What are Fat Transfers and Injections?

Fat transfers and injections – sometimes referred to as fat grafting – is a cosmetic body and face sculpting procedure that takes existing fat from your body, purifies it and then delivers it back into areas of your body that may be lacking in volume. Common areas to receive fat injections are the face, hands, breasts, buttocks or thighs. This procedure is a popular alternative to other filler treatments because it uses harvested fat from your body to give you a more natural, voluminous appearance.

What are the Benefits of Fat Transfers and Injections?

If you have facial areas that appear sunken and hollow or are wrinkled and loose, a fat transfer can help give your face a plump, smooth appearance. Also, if you wish to enhance the shapeliness of your hips or thighs, you can harvest skin from your belly and transfer it to the desired areas. The results are often a curvaceous, defined silhouette. Good candidates include non-smokers who are in good health and have enough available fat to be harvested.

What is the Procedure for Fat Transfers and Injections?

The fat from your donor sites is removed through liposuction techniques and then run through a filtration system that separates it from other fluids. Once separated from any impurities, the fat is injected back into the areas being augmented. Fat transfers and injections are great for those who wish to enhance the contours of their face and body without the use of injectables like Botox®. This helps to reduce the risk of allergic reactions to foreign substances and lasts longer than the alternative.

What is the Cost of Fat Transfers and Injections?
