Fat grafting is an advanced technique offered at our plastic surgery practice. Many of our patients have chosen this procedure over a more invasive procedure like facelift surgery. The fat grafting process involves removing 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 youthful volume that diminishes with 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 volume, eliminating the risk of allergic reaction. Fat grafting is usually performed using brief sedation to avoid discomfort.
