Fat injection or grafting is a technique that is growing in popularity. It is one of the best available well-tolerated fillers and thus has broad applications.
- It is natural-appearing, lasts a long time, and is safe.
- It is effective filler used for changing body contour, revising scars, filling depressions and rejuvenating the hands and face.
- Very commonly used for breast augmentation, penile augmentation & vaginal rejuvenation.
Perhaps most importantly, it spares the patient the inherent risks associated with fillers derived from animals or cadavers.
Dressings may be placed on the injected areas. These dressings may include the use of tapes or compressive-type dressings. Your surgeon may request that you don’t sit or lie on injected areas for a prescribed period. Your surgeon may also instruct you regarding a massage program after the procedure. Swelling and bruising usually resolve within 2 to 3 weeks.
