Fat Grafting

Fat grafting also referred to as fat transfer or fat injections, a surgical process where fat from an area is transferred to another. It aims to remove unwanted fat from a specific area to another in fill in volume-deficient areas. To be able to, the donor sites must have enough fat to be taken. Patients must be of a healthy weight and without any form of circulatory problems, medical conditions, or smoking.

In fat grafting, fat tissue is removed from other parts of your body — usually your thighs, belly, and buttocks — by liposuction. The tissue is then processed into liquid and injected into other areas. Fat grafting can be explained as a three-stage process:

  • Harvest
  • Purify and Transfer
  • Place

It is considered a safe, long-lasting and well-tolerated procedure where many people undergo successful fat grafting and are pleased with the results.
