Plastic surgeons have many methods of adding volume to the face and filling in wrinkles. Facial fat grafting is arguably the most natural of these methods, using fat cells harvested from other parts of the patient’s own body.
Because the material used in facial fat grafting – fat cells – is from the patient’s own body, it’s called “autologous” material. Other injectables instead use foreign substances. The body trusts autologous material more, meaning rejection by the body is very unlikely.
