Own fat can be used with excellent results in order to feed larger volume losses or land areas with the body's own material. The natural fat underlayment is a surgical method in which fat from a particular area (buttocks, abdomen, thighs) is gently sucked (liposuction). After a work-up with a special process it is injected again into another area (e.g. cheek areas of the face, chest).
