Fat transfer, sometimes referred to as “fat grafting” or “fat injections”, is a very common cosmetic surgery procedure. In many cases where fillers or traditional augmentation would be utilized, fat can actually be utilized instead. In the event you are considering a filler to correct facial creases and you also have places on your body with unwanted fat. This fat can be “transferred” from the undesirable area to the area requiring a filler. This is completed by removing the fat using lipsosuction and injecting it in the area being filled. Basically, the fat is “transferred”, hence the name. In addition to removing undesirable fat you also wouldn’t have to endure maintenance treatments due to absorption like with filler products. Surgeries like breast augmentation and buttock augmentation can also be achieved using this method. Essentially, you can “transfer” fat from an undesirable area to the area you wish to augment. Imagine moving your unwanted belly fat to your breasts instead …this can be done! The procedure itself takes a bit longer to perform but the results are permanent and natural.
