Fat Graft Q & A

A fat graft procedure involves using cells or tissues harvested from your own body to augment areas where your skin has lost volume. Tissue is taken from areas where fat is more readily available, such as the abdomen, buttocks, or thighs. It’s then liquefied and injected into areas that need it.

Since fat grafting involves using your own tissue to augment your body―as opposed to a foreign filler or implant―there’s a relatively low risk of infection or allergic reaction. Other benefits of fat grafting include:

  • Results that look soft and natural
  • Enhancements last a long time
  • The technique is minimally invasive
  • Recovery time is typically three weeks or less

Dr. Obasi ensures your comfort while giving you an anesthetic. He makes tiny incisions in the area of the body where fat is being removed. Using a thin tube called a cannula, he removes fat through suction.

While you rest, Dr. Obasi uses a filtration method or centrifuge to remove impurities and thin the fat so it can pass through a fine needle.

He then transfers this fat to the face, inserting a needle into the treatment area and passing it in and out multiple times. This technique deposits the fat evenly. Sometimes, the doctor may intentionally overfill just a bit because not all grafted cells will survive.

Dr. Obasi ensures you understand how to care for your skin after the procedure properly. It’s possible you’ll experience tenderness and swelling around the treated areas, but this should subside within a few weeks. You may need multiple fat grafts to achieve your desired results.

Patients experience smoothed creases, improved appearance of depressed acne scars, more plump lips and cheeks, and more volume in areas that tend to sag, like under the eyes.

As an experienced surgeon in the fat graft procedure, Dr. Obasi works with you to ensure you achieve your desired results.
