Fat grafting, also known as a fat transfer, is a surgical procedure where fat is removed through liposuction in one or multiple areas of the body, refined, purified, and then re-injected into another area of the body as a filler. With regards to the face, after fat has been removed and purified, it can be re-injected into the face and can fill in lines, wrinkles, and facial depressions.
The downside to a fat transfer is that you may require multiple treatments, because when fat is injected, some of it gets reabsorbed back into the body. Therefore, to avoid placing too much filler in at once, Dr. Lin and Dr. Cohen-Kashi may suggest multiple treatments with a more conservative amount of fat injected, so you’ll achieve the most natural result in the end.
