Fat Grafting in Portland
At VIPMediaSpa, Dr. Max Grishkevich, offers fat grafting for people in the Portland, OR, area. The technique uses your fat to add shape and volume to the face and body.
About Fat Grafting
With a fat transfer, you can use fat from one area of your body to enhance another area. We recommend fat transfer for people who want to add volume to their face, buttocks, breasts, and other areas without implants or injectables. A Brazilian butt lift is one of the most popular types of fat transplantation procedures, and we also offer facial enhancement with fat injections and autologous fat breast augmentation. Fat transfer to the breast can restore lost volume, correct asymmetry or it can be done to go up in cup size. With fat transfers to your breasts, the results are more natural and targeted. Fat transfers to the face are typically recommended for anti-aging, but they can also be used for lip augmentation and enhancing facial contours. Liposculpting with fat transfers to the hips helps to refine and smooth your curves.
Benefits of Fat Grafting
Fat grafting offers a type of natural augmentation, both in the feel and the appearance that can be achieved. Autologous fat transplantation is performed with your fat that is harvested via liposuction. The treatment area is carefully sculpted with fat injections to enhance your natural contours.
How Does Fat Grafting Work?
The fat grafting procedure involves two steps. For the first step, Dr. Grishkevich uses liposuction to harvest the fat cells. A small incision is made in your skin through which a cannula is inserted. Next, the fat is purified and put into a syringe. Through a technique known as lipofilling, the fat is injected into the treatment area. The entire fat transplantation process may require several injections for a consistent and natural appearance. Lipo sculpting is an excellent way to add just a little more shape to your body. It gives the appearance of a natural augmentation that is very subtle.
What to Expect After Fat Grafting
Healing after a lipo transfer can take three to seven days. After your fat transfer procedure, you will have two areas to monitor while healing. The first is the site where injections were made for facial and body sculpting. Avoid putting pressure on this area so the fat cells can settle into the tissues. Any disturbance to this area may affect your fat grafting results. The site where liposuction was performed is another area to monitor during your fat transfer recovery. Incisions from fat relocation surgery are small enough to heal without sutures.
