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. As an alternative to augmentation or fillers, fat can very often be utilized. In cases when a traditional filler would be utilized to correct wrinkles, fat could be used instead. Basically, 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 needing 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 wouldn’t have to endure maintenance treatments due to absorption like with filler products. Augmenting body parts, traditionally completed using implants, can also be performed using fat transfer. Essentially, unwanted fat (often from the abdomen or leg areas) is removed and transferred to a more desirable area of the body. This is often done for breast or buttock augmentation. Obviously, a breast or buttock augmentation completed in this way will take a bit longer than a standard augmentation using implants. But, the result is permanent, natural and obviously you also remove unwanted fat simultaneously.
