Fat transfer surgery has grown dramatically in popularity in the last few years. You may have heard of this procedure by its other common names, fat grafting or fat injections.

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 want to augment. Imagine moving 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 recent years. It does take longer than traditional implants or fillers, but it essentially kills two birds with one stone. Removal of excess fat and increased breast size.
