Fat injections are an excellent option for those who are looking for additional volume with the added benefit of fat removal. In the face, for example, adding volume can give you a fuller, rejuvenated and youthful appearance. There are many dermal injections available, such as the commonly known BOTOX, but fat transfer is long-lasting and well tolerated by the body because it is your own fat.
Fat injections are useful for creating volume in areas that seem sunken or areas that have depressions. Generally, the fat is taken from areas like the thighs or abdomen. The procedure can be done at the same time as liposuction and may also be combined with dermal injections like BOTOX. Consult with an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Andrew Lyos to determine what options are best suited to your goals. Fat grafting is also used for other procedures like breast augmentation and reconstruction.
