Fat Grafting or Lipofilling

Patient’s own fat (autologous fat ) can be used as a filler in the face and/or body through the fat grafting procedure lipofilling or injection of fat. Use of your own fat requires a more extensive procedure than other injectable fillers. You must first be to a small liposuction to extract the fat before the injection.

Fat grafting eliminates the risk of allergic reaction or rejection by the body. It is known that not all living fat cells survive when transplanted to a new location. You can expect a variable rate of absorption and it is possible that the procedure may be repeated if necessary.
