Fat grafting is a procedure that uses your body’s own excess fatty deposits to fill depressions in the skin that make you look older or make your skin appear unhealthy.
Patients often turn to fat grafting as a more natural alternative to popular injectable fillers. While these injectable fillers work wonders, the idea of using excess material (fat) from your own body is appealing to some patients. Those who desire fat grafting often do so to correct lines and wrinkles, deep groves, hollowing of the cheek or temples, or alongside blepharoplasty surgery.
In order to undergo fat grafting, you must have an adequate surplus of fatty tissue at the donor site—often the hips, thighs, midsection. You should also have realistic expectations for the result of the procedure. Though the correction does not always last a lifetime, it can have long-term benefits for the appearance of your skin.
