What Is A Fat Transfer?

Because of significant weight loss or aging, patients may lose shape and fullness in certain parts of the body and face. To help restore volume loss, Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang offers fat transfer. This process removes fat from a section on the body and transfers it into another area that needs more volume. We can perform fat transfers on the breasts, buttocks, lower eyelids, cheeks, or lips. Usually, autologous fat transfers work well for patients who prefer a natural treatment versus an implant or a dermal filler. At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Tampa, FL, Dr. Mang has an artistic perspective and precise technique, which creates natural-looking and beautiful results.

Is A Fat Transfer Right For You?

A fat transfer is a great option for patients who:

  • Want to smooth the complexion and reduce wrinkles
  • Enhance the contour of the face
  • Add volume to the lips, cheeks, or temples
  • Improve the shape of the buttocks or breasts

Often, patients who prefer a natural method for increased volume like this treatment. This way, there is little chance for rejection. Before undergoing this surgery, patients should be at a healthy weight and have enough fat to extract for the transfer.

Surgical Technique

At the beginning of your procedure, we will administer anesthesia to help you stay comfortable. The type of sedation or numbing medication depends on certain factors, including the amount of fat we remove and the transfer location. Next, we perform liposuction with a thin, special cannula to precisely extract the fat. This helps us harvest and purify the fat inside a centrifuge. After preparing the treatment area, the healthy fat tissue is injected into the specific part of the face or body. We will repeat the injections until reaching your desired cosmetic goals. Depending on the size of your treatment area, you may require multiple injections.

What to Expect

Following this procedure, you will require some recovery time. Please remember that you will have at least two sites that require healing – the liposuctioned area and the injection site. Your recovery time depends on the size of your treatment area. For example, a lip fat transfer requires a 1 – 2 day recovery period. However, if we transfer fat to the butt or breasts, your recovery can take much longer. At first, the treatment areas will appear swollen and red, but you can see your results almost immediately. Additionally, the liposuctioned area will look slimmer. Fat grafting produces beautiful and lasting results, but over time, you will have some fat that reabsorbs back into the body. For some patients, they may require another fat transfer treatment in the future. You will have minimal scarring associated with a fat transfer treatment.

Take the Natural Approach

If you desire fuller lips or you want to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, fat transfer may be a great option. A fat transfer can also help patients who want shapelier breasts and buttocks. During your consultation, Dr. Mang will create a detailed treatment plan that outlines your cosmetic goals, the fees, and treatment costs. Once he does this, we can discuss the billing and if any financing is available. This treatment can help you attain your desired cosmetic goals without undergoing major surgery or enduring a long recovery time. At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Tampa, FL, we invite you to call and schedule an appointment.
