Fat grafting doesn’t seem as popular as other procedures. Is it not as effective as surgery or fillers?
Fat grafting is becoming more popular all the time because of the recognition of the importance of volume loss in facial aging, the effectiveness of the procedure, and the longevity of the results. The technique has evolved over the last 10 years or so and not everyone has caught on. Fat is not as popular as fillers because fillers can be performed by a much larger group of providers. Fat grafting requires skill and should only be performed by individuals with a great deal of knowledge about facial aging and surgical skill. Fat grafting is often performed with surgery in our practice and is as important to the outcome as the surgery. Our website has many before and after photos of fat grafting and will explain the procedure in more detail.
