The technique of fat grafting has significantly enhanced the results that plastic and cosmetic surgeons can achieve with a number of various procedures. Fat grating has a number of applications, is minimally invasive, and is an exciting technique for facial rejuvenation, breast reconstruction, and soft-tissue voids. Autologous fat grafting is performed by carefully harvesting the fat with liposuction from your abdomen, hips, thighs, or buttocks. This is an added benefit for most patients when undergoing this procedure. The fat is then delicately processed to remove everything except your own body’s fat cells. The concentrated fat is then injected with small needles eliminating the need for any incision. Some overcorrection is required as not all of the fat injected survives and depending on the indication, a second stage of fat grafting may be required.
