Fat is another type of filler substance used to restore volume and contour curves naturally; it can be injected almost anywhere in the body. Fat can last for years, as it is a natural implant.
After injecting local anesthesia, unwanted fat can be harvested from the abdomen, hips, or thighs, and then processed and placed just under the skin. This minimally invasive technique appeals to patients who want a more long-lasting filler substance, with no possibility of an allergic reaction.
There is a stem-cell response in the skin where the fat is transplanted, so skin looks more radiant, with improved texture and tone.
