Fat Grafting in Portland
At VIPMediaSpa, Dr. Max Grishkevich, a double-board certified plastic surgeon, 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 augmentation 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. Breast injections of your fat can remedy asymmetry and dimples. Breast implants produce dramatic changes. With fat transfers to your breasts, the results are more subtle 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 substance that is used and the results that can be achieved. Analogous 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. Dr. Grishkevich also specializes in microlipoinjection, a technique that is used to precisely sculpt the treatment area. Fat grafting requires little to no downtime.
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 small tube 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. Look for signs of infection, such as redness, inflammation, and itching. If you notice any of these symptoms during your fat transfer recovery, call us to schedule a follow-up appointment
Fat Transfer FAQs
what our patients say
"I definitely plan on utilizing VIP MediSpa as much as I can."
"I’d like to say thanks to Dr. Grishkevich and his staff for making my procedure so painless and easy. I am very pleased with the results and still don’t recognize the person standing in the mirror!"
"Great service! Absolutely the best SPA I have visited in years. Very up-to-date equipment, really liked the interior design. I particularly enjoyed the atmosphere created by the gracious hosts and friendly personnel. Great deals/prices for the services, which they provide."
"Thank you all for everything! I will continue to “dance” through life and look as good as I feel!!"
"I just want you all to know how much I appreciate your office and staff. I am doing well – it has been nearly two weeks. I am still sore but the bruising is going away nicely. I am still a little swollen but can definitely see and feel the difference I was hoping for. I thought it was pretty funny when Dr. Max was so candid and said – “I hope you don’t think you will ever have a completely flat tummy…” No, believe me after 5 kids – 4 births – and my mid-life I just don’t want to feel pregnant anymore and that is how I felt. So I already feel better in my clothes and my ego at this stage of my life is good. My emotions are in check right now and I am starting to think about my future as a single, but elderly lady. Thanks so much for the boost. Good work, everyone. Keep it up! I will check in the next time I am in Portland."
"I love it when I look in the mirror now!! The difference is remarkable. I feel that I look natural, but so much better. It is such a joy to come into the spa, the staff is so warm, and make you welcome. You have a lifetime client and friend. Thank you!!"

"My experience at VIP MediSpa gave me freedom to be the young and healthy me that I feel I am – and to look the part. For the first time in many years I am not ashamed of my body! After years of wishing there was just some way to really be rid of my cellulite, I finally actually achieved what I thought might be impossible, and sometimes it still seems too good to be true. I would do it again in a second. Nothing that I experienced in my mesotherapy procedure was more painful than the years of hiding my body. I would do it again in a second!"
"VIP MediSpa has been wonderful. The Staff are pleasant and very helpful. All my questions were answered to my satisfaction. I’m very happy with the results from all my procedures and can’t wait to do more. Max is great and makes me feel comfortable about my decisions I have made. I recommend VIP to my friends and family."
