If you are concerned about the signs of aging that are written on your face or you want to enhance areas of your body with more fullness, lipotransfer fat transfer could be the solution for you. This is your opportunity to use fat from your body – removing unwanted, excess fat from one area and transferring it to another area – to restore volume and fill in wrinkles. You can spare yourself the use of chemicals and reduce the risk of infection or a reaction. Lipotransfer fat transfer is a natural alternative that produces results that last.
How Does LipoTransfer Fat Transfer Work?
The lipotransfer fat transfer process begins with liposuction as excess fat is removed from various areas of the body, such as the buttocks, the thighs or the abdomen. The fat is then prepared for transfer. It is thoroughly cleansed. Once purification is complete, the fat will be placed in a syringe and inserted into the area to be treated. The result will be new volume where it is desired and a reduction of fat where it is not wanted. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis. Doctor Grossman will use a local anesthetic to treat the areas of concern. After your procedure, you can expect some bruising and swelling for the first week or two. Most lipotransfer fat transfer procedures can be completed in one session. If you are getting your breasts or buttocks enhanced, you may have several sessions.
What Areas Can be Treated with Lipo Transfer Fat Transfer?
Lipotransfer fat transfer is recommended to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles in the face, smoothing them as they are raised by fat injections. It is also beneficial in filling in hollowed areas of the face that have sunken in over time. Other typical areas that are enhanced through lipotransfer fat transfer include the breasts, buttocks, and hands.
Am I a Candidate for Lipo Transfer Fat Transfer?
Lipotransfer fat transfer is recommended for anyone who is in good, overall health. If you have any underlying conditions, they may present risks during the procedure. Otherwise, lipotransfer fat transfer is ideal if you are looking for a way to enhance your body that is using a product from your body and has enduring results. It should be noted that lipotransfer fat transfer is more time-consuming than other forms of fillers. This is a result of the preparation stage of the fat prior to the transfer.
