Are you looking for an experienced plastic surgeon offering facial fat transfers near the Bethesda area? Many of the natural contours of the face are formed by fat under the skin. With age, the face can lose some of this subcutaneous fat that adds volume and fullness under the skin. The result can be sagging, lines and wrinkles, as well as a change to the facial shape and contours. One facial cosmetic option to restore volume to the face for a rejuvenating effect is facial fat transfers. Maia Plastic Surgery offers facial fat transfers as one of our cosmetic procedures at our clinic near Chevy Chase, MD, near Bethesda, MD.

There are many options to add volume under the facial skin with dermal fillers, but these treatments are temporary. Facial fat transfers offer a longer-lasting solution using the patient’s own fat stores to add more volume to the face. The fat can be harvested from another area of the body, as the abdomen, buttocks or other fatty areas can be used. The fat is sterilized and injected into the desired areas on the face to restore youthful volume.

Benefits of Facial Fat Injections

There are a few different areas where fat transfers are commonly used on the face. The upper cheeks are one of the areas that lose subcutaneous fat, causing hollows under the eyes and a sunken appearance to the face. A facial fat transfer can be used as a cheek enhancement to restore youthful contours to the face. The lips can also be enhanced with fat injections, creating plump, sexy lips that last.

Facial fat transfers are a safe and effective treatment to add lasting volume to the face to combat aging. If you are interested in learning more about facial fat injections, grafting or transfers, contact us at Maia Plastic Surgery near the Bethesda area. We can schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Maia to discuss our facial cosmetic treatments and surgeries for adding facial volume.

Dr. Maia and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!


I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
