The aging process is something that no one can avoid, irrespective of who they are. As you can imagine, signs of the aging process can be more apparent in some people than others.
Some of the most obvious signs of the aging process include fine lines and wrinkles appearing on the face, and they can often be most evident when laughing, smiling, or frowning.
An innovative cosmetic procedure that can help tackle such facial cosmetic concerns is fat grafting, and it’s a procedure carried out by Dr. Anthony Farole at his facial cosmetic surgery center in Bala Cynwyd, PA.
Fat Grafting Overview
Fat grafting is a cosmetic procedure where fat taken from a patient’s own body (autologous fat) gets used as an aesthetic filler. It’s a process that gets done in several steps to ensure optimal results.
The fat grafting procedure undertaken by Dr. Farole, a board-certified facial cosmetic surgeon, differs from conventional liposuction procedures used by other cosmetic surgeons.
Dr. Farole’s methods involve using a cannula, a tiny tube, to harvest fat from the extraction site; this results in minimal downtime for clients and even boasts some body contouring benefits.
What Can Fat Grafting Treat?
Fat grafting is a procedure most commonly used as an aesthetic filler for wrinkles and fine lines on the face caused by the effects of aging. It’s also a suitable filler for restoring lost volume in lips, making them appear more plump and youthful again.
It’s also an effective cosmetic procedure for restoring lost volume in deep facial folds and is a viable alternative to conventional cosmetic surgery such as a facelift or injectable treatments such as dermal fillers and Botox®.

About Your Fat Grafting Procedure
When you opt for a fat grafting procedure from Dr. Farole, the process begins with an initial consultation and evaluation of your cosmetic concerns; this is to determine that fat grafting is the ideal cosmetic procedure for you.
Assuming fat grafting is right for you, the procedure begins with fat harvested from the extraction site using a cannula. The fat gets cleansed via a process known as centrifugation.
Lastly, the purified fat processed from the centrifugation process gets injected into the areas of cosmetic concern.
Benefits of Fat Grafting
Fat grafting uses autologous fat, eliminating the risk of an allergic reaction like you might experience with other cosmetic procedures. There are also some body contouring benefits experienced at the harvest sites.
Wrinkles, fine lines will get diminished, and lips and sunken cheeks will have restored volume. All changes will result in a more youthful appearance, and you should see the results of those changes immediately after the procedure.
Lastly, downtime is minimal, and the full beneficial results of fat grafting will be completely apparent approximately two to three months post-procedure.
Am I a Candidate for Fat Grafting?
You could be a candidate for fat grafting if you’d like to diminish the effects of the aging process, or you wish to restore lost volume in your lips or cheeks.
