Fat transfers, also known as fat grafting, is a surgical procedure by which fat is transferred from one area of the body to another. This surgery is used to improve the area where the fat is injected. The fat tissue is usually removed from the thighs, belly, or buttocks and replaced in the face, lips, buttocks, hands, breasts, and more. This results in a healthier, more youthful appearance. Patients think of fat transfers as more natural than fillers that are synthetic. The more natural quality means fewer risks and side effects after the procedure. Once the fat is harvested it is processed and then reinjected with a needle or cannula. There might be some bruising and swelling after surgery, which is to be expected. Within a short amount of time the area will take and the results will be amazing! It is important to let our plastic surgeon know exactly what you want your results to be so we can ensure proper placement to give you back your youthful glow!
