This refers to the transfer of fat from areas in which you have excess fat — such as the buttocks or outer thighs — and injecting it into areas that may be lacking in volume, such as your face, hands, breasts or buttocks.
Fat is harvested from one part of your body, washed and purified, and then carefully reinjected with specially designed needles into the areas that need augmentation. It may be necessary to repeat the fat grafting procedure several times to achieve the desired result.
Is this for me?

- For use in breast reconstruction, to fill in contour irregularities or hide obvious signs of breast implants
