One of the changes that occurs to the face as you age is loss of volume. Many people notice their face looks gaunt with more lines and wrinkles as facial fat and collagen dissipate. Adding volume under the skin can smooth lines and fill in hollows to create a more youthful appearance. An excellent option for adding volume is with facial fat transfer, which we offer at HMS Plastic Surgery in Miami, FL.

There are many facial fillers that can be injected under the skin to add volume, but they only provide temporary results. Fat grafting or injections use your own fatty tissue to replace lost volume in the face. This can provide natural-appearing outcomes that can rejuvenate the facial appearance for years, reducing lines, wrinkles and hollows.

Rejuvenating Fat Injections

To perform facial fat transfers, fat first is harvested from another area, such as the abdomen, through a minor liposuction procedure. The fatty tissue is filtered and sterilized before it is placed in a syringe for the facial fat injections. No incisions are needed for fat grafting – the fat is injected under the skin in the desired areas. Common spots volumized by fat injections include:

  • Cheeks
  • Tear troughs
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Temples

Facial fat transfers can create youthful fullness, replacing the lost volume in the skin and facial tissues. With more volume, the face looks lifted and smoother, without the need for a lift plastic surgery. Since fat from the patient is used, not a synthetic filler, there are no risks of adverse reactions to the fat transfer. The procedure can create stunning outcomes, rejuvenating the face with long-lasting results.

My oncologist recommended Dr. Salinas for my bilateral mastectomy reconstruction and I couldn’t be more grateful. He is not only an excellent professional but also a very kind human being.

Dr. Harry Salinas is an absolutely amazing doctor! I am a petite woman and due to menopause, my breast became very large affecting my back, neck and shoulders. Dr. Salinas performed a breast reduction and breast lift surgeon. Dr. Salinas invested a significant amount of time explaining the procedure. He was incredibly accommodating as regards to my schedule. He and his staff were always available for prompt follow up on any questions. The results were far beyond my expectations. My only regret is that I waited so long to have the procedure. Dr. Salinas has changed my life! I highly recommend Dr. Salinas for his skill, professionalism, kindness and good heart!
