Fat transfer, often times called “fat grafting” or “fat injections”, is a very popular plastic surgery procedure. As an alternative to augmentation or fillers, fat can very often be utilized. In the event you are considering a filler to correct facial creases and you also have areas of your body with unwanted fat. This fat can be “transferred” from the undesirable area to the area needing a filler. This is done by removing the fat using lipsosuction and injecting it in the region being filled. Basically, the fat is “transferred”, thus the name. By utilizing fat instead of a traditional filler, you can get the desired outcome without the need for ongoing maintenance treatments that are needed with filler products. Surgeries 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 reality! Obviously, a breast or buttock augmentation completed in this way will take a bit longer than a standard augmentation using implants. But, the outcome is permanent, natural and obviously you also remove excess fat at the same time.
