Also known as fat grafting or fat injection
A fat grafting procedure transfers fat from areas in which you have excess fat, such as the tummy and outer thighs, and injects it into areas that may be lacking in volume, such as your face, lips, breasts, hands or buttocks. This safe, long-lasting, well-tolerated procedure produces natural-looking results. Every year, thousands of people undergo successful fat grafting and are pleased with the results. Over 60% of plastic surgeons now combine some form of fat grafting with a face-lifting procedure.
When to Consider Fat Transfer
- If you have facial areas that appear creased and sunken, such as the cheeks, chin, jowls, around the eyes, temporal areas
- If you desire more permanent correction than is provided by temporary fillers such as Hyaluronic Acid, Hydroxy-Apatite and Poly-L Lactic Acid
- If you wish to improve your body contour, revise scars, fill bodily depressions and rejuvenate your hands and face
- For use in breast reconstruction, to fill in contour irregularities or hide obvious signs of breast implants such as rippling, or to enlarge your breasts without the use of implants.
