What Are Fat Transfers and Injections?
The basic premise of a fat transfer is to take fat from one area of your body where there is typically excess, such as your outer thigh or your stomach, and transfer it to a different area of your body that needs plumping up or lost volume restored, such as the face or the buttocks.
The procedure is sometimes called fat grafting. It’s also known as microlipoinjection and autologous (coming from the same organism) fat injections. It’s a safe, well-tolerated procedure with proven long-lasting, natural-looking results.
