Whether because of aging or significant weight loss, our patients lose fullness or shape in different parts of their faces or bodies. To help restore volume loss, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang offers a fat transfer in Tampa, FL, at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery. This is a natural treatment that transfers the patient’s own fat to their desired treatment areas. He is trained to offer natural-looking and long-lasting results.

What is a fat transfer?

A fat transfer is a special treatment that moves pre-existing body fat to another area of the body and/or face. This helps solve two problems at once by slimming one area and adding volume to another. This multi-step process is a long-lasting natural solution for patients in Tampa, FL who are looking to naturally and noninvasively improve their bodies.

At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, Dr. Mang can customize your procedure according to your needs and body type. Some of the most popular areas for fat are the thighs or abdomen. Depending on the goals of the patient, the most common destination for a fat transfer is the buttocks, face, or breasts.

Are you a candidate for fat transfer in Tampa, FL?

A fat transfer is great for someone who wants to:

  • Enhance the contours of their face

  • Smooth out their complexion and/or reduce signs of aging

  • Add volume to cheeks, lips, or lower eyelids

  • Improve the shape of their breasts or buttocks

Reasons patients consider a fat transfer

There are many reasons why someone in Tampa, FL may want a fat transfer, including:

  1. Aging changed how their face looks: As we age, we lose skin elasticity. Fat grafting helps restore a youthful look.

  2. They want a natural way to lift their butt or increase their breast size: Not all patients want to undergo a surgery that requires some type of recovery. Fat transfer is a noninvasive way to add volume to various body parts with minimal recovery.

  3. They have signs of aging they want to be removed: When you start to see laugh lines, Crow’s feet, or wrinkles, you will want to remove them. By injecting fat directly into these lines and creases, they will soften and, over time, fade, which will take years off your appearance.

How much fat do you need for a fat transfer?

Dr. Mang says that almost no patient is too slim for fat transfer. This is because we use techniques that allow us to evenly harvest a small amount of fat from a large surface area. It is very rare that women who have very little excess body fat may not be able to have a fat graft. However, some do choose to have breast implants or butt implants for the best results. During a consultation, we can discuss what we feel will be the best recommendation for your body and your goals.

How is fat transfer done?

First, we administer anesthesia to make you comfortable during your fat transfer procedure. Next, Dr. Mang will perform liposuction to extract the fat. We will harvest and purify it inside a centrifuge. The healthy fat tissue will then be injected into a specific part of the body or face. We will repeat injections until we achieve your desired look. Best of all, you can expect minimal scarring with a fat transfer. Results last about 6 – 12 months, much like dermal fillers.
