The Woodlands and Conroe Fat Grafting

If you have deep wrinkles on your face, scars, or indentations in your skin because of surgery, fat grafting is one option to erase those blemishes. Fat grafting is a fabulous option for many of our Conroe & The Woodlands patients because it allows them to avoid using many of the dermal fillers on the market in favor of using their own fat. Some patients can have adverse reactions to certain dermal fillers, and fat grafting is a good way around that. There are other tremendous benefits to fat grafting that you can see below.

What is Fat Grafting?

Conroe & The Woodlands patients who have wrinkles, scars, and indentations on their body are often eager to smooth them over. But while there are many different brands of dermal fillers on the market, not every patient is willing (or able) to use them. Dermal fillers can cause allergic reactions as well as some other undesirable side-effects.

Instead of those options, a fantastic alternative is called fat grafting. With this procedure, Dr. Myers actually takes fat from one area of the body using liposuction, processes and purifies it, and then injects it into “problem” areas using super-thin, specialized needles. Of course, the major benefit to using your own fat is that there is no risk of having a reaction to your own tissues.

Most commonly, Dr. Myers will remove fat from the buttocks, thighs, or the “love handle” area. These areas are ideal because the fat there is usually unwanted anyways so patients can also improve the contour of their body simultaneously.

Benefits of Fat Grafting

There are a few tremendous benefits for patients getting fat grafting.

  • Non-invasive – During the procedure, Dr. Myers will inject your own fat into the targeted areas as opposed to a facelift where incisions will need to be made.
  • Sometimes permanent – One of the best benefits to fat grafting is that in many cases the results can become permanent. Your body will actually send new blood vessels into the injected fat.
  • No reaction – Because fat grafting uses your own fat, there is very little to no risk of having an allergic reaction to it.

What Areas Can Be Targeted with Fat Grafting?

Conroe & The Woodlands patients can use fat grafting to enhance almost any area of their bodies. Breasts, buttocks, face, and even hand rejuvenation are all possible with fat grafting.

Recovering from Fat Grafting

Conroe & The Woodlands patients will often take up to a week or more before they are ready to be seen in public. Swelling and bruising can be significant for the first few days. After a week to 10 days, you may start to see a lot of improvement. After three weeks, most patients can get back into their regular routine.
