Fat transfers, otherwise know as fat grafting, is a way of moving fat from one part of the body and putting it into another. Doctors have been using this procedure to plump a multitude of body parts for many years. These procedures are popular for the face because as we age we lose the plumpness in our face that creates a youthful appearance. This loss volume leaves our cheek area hollowed and the skin droops to create jowls and under eye bags. A transfer of fat to the face restores the volume and a youthful look. The process of facial fat transfer is minimally invasive and creates both volume and smoothness to the skin for an overall sense of youth. This procedure is very simple and can be combined with our BodyTite and FaceTite procedures.
Updated fat transfer techniques now also fill many body areas including the butt, biceps, breasts, hands in addition to the face.
Fat transfers have traditionally been used to surgically fill in and soften the edges of small, localized areas of the body. They are now becoming more popular than implants for body procedures. A fat transfer involves your own fat cells, harvested from your body, which means that it’s biocompatible and may help eliminate the risk of allergic reaction or rejection. Body fat transfer feels and looks more natural than a body implant.
