LargeFat Transfer, otherwise known as fat grafting or fat injection, is a natural, minimally invasive treatment. Fat transfer is an upcoming trend for those wanting augmentation (breast, buttock) or replacing fat loss due to ageing (face, hand). By moving fat, you can increase the volume of that particular area, smoothing lines/wrinkles, and more.
Scars (including Acne)
The best areas of the body to harvest fat from are the knee, inner & outer thigh and abdomen. The success rate depends on both removals of the grafts and subsequent injections.
This procedure is perfect for making breast or buttocks look fuller and more round. It is also good for those who are older and are losing volume in their face or body. By transferring fat, a surgeon can sculpt a more youthful body or face. Fat transfer has dramatically transformed the confidence and look of many patients.
Fat transfer is a highly complex procedure involving a board-certified surgeon using special equipment to fat graft cells. The complex part of the process involves using only ‘viable’ fat cells that can live in a different part of a patient’s body.
Fat transfer in the breast area is controversial as it can result in calcifications formation and may interfere with mammography in cancer detection.
Only certain parts of the body have shown that they take the transfer the best, areas that are vascularized. Meaning the fat will need its supply of blood to thrive and produce great results. This will require a surgeon who is meticulous and has the all the necessary training.

CONSIDERATIONS OF FAT TRANSFER:
One of the most frequent complaints of fat transfer is the when the fat grafted areas will give an inconsistent or unusual appearance. When choosing a qualified fat transfer surgeon, it’s important to review all the before and after photos with a discriminating eye. A lot of photos can be doctored or altered to give a better result.
Fat grafting is most commonly performed by Plastic Surgeons, as liposuction is a primary component of the procedure. Plastic Surgery residents get comprehensive training in the standards of care for the liposuction procedure and are fluent in managing complications.
