Fat transfer surgery has grown immensely in popularity in recent years. You might have heard of it by its other common names, fat grafting or fat injections. When patients are considering fillers or implants for augmentation, fat can be offered as an alternative. In cases when a traditional filler would be utilized to correct wrinkles, fat could be transferred instead. Essentially, fat is removed (using liposuction) from an area of the body where you have extra fat. It is then, transferred to and injected into the area needing a filler. This allows for both a decrease in unwanted fat and the filling of wrinkles. The benefits of this are not merely the fact that you removed excess fat …but, because fat was used instead of traditional fillers, there aren’t any ongoing maintenance treatments. Fat transfers also offer a much more natural alternative to implants for augmenting parts of the body. This includes common areas like breasts and buttocks. Because of the permanent and natural outcome of fat transfer, it has grown 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.
