Fat transfer is a technique in which fat cells are used to fill in facial wrinkles. Because these fat cells are first harvested from the patient’s body, this is called an autologous procedure. Autologous procedures offer fewer potential complications than procedures that involve foreign substances. The body knows the materials involved, so both rejection and allergic reactions are highly unlikely.
To harvest these fat cells, liposuction is used on flabby areas of the patient’s body. These can include the buttocks, the abdomen, and the thighs. So when your fat transfer procedure is complete, you’ll not only look younger, you’ll also look more fit!
