Fat grafting is performed in our office on an outpatient basis. Both the area from which the fat is taken and the treatment site are anesthetized with a local anesthetic. Using a small needle attached to a syringe, fat is removed from a donor site where the fat is most tightly packed, such as the abdomen.
Once removed, the fat is processed to remove excess fluid and then reinjected using another needle, which is placed just under the skin beneath the wrinkle. This process may be repeated until the desired correction has been achieved.
