What is Fat Transfer?
Fat transfer, also known as fat grafting or fat injection, is a procedure that entails the transfer of fat from areas of your body where you have excess fat, such as the outer thighs, into areas of the body that have less volume, such as your face. This is a long-lasting, safe, well-tolerated process that produces natural-looking results.
Benefits of Fat Transfer
Fat transfer results are natural, long-lasting, and safe. Fat grafting is a noninvasive process for realizing facial rejuvenation. The body does not reject the fat because it is your own natural tissue.
How is Fat Transfer Performed?
In the course of the fat grafting process, fat is reaped from the donor part by inserting a cannula and suctioning out the tissue. This is done with anesthesia to reduce any possible uneasiness and discomfort.
The reaped fat is then cleansed so that only the fat cells are grafted. Once the fat is set, it is injected into the targeted area through a cannula until the preferred look is attained. Because of the different process involved, the time taken for the treatment can vary depending on each patient’s individual procedure.
Preparing for Your Fat Transfer Procedure
Our doctors will take you thorough pre-operative instruction and may ask questions. You be ready to answer them and should be able to give a detailed medical history. Afterward, you will take a physical test exam to determine your fitness for this procedure. Our doctor may take pre-procedure photographs.
Fat Transfer Recovery
You may experience slight bruising and swelling after the fat transfer process, but you can minimize it by icing the area periodically. We will give you precise aftercare instructions on taking care of yourself. Fat transfers typically last longer than other volumizing treatments, so you should have long-term results.
How Much Does a Fat Transfer Procedure Cost?
The cost of fat transfer will depend on the amount of work done and the results the patient is seeking. Cost will vary on the person and the time involved. We will be happy to discuss financing specifics during your initial consultation.
