The goal of this procedure is to improve the aesthetic appearance of one’s face, breasts or body contour by filling in hollow, deflated areas.
Patients seeking to enhance specific zones of their face or body can sometimes do so with fat grafting. Fat can be reinjected in the cheeks to restore their fullness or in the tear troughs to remedy hollowness under the eyes. Fat grafting can also be used to reduce or improve the appearance of scars, especially where scar tissues are depressed or indented.
Fat grafting is often performed in combination with other facial procedures, such as a facelift or a blepharoplasty, for more advanced rejuvenation results.
