Fat grafting, also known as autologous fat transfer, is a surgical procedure that involves harvesting excess fat cells from one area of the body and transferring those cells to another area with a deficiency of adipose tissue. The fat cells will be harvested through a process that is similar to liposuction but is more gentle, helping retain the quality of the fat cells.
The harvested fat cells can be used to treat areas such as the malar region, the area under the eyes, the lips, and the nasolabial folds. Unlike dermal fillers, fat grafting requires only one treatment and provides permanent benefits. Transferring fat can provide more dramatic and natural-looking results than dermal fillers. The treatment can be customized to fit the individual needs and goals of a patient.
