Fat transfer, sometimes called “fat grafting” or “fat injections”, is a very common cosmetic surgery procedure. As an alternative to augmentation or fillers, fat can very often be utilized. If you were considering a filler for your facial wrinkles AND also had areas on your body with unwanted fat, liposuction techniques may be utilized to remove and transfer it. By using fat instead of a traditional filler, you can get the desired result without the need for ongoing maintenance treatments that are required with filler products. Body part augmentation, traditionally completed using implants, can also be performed using fat transfer. Essentially, extra fat (often from the midsection or leg areas) is removed and transferred to a more desirable location. This is commonly done for breast or buttock augmentation. The procedure itself takes a bit longer to complete but the outcome is permanent and natural.
