What Is Facial Fat Grafting?

Facial fat grafting is a century old medical procedure that was used to save lives in the case of disfigurements. Today, in the case of car crash victims, facial fat grafting is an invaluable medical and cosmetic tool to correct defects in the skin and reshape aspects of the face.

It can be used to change the shape of the lips, hide facial scars, address dynamic wrinkles and fill out hollow cheekbones to make them plump and whole once again. Facial fat grafts use the fat in the body and redistributes them from an area of abundance to an area of scarcity.

Fat Grafting With The Most Natural Filler

Your fat contains your body’s most abundant source of stem cells. These cells are ideal for injecting into your body without risk of infections or side effects.

This procedure works by first using anaesthesia. The fat is liposuctioned away and then the very same fat is made clean, sterile, and safe for reintroducing back into your body. That fat is re-administered back into the body via injections.

This technique works best on:

  • The face
  • The hands
  • The breasts
  • The buttocks
  • The cheekbone area
  • The back
  • The thighs

Facial fat grafting is an indispensable tool for face procedures and aesthetic improvement using the safest filler everyone possesses: their own fat. You can use it strategically to improve areas that need plumping while slimming down problem areas at the same time.

If you’d like to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, acne, and scars on your face, consult your doctor today to see if facial fat grafting is viable for you.
