A natural solution to facial enhancement – natural fat grafting.

If you would like to address wrinkles and volume loss in the face, but do not want to use products that are foreign to the body, a natural fat transfer may your answer. Dr. Paul N. Afrooz uses his extensive knowledge of cosmetic procedures to deliver patients safe and natural-looking results. Dr. Afrooz offers fat transfer and injections to men and women from the Miami, Boca Raton, Deerfield Beach, Delray Beach, and Fort Lauderdale areas of South Florida.

What is a fat transfer?

Our Miami fat transfer, also called fat grafting, is a cosmetic procedure that adds volume to specific areas of the face—similar to how dermal fillers work but performed with purified fat from your own body. This involves the fat being harvested from an area of the body with excess fat. It is then purified and carefully injected into the face to increase volume and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. This technique is commonly used on the cheeks and jawline, as well as deep smile lines. Fat transfers can also:

  • Reduce crow's feet
  • Smooth undereye bags or a sunken look beneath your eyes
  • Add volume to your temples

What Can I expect from a fat transfer procedure?

Your Miami facial fat transfer procedure begins harvesting fat cells from another part of your body via liposuction. Fat is typically harvested from waist, thighs, flanks or another area with excess, with an added benefit – an improvement in your body contour. Once removed, the fat is purified and re-injected using a very fine needle. These injections are performed with the utmost care and precision by Dr. Afrooz, one of Miami's top facial plastic surgeons.

Dr. Afrooz's Signature 4D Lift Explained

Facial aging occurs in several distinct ways, so a successful face and neck lift must be comprehensive and multidimensional. Gone are the days of a simple "nip-tuck" facelift. Here I explain how my Signature 4D Lift rejuvenates the face by (1) reducing skin laxity, (2) tightening the underlying musculature, (3) eliminating fullness in the neck, and (4) reintroducing youthful volume.

Let the magic happen: Rest and recover

After a fat transfer in Miami, you may experience mild bruising and swelling where the fat was extracted. You may also experience mild swelling in the face, which can last for a few days. However, after approximately two weeks, the results are visible. We recommend taking about a week off from work, as well as avoiding exercise and other physical activity until two weeks after your procedure. This gives the body enough time to heal properly without placing it under unnecessary stress.

You will need to:

  • Keep your head elevated for three to five days.
  • Apply antibiotic ointment as directed.
  • Take mild pain medication for any discomfort.
  • Sleep on a wedge or extra pillows, putting no pressure on the treated area.
