What is fat transfer?
A fat transfer, also known as fat grafting or fat injection, is transferring excess fat from problem areas and injecting it into bodily parts lacking in volume such as breasts, the face, hands or buttocks. The procedure is safe, long-lasting, and well-tolerated by many.
Who is a good candidate for the procedure?
Patients with generally good health, strong circulatory systems, optimistic attitudes and realistic expectations are candidates for fat transfers.
What is an Autologous Fat Transfer (AFT)?
An Autologous fat transfer is a facial fat transfer procedure where fat injections are re-injected to the face to improve facial fullness, fill creases or build up shallow contours of the cheeks and temple area. Additionally, the treatment smoothes thinning lips and erases under-eye bags and dark circles.
