Natural Beauty with Fat Grafting by Dr. JoAnne Lopes

When it comes to rejuvenating and enhancing your appearance, the solution may already lie within you. Fat grafting, an innovative procedure offered by the renowned Dr. JoAnne Lopes in Virginia Beach, artfully utilizes your body’s natural resources to restore volume and contour to desired areas. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Lopes’ mastery in fat grafting has made her one of the most sought-after professionals in the field.

Fat grafting is a cutting-edge treatment that involves harvesting fat cells from one part of your body, purifying them, and then strategically injecting them into areas that might need volume or contouring. Whether it’s the subtle restoration of youthful plumpness to the face, enhancing the curvature of the buttocks, or revitalizing the hands, Dr. Lopes’ expertise ensures results that are both natural-looking and long-lasting.

What sets fat grafting apart, especially as performed by Dr. Lopes, is the personalized approach. Every body is unique, and Dr. Lopes takes the time to understand your individual goals and anatomy, crafting a plan that is uniquely tailored to you. Unlike artificial fillers, fat grafting uses your body’s natural materials, minimizing the risk of allergic reactions and ensuring a more harmonious result.

At Dr. Lopes’ Cosmetic Surgery Center, achieving the look you’ve always desired isn’t just a dream—it’s a reality that’s within your reach. Contact us today to schedule a consultation, and let Dr. Lopes guide you on a transformational journey that leverages your body’s own beauty to create a more confident, radiant you.

Benefits of Fat Grafting with Dr. Lopes

Natural Results:

Fat grafting uses your own body fat to enhance and reshape specific areas, ensuring that the results look and feel completely natural, blending seamlessly with your existing contours.

Dual Benefit:

This procedure not only enhances the targeted area but also allows for the removal of unwanted fat from another part of the body. It’s a two-in-one benefit, sculpting one area while augmenting another.

Minimally Invasive:

Fat grafting is a minimally invasive procedure, meaning shorter recovery times and less discomfort compared to more extensive surgeries. You can get back to your daily routine more quickly, with less noticeable scarring.


Fat grafting can be applied to various parts of the body, including the face, breasts, and buttocks. This flexibility makes it an ideal choice for individuals looking to address multiple concerns through a single procedure.

Long-Lasting Impact:

Under the expert care of Dr. JoAnne Lopes, fat grafting offers long-lasting and durable results. Unlike temporary fillers, the effects of fat grafting can be permanent, giving you the lasting enhancement you desire without the need for continual maintenance.

Our patients glow, and their reviews shine!

Are You a Candidate for Fat Grafting with Dr. JoAnne Lopes?

Determining if you are an ideal candidate for fat grafting involves a thorough consultation with Dr. Lopes, where your unique needs, goals, and medical history will be considered. Typically, good candidates for fat grafting:

  • Have Adequate Fat Reserves: Since the procedure requires fat to be harvested from one area of the body to be used in another, candidates should have enough excess fat in areas like the abdomen, thighs, or flanks.

  • Desire Natural Enhancement: Individuals looking for a natural way to enhance or reshape specific areas of the body without synthetic implants may find fat grafting to be the perfect solution.

  • Are in Good Overall Health: A healthy body can better handle the surgery and heal effectively, ensuring optimal results. Those without significant medical conditions that could affect healing are often ideal candidates.

  • Have Realistic Expectations: Understanding what fat grafting can achieve and maintaining realistic expectations about the results is essential. Dr. Lopes will ensure you have a clear vision of what to expect from the procedure during your consultation.

  • Non-Smokers: Smoking can negatively impact the healing process, so non-smokers or those willing to quit before and after the surgery tend to have better outcomes.

If fat grafting sounds like the right choice for you, don’t hesitate to reach out to Dr. Lopes’ Cosmetic Surgery Center in Virginia Beach. Schedule your personalized consultation today and take the first step toward the enhanced appearance you’ve been dreaming of. Dr. Lopes’ expertise in this innovative procedure ensures a tailored approach that puts your unique needs and desires at the forefront of your transformation.

Semaglutide Weight Loss Program

A high BMI can sometimes pose challenges to both safety and results, we are proud to offer a comprehensive Weight Loss Program for patients with a BMI over 35. Central to this program is the use of Semaglutide, an FDA-approved medication known for its efficacy in weight management. Semaglutide works by mimicking a hormone that targets areas of the brain which regulate appetite and food intake. When integrated with a balanced diet and regular physical activity, our Semaglutide Weight Loss Program can be a powerful tool for achieving a healthier weight, making you a better candidate for surgery, and paving the way for optimal surgical outcomes.
