Lipofilling (Fat Transfer)

Lipofilling (Fat Transfer)


A Fat Transfer is a surgical procedure where fat is taken, usually from the abdomen, and injected into areas around the face that can do with more volume. This may include the cheek area, the orbital sulcus, which is the space between the upper eyelids and the eyebrow, or sometimes into the lower lids and tear trough area if there is hollowing. It can also be used around the chin, jawline and jowls. It is often combined with other facial surgical procedures, but can be done as a stand-alone procedure as well.


Involved downtime – Downtime is variable, but is generally only around two weeks and can be shortened with the Prèface Cosmetic “Premium Package.”

Lipofilling is designed to address the following:

Marionette lines

Eyelid droop
