Fat Transfers

Naples Plastic Surgery

A fat grafting procedure typically transfers fat from areas that already possess an excess of fat. Areas like the abdomen, thighs or buttocks are a good example of an area to graft fat from. The purpose of fat transfers are to remove fat from these areas and transfer it to areas like the face, hands, breast and body. This procedure is considered safe and long-lasting and will produce an exquisite natural-looking outcome.
Fat from your own body reduces the chance of any adverse reaction as opposed to the slightly higher chance of reacting to foreign substances used for similar procedures.

Fat Transfer Procedure Options

Facial Filler – If you suffer from creases or wrinkles in your face like laugh lines, smile lines, crow’s feet or otherwise, fat can be transferred from areas like the abdomen or thighs and injected into areas of the face. Acne scars or areas of the face which have sunken either from age or previous procedures can be filled in as well. Your surgeon is also able to utilize the fat to significantly reduce the lines between the nose and mouth.
Breast Enhancement – Fat transfer can be used to increase breast size by a modest amount. A good candidate for breast augmentation via fat transfer should have a healthy skin tone and good skin elasticity. If you have a lack of skin elasticity or sagging, or if you would like a more significant increase in size, you should consider breast augmentation instead.
Hand Rejuvenation – This type of fat transfer is effective for adding volume to the hands and plumping the wrinkled areas. This will also cover protruding vessels and tendons which will improve the quality of your skin.

Recovering from Fat Transfer Surgery

Patients should speak to their surgeon about how long they should wait until they can resume normal activities after fat transfer surgery. You may swell and bruise to a degree with a significant improvement between seven and ten days.

Your Fat Transfer Procedure

Fat is removed from one part of your body and treated so it is purified. It is then professionally injected to the areas in need of augmentation. It is possible, and sometimes recommended, to have fat grafting repeated on certain areas. There are three stages to your fat transfer. Removal, purification, and transfer.
