With facial fat transfer, you can trim down problem areas and put your own fat to work in other ways, such as smoothing wrinkles and tightening sagging facial skin.

Fat transfer to the face is a minimally invasive procedure that produces visible results immediately. With very little downtime, it is safe and effective with very few risks.

Renovating your appearance with fat transfer to face in Tampa has never been easier!

What Issues Can Facial Fat Grafting Address?

Fat transfer, or fat grafting, to the face can help reduce the visible signs of aging by restoring lost facial volume. As we age, skin loses volume and elasticity before starting to sag. Fat transfer to the face can restore the lost volume, tighten skin, and help return your youthful appearance.

Fat transfer to the face can address the signs of aging in many areas of the face, including:

  • Cheeks
  • Temples
  • Under eyes
  • Jawline
  • Thinning lips
  • Forehead lines
  • Tear troughs
  • Marionette lines
  • Facial scarring

Your Facial Fat Grafting Consultation with Dr. Hamwi

During your consultation, Dr. Kristopher Hamwi will take the time to understand your needs and answer your questions. He will help you determine if fat transfer is the best choice for your unique situation and individual aesthetic goals.

Before Dr. Hamwi creates your individualized plan, he will evaluate your:

  • Facial appearance
  • Quality of tissue and skin
  • Allergies or medical conditions
  • Previous procedures or medical treatments
  • General health and risk factors
  • Current medications
  • Realistic expectations and desires

What Happens During A Facial Fat Transfer?

While each fat transfer to the face procedure will vary, there are some general steps you can expect:

  • Patients are given local anesthetics.
  • Small incisions are made in the patient’s donor site, usually the abdomen or thighs, and fat is removed. Incisions are then closed and dressed.
  • The fat is processed to ensure that it is healthy and contains the correct components to survive the transfer.

The processed fat is reintroduced into the face using small, fine-gauge needles. As Dr. Hamwi understands that subtle changes can create drastic results, he will precisely choose the injection sites to revitalize and enhance your natural contours for a refreshed look.

Patients may experience swelling and bruising that lasts approximately one week following their fat transfer to face procedure.

Each patient will experience unique results. In some cases, the body reabsorbs some of the transferred fat, so follow-up procedures may be necessary to achieve optimal results.
