What is Micro Fat Grafting to the body?

Micro fat grafting to the body, also known as autologous fat transfer or fat grafting, is a surgical procedure that involves the transfer of fat from one area of the body to another. It is a minimally invasive technique used to enhance and contour different areas, restore volume, and correct any acquired deformities from previous liposuction or injury which resulted in a loss of subcutaneous fat. During the procedure, excess fat is harvested from donor sites such as the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks through liposuction. The harvested fat is then processed and purified before being injected into the desired areas, such as the breasts, buttocks, hands, or face, to achieve the desired shape and volume. The procedure aims to provide natural and long-lasting results by utilizing the patient’s own fat cells.

What is the process?

Micro fat grafting to the body involves extracting small amounts of fat from donor sites like the abdomen or thighs using gentle liposuction. The extracted fat is purified and injected into target areas that require augmentation or contouring, such as the buttocks or breasts. Dr. Chahin strategically places the fat grafts to create a smooth and natural appearance. Patients may experience some swelling and bruising during the recovery period. The procedure offers safe and long-lasting results, enhancing body contours and providing a more proportionate and sculpted appearance.

Benefits of Micro Fat Grafting to the body

Natural Results

Since the procedure uses your own fat cells, it provides a more natural and harmonious outcome compared to synthetic fillers. The transferred fat integrates with the surrounding tissues, resulting in a more natural look and feel.

Body Contouring

Micro fat grafting allows for precise sculpting and contouring of different areas of the body. It can enhance curves, restore lost volume, and improve body proportions, providing a more aesthetically pleasing silhouette.

Fat Reduction in Donor Sites

Liposuction is performed to harvest excess fat from donor areas. This helps to slim down and contour those areas, resulting in improved body shape overall.

Long-lasting Results

The transferred fat cells have the potential to become a permanent part of the recipient area. While some fat cells may be absorbed by the body over time, a significant portion usually survives and maintains long-term volume enhancement.


Micro fat grafting can be used for various body areas, including the breasts, buttocks, hands, face, and even scars. It offers flexibility in addressing different concerns and can be customized to suit individual patient needs.

Reduced Risk of Allergies or Rejection

Since the fat used in the procedure is from your own body, the risk of allergic reactions or rejection is minimal compared to synthetic materials.

Simultaneous Body Contouring and Enhancement

Micro fat grafting allows for dual benefits of contouring donor sites through liposuction while enhancing other areas with the transferred fat. This can provide a more comprehensive and balanced transformation.
Procedure Timeline
During your initial consultation, you will meet with Dr. Chahin to discuss your goals, areas of concern, and expectations. Dr. Chahin will evaluate your eligibility for the procedure and determine if you have sufficient donor fat available for grafting.
If you decide to proceed with micro fat grafting, you will schedule a pre-operative appointment. This appointment involves a detailed discussion of the procedure, pre-operative instructions, and any necessary medical tests or evaluations.
On the day of the surgery, liposuction will be performed to harvest fat from donor areas. The specific areas will depend on your individual needs and goals. Liposuction involves making small incisions and using specialized techniques to extract excess fat.
The harvested fat will undergo a purification process to remove impurities, blood, and oils. This ensures that only the healthy and viable fat cells are used for the grafting procedure.
The purified fat is then carefully injected into the desired areas of the body using small, precise cannulas. Dr. Chahin will strategically place the fat to achieve the desired contour and volume enhancement.
After the procedure, you will spend some time in the recovery area under observation. Once you are stable, you will be discharged to recover at home. The initial recovery period typically involves some swelling, bruising, and discomfort. Dr. Chahin will provide post-operative instructions on pain management, wound care, and when to schedule follow-up appointments.
Follow-up appointments are crucial for monitoring your healing progress and ensuring the best possible outcome. Dr. Chahin will schedule several appointments during the first few weeks after the surgery to assess your recovery, address any concerns, and monitor the results. Additional follow-up appointments will be scheduled to evaluate the long-term outcome of the procedure.

What is the recovery time after micro fat grafting?
The recovery time can vary depending on the individual and the extent of the procedure. Generally, patients can expect a few days of downtime to rest and allow the treated areas to heal. It’s common to experience swelling, bruising, and some discomfort during the initial stages of recovery. Dr. Chahin will provide specific post-operative instructions and medications to manage any discomfort and promote optimal healing.
Are the results of micro fat grafting permanent?
The results of micro fat grafting can be long-lasting, but it’s important to note that some fat absorption may occur over time. While a portion of the transferred fat typically survives and becomes a permanent part of the body, it is possible for a small percentage of the injected fat to be reabsorbed by the body. Dr. Chahin will discuss the expected longevity of the results and may recommend touch-up procedures if desired.
