Structural Microfat Grafting

Add volume to your cheeks, eyes, hands and more, for a younger and more radiant appearance.

What if there was a way to remove fat from the parts of your body where it’s not wanted and move it to the parts of your body where it is? That’s essentially what microfat grafting is all about.

Some cosmetic surgeons have christened this the ultimate green procedure because nothing is wasted. Fatty tissue is transferred from your buttock or thigh to your cheeks, lips, hands, or under your eyes, working to fill out those areas that have become hollow. Microfat grafting is a longer-lasting alternative to short-term dermal fillers.

Makes Use of Your Unwanted Fat

As with everything we do at the Stem Cell Center, structural microfat grafting begins with a consultation. We invite you to sit down with one of our providers and to speak confidentially about your goals. We’ll then present you with some customized solutions, tailored to address your beauty and wellness objectives.

Fat is harvested from your body through minor liposuction. This is done while you are numbed with local anesthesia and usually takes less than an hour. The fat is then purified in the centrifuge, where unwanted oils are removed. After this, the purified fat is carefully injected into the targeted area. The provider creates a three-dimensional grid, or structure, just below the skin, which ensures that the desired result is achieved and long-lasting.

The end result is beautiful contouring and smooth, supple skin, with postoperative soreness that lasts just a day or two. Some patients may experience minor swelling or bruising for up to three weeks, but your provider will be able to offer you some simple solutions to keep minimize side effects.

Is Microfat Grafting For Me?

We recommend this procedure to patients who meet any of the following criteria:

  • Your face has become creased or sunken and you would like to restore some volume under your eyes, cheeks, and/or lips.
  • Your hands have aged poorly featuring a hollow appearance, with prominent veins or tendons.
  • You’ve used fillers and found them to be helpful, but wish you could find something a bit more long-lasting.
  • You want to minimize the appearance of scars or otherwise rejuvenate your skin.
