Restoring lost volume to an aging face is a very popular concept these days. What many people don’t realize is that we all carry with us the original volumizing agent – our own fat. We feel that it provides a natural and potentially much longer lasting alternative to synthetic fillers. At our Tampa practice, we combine fat transfer with a facelift to tighten and lift sagging tissue and restore a more youthful contour while maintaining a natural look.
At Elite Facial Plastic Surgery, we strive to provide you with a simple yet fulfilling experience. To learn more about fat transfer procedures, please request a complimentary consultation online, or call our office at 813-975-3223. We look forward to helping you improve your appearance and your confidence.

Fat Transfer Procedure
Fat injections have been available for many years. However, newer and more refined techniques such as lipostructure, have greatly improved the efficacy and longevity of fat transfer procedures. This procedure requires harvesting excess fat from another part of the body which is injected immediately, rather than injecting frozen fat which usually provides correction for only a short time. All patients receive treatment in our state-of-the-art fully accredited facility.
Autologous fat (the patient’s own fat) is meticulously injected to correct volume deficiencies in a variety of areas, which include:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Corners of the mouth
- Tear troughs (under the eyes)
- Frown lines between the brows
Lipostructure provides facial re-contouring using the most natural method – the patient’s own tissue.
Most fat transfer patients can enjoy a quick recovery with only slight discomfort. After your fat transfer, you may experience swelling or bruising for about a week or two. We recommend that you take a few days to a week off from work after your fat transfer procedure, and limit vigorous activities for at least 2 weeks. Dr. Dominic will detail any specific instructions during your consultation.
