Fat grafting involves identifying a source of fat on the body and then transferring it to somewhere else needed. Surgeons often remove from the abdomen, or buttocks, and use it as a plumping agent when performing plastic surgery. In the video below, you will see Dr. Jhonny Salomon of Miami Plastic Surgery perform Fat Grafting to the breast area under local anesthesia.
Fat grafting is done in combination with other procedures like facelifts for a more complete improvement. It provides benefits such as permanency as a filler and it also helps in improving the skin. Stem cells found in our adipocytes (fat cells) have a rejuvenating effect on the skin improving wrinkles, pores, and sun damage leaving your face fuller and skin rejuvenated.
