Fat Grafting, Long Island NY

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, before it’s refined, purified, and then re-injected into another area of the body as a filler. The most common areas where fat grafting is used to naturally enhance the face and body include the upper/lower eyelids, breasts, buttocks, cheeks, and nasolabial folds (sometimes called the parenthesis lines which form on the corners of the mouth as we age).

The face, in particular, contains many natural pads of fat that give our face contour and a youthful appearance. As we age, gravity, pollution, & stress cause these natural fat layers to disappear, resulting in wrinkles and sagging skin. In the face, fat grafting can help improve drooping skin on the chin and jawline and loose skin around the lower eyelids, cheeks, neck, and eyebrows.

Who is an ideal candidate for Fat Grafting?

  • Men or women looking to add volume in areas of the face, breasts, or buttocks
  • Non-Smokers
  • People in reasonably good health who have realistic expectations

What can I expect during my Fat Grafting procedure?

Dr. Lin and Dr. Cohen-Kashi perform fat transfer in Long Island, NY. During the procedure, local or general anesthesia is used, and fat is carefully removed through liposuction. It is then refined, purified, and re-injected as a filler into the region or regions you’re looking to correct. Dr. Lin and Cohen-Kashi inject an abundance of purified fat cells, because about half of the cells are naturally reabsorbed into the body.

What can I expect during my Fat Grafting recovery?

The most common side effects after the procedure are temporary redness and swelling at the injection site. This usually subsides within two days. Cold compresses can also be used to help reduce any swelling. Patients should avoid any rigorous activity, such as exercise, and activities such as sunbathing or tanning until any redness or swelling has subsided.
