  • How many years of training and experience do you have in this field?

  • Where would you perform my facial fat grafting surgery, and do you have staff privileges at a local hospital or a surgery center?

  • Is your support staff qualified and trained to assist during my surgery?

  • Do I make a suitable candidate for facial fat grafting, or would you recommend an alternative procedure?

  • Are there any non-surgical aesthetic procedures or less invasive alternatives that can substitute facial fat grafting?

  • Which areas would you consider for liposuction in my case to extract donor fat for the face?

  • Can you provide me with a few facial fat grafting before and after images to have a clearer understanding of the expected results?

  • Can I talk to one of your staff members or have a brief office tour to better familiarize myself with your practice?

  • Will you perform the facial fat grafting surgery using general or local anesthesia?

  • Is your office well-equipped to handle an emergency?

  • Can I meet you during all my visits to your office for this procedure?

Questions about Costs, Insurance, Financing

Facial fat grafting is typically performed as an elective surgery with no insurance coverage. However, if the facial volume loss has occurred due to a disease or an injury, insurance coverage may be possible.

These aspects should be reviewed with the surgeon during the initial consultation. The patient should frankly ask about the costs involved, including pre- and post-op expenses, payment methods and financing options, if any.
