Fill, Plump & Shape

Fat injections are used to augment the size and shape of the lips and other soft tissue areas of the face and to fill out and contour other areas of the body, such as buttocks and breasts. Fat injections have a much lower risk of rejection or risks associated with allergies, and for this reason cosmetic surgeons tend to prefer them over other injectable options. Dr. Peter Fodor commonly recommends natural and synthetic options for injectables and fillers depending on the individual goals for the patient.

When it comes to augmentation using fat injections Dr. Fodor may recommend using materials such as AlloDerm® and GoreTex® or supplement and support additional volume. Specifically, AlloDerm® may be used in combination with fat injections in both the lip and breast to ensure proper volume can be achieved while GoreTex® may be used similarly to improve volume in the face.

What are Fat Injections?

Fat injections involve the injection of one’s own fat– taken from other parts of the body– into the lips, face, breast, body or buttocks. Used by themselves or with AlloDerm® and GoreTex® you can achieve the volume and youthful fullness you want in the areas you are most concerned with.

Do Fat Injections Have Risks?

In concept fat injections and other procedures that involve the transfer of one’s own fatty tissues is less risky than other options. This is due to the decreased chance of rejection, allergic reaction or adverse events. Many patients concerned with these types of risks consider fat injections to be attractive and as such, many plastic surgeons like injecting fat. Fat injections do have other challenges such as unpredictable longevity, even in expert hands of a leading cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Fodor.

If you are looking for a procedure that has a predictable longevity and result, Dr. Fodor may recommend hyaluronic acid-based fillers such as Restylane & Juvederm for facial augmentation over fat. Fat injections in the facial area require “maintenance” for lasting results. On the other hand, in other parts of the body, where blood supply is less abundant than in the face and therefore absorption is less likely, Dr. Fodor often uses fat harvested from one area of the body and transfers to another area of the body usually for the purposes of secondary (re-do) liposuction deformities. His preference for fat, in this case, is also based on the fact that commercially available filler materials would be prohibitively expensive to use in the volumes required in secondary (re-do) liposuction. For these reasons Dr. Fodor may recommend fat injections for patients looking to achieve volume in the breast and buttock areas.

Commonly fat injections are compared to other fillers such as BOTOX®, Dysport®, and XEOMIN® or other neurotoxins, or hyaluronic acid-based fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm when considering injectable solutions.

How Much Do Fat Injections Cost?
