Why choose Fat Grafting?
As you age, your face can change dramatically. Unfortunately, facial aging means more than wrinkles and dark spots but also the loss of elasticity in the skin which can cause parts of your face to look hollow and empty. This depletion of volume can contribute to an older and more tired appearance. If you have started to see hollow spaces under your eyes and cheeks, sunken facial features, wrinkles, marionette lines, thinning lips and/or smile lines, then fat grafting may be a good procedure for you.

Who is a good candidate for Fat Grafting?
If you want to gain a more youthful facial appearance and fill in areas of your face that have lost volume, you may be a candidate for fat grafting. To ensure you are a good candidate for this procedure, Dr. English will ask you to complete a health questionnaire and will also ask you about any medications you are taking. If you are interested in facial liposuction or any other facial surgery procedures, it is important to be in good overall health, refrain from smoking and avoid excessive sun exposure before and after your surgery. Dr. English will require pre-operative blood work.
How is the Fat Grafting performed?
At English Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery Center, fat grafting surgery is typically carried out under light anesthesia and is performed at our accredited surgical facility. Fat grafting involves removing fat from a donor area such as the thighs, abdomen and/or buttocks and injecting that fat into targeted areas of the face. Only tiny amounts of fat are removed, so it is important to not equate fat grafting with liposuction. Before the donor fat is injected, it is gently hand-harvested and put through a purification process. Grafted fat has a richer blood supply for survival, so the results are smoother and long-lasting.
What is the recovery time for Fat Grafting?
Once your fat transfer is complete, you may have some slight swelling or bruising in the treated areas of the face as well as at the donor site. The swelling typically only lasts three to five days. You can expect to return to work and your normal daily activities within a couple days of your fat transfer procedure.
How much does Fat Grafting cost in Little Rock?
No two procedures are ever the same and your needs differ from everyone else’s needs. For this reason, we require that you consult with Dr. English. Once he has established a treatment plan, we can then go over the cost and discuss which method of payment might be right for you. We accept cash, personal checks, and major credit cards, in addition to multiple financing options.
Cosmetic surgery procedures are considered elective and are therefore not covered under most health insurance plans. As such, our office does not accept any form of health coverage.
