Fat grafting offers natural-looking, long-lasting benefits for patients seeking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or enhance volume, contour, and definition on areas of the face and body. During the fat grafting process, our Newport Beach plastic surgeon, Dr. Semira Bayati, removes excess fat cells from the abdomen, hips, thighs, or other parts of the body; the fat is harvested by liposuction. Then, this fat is filtered and concentrated before it can be transferred to the desired treatment areas. Minimally-invasive injections are used to transfer the fat to other areas of the body. Ultimately, Dr. Bayati’s patients can enjoy beautiful, long-lasting results with this advanced procedure. This process maximizes the stem cells and the longevity of the transferred fat grafts.
Fat injections can provide many benefits, including:
Minimal bruising and swelling may occur after treatment. However, any discomfort following treatment generally subsides quickly and can be alleviated with medication. Results from fat grafting are known to last very long periods of time – in many cases, the effects can last for years.
