The fat is taken from other areas of the body, such as the hips and thighs. Your surgeon will discuss the areas of fat extraction with you during your consultation.
The fat is then filtered and re-injected into the areas that require more volume to smooth contour irregularities. Whilst the process sounds invasive, it is a relatively straightforward procedure that can be completed in just over an hour. There is no scarring, and you will not require an overnight stay in hospital. Following the operation, some of the fat will be reabsorbed.
Volume enhancement or the recontouring of irregularities can also be achieved with dermal fillers. Fillers vary in consistency, and some are ideal for filling out hollow areas like the temples. The permanency varies, but you can expect the results to last approximately nine months to a year.
