Have you ever wished you could put that unwanted fat somewhere else in your body that lacks volume? With a fat transfer, you can! This cosmetic procedure allows you to augment and rejuvenate your face or body with your own fat.
What is a Fat Transfer?
Fat transfer, also known as fat grafting, involves removing excess fat from one area of the body and transferring it to another area. This cosmetic procedure combines the slimming effects of liposuction with a volume boost in strategic areas that augments certain features and improves your contour. The procedure can be performed on various parts of the body, such as the face, breasts, or buttocks.
A fat transfer starts with liposuction to remove fat from the donor site, typically an area with excess fat. The extracted fat is then purified and processed before being injected into the recipient site. Fat transfer is a popular procedure because it uses the patient’s own tissue, which reduces the risk of allergic reactions or rejection. It can also provide natural-looking results that last longer than other fillers or implants.
