How many times have you thought, 'why can't I just move the fat from my [fill in the blank] to my [breasts/butt]?' Well the answer is yes, we can move that fat! Fat grafting is when fat is removed from one part of the body with liposuction, and then reinjected using blunt-tip cannulas into another part of the body where more volume is desired, such as the breasts or buttocks.
Unlike other fillers, like silicone implants, grafted fat is biocompatible. It is your own tissue! No worries about reaction or foreign bodies. It is an extremely versatile procedure, as it can be combined with many other cosmetic and reconstructive procedures with minimal additional risk!
Fat grafting is particularly helpful with breast surgery. Fat can be used in normal breasts to add just that little bit more volume, and perhaps, forego the need for a permanent implant! It is commonly used in breast lift surgery to improve overall contour and give a touch more volume. Fat grafting is also an excellent choice in revision breast implant surgery as the fat can be injected over an existing breast implant to improve shape, feel and limit implant rippling.
