Fat grafting involves removing unwanted fat tissue from one part of the body, such as the tummy or thighs, to cosmetically enhance another part of the body. Areas that plastic surgeons have used fat grafting include the face, breasts, hands, feet, hips, and buttocks. The goal of the procedure is to improve or augment the area where the adipose fat is being injected. The fullness of these areas often diminishes as we age. With fat grafting, patients can achieve the youthful appearance they desire.Schedule Appointment
Fat grafting is an outpatient procedure and will require either local or general anesthesia, depending on the size of the area being cosmetically augmented. Fat is extracted from the body by liposuction. It is then processed and purified before being reinjected into the problem area. Fat grafting is often performed on facial areas such as the lips or under the eyes. There are many other potential applications for fat grafting. The procedure is popular for individuals who want fuller buttocks or more enhanced contours.Schedule Appointment
