Volume loss in the face is a significant component of aging, as fat that provides a healthy youthful facial contour is redistributed and diminished over time. Dr. Andrea Garcia and Dr. Josh Surowitz are dual board-certified, fellowship-trained facial plastic surgeons. With their extensive training and years of experience in facial rejuvenation, they are uniquely qualified to deliver uncompromising results to correct this volume loss with your body’s natural fat using facial fat transfer. At Dilworth Facial Plastic Surgery we strive for long-lasting natural results to revitalize the face by recreating youthful facial contours.
Restore Lost Volume on the Face with Fat Grafting
While dermal fillers are available to address this problem, facial fat transfer is a sophisticated method that uses a patient’s own fat, collected from elsewhere on the body and purified, to serve as a replacement for the lost facial volume. Fat transfer may be thought of as a “living filler.” Once the fat has “taken,” it is permanent. Although, like other areas of fat in the body, it will grow or diminish with weight gain or weight loss
Dr. Garcia and Dr. Surowitz have dedicated their entire career to performing cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the face, eyes, ears, neck, and nose. Their knowledge and years of experience with facial rejuvenation allow them to approach each patient as an individual with unique needs and desires. Our surgeons pride themselves on delivering trendsetting, personalized care with the highest-quality results.
