At Solomon Cosmetic Center in Tampa, FL, the facial fat transfer process is a cosmetic surgery procedure in which fat is removed from one area of the body such as the stomach or buttocks and then injected into the face to reduce the appearance of aging. It plumps the face and rejuvenates your look.

George Solomon, M.D., uses facial fat transfer to plump the lips, cheeks, chin, and bags under the eyes as well as fill depressed scars or lessen lines from aging. When performed properly, a large percentage of the injected fat cells will survive.

Fat from one area of the body such as the buttocks, thighs, or stomach is extracted using a liposuction cannula. The fat cells are then treated or spun in a centrifuge to remove damaged cells or other fluid. This process prepares the fat for reintroduction into the body. The most common donor areas, where fat is taken from, are the stomach, thighs, and waist. The healthy, concentrated fat cells are then injected in the area of the face that you wish to plump, fill, or rejuvenate such as lip and nasolabial folds. Fat transfer can also be used for breast augmentation. Results of the procedure may not be visible immediately due to swelling and bruising in the treated areas. Full results may not be seen until two months after the procedure. After a fat transfer, the body will absorb some of the injected fat cells. However, some of the fat cells remain although those cells will still continue to age with your face from that point forward.


You will experience some tightness in your face as well as soreness, pain, swelling and bruising where the fat was injected and also where the fat was removed. Full recovery can take up to one month. Dr. George Solomon will create a specific plan for recovery from a fat transfer procedure.
Each patient is unique; therefore, results of treatment may vary.
Ask Dr. Solomon, the best cosmetic surgeon in the Tampa Bay area, if facial fat transfer is for you. He and his staff treat each patient with dignity and respect while helping him or her to achieve the desired results. Call to schedule your appointment at Solomon Cosmetic Center in Tampa, FL.

I have picked and utilized Dr. Solomon for many surgeries, as a 44 year old woman I wanted to enhance and fix some of the aging on my face and body. Dr. Solomon and his staff for the last several years have been great to work with and made me feel comfortable on all visits. He has the best bedside manners and the nurses care about your overall experience and aftercare. I highly recommend and will continue to go to his practice for all my plastic surgery and Botox needs.

By far the best experience I’ve had with a surgeon in his profession and office staff! The entire team at Solomon Cosmetic ROCKS! I started my journey with them back in September of 2020, after searching extensively for a great surgeon in my area to do a BBL. From day one Dr. Solomon and all his office staff were very inviting, warm, engaged, and helpful in explaining any and all questions and concerns I had about the procedure I was inquiring about.

Excellent staff and very honest doctor. Dr. Solomon does not lead the patient one way or the other, like a few other Doctors I have spoken with.i believe his reviews speak for this practice. I will definitely return.
