Fat is not your enemy! In fact, fat can be your friend. Fat transfer, or fat graft, is a procedure in which excess fat is harvested from an unwanted area and replaced somewhere else on your body to create beautiful, soft, natural volume.

Fat transfer to create a youthful look

As previously thought, sagging skin is not simply the result of gravity; it is also about a loss of volume. Facial fat grafting involves the transfer of fat to specific areas of the face to restore volume and achieve a rejuvenated appearance. Anyone who was accused of having a round face when they were younger gets the last laugh when they hit middle age. If you look at an old picture, you look younger partly because you have more fat in the right places. We use fat transfer to strategically restore this lost volume. The result is a more youthful, completely natural look to your face, breasts, or body.

Fat grafting

During your fat grafting procedure, We will use gentle liposuction to harvest excess fat from a body area where you have too much. The harvested fat is taken from various donor sites such as the abdomen, love handles, inner thighs, outer thighs, or buttocks.

The benefits of natural fat grafting are that you are not only adding volume but also reshaping and sculpting your body when harvesting fat cells for transfer. The results can be a dramatic improvement in body appearance.

What body areas can be
enhanced with natural fat transfer?

Once the fat is harvested, it is processed, purified, and prepared for re-injection as injected fat. Dr. Helen Allison will artfully inject the fat cells into the areas needing enhancement or plumping. Possible placement areas for natural fat transfer include:

Breasts

In the right patient, a breast augmentation with fat grafting alone may be possible to reconstruct or enhance breast tissue. In general, she uses fat transfer on breast augmentation and breast reconstruction patients to enhance the appearance of a breast implant by smoothing out any irregularities and/or improving contour in the upper pole.

Face

Fat injection to the face can be used to fill in fine lines and wrinkles, restore volume to the mid-face/cheeks, fill in dark hollows under the eye, eliminate a sunken appearance around the temples, and plump up the lips.

Buttocks

One of the hottest procedures these days is a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) or buttock augmentation. Fat transfer surgery to the buttocks can increase volume, restore volume that has been lost with age, and change the shape and contour of your butt.

Hands

Carefully placed fat injections can rejuvenate the hands’ look by covering up prominent tendons and veins, restoring a more youthful look. Fat transfer is also thought to improve the quality of the skin on the hands over time.
