Fat Grafting Slims One Area and Enhances Another

Have you ever wished you could take fat from one area of your body, and move it to another area? While that may sound like a fantasy, new surgical techniques have made it a reality. Microfat Grafting is an innovative surgical technique that takes excess fat from the patient's own body and uses it as a natural, living filler for areas like the face.

Why would you want to add fat to your face? As we age, we lose fat from our face, and that causes some of the most common signs of aging. Fat in areas of the face is good because fat reduces the look of wrinkles and fine lines, adds contour, and eliminates dark circles under the eyes. Microfat Grafting is an exciting treatment option because it allows Dr. Golshani to create precise structural changes to the specific areas of the face in which it is placed.

Also known as Liposculpture, this procedure gently removes excess fat from areas such as the abdomen, buttocks, hips or thighs. Then the fat is processed and cleaned so it can be injected into areas of the body that need filling. Microfat Grafting can help to soften wrinkles on the face, smooth out fine lines around the lips, define your jawline, and make the lips and cheeks fuller. This type of treatment can also be used on areas other than the face. For example, Dr. Golshani can use your own fat to enhance flat buttocks and improve the appearance of scars.

Patients love natural fat grafting because it’s a “2 in 1” procedure: they lose fat from one area, while getting a more youthful look to the face. Another benefit of using your own fat as filler is that there is no chance of your body rejecting the fat or having an allergic reaction. While this natural fat transfer procedure is not the right choice in all cases, it can result in natural and permanent augmentation in 50-75% of cases. The best way to find out if microfat grafting is a good option for you, is to set up a consultation with Dr. Golshani.
