Mission Viejo Fat Grafting is an excellent way to add some natural plumpness to an area that is too thin or that has shrunk or started sagging due to age. Fat grafting is most often used in the face where it can fill in thin spaces in the cheeks, lips and chin. However, it can also be used in a variety of other places throughout the body according to an individual’s needs.
Mission Viejo Fat Grafting Modern Procedures
Some individuals choose to have fat grafting done in place of traditional buttocks implants in Mission Viejo to create a more shapely derrière. Others who only want a modest increase in the size of the breasts may choose fat grafting over traditional breast augmentation. This process can also be used on people who have had lumpectomies due to breast cancer.
Fat grafting has many positives, especially because it uses cells taken directly from the individual’s own body. This ensures that the cells will not be rejected when they are placed in a new location. In addition, the fat cells are cleansed and treated using a unique centrifuge, ensuring that they are safe and healthy before being put back into the body. However, not every fat cell that is used will take to its new location. This is because new blood vessels will have to grow toward the replaced fat cells before they can thrive. Doctors estimate that between 30 and 95 percent of fat cells that are grafted take.
However, our Mission Viejo Fat Grafting performed at the OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique in Orange County uses the most modern techniques available.

Mission Viejo Fat Grafting Recovery
This is a same-day procedure, and patients will get to return home a few hours after the Mission Viejo fat grafting procedure. They will see Dr. Tavoussi for a follow-up appointment within the week. They may experience swelling in the affected areas for the first couple of weeks, but after this time, they will be able to see approximately how much of the fat grafting has taken. At our Clinique in Newport Beach, we are proud of our high patient satisfaction rates for this and all other cosmetic procedures.
