Are you suffering from volume loss in your cheeks and face due to aging? At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, we offer facial fat grafting, which helps improve how your face looks. Fat grafting in Tampa, FL offers natural, long-lasting results to those wanting to fix lost volume and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. A fat transfer to face procedure offers facial rejuvenation by injecting fat into the face, including the cheeks or lips. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang removes extra fat from your body and uses it to increase your face volume and resolve your sunken cheeks.

Am I a candidate for facial fat grafting?

Facial fat grafting helps individuals who want to add natural-looking volume to their faces. A fat transfer to cheeks procedure fills fine lines, wrinkles, Crow’s feet, smile lines, and laugh lines too. This transferred fat improves how your cheeks and lips look. To be a candidate for a facial fat transfer at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Tampa, FL, you must have enough excess fat on your body to harvest to be used during this treatment.

How is facial fat grafting performed?

Facial fat grafting is a two-part process. The first step is the harvesting of fat, and the second is the injection process. We use local anesthesia as so little fat is removed and grafted. Dr. Mang first performs liposuction to remove fat from the different areas of the body, including the abdomen, flanks, or hips. After the fat is harvested, it is processed and inserted into different portions of the face. He uses different injection angles and techniques to offer the best immersion rate for your particular skin.
