Fat Grafting

Recently, fat grafting has become a popular addition to almost any procedure. Fat adds volume to areas that lose youthful-looking fat due to factors such as age, weight loss, and pregnancy. Unlike injectable dermal fillers, fat grafting uses your own excess fat from areas of the body including the abdomen, knees, and thighs. Dermal fillers typically last 6–12 months, while fat grafting can be a permanent fix for volume loss.

We can perform fat grafting to enhance the volume of certain facial features. Patients often discover that a fuller face can add a youthful glow to their appearance. Fat grafting is a common addition to many facial procedures like facelift and neck lift, brow lift, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), and rhinoplasty (nose surgery).

Many patients express interest in enhancing the shape, contour, or volume of their buttocks through a Brazilian Butt Lift. Surgeons can add fat to the buttocks either independently or with liposuction, abdominoplasty, or lower body lift procedures.

Candidates for Fat Grafting

The Fat Grafting Procedure

Dr. Behmand will use specialized low-pressure liposuction to harvest your fat for grafting. After removing impurities, and isolating the best fat cells, he will carefully inject small droplets into the desired areas. The total fat volume injected depends on several factors. These include the body areas being treated, the desired amount of change, and the availability of fat from the donor site.

Recovery From Fat Grafting

After your fat grafting procedure, follow all instructions provided during your pre-operative appointment once you return home. Allocate one to two weeks for recovery before resuming work and normal routines. Avoid physical exertion during this crucial time to prevent excess swelling. Prioritize rest, relaxation, and hydration for optimal recovery. Additionally, abstain from all physical activity for at least 4 weeks after surgery, including workouts and strenuous activities that may elevate your heart rate and lead to excess swelling in the fat-grafted areas.

“I can’t fully express how grateful I am to have found you! You are AMAZING! Even though it is early in my recovery I already see the difference and know it will only improve. Thank you for peeling away the layers to reveal the extreme hotness that was hiding underneath it all!”
