Fat transfer, also known as fat grafting, involves the gentle removal of fat from unwanted areas of the body, and placing it in areas that need it most.
After the fat is carefully and painlessly removed from the stomach, arms, or leg areas, it is carefully prepared for re-injection the same day. It fills in wrinkles, skin folds, and areas of volume loss that you develop with aging. These fat transfer areas include the face, the breasts, the hips, the buttocks, and the hands.
The wonderful aspect of this technique is that your own transferred fat develops a blood supply and allows for great, natural results for many years to come. Additionally, there is a concentration of stem cells in fat which can improve the appearance of the overlying skin texture.
All of this can be accomplished in approximately 90 minutes in our surgical office suite with minimal downtime, no discomfort, and fast recovery. And of course with great, natural results that our patients love!
