Interested in a convenient two-in-one aesthetic procedure? The autologous fat transfer technique serves to fill wrinkles and other skin issues while slimming down various areas of the body. What does it mean when a surgical technique is “autologous”?
When materials from a person’s body are harvested and then surgically reapplied to that same person’s body in some way, this is known as an autologous technique. Autologous techniques can be preferred for their low risk of both allergic reactions and rejection by the patient’s body.
Autologous fat transfer is a great way to use fat cells from flabby areas to heal facial skin issues.
