Procedures like breast augmentation and buttock augmentation can also be achieved using this method. Essentially, you can “transfer” fat from an unwanted area to the area you want to augment. Imagine moving your unwanted belly fat to your breasts instead …it can be done! Because of the permanent and natural outcome of fat transfer, it has increased in popularity over recent years. It does take longer than traditional implants or fillers, but it basically kills two birds with one stone. Removal of unwanted fat and increased breast size.
