Why Consider Body Fat Transfer?
Imagine being able to transfer your own fat from stubborn problem areas, such as the hips, back, abdomen, and thighs, to areas such as the breasts, derriere, neck, or face to naturally augment fullness and volume in those areas! Body fat transfer treatments provide the opportunity to do just that, via a medical process called microlipoinjection whereby your own fat is transferred, via injection, to other areas of the body.
What is the Goal of Body Fat Transfer Treatments?
Body fat transfer treatments extract fatty tissue from stubborn problem areas in your body and transfer it to flattened or deflated areas where volume and fullness are lacking. These treatments can achieve significant cosmetic improvements while being far less invasive and costly than plastic surgery. At Mang Plastic Surgery, our goal is to help patients look and feel more confident and beautiful.
What Are the Benefits of Body Fat Transfer?
With body fat transfer treatments, both sites benefit from the treatment: the harvest site where excess fat is removed, as well as the target site where additional fat is added. Plus, since it is your own body fat, there is very little risk of any adverse reaction. Body fat transfer is performed as an outpatient procedure and is minimally invasive. The procedure requires no downtime or recovery period and you can resume normal daily activities immediately after.
How is Body Fat Transfer Performed?
You will be given a sedative and/or local anesthesia to eliminate any possibility of discomfort during the procedure. The procedure basically involves two steps. First, liposuction is used to extract fat cells from the harvest site, which typically includes such areas as the abdomen, back, buttocks, hips, or thighs, where you may have extra pockets of fat that you’d like to eliminate. Once these harvested fat cells are liquefied and processed, they may be directly injected into the target area using an extremely fine-gauge needle. Target areas may include such sites as the breasts, neck, buttocks, and cheekbones, where a little extra fat can enhance and rejuvenate your appearance. In some cases, the body may absorb more fat than expected, and minor follow-up treatments may be required in order to accomplish your aesthetic goal.
Who Should Consider Body Fat Transfer?
Body fat transfer treatments may be suitable for almost any healthy adult who wants to get rid of some excess fat from some areas while adding it to others. Body fat transfer treatments may be used to tone and enhance facial and body contours in younger as well as older patients.
Is there any Risk of Complications with Body Fat Transfer?
While all cosmetic procedures carry some risk, the risk of adverse reaction with body fat transfer treatments is minimal because the procedure uses fat cells harvested from your own body, so it’s very easy for your body to integrate this fatty tissue once injected. Normal reactions to the procedure may include soreness, redness, swelling, or minor discomfort, but these symptoms may be managed easily with over-the-counter pain medication, and typically subside naturally within a couple of days.
