Fat Transfer to Breast, Butt, & Face in South Florida
What is fat transfer?
Fine lines and wrinkles can be filled with fat taken from other parts of the body. Fat transfer is also referred to as autologous fat transplantation or micro-lipoinjection. This procedure is used to plump up facial features with a patient’s own fat and is a popular alternative to other wrinkle treatments. Fat transfer to the face is a safe, natural, non-allergenic procedure designed to re-contour your face and can provide definition to your cheeks and chin. It can also be used to correct facial deformities.
What is the treatment plan?
During fat transfer, fat is removed from your thighs, buttocks, or abdomen via liposuction and then transferred to any area of your body. The injected fat will last the longest in areas of the body that remain relatively still. For this reason, fat transfer can be very successful for adding volume back to sunken cheeks. Since fat transfer uses your own fat cells, it is impossible to have an allergic reaction.
Fat transfer can also be used for hand rejuvenation and to correct deformities following injuries. With a small syringe, fat is drawn from an area of the body where your fat is tightly packed, such as your abdomen or your buttocks. The fat is then processed to remove excess fluids and re-injected using a new needle, which is placed just under your skin beneath the wrinkle.
