Putting Weight Where You Want It with Fat Grafting


May 18, 2018

Many women wish they had less fat in one area of their body while simultaneously desiring more fat in another. In the past, fat transfer from one site off the body to another was an implausibility. However, medical advancements have made the impossible a thing of reality.

The Process Behind a Fat Transfer Procedure

Fat transfer procedures, also known as fat grafting, is a form of cosmetic surgery where the fat cells of one area are removed and placed into another. The surgeon performs the procedure in two main phases. During the first phase, fat is harvested from unwanted regions of the body.

During the fat transfer process, fat is taken from the:

  • Abdomen
  • Waist
  • Thighs
  • Love Handles

Once the fat is harvested from the undesired area, our surgeons will then place the fat into the desired region. Fat can be inserted into the receiving area through injection, making incisions and open surgery unnecessary.

Fat grafting is typically used to shape the following body parts:

  • Lips
  • Cheeks
  • Buttocks (Brazilian butt lift)
  • Breast Augmentation (Natural)
  • Hand Rejuvenation

After the procedure, up to 80% of the injected fat stays in the area in which it was implemented. With that being said, if the procedure’s results are unsatisfactory, another round of fat grafting can be performed to ensure that the area receiving the fat maintains the desired look.
