Is Fat Grafting a Good Solution for Facial Rejuvenation?

Although fat grafting is often cited in the media as an option for facial rejuvenation, board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Patti Flint finds the results to be unnatural and often temporary. Watch this video with Patti Flint, MD to find out why. If you want to learn about your facial rejuvenation options, contact our office today.

Video Transcription: Fat grafting is currently a very popular technique used in facial rejuvenation. I haven’t embraced the technique because it’s fairly unpredictable, and to my eye, creates some unnatural looking results. I think we’re much better off putting tissues back where they started with a surgical approach and not relying on fat, which is frequently reabsorbed quickly after grafting and needs to be revised.
