As men age, they begin to experience a decrease in facial volume due to the natural loss of fat and bone within the face. Due to this lost volume, the natural contours of the face diminish, resulting in hollow cheeks, wrinkles, sagging skin, and sunken eyes.
At Facial Aesthetic Concepts, we understand how those changes to your appearance can affect your self-confidence. While a variety of cosmetic surgery procedures and non-surgical options are available to address facial aging, fat transfer procedures by our team utilize your own body fat, so no synthetic fillers are introduced to your body. This helps create a natural look and a more youthful appearance.
Fat transfer is a particularly popular procedure for men due to the limited downtime and the natural result that can be achieved. The purpose of the procedure is to restore what once was not to change your look.
Don’t let the signs of aging get you down. Contact us online to schedule a complimentary consultation with our team and see how a fat transfer for men procedure can help you take years off your face and give you back your confidence.

Best Candidates for Fat Transfer Procedures
Men who are looking to restore a more youthful look and want a minimally invasive option with little downtime are the best candidates for the fat transfer procedure. A person should be in good general health and have enough fat present for the procedure. Your surgeon and his team will go over your goals and determine what treatment options will help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Typical patients want to improve one or more areas of their face:
- Cheeks: Sunken cheeks naturally occur over time as the tissue around the cheekbones begins to sag and deplete. Men can get better definition in the cheeks with a fat transfer procedure, recapturing a much more youthful look.
- Midface: The midface of a man sees the biggest changes as he ages. Replacing lost volume in this area corrects the vast majority of what we see as an aged appearance.
- Eyes: The process of facial volume loss affects some men by creating hollowness around the eyes, causing the eyes to look deeper set within the eye sockets. Other signs include the creation of a groove or so-called tear trough underneath the lower eyelid.
What to Expect with a Fat Transfer Procedure
A fat transfer procedure at Facial Aesthetic Concepts is performed under local anesthesia with or without mild sedation. It is a well-tolerated procedure that typically takes 1 to 2 hours. Most often we will harvest fat from the thighs and distribute it to the areas discussed during your consultation.
During the procedure, both the area from which the fat is removed as well as the treatment site will be treated with a local anesthetic. A small needle is used to harvest the fat from the determined area. The removed fat is processed, prepared, and finally injected, using another needle, back into the treatment area.
Fat Transfer Recovery & Results
You can expect to experience some swelling and bruising at both the harvesting site and the treatment sites. Cold compresses can help to minimize these symptoms and reduce any discomfort. Typically, more fat than is necessary is injected into the face to allow for reabsorption, so you may notice additional facial swelling and a plump look for the first week.
Antibiotics and an antiviral medication may be prescribed to reduce the risk of infection. You will receive full after-care instructions so you know exactly what to do during your recovery period. Most people are able to return to their normal activities right away. Because fat transfers utilize your own body fat, they last longer than any other injectable filler option, often lasting many years.
Utilizing your own natural body fat is a great long-term solution to treat the natural signs of aging and help restore your youthful appearance. If lines, sunken eyes and hollow cheeks have you feeling less confident, a fat transfer procedure can be the long-term solution you are looking for.
