Project Description

Fat injections or autologous fat transplantation is an excellent technique for facial and body contouring. The fat is usually aspirated from the patient’s abdominal wall or around their knees. The aspirated fat is centrifuged, condensed, and re-introduced at different sites to even out skin depressions, fill unwanted creases and smooth irregularities of soft tissues. Fat injections have been used in face lifts to plump out the nasolabial folds. Fat injections have been used to fill the upper lips to give a ‘Paris look’. Fat injections can be used for the correction of depressed scars and to revise contour irregularities secondary to liposuction.
