Types of Fat Grafting Procedures

Are you looking to update your appearance for 2022? Winter is one of the best times for plastic surgery, especially because it means you’ll be ready to go for the summer. At Cincinnati Plastic Surgery, we have a variety of different surgical and non-surgical procedures and dermal fillers for you to choose from. We also offer a number of fat grafting procedures. Wondering about the different types of fat grafting procedures and which one is right for you? Dr. Martin at Cincinnati Plastic Surgery has you covered.

Fat Grafting Process

Unlike implants, fat grafting procedures use the fat from your own body. This helps to reduce the chance of rejection since the fat comes from your body. Sometimes, in order to see the desired results, we may perform the procedures multiple times. This is completely normal and shouldn’t cause you any concern.

To perform a fat grafting augmentation, we use three steps. First, we use a modified liposuction method to remove the fat from your body. We’ll take the fat from areas where you have excess fat, like the stomach, thighs, and arms. Next, once we have the fat, we purify it. Finally, once the fat is ready, we inject it back into the desired area on your body.

Brazilian Butt Lift

A Brazilian Butt Lift uses your own fat to enhance the appearance of your buttocks. This procedure helps them appear perkier. With a BBL, you’ll want to avoid direct pressure on your buttocks following surgery to maintain your results. We’ll give you a special pillow that you must use for a few weeks after your surgery.

Breast Fat Grafting

For some people, they may opt for a fat grafting procedure on their breasts instead of using implants to correct asymmetry. If that’s the case, we can help improve the asymmetry by injecting fat. This also helps increase your breast size by one to two cups. But breast fat grafting can also help people who had a lumpectomy or radiation from breast cancer.

Facial Fat Grafting Procedures

Did you know fat grafting can improve the appearance of your face? We can inject some of your body’s own fat into areas prone to wrinkles, including the nasolabial folds and below the eyes. Additionally, it can also add volume to your face, giving the appearance of higher cheekbones.

Skin Rejuvenation Through Fat Grafting

Finally, fat grafting procedures can help with skin rejuvenation. One of the ways it can rejuvenate your skin is through reducing the appearance of scars. Also, fat grafting for skin rejuvenation improves the volume and texture of your skin, ensuring that you can look younger for longer.

Considering a fat grafting procedure? The different types of fat grafting procedures serve different purposes. But, all in all, they’re designed to enhance your appearance. Whether you’re interested in a Brazilian Butt Lift or a breast augmentation using your own fat, we have the right procedure for you. Interested in meeting with Dr. Martin to go over your options?
