Fat transfer, often times called “fat grafting” or “fat injections”, is a very common cosmetic surgery procedure. When patients are considering fillers or implants for augmentation, fat can be offered as an alternative. If you were considering a filler for your facial wrinkles AND also had areas on your body with unwanted fat, liposuction techniques can be used to remove and transfer that fat. In addition to removing undesirable fat you also would not have to endure maintenance treatments due to absorption like with filler products. Procedures like breast augmentation and buttock augmentation can also be achieved using this method. Essentially, you can “transfer” fat from an undesirable area to the area you want to augment. Imagine transferring your unwanted belly fat to your breasts instead …this can be done! Because of the permanent and natural result of fat transfer, it has increased in popularity over the years. It does take longer than traditional implants or fillers, but it basically kills two birds with one stone. Removal of excess fat and increased breast size.
