Fat Injections

in Rogers, Bentonville, Fayetteville, Springdale Arkansas

Fat injections, also referred to as fat transfer or fat grafting, is the surgical process by which fat is transferred from one area of the body to another area. The surgical goal is to improve or augment the area where the fat is injected. The technique involves extracting adipose fat by liposuction, processing the fat, and then reinjecting purified fat into the area needing improvement.
