Fat transfer, often times referred to as “fat grafting” or “fat injections”, is a very common plastic surgery procedure. As an alternative to augmentation or fillers, fat can very often be utilized. In cases when a traditional filler would be utilized to correct creases, fat could be used instead. Basically, fat is removed (using liposuction) from an area of the body where you have excess fat. It’s then, transferred to and injected into the area requiring a filler. This allows for both a decrease in excess fat and the filling of wrinkles. By using fat instead of a traditional filler, you can get the desired result without the need for follow-up maintenance treatments that are required with filler products. Fat transfers also offer a much more natural alternative to implants for augmenting body parts. This includes common areas like breasts and buttocks. Because of the permanent and natural result of fat transfer, it has increased in popularity over the years. It does take longer than traditional implants or fillers, but it basically kills two birds with one stone. Removal of excess fat and increased breast size.
