Tags: Fat Grafting Common To 3 Of The Top 5 Most Increased Plastic Surgery Procedures Fat Transfer Graft Take
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery 2016 annual statistics show some interesting trends. Three of the five most increased surgical procedures were #1 Fat Graft to the Breast, #3 Buttock Lift and #4 Fat Graft to the Face; they each involve transferring a patient's own fat to an area where enhancement is desired. Fat grafting offers a way to improve contour without using an artificial implant. Saline breast implants have an excellent safety record and achieve enhancement that cannot be duplicated by fat. It is unlikely that this will replace breast implants in the forseeable future, although research is underway. Fat grafting is excellent for enhancing the buttocks, and used much more commonly than buttock implants. Facial fat grafting now is quite commonly done along with facelifting.
