What is Fat Grafting?
Fat grafting, sometimes known as fat transfer, is a procedure that removes fat from one part of the body and injects it into another. Typically this procedure will use fat from the hips, thighs, or abdomen and inject it into the face to plump hollow areas and smooth wrinkles.
The procedure begins with a mini-liposuction of the area with extra fat. Next, the fat is purified and prepared for injection. Lastly, the fat is injected into the face.
