When we hear the word fat we automatically think ugh, something bad! What if fat can also be something good? Fat transfer or grafting during a facelift or on its own can restore fullness that is lost as an inherent part of the aging face. Small amounts of fat from the stomach, thighs or hips is extracted and reinjected into areas with volume loss where it integrates into the living tissue. Since the fat graft is not a foreign material, there is no risk of rejection and it can stay in the area for years to come.
