Fat grafting, also known as fat transfer or fat injections, is becoming an increasingly popular procedure for facial rejuvenation. If you desire a more youthful facial appearance, fat grafting at Bajaj Plastic Surgery in Oklahoma City may be right for you.
Benefits of Fat Grafting
- Restoring tissue volume
- Minimizing wrinkles and creases.
- Filling-out and reducing scars or defects.
- Augmenting fatty areas such as the buttocks
Before fat grafting, you will have a personal consultation with OKC top plastic surgeon Dr. Bajaj to determine if fat grafting surgery is suitable for you.
During your fat grafting procedure, Dr. Bajaj will remove fatty tissue with minimally invasive liposuction surgery in Oklahoma City. Fat is removed from a fat-rich part of the body, such as the abdomen or thighs, and is then cleaned and drained.
Oklahoma city plastic surgeon Dr. Bajaj will use a small needle to inject the fat into the area to be treated, usually into a muscle tissue, where a high concentration of blood vessels will nourish the fat. The whole procedure typically takes 30 minutes to an hour to perform, and can often be done in conjunction with other procedures, such as a face lift.
Recovery is generally quick, with minimal pain. But if you are experiencing any discomfort, Dr. Bajaj will prescribe a light narcotic, such as Tylenol with codeine. Sometimes fat injections can dissipate over time as the body can reabsorb certain amounts of fat. But, generally, the results tend to be long lasting or even permanent.
