Volume loss of the face, body and hands are a common indicator of age and can exacerbate wrinkles or cause certain areas to appear hollow or recessed. While manufactured injectables can produce pleasing effects, fat grafting provides stunning and natural results with the patient’s own fat. The major challenge of fat grafting is to increase the rate of graft survival while avoiding undesirable outcomes. Based on scientific research and clinical experience, the single most important factor in a successful outcome is the surgeon’s technique. Over the past decade, Dr. Sung has developed refined skills which meticulously replenishes the volume without the use of synthetic materials.

- This procedure can be performed using either intravenous or local sedation.
- Fat is removed from the donor site via gentle liposuction.
- Fine cannulas are used to carefully transfer the fat
- The harvested fat is minimally manipulated to ensure maximum graft success.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT AFTER FAT GRAFTING?
Patients can expect to notice immediate improvement following their fat grafting procedure. The treatment areas will be plump and smooth, but it may take several weeks for any residual swelling to subside and reveal the final result. Carefully following all aftercare instructions increases the likelihood of success, producing long-lasting enhancement to the treated area.
WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF FAT GRAFTING?
Serious complications associated with fat grafting are rare, especially when performed by an accomplished, board-certified plastic surgeon. However, any surgery comes with risks that may include the following:
- Changes in sensation
- Bleeding or hematoma
- Visible scarring
- Abnormal reaction to anesthesia
