Who is a Candidate for Fat Grafting? |

Most women are candidates for Cosmetic Fat Grafting, but there are disqualifiers, such as smoker, people getting chemotherapy or angiogenesis inhibitor, women taking aspirin and other over-the-counter food supplements and vitamins that may impair blood clotting, and women with poor understanding of the procedure and inability to comply with the expansion treatment.

Dr. Daniel Calva, Plastic Surgeon at Baptist Health South Florida, says a very thin woman can do this procedure, because they don’t want to take too much fat from one specific area, they go through a large surface area, abdomen, back, arms and legs, and they take a very thin layer of fat.
