Orange county plastic surgeon Dr. Farbod Esmailian provides fat injections with fantastic results which generally last longer than many other fillers. Fat grafting as the procedure is called involves removing fat cells from other parts of your body and injecting it into the desired area. The fat is removed during liposuction procedure, treated and then injected in small droplets into the areas of wrinkles or areas where augmentation is wanted.
Fat grafting is a procedure that is commonly done in conjuction with other procedures such as liposuction, abdominoplasty, facelift procedure and many others. Fat injections can be performed to enhance and replenish volume in and around the cheekbones, midface, lips as well as into the hands and buttocks(gluteal augmentation). Virtually any area that has lost fat, or has fat descent or where fat has shifted is amenable to fat injection and fat grafting.
Fat grafting may be permanent in certain instances and in others there may be a need for additional injections. Is fat injection the procedure for you?
