Fat transfer surgery has grown dramatically in popularity in the last few years. You might have heard of this procedure by its other popular names, fat grafting or fat injections. When patients are considering fillers or implants for augmentation, fat can be offered as an alternative. If you were thinking about a filler for your facial wrinkles AND also had areas on your body with undesirable fat, liposuction techniques can be utilized to remove and transfer it. The benefits of this are not only the fact that you removed unwanted fat …but, because fat was utilized instead of traditional fillers, there aren’t any ongoing maintenance treatments. Procedures like breast augmentation and buttock augmentation can also be achieved using this method. Basically, you can “transfer” fat from an unwanted area to the area you wish to augment. Imagine transferring your unwanted belly fat to your breasts instead …it can be reality! The surgery itself takes a bit longer to complete but the outcome is permanent and natural.
