Fat grafting, also known as fat transfer or lipofilling, is a surgical procedure that involves removing fat from one area of the body and transferring it to another. It is done for various reasons, depending on the individual’s goals and needs. Here are common reasons why fat grafting is performed:
Fat grafting, also known as fat transfer or lipofilling, is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of fat from one area of the body (often from areas with excess fat, such as the abdomen or thighs) and then transferring and injecting it into another area where additional volume or enhancement is desired. The purpose of fat grafting is to improve the contours, shape, or volume of specific body areas, typically the face, breasts, buttocks, or hands.
The procedure typically involves the following steps:
Harvesting: Fat is harvested from the donor site using liposuction techniques. This involves making small incisions and using a cannula to suction out fat cells.
Processing: The harvested fat is processed to remove impurities and excess fluids, leaving behind only purified fat cells.
Injection: The processed fat is then carefully injected into the target area using a fine needle or cannula. The surgeon strategically places the fat to achieve the desired enhancement or augmentation.
Determining whether you are an ideal candidate for fat grafting involves several factors, including your overall health, body fat distribution, and specific aesthetic goals. Our expert team will assess your candidacy during a thorough consultation.
Adequate Fat Reserves: Candidates should have enough excess fat available for harvesting.
Realistic Expectations: Candidates should understand the potential limitations and outcomes of fat grafting.
Good General Health: Candidates should be in overall good physical health.
Non-Smoker: Ideal candidates should be non-smokers or willing to quit temporarily.
Emotional Readiness: Candidates should be emotionally prepared for the procedure.
Stable Weight: Candidates should maintain a stable and healthy body weight.
Fat grafting can enhance various areas of the body, offering a natural way to improve contours, shape, and volume. Common areas where fat grafting can be used for enhancement include:
Face: Fat grafting can rejuvenate the face by filling in wrinkles, lines, and hollow areas. It provides a youthful and refreshed appearance.
Breasts: Fat grafting can be used for breast augmentation, particularly in cases where a subtle increase in breast size is desired. It can also be used for breast reconstruction after surgery.
Buttocks (Brazilian Butt Lift): Fat grafting is a key component of the Brazilian Butt Lift, where fat is transferred to the buttocks to enhance their shape and size.
Hands: Fat grafting can restore lost volume in the hands, reducing the appearance of veins and tendons, and rejuvenating their appearance.
Scars: It can improve the appearance of scars by filling in depressions or irregularities.
Body Contours: Fat grafting can be used to refine and enhance body contours, particularly after liposuction, by filling in areas with irregularities or depressions.
Genital Area: In some cases, fat grafting can be used for cosmetic enhancement of the genital area.
Other Areas: Fat grafting can also be applied to other areas of the body based on individual needs and goals, such as the calves, ankles, or chest.

Fat grafting is a minimally invasive procedure performed under local anesthesia. This outpatient surgery minimizes discomfort and downtime.
The procedure involves precise fat placement to ensure a natural appearance. Expect a gradual improvement in the treated area’s appearance as the transplanted fat settles.
Your recovery will vary depending on the treated area. Generally, you can expect mild swelling and bruising, which should subside within a few weeks. Most patients can resume regular activities after a short period.
One of the significant advantages of fat grafting is that the results are long-lasting. As your body integrates the transplanted fat, you’ll enjoy a rejuvenated appearance for years to come.
While fat grafting is generally safe, like any procedure, it carries minimal risks, including infection, asymmetry, or fat absorption. However, these are rare and can be mitigated through proper post-operative care.
Fat grafting provides natural-looking results that enhance your features without the need for synthetic fillers. You can expect a more youthful, refreshed appearance.
The longevity of fat grafting results varies from person to person. Typically, a significant portion of the transplanted fat persists permanently, ensuring a lasting improvement in your appearance.
