Fat grafting, also known as fat transfer, is a surgical procedure in which fat is removed from one part of the body (usually the abdomen, hips, or thighs) and then injected into another area that needs volume or contouring. Here are some common uses of fat grafting:
Facial rejuvenation: Fat grafting can be used to restore volume to the face, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, lines, and sunken areas. It is often used in combination with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as facelifts or eyelid surgery.
Breast augmentation: Fat grafting can be used to increase the size of the breasts, either as an alternative to breast implants or to improve the results of a previous breast augmentation.
Body contouring: Fat grafting can be used to improve the contour and shape of the body, such as filling in depressions or enhancing curves.
Scar revision: Fat grafting can be used to fill in depressions or contour irregularities caused by scars.
Hand rejuvenation: Fat grafting can be used to restore volume to the hands, reducing the appearance of veins and tendons.
Buttock augmentation: Fat grafting can be used to enhance the size and shape of the buttocks, also known as a Brazilian Butt Lift.
