Replenish Volume With a Facial Fat Transfer in Los Angeles

When your face loses fat because of the effects of aging, that volume loss creates a shape you may not want. Hollows begin to show, skin can sag and wrinkle, and instead of looking fresh and ready for the day—like how you feel inside—you can look tired and even grumpy.

Plus, aging can seem to migrate fat from where you want it to where you don’t.

At Younique, our facial fat transfer in Los Angeles re-plumps facial contours using fat gently harvested from your problem areas. You can get back a more youthful, fresh face using your body’s natural assets for long-term, positive results.

Benefits of a Facial Fat Transfer in Los Angeles

Replenish Contours

Moving fat from problem areas to places on your face that have lost volume restores a more plump, youthful look to your face—while slimming the problem area!

Smoothing Skin

Wrinkles and fine lines will diminish (or disappear) in the target restoration areas.

Natural Sources

The fat comes from your own body as a natural, permanent filler, which means you should not have any negative reactions to the new resident in your cheeks!

The Facial Fat Transfer Process

What to Expect



It starts with a personal consultation with your trained and licensed Younique provider. During this one-on-one, they’ll discuss your concerns, your goals for treatment, and your medical history. If your provider determines that a facial fat transfer is the best option, your surgery can be scheduled, and you’ll be filled in on the pre-surgery preparation details.



Also known as facial fat grafting, a facial fat transfer works on two areas of your body. First, both target sites receive local anesthesia and a thorough cleansing. After that, your Younique provider will make tiny incisions in the removal area and harvest the fat through a small tube called a cannula. This can come from thighs, abdomen, buttocks, or wherever your slimming goals and medical preferences dictate.

The harvested fat will be injected beneath the facial skin to fill hollowed cheeks, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, plump lips, and return fullness and lift to your cheekbones.



Expect swelling and bruising in both the donor and recipient sites for the first week, possibly longer depending on the amount of transfer material taken and injected. Swelling and bruising should subside within 10 to 14 days. Most patients resume normal activity within 7 days after the procedure.
