Facial Fat Injections for Men in NYC

What are Facial Fat Injections?

Body fat makes for an outstanding tissue filler material that involves the transfer of fat from one area of the body to another. Fat injections in NYC can be used to fill and shape areas of the face and body for male patients. Some fat injection is not permanent, and therefore requires maintenance, which is discussed with your doctor during your consultation. This procedure can be very cost-effective for men when combined with a treatment such as liposuction.

BodyBanking® is one of the safest and most effective ways to receive fat injections into your body. BodyBanking®, a process board-certified Dr. Steinbrech developed to perform a selective fat transfer, removes undesirable fat from one region and injects it into another that may be lacking. Facial fat injections with BodyBanking® provides a more natural alternative to synthetic fillers. BodyBanking® “allows for the number of fat cells to remain fairly constant which prevents disproportionate fat growth if there was weight gain in the future,” as stated in Dr. Steinbrech’s NYC case study.

How Do Facial Fat Injections Work?

Once the treatment area and donor area (typically the buttocks or abdomen for male patients) determined, they’re first injected with a local anesthetic. Fluids are then injected into the donor site to enable fat collection. Once the fat is injected, it is then placed in a syringe and processed to be cleaned. Finally, the fat is injected into the desired area. The amount of fat injected into the body must be greater than the amount needed as just 50% of the fat injected will survive the transfer, typically speaking. As fat is absorbed into the body, extra fat cells allow for the right amount of volume for one’s desired final result. The procedure typically takes about 1 hour to complete and injections may last anywhere from a few months to permanently. 

Who is a Good Candidate for Fat Injections?

The best candidates for fat injections are patients looking to improve upon areas that may be lacking, especially if there is a region they’re treating with liposuction (such as the abdomen or buttocks). In addition, facial fat injections are ideal for patients seeking a natural alternative to synthetic injections. No pre-testing is needed as the fat used is from the patient’s own body and therefore cannot be rejected. It is also a good alternative if the patient is allergic to bovine collagen.

Recovery Time

While patients may experience slight, temporary discomfort in the donor area, there is little to no downtime following a facial fat injection. In fact, most male patients see no disruption of their daily routines. Side effects of minor swelling and/or bruising may occur, however, these symptoms typically subside after 2 days. In some cases, patients may need another visit as not all transfer are permanent.
