Fat Transfers and Grafting
Since the early nineties, cosmetic surgeons have perfected the process of harvesting fat from one location in the body and transferring it to another for aesthetic or repair purposes. Fat transfer, or fat injections, are also called autologous fat transfer. It uses a patient’s own body fat from well-populated areas (thighs or buttocks) to plump or enhance areas where more volume or contour is needed.
In the fat transfer process, fatty tissue is harvested then liquified. The liquid fat is then injected in targeted areas to fill lines and grooves, or to fill low areas. Eyelids, cheeks and lips are popular areas for fat transfers although it can be used to cosmetically enhance many other parts of the body, such as the hands and breasts.
Dr. Eric Cerrati is a skilled and experienced facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who can use fat transfers and grafting to enhance or repair a variety of areas. Choosing a fellowship trained, double board certified surgeon to perform your cosmetic procedures is a wise decision. You should trust your health and appearance to no one else with lesser skills and experience.
