Facial Fat Grafting for Men in Manhattan, NYC
Are sunken, hollow cheeks causing you concern? Facial fat grafting by board-certified Manhattan plastic surgeon and general surgeon Richard W. Swift, Jr., M.D., F.A.C.S. can help. Using your own body fat (from unwanted areas), fat can be transferred to areas of the face to build volume.
What is Facial Fat Grafting for Men?
As you age, underlying facial skin loses its integrity and wrinkles appear. This is due to the loss of some subcutaneous fat in the face. The result is an exhausted, void look. Fat grafting is a natural approach to bringing back a youthful look to your face. Also called fat transfer, the process involves moving small amounts of fat from one part of your body and reinjecting it in your face.
Benefits of Facial Fat Grafting for Men
The results of facial fat grafting for men is immediately visible. Previous candidates have reported a smoother skin less than a month after the procedure. The injected fat also fills out your face and makes you adopt a naturally looking facial profile.
With an improved appearance, you get to boost your self-confidence and self-esteem, which can enhance both your social and professional life. With fuller features, you end up with a smooth skin without any visible wrinkles. These full features add to your self-image, which results in a gratifying life.
Facial Fat Grafting for Men Before and After
Dr. Swift receives many clients who need facial fat grafting. To understand the changes that happen due to the procedure, Dr. Swift takes images of before and after photos of the clients. When you visit the clinic, you will see these pictures to have an idea of what to expect once the procedure is done. However, remember that each individual is different, and your outcome will most likely be better than what is depicted in the pictures. The results will depend on the extent of fat you have lost, or how long you have experienced the situation. Dr. Swift will explain to you what you need to expect.
How is Facial Fat Grating for Men Performed?
Quite simply, excess fat is removed from areas such as the abdomen, flanks, hips or thighs most often via liposuction, and, after special preparation, it is injected into areas of the face that need filling.
Preparing for Facial Fat Grafting for Men
Facial fat grafting for men is performed in a clinic setting with all the equipment, staff, and medications available. The process takes between one and two hours to be completed and is performed under local anesthesia. On the day of the procedure, Dr. Swift identifies and marks the areas that need to be injected with the fat. He uses a syringe to inject the fat into the areas of the face that need attention.
The points of injecting the fat into the skin are small, which eliminates the need for sutures. However, Dr. Swift will use sutures when necessary, for instance, when there is a need for quick healing.
Facial Fat Grafting for Men Recovery

During the recovery process, you can use ice packs and pain medication to manage and minimize the pain. Recovery is quick, and within two weeks you can get back to your routine duties.

- Are you showing signs of aging?
- Would you like to improve your appearance?
If you answer yes to all or some of these questions, facial fat grafting is for you.
How Much Does Facial Fat Grafting for Men Cost?
