Fat Grafting

Fat grafting, also called fat transfer, plumps up facial or body features with a patient's own fat. This procedure restore subtle volume, shape and as well as rejuvenate certain areas of your body. Fat transfer is designed to minimize wrinkles and fill in parts of the face or body with a "sunken" appearance. It can also reduce scarring and correct deformities. Since fat transfer uses your own fat cells, there is no risk of the body rejecting the tissue.

Alternative to Dermal Fillers

Using your own fat to smooth out wrinkles and plump up the skin with our Fat Transfer procedures is a more natural and now increasingly popular alternative to dermal fillers. As women and men seek out the latest in cosmetic treatments, more and more patients are choosing Fat Transfer procedures as their treatment of choice over temporary dermal fillers. With one procedure, you remove the need for all those regular top-ups, leaving you to enjoy superior and natural-looking results for many years. Furthermore the stem cell technology involved – stem cells are naturally present in fat – boosts the rejuvenating effect of the treatment, helping you to look glowing and more even in tone.

  • Who is a candidate?

    People with:

    • Facial scars, such as from acne.
    • Decreased facial volume due to diseases such as hemifacial atrophy.
    • Sunken cheeks and wrinkles due to aging.
    • Small, depressed areas in sections of the body—such as around the breasts.
  • Intended Result

    Improved body contour, reduced scarring, or enhanced features.

  • Procedure Description
    • Fat transfer is performed on an outpatient basis. Both the area from which the fat is taken and the treatment site are anesthetized with a local anesthetic.
    • Using a small needle, fat is removed from an area of the body where it is tightly packed, such as the abdomen or the buttocks.
    • Once removed, the fat is processed to remove excess fluids and then re-injected just under the skin using another needle.
  • Recuperation and Healing
    • Moderate swelling usually is evident for two weeks after the procedure. Some bruising also may be apparent.
    • The surgeon usually over-corrects defects to allow for reabsorption, so the over-correction can make the patient's face look too plump or swollen for about a week.
    • Some bruising, swelling, and redness in both the area where fat was removed and in the area where it was re-injected. Patients can typically resume their normal activities right away.
