FAT GRAFTING BREAST AUGMENTATION IN FAIRFIELD COUNTY
Breast Augmentation With Fat Grafting
Fat grafting, also known as autologous fat transplantation or micro-lipoinjection, is becoming more commonly used as a natural and rejuvenating augmentation method. This surgical procedure requires the minimally invasive liposuction of a designated fat-rich area on your body and is then reinjected into another location on your body. This procedure is the preferred method used by Dr. Margoles for breast augmentation and reconstruction.
Benefits of Fat Grafting Surgery
Patients who decide upon fat grating surgery are often seeking an alternative to injectable fillers. The concept of fat grafting is appealing to some patients because it uses the individuals own fatty tissues to supplement areas that appear sunken or depressed.
Fat grafting surgery is best used to:
- Correct skin depressions
- Minimize wrinkles
- Restore tissue volume
- Augment fatty areas such as the buttocks and breasts.
- Enhance thin lips
In order to undergo fat grafting surgery, you must have enough fatty tissue at the harvest site to be transplanted. Patients do not have allergic reactions to fat grafts as they might with fillers.
Before and After Breast Augmentation with Fat Grafting in Fairfield County
Your Fat Grafting Surgery with Dr. Margoles
The first step in your fat grafting procedure is to remove the fatty tissue from the harvest site. This is accomplished by making a small incision at the desired location and suctioning out a conservative amount of fat. Your fat tissue will be cleansed and then reinjected with a needle beneath the surface of your skin at the treatment site. Your incision will be close with sutures and wrapped in surgical gauze.
What to Expect After Your Fat Grafting Surgery
Recovery is generally quick and the effects of fat grafting are long-lasting. Patients can expect swelling, bruising and redness at both the removal and injection sites. Dr. Margoles may advise you to avoid direct sunlight for 48 hours or use sunblock to protect the sensitive areas. If there is discomfort, Dr. Margoles can prescribe you medication to control the pain.
