Fat transfer, sometimes called “fat grafting” or “fat injections”, is a very common plastic surgery procedure. When patients are thinking about fillers or implants for augmentation, fat can be offered as an alternative. 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 needing 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. In addition to removing unwanted fat you also would not have to endure maintenance treatments due to absorption like with filler products. Procedures like breast augmentation and buttock augmentation can also be completed 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 …this can be done! Because of the permanent and natural outcome 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 unwanted fat and increased breast size.
