Five Reasons to Consider A Fat Transfer in Tampa
Due to aging or significant weight loss, patients may lose fullness or shape in certain parts of their face or body. To help restore this volume loss, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang offers fat transfer in Tampa, FL. Some areas of the body can hold onto stubborn fat more than we like, while other areas may lose volume along with skin elasticity. Thankfully, at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, we offer fat transfer treatment. We can perform fat transfers on the lips, cheeks, lower eyelids, buttocks, or breasts. For those looking for a natural treatment, versus a dermal filler or implant, we offer autologous fat transfers.
What is a fat transfer?
A fat transfer is a special treatment that works by moving pre-existing body fat to another area of the body or face. This may help solve two problems at once by slimming one region and adding volume to another. This is known as a fat graft. This multi-step process is a long-lasting natural solution for patients throughout Tampa, FL who are looking to sculpt their bodies.
Where can fat grafting be performed?
Ultimately, we can use almost any area to add or remove fat at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery. Dr. Mang will customize your procedure according to your needs and body type. Popular locations for fat removal include the thighs or abdomen. These are usually locations where patients are more likely to have excess fat that can be used for injections. Depending on each patient’s goals, the most common destination for a fat transfer is the hands, buttocks, face, or chest.

Reasons patients consider fat transfer
There are many reasons why a patient in Tampa, FL may consider a fat transfer, including:
Aging has changed the appearance of their face or hands: As we age, we lose elasticity in the skin. Fat grafting can restore a youthful look.
They’re looking for a natural way to lift their butt or increase their breast size: Not all patients want to undergo surgery. Fat transfer is a noninvasive way to improve how your body looks.
They have lines or wrinkles they want to be removed: When you start to see laugh lines, Crow’s feet, or worry lines, you may want to remove them. By injecting fat directly into these lines and creases, they will look softened and, over time, minimal, which takes years off your appearance.
They want more volume in their cheeks: A youthful look includes full cheeks. We can do a fat transfer to the face with your own fat.
They want plump, full lips: As we age, both the upper and lower lips get thinner. With fat transfer, we can inject your own fat into your lips, without the need for dermal fillers.
How does fat transfer work?
We will administer anesthesia to make you comfortable during your procedure. The type of sedation or numbing medication we use will depend on how much fat we are removing and the transfer location. Next, Dr. Mang will perform liposuction to extract the fat. We harvest and purify it inside a centrifuge. The healthy fat tissue is then injected into a specific part of the body or face. We will repeat injections until the desired look is achieved. Some patients may require another treatment in the future. You can expect minimal scarring with a fat transfer, and results typically last t 6 – 12 months, just like dermal fillers.
