Fat transfer surgery has grown dramatically in popularity in the last few years. You may have heard of this procedure by its other popular names, fat grafting or fat injections. When patients are thinking about fillers or implants for augmentation, fat can be used as an alternative. If you were thinking about a filler for your facial creases AND also had regions on your body with undesirable fat, liposuction techniques can be utilized to remove and transfer that fat. The benefits of this are not only the fact that you removed excess fat …but, because fat was used instead of traditional fillers, there are no ongoing maintenance treatments. Procedures 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 transferring your unwanted belly fat to your breasts instead …it can be done! The procedure itself takes a bit longer to perform but the outcome is permanent and natural.
