If you’re starting to notice facial wrinkles and folds — but you’re not exactly thrilled at the prospect of treating them with dermal fillers — then you may be a good candidate for board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Langdon’s facial fat transfer procedure.
This minimally invasive treatment uses your body’s own fat tissue to correct and restore a youthful facial appearance. Plus, because you’re using your own fat to treat signs of facial aging, there’s no risk of an allergic reaction.

How Long Does the Facial Fat Transfer Procedure Take?
The facial fat transfer treatment is usually performed over the course of two to three hours.
During this procedure, Dr. Langdon will remove fat tissue from the donor area — typically the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks — and prepare it for the injection process. Once the fat tissue is prepared, it’s placed in a special syringe with injection cannula, which is then used to inject the fat into key facial areas.
In addition to treating signs of facial aging, this innovative fat transfer treatment can be used to treat similar signs of aging on the hands.
How Long Will Your Facial Fat Transfer Results Last?
Your facial fat transfer results can last for many years, making it a highly effective approach to treating signs of facial aging.
However, it’s important to note that while facial fat transfers can minimize signs of current aging, it cannot prevent future aging. As you get older, you may notice wrinkles and fine lines returning; in this case, it may be a good idea to undergo a maintenance treatment.
The best way to maintain your facial fat transfer results for as long as possible is to:
- Wear sunscreen
- Hydrate throughout the day
- Invest in a good skincare regimen
- Lead a low-stress lifestyle
- And more
