of patients are able to return back to work or social activities within several days to one week following their procedure.

Fat Grafting faq

How many treatments will I require?

Some patients reach their desired results with just one fat transfer session. While in other patients, a second or third session may be necessary in order to achieve the most optimized result. This is because the amount of fat that survives is not completely predictable.

Over time, some of the transferred fat may reabsorb in some patients. If this occurs, additional treatment can be considered.

How long does fat transfer last?

Facial fat grafting typically lasts for many years, and can be permanent. Once the transferred fat integrates within the adjacent tissues, it will remain there for a long time.

Dr.Foulad and his staff are amazing. The results speak for themselves. Dr. Foulad is meticulous. The experience was beyond great. I had a neck lift, a mid face lift and an upper eye lift. Dr. Foulad was very attentive. Chelsea, the practice manager, took care of every detail. I felt at ease and very taken care of. I had prepared myself for a painful surgery and recovery period but it was not like that at all. There was no pain and very little discomfort. It felt more like a well needed vacation. I had all my surgery on a Friday and I saw Dr. Foulad and Chelsea through the weekend. By the following Saturday I was at an important social function and with a little make up, no one could tell I was a week out from surgery. Some people would call this vanity. I disagree. I don’t feel 63. Why should I have to look 63.(or older!) It’s the best thing I ever did for myself. I can't thank Dr. Foulad enough. If you are considering doing this, I beg you to pull the rip cord, take the plunge, whatever you want to call it, but do it! It’s worth it. You’re worth it!

There aren't enough stars for this review to tell you how pleased I am with Dr Foulad, Chelsea and the staff. It was so worth the miles traveled to have my facelift, neck and brow lift. Their attentiveness from the consult all the way through to the aftercare has been amazing. He continues to check in with me 2 months later. His attention to detail and his warm and caring personality made this such an enjoyable experience. I could not believe there was minimal pain and you cannot even see where the stitches were. I feel AND look like a new woman. Judge for yourself with my pictures! Highly recommend Dr Foulad and his staff

Dr. Foulad performed my facelift and neck lift a few months ago and my results are phenomenal! He is kind, talented, and did beautiful work on my face and neck. He is very honest and takes a lot into consideration when giving his recommendations. He takes so much time to answer your questions and explain everything to you. Everything about my experience was top notch. I have seen other doctors in my past and none of them followed up with me or spent the amount of time with me the way Dr. Foulad has. His staff was also incredibly pleasant and accommodating with me. I can’t recommend Dr. Foulad enough. He genuinely cares deeply about his patients and does excellent work!

Dr. Foulad loves what he does and it shows. He is professional, knowledgeable, skilled, and dedicated to his patients. His "bed manners" are without equal. He follows up on his patients for weeks after surgery, providing timely advice and encouragement. He is honest and upfront about what benefits surgery can provide and he refers to other surgeons procedures that he does not feel comfortable performing.

Dr Foulad is absolutely amazing! He is super patient, takes the time to thoroughly explain all your issues, thoughts, and goals and maps out all of your options without pushing anything whatsoever (if anything he does the opposite and explains everything in depth). He was completely attentive and super eloquent and smart when describing all of the ways he can help heal and preserve my skin and shared a wealth of knowledge. The practice manager Chelsea is patient, kind and super sweet and helpful. I'll definitely be telling my family and friends to become patients of Dr Foulad's practice. He is a perfectionist in the best way possible.

I went to Dr Foulad for Jowl liposuction. Dr Foulad is a very informed facial artist and a master of his craft. I appreciate how delicate he was with my face during the procedure. He paid close attention to every detail of my face, and his effort shows in my results! I highly recommend Dr Foulad for any facial procedure. It’s important to have someone who is invested in your vision as you are, and that is Dr Foulad.

Wow, I am so impressed! From the minute I walked into his office I was warmly greeted by his staff and ushered off for my consult with Dr. Foulad. He was extremely through (I ask a lot of questions) and he was very patient and did not rush me. I followed up the next week for my procedure which I’m thrilled with the outcome and feel so much confident! I’m looking forward to a long relationship with his office and it’s nice because he offers the entire package of treatments, products and procedures to cover all the bases! So no more running around to different offices!
