Fat grafting, also known as lipoinjection, is a process in which fat is harvested from one area of your body and injected into another. Through its years in use, fat grafting has shown to be an effective way to produce a softer and fuller look in the facial area. A body is much less likely to reject its own fat and results from grafting procedures can often outlast other types of facial fillers.

Fat grafting for breast augmentation has not enjoyed quite the same success as fat grafting for facial enhancement. In many cases, optimal results require multiple treatments which may still prove incapable of producing complete augmentation. However, there are some cases in which fat grafting may be ideal and, for some women, this treatment is preferable to other forms of breast augmentation.
