Fat Grafting: What to Expect
You will first meet with Dr. Smart to review your goals to ensure that fat grafting is the right solution. When a patient undergoes fat grafting, liposuction will be done on another area of your body. You will choose an area that you want to enhance, such as your abdomen, buttocks, thighs, or arms. In many cases, Dr. Smart can perform VASER® Lipo.
Once Dr. Smart has removed the unwanted fat cells, he will place them in a high-power centrifuge. The force will result in pure fat cells, which he will safely inject under your skin. For this part of the procedure, he will numb the treatment area and inject the cells at varying depths. This method provides subtle, lifelike results. You may require several treatment regimens for optimal effects.

Is Fat Grafting for You?
Fat grafting may be a good solution for any of the following issues:
- Lost volume in your cheeks
- A weak or receding chin
- Deep creases around your mouth and nose
- Noticeable horizontal wrinkles on your forehead
- Bags under your eyes
Before it is determined that fat grafting is for you, Dr. Smart will evaluate your overall health. Though the treatment involves very few risks, cosmetic surgery is not recommended if you have a compromised immune system or blood disorder. Additionally, because fat grafting involves liposuction, you should be at or near your ideal weight, as weight loss can significantly impact the final results.
Benefits of Fat Grafting
Fat grafting can help make your face appear younger, and more invigorated. It can significantly enhance your cheeks, chin, and lips. Since fat grafting involves a liposuction procedure, you will be able to enhance other areas of your body, for a more toned appearance.
Fat grafting involves minimal discomfort, and offers a quick recovery time. It also poses very few risks, since the procedure uses your own tissues, leaving less chance of allergic reaction, or your body rejecting a synthetic material. Finally, your rejuvenated appearance can boost your self-confidence, positively impacting your professional and social life.
