What Is a Fat Transfer?
As a part of the aging process, it’s common to lose volume in several regions of your body such as the face, breast or buttocks. Often, this loss of volume can leave you looking older than you feel. Fortunately, Dr. Feldmar can perform a fat transfer procedure to restore lost volume and reverse the signs of aging.
Whether you are looking to restore a youthful appearance or simply plump up an area of your body that has lost volume, the fat transfer also known as fat grafting or fat injection can deliver beautiful, natural-looking results. Fat transfer can be done to the buttocks, face, hands, and more.
How Does Fat Transfer Work?
Fat transfer is a safe, simple procedure that provides you with a natural solution to address volume loss. During your procedure, Dr. Feldmar will perform liposuction to remove fat from a donor area on your bodies, such as the buttocks or abdomen. This fat will then be injected into the area you would like to improve. Since your own natural fat cells are used, there is no risk of an allergic reaction.
Dr. Feldmar can perform a fat transfer procedure to treat a variety of areas on your body, including your:
This procedure is very effective at improving the appearance of:
- Hollow cheeks
- Deep smile and frown lines
- Thin lips
- Skin depressions
- Contour irregularities
- Botched prior liposuction
- Aging hands
- Fat transfer can also be used to correct complications from a previous liposuction procedure. Dr. Feldmar can transfer fat back to the liposuction treatment site to improve the appearance of this area.
