Fat Grafting has been utilized by Dr. James Newman to augment areas of soft tissue loss.  The face has been the most common site for fat grafting to enhance cheeks, grooves and lips.  Beginning in 2005, the breast and buttocks area has responded extremely well to fat grafting and maintains long lasting results.  In this case, a deficiency in the upper pole and inframammary fullness was corrected with autologous fat harvesting from the patients abdomen and thighs.
