Fat transfer, also known as fat grafting or fat injection, is an advanced cosmetic surgery technique. It involves harvesting and transplanting a patient’s own fat to another area of the body. Typically, fat cells are harvested from an area with an excess of fat, such as the inner/outer thighs, flanks, abdomen, or buttocks.

Common areas that undergo fat transfer surgery include the hands, face (including the lips), buttocks (as part of a Brazilian Butt Lift), and breasts. As an added bonus, the unwanted fat is not missed in the areas from which it is harvested, as these are usually “problem areas” resistant to diet and exercise. Both areas (harvested and injected) end up with more contoured, natural appearances that are long lasting. […]
