Fat transfer, often times called “fat grafting” or “fat injections”, is a very common cosmetic surgery procedure. When patients are thinking about fillers or implants for augmentation, fat can be used as an alternative. In the event you are considering a filler to correct wrinkles and you also have places on your body with unwanted fat. This fat can be “transferred” from the undesirable area to the area requiring a filler. This is done by removing the fat using lipsosuction and injecting it in the area being filled. Essentially, the fat is “transferred”, thus the name. In addition to removing undesirable fat you also wouldn’t have to endure maintenance treatments due to absorption like with filler products. Procedures like breast augmentation and buttock augmentation can also be achieved using this method. Basically, you can “transfer” fat from an unwanted area to the area you wish to augment. Imagine transferring your unwanted belly fat to your breasts instead …it can be done! Obviously, a breast or buttock augmentation completed in this way will take a bit longer than a standard augmentation using implants. But, the end result is permanent, natural and obviously you also remove unwanted fat at the same time.
