While the name may sound like something out of a science fiction horror film, fat grafting also known as a fat transfer is a trending cosmetic procedure that has various benefits. The technique is one that has emerged within the last ten years or so and has proven to be an excellent way to get the look you want by utilizing cells and tissue already found in your body.
As the name implies, the technique involves the removal of fat from one part of the body and the implantation of these cells to other parts of the body. For example, let’s say you dislike the size of your thighs and that you have been considering a facelift for some time. Fat grafting allows your surgeon to utilize fat from the thighs to be used as a plumping agent for your face in order to provide a more natural outcome.
The technique has also proven very useful when it comes to smoothing out other areas of the body, and it has also shown effective permanency as a filler. Fat grafting is an excellent accompaniment to facelifts and other cosmetic surgeries.
The benefits of fat grafting are endless. The technique also helps improve skin quality. This is due primarily to the fact that stem cells found in fat have a rejuvenating effect. Because of this, a fat transfer can actually help improve wrinkles, pores, sun damage, and other skin problems.
