Fat transfer surgery has grown dramatically in popularity in the last few years. You may have heard of this procedure by its other popular names, fat grafting or fat injections. In many cases where fillers or traditional augmentation would be utilized, fat can actually be used instead. In cases when a traditional filler would be used to correct wrinkles, fat could be transferred instead. Basically, fat is removed (using liposuction) from an area of the body where you have extra fat. It’s then, transferred to and injected into the area requiring a filler. This allows for both a decrease in unwanted fat and the filling of wrinkles and creases. In addition to removing undesirable fat you also would not have to go through maintenance treatments due to absorption like with filler products. Augmenting body parts, traditionally achieved using implants, can also be performed using fat transfer. Basically, extra fat (often from the abdomen or leg areas) is removed and transferred to a more desirable location. This is commonly done in breast or buttock augmentation. Because of the permanent and natural result of fat transfer, it has increased in popularity over recent years. It does take more time than standard implants or fillers, but it essentially kills two birds with one stone. Removal of extra fat and increased breast size.
