Autologus Fat Grafting

Autologus fat grafting is a procedure in which excess fat from a part of body is taken and transferred to another area where fat is deficient.

What is Autologous Fat Transfer?

Autologous fat transfer is a procedure where fat is removed from one spot in the body and then re-injected to replace lost volume, rejuvenate, or correct another body area. Areas normally treated with fat transfer include facial, hand and gluteal areas. The result is a long-lasting, more youthful appearance.
