About Facial Fat Grafting
We offer a variety of treatments that can refresh the beauty and contours of your face. Autologous fat transfer is a popular treatment because it offers natural-looking improvements and long-lasting benefits for the complexion. Often caused by aging, volume loss can happen around the eyes, cheeks, and jawline. Facial fat grafting can help combat the signs of aging, like volume loss. By taking unwanted fat from your body, facial fat grafting treatments add volume to help smooth facial wrinkles and folds. Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang is a skilled cosmetic surgeon who can artfully inject the fat into different parts of your face for beautiful, lasting results.

"I had breast surgery done from Dr. Mang 17 years ago, the results were amazing. I had minimal scarring. He and his staff followed up with me amazingly. Fast forward almost 20 years later, due to weight loss, weight gain, 2 more children and poor skin due to heritertly, I went back to Dr. Mang for another surgery. Again the results were perfect. In addition to excellent work, he checks on you PERSONALLY after your surgery. He is a talented surgeon. I again received exactly what I was looking for. Some people expect plastic surgeons to make them look like the housewives of Beverly Hills.. this isn’t going to happen ladies..However a good Dr. WILL create the best look and fit for you and what you have to work with."- A.L. / Google / Jun 09, 2020
"I always wanted to try out Botox, just a chicken committing because I don’t like needles; A few of my coworkers went with me to ease the idea of doing it alone.It’s important to note, they used clean and individual packages of needles for each of us and numbing cream with betadine on the spots I wanted to be injected with the filler. The process wasn’t bad at all, especially since they were doing a $9/unit special accompanied by a glass of Rose - how can I say no to that? When Dr. Mang injected my forehead and pulled out the needle, you can hear a small crunch; this is normal and Dr. Mang explained if you don’t hear this sound, it is not being done correctly. I wouldn’t have done this or brought other people unless it was anyone else than fellow Yelper, Anna M., because I trust her so much.Thank you for the opportunity - even though I got 10 units vs. 50 units of botox compared to a coworker - I feel that it was effective to iron out my wrinkles, even though I know I have minimal amount heading into my 30s. This was my X-mas gift to myself!I saw firsthand the difference for people who do have a lot of wrinkles & are young, so IMO botox is such an amazing product to help smooth out wrinkles."- J.X. / Google / Mar 01, 2020
"Dr. Brandon Mang has recently relocated his Pinellas Park office to South Tampa on Gandy Boulevard. I normally receive Botox injections from a nurse practitioner at a nearby practice. The people who have injected my Botox in the past have been quick in their process...almost too quick. Dr. Mang takes the time to discuss your areas of concern, applies numbing cream, and then marks these areas with Betadine to ensure no infection and proper placement. I chose Dr. Mang because he is an expert in his field. He and his staff are professional and friendly. Dr. Mang’s genuine bedside manner with his patients is truly one of the best I have ever encountered. He takes the time to answer all your questions and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of the procedures you are inquiring about. I highly recommend Dr. Brandon Mang for all your plastic and cosmetic surgery needs."- A.M. / Google / Feb 20, 2020

Is Facial Fat Grafting For You?
Facial fat transfer is a great option if you want to add natural-looking volume to certain parts of your face. This treatment helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles, laugh lines, smile lines, scars, and Crow's feet. Patients can also enhance the volume in their cheeks and lips with facial fat transfer. Similar to the results of a dermal filler, facial fat transfer is an excellent option if you want longer-lasting results. To be a good candidate for facial fat grafting, you should have enough fat to transfer to the face.
Fat transfer is a two-part process that includes liposuction and fat injections. Because only a small amount of fat is needed, Dr. Mang uses twilight or local anesthesia. To start, we utilize liposuction to extract unwanted fat from your hips, flanks, or abdomen. As soon as the fat is removed, we place it in a centrifuge for processing. This purifies the fat and allows us to inject it into the face. As Dr. Mang starts to place your injections, he uses various techniques and injection angles to create smoothness. Based on your treatment plan, we will inject fat into your lips, cheeks, or below your eyes to add volume and to improve the appearance of wrinkles, folds, scars, or fine lines.
What to Expect
After your fat graft, we will suture your incisions and take you to the recovery area. Dr. Mang or someone from his team will apply bandages and monitor you in the recovery room. Before sending you home, we will provide detailed aftercare instructions and schedule follow-up appointments. The follow-up appointments allow Dr. Mang to assess your recovery and ensure you are healing properly. Your recovery period will depend on the amount of fat that we transferred, and you should plan for 1 – 2 weeks of rest and recovery. At first, patients may feel sore and experience bruising and swelling near the treatment sites. You might notice some improvements right away; however, it will take several weeks before you can see your final outcomes. A small amount of fat will likely reabsorb, but with proper care, your improvements can last for several years.
Fat transfer is a wonderful way to add volume, smooth wrinkles, and accentuate your gorgeous face. If you prefer a younger-looking, glowing complexion with a short recovery time, we encourage you to learn more about facial fat grafting at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery. During your consultation with Dr. Mang, he will listen to your cosmetic concerns, design a tailored treatment plan, answer your questions, and discuss the costs and payment options for your procedure. Facial fat grafting is an exciting option for patients who want a natural treatment and long-lasting results. Please contact our Tampa, FL practice to schedule your appointment with Dr. Mang.
