Fat Grafting Houston
Fat grafting or liposculture is method that can safely restore or enhance volume throughout the body. Fat is typically harvested from the abdomen or thighs by gentle suction and is transferred as small fat cells to the desired location. The added benefit is fat removal from unwanted areas. It has also potential for improving skin quality at the transfer site. Results are long lasting.
Applications include, but are not limited to:
- Facial contouring: As the face ages, the face thins, with a resulting appearance of hollow cheekbones, thinned lips and jowls. Fat grafting to these areas can restore a more youthful, refreshed, and healthy look. Fat can also be used to fill deep folds or creases, for example smile lines. Fat grafting has also been shown to clinically enhance the appearance of skin tone and texture.
- Body contouring: buttock augmentation.
- Breast: reconstruction after mastectomy.
- Reconstruction of scars or contour deformity after liposuction.
Please schedule a consultation with Dr. Carpin to discuss if you are a surgical candidate, and to review the risks, benefits, alternatives, and expected outcomes of the procedure.
