Plastic surgeon John B. Harris, MD, in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, performs fat grafting under local anesthesia

For 35 years, Dr. Harris has performed structured fat grafting to replenish the facial volume lost due to weight loss or aging. He believes the most natural youthful results for facial rejuvenation comes from a combined approach of lifting and tightening the skin and tissue as well as replacing the lost volume beneath with structured fat grafting. The placement of small layers of grafted fat into the facial skin with a tiny blunt cannula, or tube, is shown to be a safe, effective, and long-lasting facial rejuvenation technique. 

Training in sculpting techniques allows Dr. Harris to artistically place fat grafts in the cheeks, jaw line, and nasolabial folds for smoother facial contours and a more youthful appearance. He reassures his patients that they will appear the way they used to look – not like a different person.

Structured fat grafting is often added to facelift procedures when Dr. Harris believes lifting and tightening alone cannot provide the best result.

Fat grafting under local anesthesia is offered as a stand-along procedure for patients who wish facial volumizing without the use of fillers. This can be performed with minimal downtime.

Dr. Harris believes that for many patients structured facial fat grafting has an additional benefit of improving the overall texture, thickness, and quality of skin.

I had a very large basal cell cancer below my left eye that left a dime sized hole after Mohs surgery. I was really concerned I would look deformed. Dr. Harris reassured me and was able to fix it so not only do my friends not notice it-neither do I. For anyone with a skin cancer I say there is no better doctor to take care of it than a plastic surgeon like Dr. Harris and the Florida Facelift and Skin Cancer Center.
