What is Fat Grafting?
Fat grafting is an innovative cosmetic procedure that uses your body’s own fat to augment key facial areas that may have lost volume over time as a result of:
- Weight loss
- Hormonal changes
- And more
During a fat grafting procedure, your plastic surgeon removes a specific amount of fat from a donor area of your body (usually the abdomen, thighs, or another area with high-density fat tissue). This fat is cleansed and placed into a special injector tool, which is used to directly inject the fat in the desired treatment areas.
Fat grafting is an excellent choice for candidates who want to treat the following cosmetic issues:
- Dark under eye hollows
- Sagging skin
- Hollow cheeks
- Facial folds
- Moderate wrinkles
- And more
Fat grafting can help create a more youthful appearance that doesn’t look fake or frozen.
Best of all, because you’re using your own fat tissue for the procedure, there’s absolutely no risk for rejection or an allergic reaction (which can occasionally occur with dermal fillers or a synthetic facial implant).
