Can Facial Fat Grafting Improve Volume Loss Around My Eyes?
At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, we offer different surgical procedures that can help improve how the face looks. Facial fat grafting in Tampa, FL gives natural and long-lasting results to patients wanting to improve lost volume due to aging. Facial grafting helps decrease the appearance of signs of aging by injecting fat into the face. By removing extra fat from a patient’s body, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang reinjects this fat to different areas of the face to resolve volume loss in the face, and around and under the eyes. This eye rejuvenation can help fix sagging under the eyes.
Am I a good candidate for facial fat grafting?
Facial fat grafting helps patients who want to add natural-looking volume to areas of their face. A facial fat transfer can successfully fill in fine lines, wrinkles, Crow’s feet, smile lines, and laugh lines. To be a candidate for a facial fat transfer at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, you must have enough excess fat on your body to achieve your goals for your fat transfer to face procedure.
How do we perform facial fat grafting?
Facial fat grafting is a two-part process: fat harvesting and injection. We use local anesthesia because so little fat is removed and grafted. First, Dr. Mang performs liposuction to remove fat from different areas of the body, including the abdomen, flanks, or hips. After this fat is harvested, it is processed and inserted into different areas of the face, including around the eyes. He uses different injection angles and techniques to provide the best immersion rates for each patient in Tampa, FL.
