Fat Grafting

Cosmetic Reconstructive

Are you tired of feeling self-conscious about your appearance due to volume loss in your face, breasts, or buttocks? Look no further than Phoenix Plastic Surgery – the premier plastic surgery practice in Phoenix and Scottsdale.  Our practice fuses surgical excellence, engineering precision, and a warm friendly environment to introduce you to the world of fat grafting—a procedure that enhances facial volume, smoothens wrinkles, and even plays a pivotal role in reconstructive surgery.

Engineering Excellence Meets Surgical Artistry:

Dr. Prucz’s exceptional background, boasting dual engineering degrees from Duke University and a prestigious medical degree from Johns Hopkins University, underscores his surgical expertise. This fusion of engineering precision and surgical finesse ensures that your fat grafting procedure delivers remarkable results, all while prioritizing your safety and comfort.

Eternal Radiance: Fat Grafting as a Permanent Filler

Fat grafting, also known as fat transfer, is a natural and safe alternative to traditional fillers that uses your own fat cells to restore volume and contour to the face, breasts, and buttocks. This versatile procedure can be customized to meet your unique needs and desired outcome.  You also get the added benefit of liposuction!

Benefits of Fat Grating

  • Natural Volume Restoration: Fat grafting involves the transfer of your body’s own fat from one area to another, such as the face, to restore youthful volume and contours.
  • Wrinkle Reduction: By filling in wrinkles and fine lines, fat grafting can smoothen the skin’s texture resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
  • Long-Lasting Results: Unlike temporary fillers, fat grafting offers the potential for permanent results as the transferred fat establishes its own blood supply and becomes integrated into the treated area.

 

Reconstruction and Revitalization: Role of Fat Grafting

  • Breast Reconstruction: Fat grafting plays a vital role in breast reconstruction allowing for natural and soft volume restoration following mastectomy or lumpectomy procedures.
  • Scar Revision: In reconstructive surgery, fat grafting can also be utilized to improve the appearance of scars and irregularities, contributing to a more harmonious outcome.
