Fat transfer surgery has grown immensely in popularity in the last few years. You might have heard of it by its other popular names, fat grafting or fat injections. Many times where fillers or traditional augmentation would be used, fat can actually be used instead. In cases when a traditional filler would be utilized to correct creases, fat could be used instead. Essentially, fat is removed (using liposuction) from an area of the body where you have unwanted fat. It is then, transferred to and injected into the area needing a filler. This allows for both a decrease in excess fat and the filling of wrinkles. In addition to removing excess fat you also wouldn’t have to endure maintenance treatments due to absorption like with filler products. Body part augmentation, traditionally done using implants, can also be achieved using fat transfer. Essentially, excess fat (often from the abdomen or leg areas) is removed and transferred to a more desirable area of the body. This is often done in breast or buttock augmentation. Because of the permanent and natural outcome of fat transfer, it has grown in popularity over the years. It does take more time than traditional implants or fillers, but it basically kills two birds with one stone. Removal of excess fat and increased breast size.
