Adding fat? Imagine that!

Adding fat? Imagine that!

While most people think of plastic surgery as a method for removing fat, a growing trend among patients involves adding fat to strategic places in the face and body.

A more accurate way to describe the procedure would be transferring fat from one part of the body to another. That’s because the fat tissue is yours. It is removed from one part of the body using liposuction. It is then processed and reinjected into the desired area of the body.

The process can give the patient fuller lips, youthful cheeks or a rounder bottom. As we age, we lose volume in our faces, which results in sagging skin, wrinkles and other signs of aging.

One thing that makes this procedure popular is that it is less invasive than traditional surgery,  and often a more natural looking result.
