Reasons for Considering Fat Grafting
- Desire to plump up an area

The surgery is an example of liposculpture, where the techniques of suctioning fat and re-injecting fat are applied to the desired region with the goals of enhancing the area by suctioning out fat from another area of the body and transferring to the area to be enhanced. This procedure can be performed in our office OR under local anesthesia. Fat grafting can be performed instead of fillers.
The length of the recovery will depend on how extensive of an operation the patient undergoes. A support garment may need to be worn for several weeks after the surgery, depending upon which area(s) are selected to utilize the liposuction procedure. Patients sometimes report minor pain associated with surgery which can be treated effectively with oral medication.
