What is Autologous Fat Grafting?
In a three step process where fat is removed, cleansed and then purified- autologous fat grafting is a revolutionary technique in which small amounts of fat are excised from a donor area and then transferred to a recipient site. The fat is permanently transferred from the abdomen or thigh.
What are the treatment options?
Fat grafts are most commonly performed on areas of the face and to repair previous procedures which did not yield desired results. Transfers are most successful when small amounts of fat are injected at a time, and when the procedure is repeated in 2-3 month increments. The number of treatments varies from patient to patient.
What else should I know?
The procedure is most commonly performed in one of our minor procedure rooms located in a fully accredited, day surgical facility. With aesthetic surgery, results can vary greatly from patient to patient, and as such it is important for those considering this procedure to be familiar with the possible outcomes.
All surgical procedures require an initial consultation appointment. For more information or to schedule your appointment please call Soderstrom Skin Institute at 1-888-970-7546.
