Whether you are facing the aging process, or simply lack volume in some parts of your body, you are likely to see some drooping and sagging that can really bring you down. Fortunately, you have a relatively simple alternative that will not force you to undergo invasive surgery.
Fat grafting is a cosmetic procedure that could give you the results you want and it will use fat from your own body to enhance areas where you see a need.
What is Fat Grafting?
Fat grafting, also known as fat transfer, is a cosmetic procedure that involves the use of your own body fat to supplement other areas where you are lacking fullness or volume.
Excess fat is harvested, goes through a purification process, and is injected into the area of concern. You reduce risks associated with allergic reactions to dermal fillers and involved surgical procedures when you choose this option. At the same time, you can feel like you are getting a transformation that will use a natural substance for a positive outcome.
What are the Benefits of Fat Grafting?
Fat grafting will give you lasting results and uses a natural substance from your own body to improve your appearance. The best part is you can shed excess fat that you don’t want and put it to good use somewhere else in your body.
The procedure is less involved than surgical options and you won’t use artificial substances that could endanger your health.
What is Involved in Fat Grafting?
The first step is to receive anesthesia or an intravenous sedative as your surgeon ensures that you will not endure any discomfort during the procedure. Small incisions will be made so that the cannula, a long, hollow tube, can be inserted into areas where you have excess fat.
The abdomen, thighs, or buttocks are the most common sources for fat. Once the fat has been harvested, your incisions will be closed and the fat will be purified.
The final step is injection of fat into areas that need more volume in your body. You will have a relatively short recovery time and be able to enjoy results that look natural.
