At Hogue Clinics, an autologous fat grafting treatment is an office-based procedure that involves harvesting of fat using local anesthesia, precision dimensional sizing of the fat aspirate clusters, then deployment or injection of the fat aspirate clusters for cosmetic enhancement, volume correction, regeneration of aged or damaged tissues.
What are Fat Aspirate Clusters?
Fat aspirate clusters is a term that refers to particles of fat that have been harvested, processed, and prepared for deployment (injection) as an autologous biologic agent. In other words, fat aspirate clusters are the injectable form of fat after harvesting and processing. Injectable fat functions to cushion, volumize, shape, and rejuvenate tissues that are aged, atrophied, depleted, deflated, distorted, and in need of tissue regeneration. Since fat is completely natural, it does not have the potential to cause an allergic reaction, unlike synthetic fillers, when injected back into the same person from which it was harvested from.
With advancements in biologic fat tissue preparation, the autologous fat grafting procedure is changing the ways in which harvested fat can be used for a host of clinical applications.
