Fat grafting is an advanced technique offered in our plastic surgery practice by Dr. James Vogel. Many patients at our Baltimore, Maryland practice choose this procedure over a more invasive procedure like a facelift. It involves taking fat from an area such as the stomach, inner knees or thighs, purifying it and grafting it into the cheekbones and around the mouth to restore the youthful fat that is lost due to age.
This procedure can also be used to enhance the volume and shape of your lips. A long-term enhancement, this procedure allows you to use your own tissue for facial enhancement, eliminating the risk of allergic reaction. Fat grafting is usually performed using brief sedation to avoid discomfort.
