Fat grafting procedures are becoming increasingly popular as a minimally invasive, permanent way to enhance and refine body contours. During fat grafting in Houston, a patient’s own body fat is taken from one area of the body via liposuction and transferred to another part of the body to add fullness or curves.

Enhancing Results

Often used as a facial filler, fat grafting can improve the creased and sunken areas of the face (facial rejuvenation) and add fullness to the lips (lip enhancement) and cheeks. Fat grafting is also commonly used in buttock augmentation, usually in place of traditional buttock implants.

Fat grafting can also be used to fill areas of the skin that have become asymmetric or depressed on any part of the body, and may be combined with other surgical procedures for enhanced results.

Fat grafting is an excellent way to decrease unwanted fat in one area of the body and enhance volume and shape in another during the same operation.

What Happens During Fat Grafting?

The fat grafting procedure involves harvesting fat from another body area, such as the hips, flanks, thighs, or abdomen, via liposuction. The fat is then purified and injected into areas of the face or body that you would like to enhance, such as the buttocks, hips, labia, hands, cheeks, or lips. The fat will then develop its own blood supply to survive in this new location.

What Can I Expect While Recovering from Fat Grafting?

Fat grafting in Houston is a highly individualized procedure, and recovery will vary depending on the amount of fat taken, the number of areas liposuctioned, and the volume and location of fat injections. Dr. Sato will provide detailed instructions about recovery at your personal consultation, and it will be best to follow these directions as closely as possible.
