Fat transfer, often times called “fat grafting” or “fat injections”, is a very common cosmetic surgery procedure. As an alternative to augmentation or fillers, fat can very often be utilized. In the event you are thinking about 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 requiring a filler. This is done by removing the fat using lipsosuction and injecting it in the area being filled. Essentially, the fat is “transferred”, thus the name. The benefits of this are not merely the fact that you removed unwanted fat …but, because fat was used 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 want to augment. Imagine moving your unwanted belly fat to your breasts instead …it can be done! Because of the permanent and natural result of fat transfer, it has grown in popularity over recent years. It does take longer than traditional implants or fillers, but it basically kills two birds with one stone. Removal of extra fat and increased breast size.
