You will be surprised about what it can do.
Fat grafting has been around for quite a while. Advances in the understanding of its physiology has led to better survival of the fat transferred, which leads to more consistent results. Its main use is to fill in soft tissue defects. Fat grafting does this by adding volume to targeted safe areas.
Fat grafting requires a small liposuction which can be done under local anesthesia. This fat is then processed for about 10-20 mins. This processing technique can yield different kinds of "fat" particularly micro-fat and nano-fat. They have different uses such as volume restoration, improvement of scars, improvement of dark under-eye circles, deformity reconstruction, breast and gluteal enlargement, and treatment of chronic wounds.
The first step is always to see your Doctor.
Small-volume liposuction is part of the procedure
Patients may be back to work in 1 to 2 weeks, and can resume more strenuous activities in 2 to 4 weeks.
Full recovery from swelling and bruising may be achieved after 2 weeks, or longer in some cases
Resorption or loss of volume can be expected to some degree, usually around 30-40% but can also be as low as 5%
