Fat injection reduces wrinkles and creases and plumps up areas that have lost volume as a result of surgery, injury, ageing or other causes. Transplanted fat that comes from the patient him- or herself does not carry a risk of allergic reaction or rejection. Other advantages include a short recovery time and usually long lasting results if it has been done properly.
Structural micro fat grafting can also be used to correct many other deformities such as hemifacial atrophy, cleft palette, and problems caused by liposuction. Fat grafting is now being used as an ancillary procedure to a facelift, brow lift, blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery, forehead lift, and breast augmentation.

Hands are one of the most visible unclothed areas of the human body and also one of the first areas to show visible signs of aging. The back of the normal hand is not a repository of fat and the attractive young hand is fuller looking. The key to the successful rejuvenation of the aging hand is to create an integrated layer of fat grafts over the back of the hand that makes the skin look and feel thicker with a slight youthful fullness. The back of an attractive, healthy appearing hand has a slight fullness that obscures veins and tendons but does not hide them.
