A graft occurs when a surgeon removes skin, tissue, muscle, and/or fat (with or without veins or arteries supplying blood to this material) and surgically attaches it to another part of the body. In facial plastic surgery grafts are used for various reconstructive purposes commonly after skin cancer removal.  They can also be used for hair transplantation. Fat grafts are used in facial plastic surgery for facial contouring, such as in cheeks or lips and have long lasting results.
