Natural Fat Grafting for Different Areas of the Body
A: Fat grafting is recommended for people with a sunken or uneven forehead and for those who wish to have volume and also look younger. The fat is usually extracted from the thighs or abdomen because those areas have the most fat, and it is placed on the desired area of the face.
Fat grafting is non-invasive, which means that there will be no scarring, except for needle marks which will disappear in a couple days. You have to come in for a check up 1-2 times and you can return to your daily activities after 1-2 weeks. The fat grafted area will last 3-5 years depending on the person, and you must be careful not to stimulate or rub the area.
