Facial Fat Grafting in San Diego

Facial fat grafting is an extremely effective method for creating a more youthful facial appearance. In this procedure, the patients own fat is extracted from the buttocks, abdomen, saddle bags, or some other area where it will not be missed. After preparing the fat, Dr. Mark Mofid then injects the extracted fat into areas of the face where fat has been lost in the aging process. Dr. Mofid uses this technique to improve the appearance of a long and gaunt face, an asymmetrical face, or sunken eyes or cheeks. Dr. Mofid listens carefully to each patient to understand his or her concerns fully and then applies facial fat grafting techniques to achieve the aesthetic results desired. Because the patients own natural fat is used in facial fat grafting, there are no synthetic fillers used and the results can be more natural-looking. Frequently, patients of Dr. Mofid choose to combine this procedure with facelift surgery for complete anti-aging makeovers.
