Autologous fat is the most natural and economical filler used to improve the contours of the body.
In this procedure, fat is removed from unwanted fat pouches of a person’s body and is injected into the sites which require filling e.g scars or hollow cheeks. Since it is one’s own fat cells, there are no allergic reactions or unwanted side effect seen.
