Am I a candidate for facial fat grafting?
Facial fat grafting is helpful for those who want to add natural-looking volume to different parts of their face. A facial fat transfer can fill in fine lines, wrinkles, Crow’s feet, smile lines, and laugh lines too. This transferred fat reduces the appearance of scars and pitted areas, and 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 for use during this treatment.
How is facial fat grafting performed?
Facial fat grafting is a two-part process: the harvesting of fat and the injection process. Local anesthesia is used because so little fat is removed and grafted. Dr. Mang will first perform liposuction to remove fat from the different areas of the body, including the flanks, abdomen, or hips. After your fat is harvested, it is processed and inserted into different areas of the face to help you achieve your goals. We can use different injection angles and techniques to provide the best immersion rate for your skin.
