Fat transfer surgery has grown dramatically in popularity in recent years. You may have heard of this procedure by its other common names, fat grafting or fat injections. As an alternative to augmentation or fillers, fat can very often be utilized. In the event you are thinking about a filler to correct wrinkles and you also have areas of your body with unwanted fat. This fat can be “transferred” from the unwanted area to the area requiring a filler. This is completed by removing the fat using lipsosuction and injecting it in the area being filled. Basically, the fat is “transferred”, thus the name. 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. Surgeries 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 moving your unwanted belly fat to your breasts instead …it can be reality! The surgery itself takes a bit longer to perform but the outcome is permanent and natural.
