Fat Injection after Facial Injectable Filler

Can I get fat injection after already having an injectable filler, such as Restylane, Juvederm, or Radiesse?

Yes.

Fat, taken from your own body, is a natural alternative to injectable fillers. It largely depends on where you were treated with the original facial filler, and where you are considering facial enhancement with fat grafting.

Generally, if you are considering adding more volume or filling wrinkles in the same area as a prior injectable filler, it’s better to wait until the first treatment if complete. Depending on the original filler, the waiting time may range from several months to over a year. The plastic surgeon will be able to better determine how much fat to transfer, since fat has the potential of permanent facial rejuvenation.

Only after a comprehensive evaluation can a plastic surgeon determine the appropriate treatment options for you.
