The Hurwitz Center for Plastic Surgery offers the most advanced techniques to help patients achieve their cosmetic goals. Using a specialized liposuction process,  our plastic surgeons can use your own cells for rejuvenating fat injections, known as lipoaugmentation, which can help patients look years younger. Our patients area have been thrilled with the anti-aging effects of this innovative procedure. Facial fat transfers are an effective way we can add youthful volume to your face and can restore the rounded contours you remember from years ago.*

About Facial Lipoaugmentation

As we age, our youthful fat facial fat stores atrophy, causing the skin to look transparent, thin, depressed, and hollow. Lipoaugmentation is used to improve contour deficiencies and atrophied tissues to create a more youthful appearance by restoring contour and elasticity to the facial skin, especially about the midface cheeks. During the 90’s, Dr. Hurwitz learned liposculpture directly from world-renowned New York City originator, plastic surgeon Sidney Colemen. Over the years they have become good friends with Dr. Hurwitz is grateful for Dr. Coleman's ongoing mentorship. Dr. Davila agrees that Lipoaugentation is most often in combination with facelift but may be performed alone to target areas. Drs. Hurwitz and Davila also applies their lipoaugmenation skills to many other regions of the body, notably the buttocks, breasts, Pectoralis muscles, hands, and legs. Contact the Hurwitz Center for more information.

Treatment Areas

A fat transfer or lipaugmentation procedure is effective for:

  • Plumping lips and cheeks
  • Smoothing wrinkles around the mouth
  • Filling nasolabial wrinkles
  • Reducing undereye bags
  • Improving the appearance of tear troughs
  • Treating forehead lines and filling in temples

Many patients can achieve a significantly enhanced appearance with one, minimally-invasive procedure, without the need for a full facelift.*

Treatment

Our plastic surgeons many years of experience performing all types of facial plastic surgery and non-surgical treatments. Dr. Hurwitz has impressive credentials and training in fat transfers, including personal training from the renowned originator of lipoaugmentation, New York plastic surgeon Dr. Sydney Coleman. Both Drs. Hurwitz and Davila perform facial lipoaugmentation in their outpatient surgical center. Most patients can remain comfortable during the procedure with use of local (numbing) anesthesia only, but further sedation options are also available.

Initially, a small amount of fat is removed from the body using a special liposuction technique. This method is different from body contouring liposuction and is specifically designed to preserve the integrity of living cells. The fat retains its rich blood supply, ensuring long-term survival after the transfer. Using a tiny blunt needle and his keen eye for aesthetics, the Plastic Surgeons inject fat into the face to achieve the desired effect and natural-looking results. There is little downtime required after the procedure, and you can typically expect to enjoy results the same day. Some minor swelling is possible, but should subside in a day or two.*
