A Look at Fat Grafting

Plastic Surgery Scottsdale

In cosmetic surgery, fat grafting is also known as fat transfer or fat injection. Fat grafting involves moving fat from one part of the body to another. The technique is designed to make one part of the body look thinner and smoother. Dr. Geoghegan then deposits that fat into another area that a woman prefers to enhance. This plastic surgery technique is both safe and effective. Read on to learn more about fat grafting, including good candidates, common procedures, and notable benefits.

Good Candidates
In plastic surgery, fat grafting is ideal for filling in areas that you would prefer have a bit more augmentation. For that reason, plastic surgeons usually recommend fat grafting for women who would like to enhance their lips, the contours of their cheeks, their breasts or buttocks, or indentations in the skin following liposuction. Fat grafting is also ideal to plump the lips or erase fine lines in the hands. Fat grafting does require that an individual have sufficient fat in donor sites to contribute to volume-deficient areas.

Common Procedures
Common fat grafting procedures include facial fat transfer, breast augmentation, and buttock augmentation, also called a Brazilian buttlift. With facial fat transfer, Dr. Geoghegan is able to fill in facial creases, including laugh lines, cheeks, and smile lines. Fat is generally removed from the abdomen or thighs and then injected into the face. Sunken-in cheeks, lines between the nose and mouth, and forehead wrinkles can also be filled in. Fat transfer can make the breasts and buttocks appear rounder and fuller.

Notable Benefits

Plastic surgeons recommend fat transfer because fat is taken from your own body, which reduces your chances of reacting badly to a foreign substance. Additionally, results are long lasting and natural.
