What is Fat Grafting?

During fat grafting, fat tissue is transferred from one area of the patient’s body to another. It is most common to transfer fat from the abdomen to the face and hands to fill in wrinkles or defects.

Also Known As:

  • Fat transfer
  • Liposuction
  • Microlipoinjection
  • Fat injection
  • Lipofilling

Conditions Treated with Fat Grafting:

Fat grafting can be used in cases of wrinkles and acne scars.

Non-Surgical or Other Surgical Alternatives to Fat Grafting:

Anti-aging skincare products are non-surgical alternatives to fat grafting. Surgical alternatives include dermabrasion, microdermabrasion, face lift, thread lift, injection therapy, collagen replacement therapy and chemical skin peel.

Anesthesia with Fat Grafting:

Fat grafting is performed with a local anesthetic.

Potential Complications from Fat Grafting:

Possible risks following fat grafting include blood clots, infection, nerve damage, scarring, bleeding and a negative reaction to the anesthesia.

Prognosis after Fat Grafting:

The prognosis for a positive end result following fat grafting is good. However, fat is reabsorbed into the body, so the results may only last for a year or less.
