Fat transfer surgery has grown immensely in popularity in the last few years. You may have heard of it by its other popular names, fat grafting or fat injections. When patients are thinking about fillers or implants for augmentation, fat can be offered as an alternative. In the event you are thinking about a filler to correct facial creases and you also have areas of your body with unwanted fat. This fat can be “transferred” from the unwanted area to the area requiring a filler. This is completed by removing the fat using lipsosuction and injecting it in the area being filled. Basically, the fat is “transferred”, thus the name. In addition to removing unwanted fat you also would not have to endure maintenance treatments due to absorption like 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 grown in popularity over recent years. It does take more time than traditional implants or fillers, but it essentially kills two birds with one stone. Removal of excess fat and increased breast size.
