Fat grafting is the removal of fat where it will not be missed, like the lower abdomen or the buttocks, and moving to a new area under the skin. When the fat is removed, it is transferred to the desired location, where it takes hold and grows. Fat is often grafted into the face, breasts, or buttocks.
Fat Grafting for Breast Reconstruction
If a patient has had breast surgery and has lost breast structure as a result, our plastic surgeon can provide breast reconstruction. The fat used to reconstruct or reshape the breast can be taken from areas like the abdomen or thighs.
Fat Grafting for Butt Augmentation
Fat grafting procedures are becoming more common with butt augmentation. In some cases, Dr. Hogan can reduce unwanted fat in one area and use that fat to enhance the size, shape, and fullness of the buttocks.
Fat Grafting with Breast Lifts
A breast lift may not fully restore the upper pole of breasts. Fat grafting allows for increasing upper pole of the breasts, giving the breasts a more youthful look.
Fat Grafting with Facelifts
Part of the facial aging process includes losing facial volume, giving you an aged appearance. Fat grafting can be used to fill those areas of the face that are showing signs of aging, like grooves and lost volume. Fat grafting to the face can be used alone or in conjunction with a face lift to give a more youthful look.
