Fat Transfer

 

Fat transfer

Is a procedure design to remove a patient’s own fat to re-implant it where needed. It is typically extracted from body parts like the abdomen, thighs, or arms, and injected into another area that requires plumping, such as a patient’s facial features or buttocks. When used as a facial filler, fat grafting can improve the creased and sunken areas of the face and add fullness to the lips and cheeks. Fat grafting is also commonly used in buttocks augmentation, usually in place of traditional butt implants. Immediately, after preparing the donor site for removal, the surgeon will withdraw the fat and transfer the fat to the new location that needs plumping. This fat transfer process will be repeated until the desired correction has been achieved.
