Fat Grafting | Fat Injection | Fat transfer: A Single Injection Enough to improve Feature, Scar & Volume

"Improve the skin quality, rectify signs of aging & restore youthfulness with fat injection."

·       Are you unhappy with the effects of aging on your face?

·       Are you dissatisfied with the size of your breasts or buttock or need a contour improvement?

·       Do you want a lip enhancement or cheek volume restoration?

·       Are you worried about acne scars, wrinkles, and fine lines?

·       Do you want a perfect jawline, high cheekbone, and sharp chin?

·       Do you desire a more youthful-looking face?

Suppose you are interested in restoring youthfulness with the most natural results for specific areas in your body, especially the face. In that case, you should go for fat transfer augmentation. Fat transfer corrects the sign of facial aging. It improves the contour of the desired areas of the body, i.e., breast, buttock, or face, by removing fat from the chosen areas such as buttocks, thighs, or other areas and transferring it by injection to the desired areas of the face or wherever fat is required. The fat transfer/augmentation/grafting is medically proven as a natural process because it's your own body fat that is taken/harvested to fill the gap, and a patient gets able to improve the aging sign or body contour; thus, there is no fear of any side effects or reactions as well. This is considered one of the safest methods in cosmetic surgery to achieve the desired youthful results rather than fillers.

If you want a natural result of a youthful-looking face and improve the volume and contour, try fat transfer augmentation by Dr. Karishma Kagodu, Bangalore, India's renowned plastic cosmetic surgeon.


You can't change your age, but you can turn the clock and effectively reverse the sign of aging with the fat transfer augmentation cosmetic procedure. Most of us are curious about fat transfer and fillers, and we might get confused about them. As a plastic surgeon, I often come across many questions asked by the patients, which method would be the best and why yes for fat augmentation/transfer?

It depends on your body status and the fat present in your body that can allow a surgeon to perform the procedure. It is not selective but a conditional one that is only allowed if you have enough fat in your body to make the procedure successful; otherwise, we recommend fillers.

FILLERS OR DERMAL FILLERS: These are synthetic or naturally occurring substances injected into the lines, wrinkles, folds, and tissues of the face to improve the aging signs. These injectable fillers are foreign materials to the body and may trigger allergic reactions in sensitive people. Thus, it is recommended to perform fat transfer augmentation if you meet the required criteria. Fillers are also called injectable implants, wrinkle fillers, and soft tissue fillers.

Fat Grafting for Face:

Fat transfer to the face is a good option to correct the signs of facial aging. It is done by injecting a small amount of fat into the treatment area, improving the face's shape and contour. In addition, fat transfer augmentation corrects the wrinkles & fine lines, crow's feet, and smile lines. If you have a deep breakdown of fat under the eyes and look older or stressed out, you can improve it through the fat transfer procedure. Dr. Karishma Kagodu has expertise in restoring beauty in the treated area through the fat transfer of viable fat cells.

Fat Grafting for Breasts:

Aside from implants or other fillers, fat grafting for the breasts enhances the breast size and volume via fat harvesting from one part of the body, usually through liposuction and injected into the breasts. Removing fat cells through liposuction has become very easy today due to the advanced VASER or LASER liposuction method. We at DR. Karishma Aesthetics perform 3-D high-definition VASER liposuction to extract the fat, which gives the best results of painless and nearly invisible liposuction scars. The body's fat becomes natural fillers, helpful in reshaping and lending volume to breasts and enhancing the size and contour of the same effectively. Fat grafting for breasts is only allowed when women want to go up by ½ or 1 cup size. For improving in size, breast augmentation is primarily done through two basic methods, i.e., Implants & fat grafting.

Fat Grafting for Buttock:

The buttock augmentation procedure is only done with fat grafting. Fat transfer augmentation/grafting for the buttocks is done to enhance the size, shape, and volume; likewise, the procedure is done to enhance the breast size. Here also, the same method of fat extraction of liposuction is done and transferred through injection to the desired buttock area. Fat is excavated from thighs, abdomen, arms, or legs and transferred to the treatment location.


Fat transfer augmentation can be done on any part of the body. The common application areas are as follows: -

·       Pitted acne scars

·       Cheeks

·       Lips

·       Eyelids

·       Buttocks

·       Breasts

The fat transfer is non-invasive and usually performed as an outpatient procedure. At Dr. Karishma Aesthetics, DR. Karishma Kagodu will evaluate your problem state, remove fat from the abdomen, hips, lower back, outer thighs, or inner thighs and transfer it into the treatment area, followed by fat purification.

Following are the steps: -

A)  Harvesting of Fat: -

A small incision is made to remove fat from the targeted body area. This is usually done with liposuction and local anesthesia. The harvested fat is further sent to the purification step.

B)   Purification & Transfer: -

The fat cells are separated from the liquid, so it spins at a very high speed in a centrifuge machine. In this spin process, the damaged cells are removed, and only whole, pure, and cleansed fat cells are used for the transferring process.

C)  Placement: -

This is the final step, where the surgeon precisely deposits fat in a natural grid. The recipient site for fat injection would be created at the very first beginning of the procedure while evaluation is done. Then, the surgeon precisely identifies the sites of imperfection and gives a fat injection to correct the depressions and create a new contour.


Fat transfer results are immediately visible with improved facial rejuvenation or body contour wherever the fat transfer augmentation procedure is done. However, the most significant aspect of fat transfer is its long-lasting results, longer than many years or permanently, that set the procedure as the modest cost cosmetic option.

Resuming Work:

A temporary swelling, bruising, and the patients can experience pain at the sites where fat is extracted and grafted, but it's all minimal. After that, it goes on its own, followed by prescription medications. It is instructed to follow all the post-care advice your surgeon gives to achieve a smooth healing process and easy recovery. Avoid alcohol and smoking for two weeks before and one week after receiving the procedure. You can resume office work and other light activities within a week.


When it comes to surgery, every surgical procedure carries some set of risks or uncertainties. Still, it is the safest and risk-free procedure compared to fillers, dermal fillers, or any other cosmetic surgery. Here the body's own fat is used for fillers; therefore, the chances of chemical reactions are negligible, and a patient can achieve the most natural results with a long-lasting effect. DR. Karishma Aesthetics clinic is the best in cutting-edge technology, expertise, 5-star facilities, international level of hygiene & safety, and patient care. Fat transfer is one of the cornerstones of facial rejuvenation, and Dr. Karishma Kagodu does this treatment frequently and in conjunction with other surgeries.

Some common discomforts, as a part of the healing process, can be experienced with: -

·       Swelling: Swelling goes within a week once healing is completed.

·       Bruising: Temporary bruising is also settled within a week.

·       Minor pain: Pain is very minimal, but prescription medications are given.


The results are long-lasting or permanent but may vary from one patient to another based on their physiological or anatomical status. However, the results shouldn't be considered permanent. As you become old, it is natural to lose volume in the face; therefore, the fat grafting procedure may have to be repeated. Fat grafting is a solution for those who want a quick, easy, risk-free, minimal downtime but a long-lasting effect at the modest cost of a cosmetic procedure.


Swelling, Bruising & Pain: Temporary swelling, bruising, and pain can be experienced in the areas where fat has been removed and grafted. The pain would be bearable or minimal that can be controlled effectively with the pain medications. Swelling and bruising go away over the next couple of weeks.

The recovery time is only 1-3 days: The fat transfer procedure is minimally invasive, and the recovery time is short. It means you can resume normal activities within 1-3 days. Every day the result will improve, and you will look or experience better and better.

Some FAQs of Fat Transfer Procedure:

1.    Is fat transfer a substitute for weight loss surgery?

No, this is not a substitute for weight loss, but it can effectively slim down the area to a certain degree to meet the requirement of fullness in the face and other body areas such as breasts or buttocks. It is advisable to reach a stable weight before the procedure, and avoiding future weight gain helps sustain the results for a long time.

2.    What type of anesthesia is employed for fat transfer?

Generally, it is performed under local anesthesia, but the extent of the surgery decides the best one. Our expert anesthesiologist will use their experienced judgment to make the call. However, general anesthesia may require in some cases.

3.    Are there any limitations to what facial fat transfer can do?

Usually, fat transfer is suitable for those patients who have enough amount of fat in the body. At the same time, most men and women have some areas of unwanted fat that are used effectively to perform the surgery. Very thin patients are not eligible for this procedure, but it is again decided by the targeted areas to be treated. However, facial rejuvenation with fat transfer for thin patients is usually not a problem due to the small amount of fat requirement.

4.    Is fat transfer permanent?

Yes, it has long-lasting or permanent results, somewhat dependent on the area where the fat is placed. For example, fat transfer done in temples and cheeks will have longer results or even be permanent due to the less movement of these areas. While the lips, which are the most mobile structures, will have less fat survival rate. Thus, the less movement in an area, the better the fat survives.

5.    When can I resume my normal activities?

You can resume your normal activities from the next day of the surgery if minor swelling or pain is bearable and doesn't cause further discomfort. Although, we suggest taking a rest for a few days to achieve a smooth healing or easy recovery.

6.    Where are my fat cells collected from?

Fat cells are usually collected from regions of your body where the fat volume is extremely dense such as the thighs or buttocks.

7.    How and why is fat grafting/transfer so effective?

There is no chance of side effects or chemical reactions because your body fat is placed in the treated areas to offer the desired contour, shape, volume, and youthfulness. It is a natural way of rejuvenation and sculpting that adds the natural benefit of achieving the desired outcomes. In addition, when fat cells are re-injected into your body, they are likely to survive and thrive due to the tendency of new blood supply to grow back into those cells.

8.    How long does the fat transfer/grafting procedure take?

It takes anywhere from 1-5 hours, depending on the areas of the body in which fat is harvested or grafted. For example, fat transfer for the face can be done in 2-3 hours, whereas the same procedure for the buttocks or breasts with the help of liposuction may take between 4-5 hours.
