Fat Grafting Treatments
What are Fat Grafting Treatments?
This treatment involves removing fat from one area of the body, typically the abdomen or thighs, and transferring it to another area that may benefit from added fullness, such as the cheeks, lips, hands and even breasts. In fact, fat grafting can be a natural and safe alternative to traditional breast augmentation, using your own tissue instead of implants. Fat grafting treatments are safe, minimally invasive, and offer long-lasting results that can help you achieve a more youthful, radiant appearance.
If you're looking for a natural, effective way to enhance your features and restore volume, fat grafting may be the right choice for you.
How do Fat Grafting Treatments work?
During the procedure, a small amount of fat is harvested from one area of your body, such as the abdomen or thighs, and then purified and re-injected into another area that requires volume, such as the face, hands, or breasts.
This safe and effective treatment uses natural materials, resulting in a more subtle and natural-looking improvement than synthetic fillers. At our clinic, our skilled and experienced providers use advanced techniques to ensure that your fat grafting treatment is customized to your unique needs and goals.
