It’s a method where fat is drawn from the patient and replanted in another area of the body.
The best results are achieved on the face since it’s an area where fat perfectly takes root and is employed, for example to fill holes caused by acne.
Excellent results are achieved when filling the gluteus. Especially predisposed are young women with flattened, not falling gluteus who can reacquire roundness and tonicity.
During post-op there will be slight swelling and bruises where the fat has been drawn.
In terms of the breast, it is not a widely used method since problems especially arise related to diagnostics. Moreover, finding fat in a woman who has small breasts implies aspirating it in another body area where there should be plenty, difficult case in lean women. The patient is treated under local anesthesia and is discharged immediately.
