Fat Grafting for Scars

Dr. Roger Khouri, Plastic Surgeon with Baptist Health South Florida, explains a scar could be conceived as a brick wall separating into compartments that breaks down the healthy fat. “We go through the brick wall and create a bee hive that we fill with fat to have less brick and more fat.”

He says if they repeat this a few times, there is no more brick. They are able to melt away a scar by putting fat around it.
