Fat injections are designed to replace volume that has been lost with ageing and to create a more balanced and youthful look to the face.
Also known as “autologous fat transplantation”, fat injections is a procedure by which fat is harvested from one part of a patient’s body and injected back into other areas. This helps:
- Restore lost volume
- Reshape areas of the face or body
- Add definition and contour
- Fill our lines and wrinkles
Fat Injections in the Face
Fat may be taken from the thighs or buttocks and used to fill in deep wrinkles and creases or to plump thin lips and cheeks.
Fat injections can also enhance a particular feature, such as an underdeveloped jawline. Fat injection can be performed as part of a facelift, and the results can be seen immediately.
Breast Fat Injection
Fat injections can be used in breast surgery to replace volume and achieve better balanced breasts.
Fat injections are also used in breast reconstruction following breast cancer treatment or prevention, and congenital breast deformity.
