Have you heard of fat grafting, the popular new treatment that’s taking the cosmetic world by storm?
Fat grafting – also commonly referred to as a fat transfer – is a procedure that uses your body’s own fat to add volume in areas where aging and volume loss are most obvious. From your face to your buttocks, fat grafting can plump, smooth, and even peel back the years from your appearance.
But how does fat grafting even work?
Everything You’ve Wanted to Know About Fat Grafting
1. It provides minor body contouring benefits.
Fat grafting utilizes minor liposuction surgery in order to harvest enough fat for the injection process. The most common grafting sites include the stomach, thighs, and/or the buttocks (if the procedure isn’t a Brazilian butt lift).
Patients often remark that they see some inch loss as a result of the fat-harvesting process, which is always a nice bonus!
2. It can be used in common aging areas.
Fat grafting is a surprisingly flexible procedure that can be used in a number of body areas. Most patients tend to have their fat placed in areas where aging is most obvious, like the face and hands.

3. There’s no risk for allergic reactions.
As you’re using your body’s natural fat tissue to address aging issues, there’s no risk for rejection or allergic reactions. Fat grafting is a great option for patients who may be allergic to ingredients contained in dermal fillers or other anti-aging injectables.
4. Results are much more natural.
One of the biggest benefits of fat grafting is that the results can be much more natural than those achieved with dermal fillers or silicone implants. For example, if you’re interested in lip augmentation, using your body’s own fat can add crucial volume without interfering with your mouth’s natural movements.
