Being human means having excess fat in some areas of your body and not enough in other areas you wish were more plump.

A slightly disproportionate body shape is extremely common and causes many people to view their body in a negative way. We want you to be the most confident version of yourself possible. If you think fat grafting can help with that, here’s what you need to know…

What is Fat Grafting?

Over the past 15 years, fat grafting has been researched and refined to maintain best practices and create precise results. During this procedure, fat cells are harvested from areas with excess fat (such as the inner thighs or abdomen), then placed into fat pads that have lost volume due to the aging process.

An early adopter of fat grafting, Dr. Lucas has been using this technique in facial and eyelid rejuvenation surgeries for years. By restoring the lost fat from aging areas of the mid and lower face (such as the cheeks, chins, and mouth), he’s able to lift and rejuvenate deflated skin during face and neck lift procedures.

Areas that may benefit from fat grafting
  • Face: restore age-related fat loss, especially in the middle cheek area
  • Breast: smooth out depressions, replenish depleted tissue, and fill in hollow areas for long-lasting results
  • Body: enhance, reposition, and reshape the buttock and thighs for a natural-looking boost
