What is Fat Transfer?

Fat transfer, also known as fat grafting or fat injection, is a surgical procedure that involves removing fat from one area of the body and transferring it to another area. This technique has gained popularity in recent years due to its ability to enhance and rejuvenate various parts of the body, including the face, breasts, buttocks, and hands.

The procedure begins with the extraction of fat from a donor site, such as the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks, through liposuction. The harvested fat is then carefully processed to remove impurities and excess fluids. Finally, the purified fat is injected into the desired area to add volume, improve contours, and restore a youthful appearance.

Benefits of Fat Transfer

Fat transfer offers several advantages over traditional implants or fillers:

  • Natural results: Since the transferred fat comes from the patient’s own body, it seamlessly integrates with the surrounding tissues, resulting in a more natural and harmonious appearance.
  • Long-lasting effects: Unlike temporary fillers, fat transfer provides long-lasting results as the transferred fat establishes a blood supply and becomes a permanent part of the recipient site.
  • Dual benefit: In addition to enhancing the desired area, fat transfer also allows for body contouring in the donor site, leading to a more sculpted and proportionate figure.
  • Reduced risk of complications: Since fat transfer uses the patient’s own tissue, there is a lower risk of allergic reactions, rejection, or implant-related complications.
