Fat grafting, also know as liposculpture, is a surgical procedure to remove unwanted fat from one part of the body and then to inject the fat back into another area that has lost volume. Liposuction is used to suck out fat, usually from the belly or buttocks, process it and then inject it back into the area needing plumping.
This loss of volume could be because of:
- Wounds & scarring;
- Weight loss;
- Ageing; or
- Tissue damage.
This procedure is becoming a popular alternative to breast augmentation resulting in a more natural feel. But this option is only used for relatively small breast enhancements.
The purpose of this procedure is to augment or plump up any area that has lost volume and to restore a natural shape. This procedure can also even skin texture and improve the appearance in areas of the face, buttock, hip, breast, etc.
