Fat Grafting

Fat grafting offers a long lasting alternative to dermal fillers to restore youthful volume and improve skin quality.

Fat Grafting in Portland

Dr. Richard Bensimon is a leading expert in fat grafting in Portland with more than 25 years experience achieving beautifully natural results for his patients. We believe fat grafting, also known as fat injection or fat sculpting, offers a better choice over dermal fillers.

The multiple advantages of fat grafting are substantial. Fat tissue contains fat cells that add structure and volume to the skin. The transplanted fat is receptive to the growth of new blood vessels allowing for some degree of permanent correction over dermal fillers. The fee for the procedure is cost effective and is not based on a per syringe price as in dermal fillers. In addition, fat is rich with natural stem cells that stimulate blood flow and can dramatically improve skin quality offering a longer lasting result over fillers.

How Fat Grafting is Performed
Fat grafting is a minimally invasive procedure performed comfortably in the office. The fat is harvested from the abdomen, thighs or hips using small liposuction cannulas. The refinements that Dr. Bensimon has perfected in his harvesting technique produce smaller particles of fat that provide a superior, beautifully natural result. He immediately injects the harvested fat into the face to sculpt and improve the contours.

How Fat Injections Are Used
Fat injections can be used to:

  • Improve naso-labial folds
  • Replace loss of volume in the cheek and chin area
  • Improvement the jaw line
  • Augment the lips
  • Improve “sunken eyes” and tear troughs
  • Erase frown lines
  • Replace lost volume in the temporal hollows and lateral brows for a “brow lift” look
  • Augment the buttocks
  • Soften contour irregularities after liposuction
  • Improve contours in breast reconstruction

Recovery from Fat Grafting
The downtime after facial fat sculpting may range from mild to moderate bruising and swelling over a few to several days. A variable degree of swelling and bruising is normal and expected. The recovery time can be shortened by the use of natural supplements and avoiding food and medication that can promote bruising.
