Fat grafting is a very popular rejuvenation and reshaping procedure that achieves significant results. This minimally invasive technique uses fatty tissue from the patient’s own body in order to restore volume and plumpness that may have been lost due to age or weight loss.
With fat grafting in Richmond, fat is taken from parts of the body where there is excess fat (such as the abdomen, back, thighs, or hips) and is transferred to other areas where it is needed. Our Richmond fat grafting treatments can be performed for the face, breasts, or buttocks.
Many patients love fat grafting because they prefer using their own natural fat as opposed to injections or implants. They also love the fact that it’s a two-in-one procedure—liposuction and rejuvenation.
Breast Augmentation with Fat Grafting
Many patients who want more volume in their breasts choose fat grafting to get the results they want. This option works well for women who want a smaller increase in breast size and the most natural results possible, as breast fat grafting provides the most natural-filling breast augmentation option available.
Furthermore, there is no risk of allergic reactions or “rippling” when using your own natural fat for breast augmentation, which can occasionally result from breast implants.
Buttock Augmentation with Fat Grafting
For patients who want fuller, shapelier buttocks that look natural, fat grafting is an excellent option. If you feel that your buttocks are flat or tend to sag, a fat transfer augmentation of the buttock area can address this—and can transform the appearance of a patient’s entire torso and legs as well.

What can I Expect from Fat Grafting Results?
After the procedure, patients may experience swelling and bruising. Results will improve as the swelling decreases over the next few weeks.
Generally, the body will initially absorb some of the transferred fat; however, after this absorption, the fat that “takes” is essentially permanent.
