If you are disappointed in an excess of fatty deposits in one part of the body and a lack in another, you may want to consider the fat grafting cosmetic procedure.
About Fat Grafting
When fat is removed in liposuction or other procedures, it can be re-purposed to beautify the appearance of other features. With fat grafting, this excess is injected (without any major incisions) to the desired area. Very often, people ask how it differs from the liposuction procedure. While liposuction removes significant amounts of fat from an unwanted area, fat grafting typically uses much smaller amounts of fat to enhance or fill out a particular area. However, in the Advanced Technique Breast Augmentation or Brazilian Butt Lift with Fat Grafting, typical areas for liposuction are contoured down sufficiently to afford a wonderful result alone, then the fat is re-injected into the breast or the buttocks.
Why Should I Consider Fat Grafting?
In this procedure, fat is removed through careful, gentle liposuction and is re-purposed to enhance the appearance of another area – such as the lips, cheeks, or breasts. As board certified plastic surgeons, Drs Bruno and Brown are expertly qualified to determine what the best methods to achieve your desired appearance. At your consultation, your doctor will help you determine how to achieve your desired look and whether you might benefit from compatible procedures such as a facelift, cheek or breast implants.
