Fat Grafting, Fat Injection or Fat Transfer
Fat Grafting is also called free fat transfer, liposculpture, lipostructure, structural fat grafting and fat injections. This is a procedure which removes excess fat cells from one area of the body and then transfers the fat to where it is needed.
The advantage of fat grafting at our Birmingham, Alabama cosmetic surgery center is that the fat comes from your own body, so you cannot develop an allergic reaction unlike other external implant substances that are introduced into the body. Your body naturally accepts the injected fat.
The Brazilian Butt Lift is a popular fat grafting procedure at Hedden Plastic Surgery used for augmentation of the buttocks.

Fat grafting may be performed at our facility on an outpatient basis. There are basically three parts to the procedure:
A moderate amount of swelling is expected after the fat graft. This is usually evident for 2 weeks after the procedure. Some bruising may also be apparent. A percentage of the fat grafts are resorbed by the body and overcorrection may initially be evident. It is currently unknown what percentage of the fat grafts are ultimately resorbed, but modern techniques and instrumentation have decreased this percentage considerably over the past few years.
