What is it?

It is a surgical technique whereby fat cells are extracted from areas of the body where there is an excess (such as the abdomen, thighs and flanks) and transferred to the face with the aim of remodelling or reconstructing it. As well as correcting defects, as a ‘secondary effect’ it improves the silhouette.

How is it performed?

The first step consists of extracting fat from the areas of the body where there is an excess (using very fine cannulas) by liposuction. Next, the fat undergoes treatment to ensure it is of the highest quality and produces the desired effect on the face.


  • The transferred fat is full of growth factors, which also improves the texture and luminosity of the skin.
  • As the fat comes from the client’s own body, there is no chance of rejection.
  • The results are completely natural and long-lasting.
  • It improves facial volume and skin quality.

Areas of application

  • Under the eyes.
  • Cheekbones.
  • Chin.

Recommendations and care

  • Smoking is not advisable. 
  • Excessive gesticulating should be avoided.
  • Avoid exposure to sunlight. 
  • Avoid physical exercise for a month.
  • Avoid resting on the treated areas for a month.


How old do you have to be to undergo this surgical technique?

Ideally over 18, although for congenital malformations, the surgeon may assess the possibility of surgery at an earlier age.

Can the procedure be carried out more than once?

Yes, it can be repeated as long as the recovery time between one operation and another is observed.
