What is Fat Grafting?
You may not need facial surgery or dermal fillers and injectables to enhance your facial features or reduce wrinkles. Fat Grafting is a treatment that uses a fat grafting technique to address these problems naturally. Dr. Park harvests small amounts of fat using liposuction that is then transferred to the treatment area. This approach is preferred amongst patients who:
- Are not good candidates for dermal fillers and injectables due to allergies and other issues
- May not need or benefit from facial surgery
- Prefer to use their natural fat rather than dermal fillers
Benefits of Fat Grafting
Fat grafting uses your own fat to help reduce signs of aging and improve your facial contours, such as the lips, chin, and cheeks. The procedure takes very little time and requires little to no recovery. The fat harvesting can be performed as a standalone procedure, or Dr. Park can use the fat that is removed during your facial liposuction.
Am I a Candidate for Fat Grafting?
While Fat Grafting is considered safe and effective for most patients, some aspects of the procedure must be considered. You need to have adequate donor fat on your face or body. Anatomy, skin quality and age also play a role.
What to Expect from Fat Grafting
Fat grafting is a three-step process. First, Dr. Park uses liposuction to harvest the fat. This step does require a small incision to access the fat layer of your skin. In most cases, the incision does not require sutures. Second, the fat is purified. Third, the fat is injected into the treatment area. You may need multiple injections to achieve the desired result.
