Fat transfer, sometimes called “fat grafting” or “fat injections”, is a very popular cosmetic surgery procedure. As an alternative to augmentation or fillers, fat can very often be utilized. In the event you are thinking about 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 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. The benefits of this are not only the fact that you removed unwanted 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 completed using this method. Essentially, you can “transfer” fat from an unwanted area to the area you wish to augment. Imagine transferring your unwanted belly fat to your breasts instead …this can be reality! The procedure itself takes a bit longer to complete but the results are permanent and natural.
