Give your Face its Bounce Back with Non-Surgical Facial Lipofilling
Human faces change all their lives. From losing the baby fat after the formative years to gaining more during puberty, they take new forms. They further change as we age. Facial aging is often noticeable by loss of volume due to progressive fat atrophy, which is the breakdown of fat tissue.
This often leads to the emergence of wrinkles, fine lines, folds and saggy skin, accelerated by the loss of laxity of facial tissues and decreased collagen.
In 1984, Dr. Sydney Coleman from New York described a facial aesthetic treatment called facial lipofilling. The concept was to extract adipocytes or fat cells from the patient’s body and injecting in facial regions that lack volume.
Since then, the procedure has been refined and perfected. Now, it is one of the most popular procedures that men and women both turn to. It helps bring the youthful bounce back to the face, adding volume for a revitalized look.
régénérer® Face Lipofilling at a Glance
Specializing in regenerative medicine, Dr. Khalique and his team of physicians offers ultra-precision facial fat grafting to restore the contours of your face. In essence, we are able to achieve similar results of a conventional facelift without using a scalpel to make an incision.
Both Nanofat and Microfat procedures are used to extract healthy, stem cell-rich adipose tissue from your own body. Using state-of-the-art technology, we are then able to extract stem cells and other growth factors from the fat, creating an injectable concentrate.
Using tiny needles, the concentrate is injected into the areas you’re concerned about. This adds volume to sunken facial regions, lifts folds, and diminishes fine lines and wrinkles. You can think of it as a liquid facelift.

Along with adding volume to the face, the procedure is also beneficial for the regeneration of aging skin. The stem cells in your fat encourage the repair of damaged tissue and production of natural collagen.
This brings back elasticity to your face, achieving lasting results for a more youthful appearance.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long is the procedure?
The length of the procedure changes from patient to patient. Typically, it can take up to an hour.
Will there be pain?
Since the procedure is administered by injecting needles, it will cause some amount of pain. For most patients, the sensation is similar to that of a pinch.
If you have a fear of needles, get anxious or are worried about the pain, you can opt for Pro-Nox™. This pneumatically delivered nitrous oxide helps alleviate pain and ease anxiety so you stay comfortable throughout the procedure.
Is there any rehabilitation time involved?
This non-invasive procedure has virtually no downtime. There are some precautions patients need to take such as avoiding direct sunlight for a day, not consuming alcohol, refraining from touching the face, etc.
Your physician will inform you of the care instructions and other necessary requirements during the consultation.
Will there be scarring?
The punctures from the needles do appear on the skin, but they are invisible. régénérer® procedures are performed with utmost care so there is no risk of scarring.
When will I see results?
This also changes from person to person. Once the swelling diminishes a few days after the procedures, you may start to see some results.
How long will the facial lipofilling procedure last?
In most cases, the transferred fat cells assimilate to the host location. Some of the fat will be absorbed by the body. You may even notice a slight loss of volume after six weeks. After that, the correction can be considered permanent.
If needed, the procedure can be repeated 6 months after the first one to correct any volume loss.
