Fat grafting is a type of filler. Instead of an expensive commercial product, your own fat is harvested, processed, and injected as the filler. The advantage of fat grafting is its natural consistency and its longevity. Modern techniques of processing fat for grafting have maximized the retention of stem cells in the grafted material which has increased “take”, or percentage of material being retained permanently by the body.
Common areas treated with fat grafting are the face, including the lips, the buttocks, the breasts, and the hands.
