Fat Grafting Q & A

What is fat grafting?

Fat grafting, or a fat transfer, refers to the process of taking unwanted adipose fat tissues from one area of your body, purifying it, and injecting it into other areas of your body to enhance volume. The face, hands, breasts, and buttocks (Brazilian butt lift) are frequent targets for fat grafts.

Many people opt for fat grafting to help get rid of:

  • Sunken cheeks
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Under-eye bags and dark circles

How does a fat grafting procedure work?

Fat grafting is a three-step process.


During the first step of your fat grafting procedure, Dr. Bhoot essentially extracts the fat with liposuction without using the laser.


The second step involves purifying the extracted fat in a process called centrifugation, where Dr. Bhoot uses a device that rotates at high speed, using centrifugal force to separate the substances of different densities.


The centrifugation process concentrates and purifies the fat ready for the third step: reinjection of the fat into the selected area.

Who is a good candidate for fat grafting?

To be a good candidate for fat grafting, you must have an adequate amount of removable fat. For example, fat grafting is an excellent solution for women who’ve had children and lost fullness in their breasts.

You should also have realistic expectations and a clear idea about what you’d like to achieve with the procedure.

Dr. Bhoot discusses your goals at your consultation to ensure you’re thoroughly prepared and have answers to all your questions.

What are the benefits of fat grafting?

Fat grafting has many benefits. It’s safe, the outcomes look natural, and most of the transferred fat remains at the injection site.

Since fat grafting uses your own fat cells, your body is unlikely to reject it or react negatively to it, making the procedures safe and effective. The recovery and healing process for fat grafting is much faster than traditional facelifts and other procedures, and the highly purified fat enhances blood circulation in your tissues.

Fat grafting can also correct misshapen breasts and doesn’t carry the possible complications of implants, such as implant displacement or fluid collection.
