Fat Transfer Enhancement

Natural Beauty Redefined: The Power of Fat Transfer

Book Now

Fat transfer, also known as fat grafting or fat injections, is a popular cosmetic procedure that uses a person’s own body fat to enhance specific areas of the body.

During fat transfer, fat is removed from one part of the body via liposuction, processed, and then injected into another part of the body to add volume and fullness.

At Allure Medical, our expert providers perform fat transfers to naturally augment and contour the breasts, buttocks, face, hands, and other areas.

Fat transfer is an excellent option for patients looking to subtly enhance their curves or restore volume lost due to weight loss or aging. It provides very natural-looking results.

Why Choose Fat Transfer: Benefits and Advantages

Fat transfer offers many benefits over other types of augmentation procedures, including:

  • Completely Natural Results: Because your own body fat is used, the results look and feel entirely natural. There is no risk of allergic reaction or rejection.
  • Minimally Invasive Procedure: Fat transfer is far less invasive than implants. It requires only small injections rather than major surgery.
  • Long-Lasting: Once transferred, the grafted fat becomes a permanent part of the body in most cases. Results can potentially last for years.
  • Safer: Using your own natural fat is safer than foreign materials like silicone or saline implants. There is less risk of capsular contracture and other complications.
  • Customizable: Fat can be precisely injected in small amounts to target specific problem areas and create truly customized, natural-looking results.
  • Medically Beneficial: Fat transfer has applications beyond just cosmetic enhancement. It can also help restore volume to scar tissue, fill out sunken areas after significant weight loss, and improve contour deformities.

Are You a Good Candidate for Fat Transfer?

Good candidates for fat transfer include:

  • Those in overall good health without any illnesses that impair healing
  • People with adequate stores of excess body fat that can be safely removed. Common donor sites include the thighs, flanks, stomach, back, and neck area.
  • Patients with modest goals who want subtle improvements in breast or buttock size/shape
  • Those looking to restore lost volume due to weight fluctuations, pregnancy, or the natural aging process
  • Patients wanting to smooth out cellulite or contour irregularities
  • Healthy non-smokers free from chronic conditions like diabetes or autoimmune disorders
  • Women who want a modest lift or enhancement without implants
  • Anyone with realistic expectations of the moderate improvements possible through fat grafting

Fat transfer may not be recommended for those with inadequate fat storage, patients seeking significant increases in cup size, or those unable to undergo general anesthesia.

Your Journey to Enhancement: The Allure Medical Way

The fat transfer process involves several steps:

Initial Consultation

During the initial consultation, our providers will evaluate your areas of concern, assess your fat storage, and determine if you are a good candidate. We will discuss your desired results and educate you on what is realistically achievable through fat grafting.

Preparing for Treatment

We will provide instructions on how to prepare for treatment. This includes guidelines on eating, drinking, smoking, medications, and arranging transportation. You will need to have someone drive you home after your procedure.

Liposuction to Harvest Fat

On your treatment day, we’ll start with liposuction in areas rich in fat, like the flanks, thighs, or abdomen, extracting just enough fat for the best results. This step usually takes 1-2 hours.

Using a specialized liposuction system that requires only a small incision, we prepare the fat and then gently transfer it using a device similar to a needle, ensuring a comfortable experience for you.

Fat Processing

The harvested fat is then processed to remove impurities and isolate the adipose stem cells. This helps maximize the viability and longevity of the transferred fat. We use advanced methods for gentle fat processing.

Fat Transfer Injections

Next, the purified fat is carefully injected in precise locations using small cannulas. This is to achieve your desired enhancement based on the pre-determined treatment plan. The doctor may massage the area to evenly distribute the fat. This step takes 1-2 hours.

Recovery Period

After your procedure, you will need to follow all post-procedure instructions closely, including wearing compression garments, resting, avoiding strenuous activity, and attending any follow-up appointments. Recovery typically takes 5-7 days.

Safety First: What to Know Before Your Fat Transfer

While serious complications are very rare when performed by an experienced provider, there are some risks to consider:

  • Infection, bleeding, swelling, bruising at the injection sites
  • Lumpiness, asymmetry, or irregular contours
  • Cysts, abscesses, or fat necrosis
  • Oil cyst formation
  • Blood clots
  • Fat embolism
  • Donor site contour irregularities or loose skin
  • Partial absorption of the transferred fat once injected. Most patients keep 40-80% of the fat graft permanently.

There may be mild bruising, swelling, and tenderness for about a week following treatment. You may need slight overcorrection to allow for some fat absorption.

While unlikely, additional fat transfer procedures may be needed in the future to maintain your results if you experience significant weight fluctuations that impact your enhanced areas.

FAQs about Fat Transfer Enhancement

How long do results last?

With adequate graft retention, results are generally permanent. Transferred fat adopts the characteristics of the surrounding tissue and becomes a natural part of the body.

What is the recovery like?

After a fat transfer procedure, you may have mild bruising, swelling, and discomfort for about 5-7 days. Most patients can go back to light work in a few days and resume exercise after 2 weeks.

How long before I see results?

You will see some improvement right away. However, final results become evident over 2-3 months as swelling resolves and the transferred fat integrates with the surrounding tissue.

Will the fat transfer process be painful?

The procedures involve only minimal discomfort. Local anesthesia is used to maximize comfort. Post-op pain is minor and managed with pain medication for a few days.

Will fat transfer to the breast affect mammogram results?

The fat may create small scars that show up on a mammogram, but a radiologist can distinguish them from other conditions.

Are there any side effects?

Temporary side effects like bruising, swelling, numbness, and tenderness may occur. These resolve within several weeks. Following our post-op instructions helps reduce risk of complications.

Can I have fat transferred to multiple areas?

Yes, fat can be transferred to multiple areas in the same session, such as the breasts and hands or breasts and buttocks. We will determine the best treatment plan based on your goals and the amount of fat available.

How much does fat transfer enhancement cost?

Pricing depends on the number of areas treated and the amount of fat transferred. During your consultation, we provide a customized quote based on your specific goals. Financing plans are available.
