Fat injection, or grafting, permanently adds volume, and is useful in many aspects of cosmetic surgery. It can be placed in many areas, commonly the face or the buttocks.
Fat grafting is a highly beneficial way of restoring volume that is lost through weight loss or aging. Perhaps you want to restore your face to its natural youthful beauty with full cheeks, or perhaps you wish to smooth out hollowed temple areas. Fat grafting can be used alone or in conjunction with other procedures to correct more diverse aspects of aging, such sagging and deflation. Our facelift procedure corrects the sagging, and our fat injection procedure replaces the fat you lost with age. Or you may want a facial enhancement such as having your cheekbones accentuated, or your lips created fuller and plumper and the fine wrinkles around your mouth reduced. Also, our fat injection techniques are effective for correcting many hereditary features including a thin or gaunt face, mid-face flatness, or asymmetrical face. Read More
Another area that may benefit from fat grafting is the buttocks. If you desire enhanced curves, fat may be removed from areas such as your waist, abdomen, or thighs and added to the buttocks to augment your contour.
After you have healed, in approximately two weeks, the results of your fat grafting procedure at Plastic Surgery Northwest in Spokane are permanent. You should see your new “look” emerge with a natural and realistically youthful appearance or with the curves that genetics couldn’t provide. Because your fat cells are alive, they are dynamic and will continue to change with you as you gain or lose weight throughout your life. This may result in changes in appearance of the grafted areas if your weight change is substantial.
