Fat transfer surgery has grown immensely in popularity in recent years. You may have heard of it by its other popular names, fat grafting or fat injections. In many cases where fillers or traditional augmentation would be used, fat can actually be used instead. In cases when a traditional filler would be used to correct wrinkles, fat could be transferred instead. Essentially, fat is removed (using liposuction) from an area of the body where you have unwanted fat. It is 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 and creases. The benefits of this are not only the fact that you removed unwanted fat …but, because fat was utilized instead of traditional fillers, there are no ongoing maintenance treatments. Body part augmentation, traditionally done using implants, can also be performed using fat transfer. Basically, excess fat (often from the abdomen or leg areas) is removed and transferred to a more desirable location. This is commonly done for breast or buttock augmentation. Obviously, a breast or buttock augmentation completed in this manner will take a bit longer than a traditional augmentation using implants. But, the result is permanent, natural and obviously you also remove excess fat at the same time.
