Fat grafting, also known as fat transfer and fat injection, is utilized in areas needing volume-enhancement, most commonly the face, breasts, buttocks, and hands. This procedure gives a person a more youthful appearance in their face by harvesting unwanted excess fat from other parts of their body and placing it under the skin in the face. It helps to smooth out lines and wrinkles that have appeared over time due to the gradual wearing down of the fat layers in the face. It is a permanent and natural-appearing method that exchanges fat from areas of excess to areas that are lacking.
Fat Grafting Procedure
Fat grafting normally entails collecting excess fat from one area of the body, rinsing it, and subsequently meticulously re-injecting it with specifically created needles within the spots necessitating improvement. The fat injections might need to be replicated repeatedly to accomplish the preferred result.
We expect only 50%-70% of the fat injected to be viable so over-injection is performed initially to achieve the desired final result. With this being said, it typically takes two or even three sessions of fat injection to achieve the desired result. However, most patients do not mind this since they are receiving a reduction of fat from the areas of their body where the fat is being harvested. Implicit in this is that we need fat in other areas of the body to harvest from. For example, body builders with very little body fat would not be candidates for fat transfer since they do not have fat in other areas of their body to donate to the fat-depleted area.
Recovery from Fat Grafting Procedure
Individuals who utilize fat injection therapy could be of all ages. Following the treatment, individuals will have swelling and bruising. The puffiness may last for weeks. The treated area might appear reddish in color for 48 hours. Frequently, regular routines are usually started again immediately. Your Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon will provide thorough and individualized recovery instructions.

I am truly very happy with Dr . Nazarian. Again thank you very much for doing such a great job.
Dr. Nazarian is the a 5 star plastic surgeon! I had a growing scalp mass above my left ear, kinda like a cyst, she told me it was called lipoma. Anyway she removed the cyst in her office even when I was told by other doctors that it had to be done at a hospital which is more cost full and inconvenient for your wallet. She’s a great doctor and definitely recommend anyone to visit her office, her receptionist is on point and is very kind, helpful, and welcoming when visiting the office or calling about your appointment.
Besides being a great surgeon, Dr Nazarian carries a line for PREGNANT women called Spa Momma which is made-in-the-USA with no lead, phthalates, formaldehyde, propylene glycol, and no pregnancy-contraindicated aromatherapy oils!!!!!! I am obsessed with the body oil and the body scrub! I was having some major itching issues and I tried everything but nothing really helped. Then I tried the itchies body oil and it was the first relief I had had in months and I have no stretch marks!!!!!!!! Dr Nazarian is so up to date and science based and is willing to take time and help you out no matter what you issue is!!! I love her professionalism and recommend 110%!
