What Is Fat Injection
Fat injection is an increasingly popular procedure and involves fat being withdrawn from one area of your body and injected into another — for example, to smooth lines in your face or build up other features, such as your lips. In a sense, it is “recycling” your own fat, which is highly desirable for many patients because the fat is your own tissue and therefore there is no chance of allergy or rejection.
Although patients achieve long-lasting results, a certain percentage of injected fat is reabsorbed by the body. Therefore, the procedure may need to be repeated to achieve and maintain the results you desire.
Fat Injection In The Face And Breasts
Fat injection that is properly performed in areas of the face, or used to “fill in” contour irregularities in other parts of the body, such as the hips or buttocks, is a safe and effective procedure.
Please note that injection of fat to enlarge the breasts is a controversial procedure because of the possibility of dense scarring that may seriously hinder accurate interpretation of both breast self-exams and mammograms. (See Breast Augmentation).

How Much Do Fat Injections Cost?
