Fat Grafting FAQs
What is fat grafting?
Dr. Sreekar Harinatha performs fat grafting by removing fat from one area of your body and transferring it to another area. He removes fat via liposuction from areas you’d like to slim and then implants it into areas that have lost volume, such as cheeks, breasts, buttocks, etc.
Double Board-certified in plastic surgery, Dr. Sreekar recommends fat grafting for various reasons:
- fat is readily available,
- feels natural after grafting, and
- because it comes from your own body, the fat implant doesn’t cause complicated reactions.
What issues can you address with fat grafting?
Dr. Sreekar recommends fat grafting for various enhancements, such as:
- Correcting scars, including acne scars
- Volumizing sunken cheeks
- Plumping lips
- Reducing lines and deep wrinkles
- Augmentation of Breast and Buttocks
In addition to facial procedures, Dr. Sreekar commonly uses fat grafting during a breast or buttocks augmentation procedure instead of traditional implants.
He may also suggest a fat transfer during a breast augmentation. We use fat grafting to improve breast symmetry and cleavage for full breast augmentation.
What happens during a fat grafting procedure?
During the 1-2 hour procedure, Dr. Sreekar starts by marking your body, indicating exactly where he plans on removing fat and where he plans on reinjecting it.
Procedures are done under local anesthesia or sometimes under general anesthesia and makes a small incision where the fat removal occurs. Using a thin tube called a cannula, he uses liposuction to harvest your fat. Dr. Sreekar takes special precaution not to injure your fat during the removal process, as damaged fat may not graft as well and be reabsorbed by the body.
Once he collects enough fat, he closes the incision and purifies the fat. He may use a centrifuge or a series of syringes to wash the fat tissue.
When the fat is ready, Dr. Sreekar injects the fat into the treatment area through very small injections. Since fat grafting is more successful when it’s performed close to blood vessels, he may make numerous small implants instead of one large implant.
After the transplant, Dr. Sreekar advises you to avoid massaging the area and, if you had a facial graft, limit excessive facial expressions and animations to discourage fat migration.
