Like injectable fillers, your own fat may be used to improve skin contour and produce a more youthful appearance by restoring lost volume.

Several forces - including exposure to sun, alcohol, and tobacco - cause the skin to lose structure and volume. Injury, illness, and various medications may also have negative effects on the skin. Loss of volume is almost always associated with loss of fat, known as lipoatrophy. From whatever cause, the resulting wrinkles, sunken cheeks, and other contour irregularities are associated with aging. Fat injections can reverse many of those unwelcome effects by restoring volume and improving contour.

Here is some information about fat injection.


  • Excellent choice for restoring volume
  • Used in most body areas
  • No allergic potential
  • Requires harvesting of living fat – usually from abdomen
  • 50% survival considered good
  • Requires initial over-correction
  • Most common side effects: bruising at donor or injection sites, swelling, and mild tenderness
  • Swelling usually resolves by two weeks
  • May require re-injection to achieve full initial correction
  • Long lasting
