Time takes its toll on our features and our skin. If you have volume loss, Pinnacle Plastic Surgery’s fat grafting may be a solution for you. Fat grafting is an option for many patients who want to achieve a restored, fuller, and more youthful-looking appearance.
Fat grafting is also known as autologous fat translation or micro-lipoinjection. During fat grafting, fat cells are extracted from your problem areas like the abdomen, back, or thighs and re-injected in the buttocks, breasts, hands, or other desired areas. The Pinnacle surgical team uses special harvesting and grafting techniques to restore volume with natural-looking results.
Fat Grafting FAQs
Fat grafting is a minimally invasive procedure and, like fillers, only involves a series of injections into the body. It is a two-part procedure that involves removing small amounts of fat from the abdomen, thighs, or other parts of the body using a very small cannula. The fat is then prepared and injected into the recipient site with a needle.
While some treatments require a recovery period, many patients resume normal activities right after fat grafting. Expect minor swelling, bruising, or redness in both donor and recipient sites.
Fat transplants help you achieve natural-looking results by elevating sagging tissues. The procedure results typically last for one year or more; therefore, repeated injections may be necessary.
