Why go for fat grafting?
Fat grafting gives the added benefit of enhancing one area and slimming down the other. It uses your own body’s fat to enhance the areas that lack the volume to improve your contours for a more natural appearance.

How is the fat taken from the body?
Fat tissue is removed from other parts of your body such as thighs, abdomen, and buttocks through liposuction.
How many fat grafting sessions needed to achieve the desired results?
It depends on the procedure; for instance, one session is usually enough in facial procedures, although a second session can also prove beneficial. But to fill in scars, or in case of breast reconstruction or augmentation, 2-4 sessions may be required, depending upon the need for additional volume.
What type of anesthesia is used during the fat grafting procedure?
For a minor procedure like facial fat grafting, local anesthesia can be used. But in the case of extensive procedures such as breast augmentation, general anesthesia is used.
