How is the Rejuveface™ performed?

Dr. Shu performs the Rejuveface™ under a local anesthetic and light sedation. He will do the Vaser Hi Def Liposcupturing procedure to contour face first, and then do standard liposuction in the donor site (usually abdomen, buttock and thigh). Finally he performs the micro-injection with structural fat grafting technique. Small amounts (less than 0.1 cc at a time) of fat are carefully microinjected in a series of discrete layers to gradually build new soft tissue structure and facial contour.
