Where does fat from a facial fat transfer come from?
The fat for us to use as a filler during a fat transfer to the face or facelift, we usually get that fat from areas where the patient has fatty deposits that they don’t want to have. For example, lower abdomen is the most common place, but it can be upper abdomen, it can be arms, thighs, waistline. So when we think about the sides is usually like the most convenient side is the best, because also we make the procedure a little faster and a little more fluid. So usually stomach because the patient is laying down flat, stomach or into your thighs are the easiest ones and the most common ones for us to use.
