What Is A Fat Transfer?
When a man or woman gains or loses weight or ages, they lose shape and fullness in certain areas on the face and body where volume once resided. A terrific way to restore this lost volume is through an aesthetic procedure known as a fat transfer (or fat grafting). A fat transfer removes fat from one or more areas on the face and/or body and injects it into a specific place that could use additional volume. A fat transfer can be used on large areas, such as the breasts or buttocks, or on delicate and smaller areas, such as the lower eyelid, cheeks, or lips. Fat transfers are commonly chosen when a patient wants a natural enhancement rather than using a device, such as an implant, or a substance, such as a filler. Board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Emeka Umerah is skilled at using the most advanced methods for performing fat transfers. This body and face contouring treatment at Ageless Aesthetics creates gorgeous, soft outcomes.
Fat Transfer Reviews
"I Couldn't Ask for Better. - I have had several procedures done with him or his staff: I had bodytite, tummy tuck, and fat transfer in 1 day. Yes, I had some pain for a few weeks, but I love the results. Everything looks natural and I am healing very nicely. We are doing Fractora for my scars from a breast reduction I had done in 2015 at a different provider. After the 1st session, I noticed an improvement on those scars...."- M. / RealSelf / Sep 27, 2018
"Flat Tummy - I wanted to share this picture of my results from bodytite, tummy tuck, and fat transfer (to my booty!). I love it. The booty looks natural. The healing from the tummy tuck took a few weeks, but it is worth it."- M. / RealSelf / Sep 27, 2018
What Can I Expect from My Fat Transfer?
During your fat transfer, you will be placed under some form of anesthesia to help you remain comfortable. Liposuction is completed first using a special cannula to delicately remove the fat so it can be separated and purified inside a centrifuge, which preps the viable fat for syringes. The healthy fat tissue will be added to the area of concern. The process of injecting is completed in layers until even smoothness has been attained. Your overall recovery will vary based on the size of the areas addressed on the body, and larger areas may require longer healing. As an example, a fat transfer for lip enlargement will typically only require a 1 – 2-day recovery whereas a transfer to a more vast body part, such as the breasts or buttocks, can take many more days. It's important to keep in mind that you'll have two areas of the body healing: the area involving liposuction and the injection sites. These areas will appear red and slightly swollen, but the results can be noticed pretty quickly. This procedure yields awesome and long-lasting results, but there will be some fat that reabsorbs back to the body. There is almost no scarring that is noticeable with this procedure.
