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 used. In cases when a traditional filler would be utilized to correct wrinkles, fat could be used instead. Essentially, 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 requiring a filler. This allows for both a decrease in excess fat and the filling of wrinkles and creases. In addition to removing unwanted fat you also would not have to endure maintenance treatments due to absorption like with filler products. Augmenting body parts, traditionally achieved using implants, can also be achieved using fat transfer. Essentially, excess fat (often from the abdomen or leg areas) is removed and transferred to a more desirable area of the body. This is commonly done in breast or buttock augmentation. The surgery itself takes a bit longer to complete but the results are permanent and natural.
