Facial Sculpting - Northern Virginia, Maryland, Washington DC
The board certified plastic surgeons at The Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery serving Northern Virginia, Maryland and Washington, DC can offer you a more youthful, rested and vibrant appearance after a facial sculpting (liposuction) or fat transfer procedure.
Facial sculpting can be done to restore a more youthful look or to simply enhance a feature you're unhappy with. Through either liposuction or fat transfer your face and neck area can be sculpted to give you a defined jawline and neck area.
For example, by removing your buccal fat pads and utilizing liposuction, your features can be transformed to a more youthful and elegant shape.
One of the latest and most exciting techniques is fat transfer to your face. The most popular sites for fat transfer are the folds beside the nose wrinkles, acne scars, and the cheeks and chin.
