Fat Grafting

Enhance and restore a more youthful appearance!

Fat grafting involves two separate procedures. First, fat is removed from unwanted areas, such as the abdomen, waist or thighs using liposuction. The fat is then used to shape or fill other areas of the face or body.

Where are the most common sites for fat grafting?

Fat injections can be used on the face much like any filler, adding volume to the lips or cheeks, and filling in marionette lines and deep wrinkles.

The Brazilian Butt lift involves injecting larger volumes of harvested fat into the buttocks to create a fuller, curvaceous bottom. Fat can also be placed in the back of the hand to create a more youthful appearance.

What will I experience after the treatment?

People have little discomfort with fat grafting.  However, some swelling and bruising are usually noted for the first two to three days.

How long will the fat graft last?

Fat cells are living tissue. Typically 60% of cells transferred will survive each transfer procedure. The cells will gain or loose volume just like any other fat cells in your body, so diet and exercise can lead to their shrinking. It is common for patients to undergo a second procedure a few months after the initial transfer to achieve best results. At the time of fat harvest, any excess fat is saved, and may be used for future procedures.

How long does the procedure take?

Smaller areas of liposuction and grafting take one to two hours.  A Brazilian butt lift can take up to three hours.

Does it require general anesthesia?

Facial fat grafting can be done completely under local anesthetic, or if the patient wishes, IV sedation. General anesthesia or an IV solution is typically used for a Brazilian Butt Lift.
