Fat transfer surgery has grown immensely in popularity in the last few years. You might have heard of this procedure by its other common names, fat grafting or fat injections. As an alternative to augmentation or fillers, fat can very often be utilized. In cases when a traditional filler would be utilized to correct creases, fat could be transferred instead. Essentially, fat is removed (using liposuction) from an area of the body where you have excess fat. It’s 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 and creases. By utilizing fat instead of a traditional filler, you can get the desired outcome without the need for follow-up maintenance treatments that are required with filler products. Fat transfers also offer a much more natural alternative to implants for augmenting parts of the body. This includes common areas like breasts and buttocks. The procedure itself takes a bit longer to complete but the outcome is permanent and natural.
