Do you have fat in all the wrong areas, while other areas are lacking volume? Sometimes the most obvious solution is the right one – why not take fat from one area and transfer it to another? Read on for more information about fat transfer and why it might be the right procedure for you!
What is the procedure for a fat transfer?
Fat may be “harvested” from many areas of the body, such as the lower stomach, the thighs, or the inner knees. The fat is removed in a procedure much like liposuction, and it is then processed before being reinjected.
What can fat transfer be used for?
Fat transfer is a very popular way to enhance the breasts and improve the contour of the body. It can also be used for facial wrinkles and other areas of the face where you want more volume. It can be used to help hands look younger, reduce the appearance of scars, and it can even help to enhance the lips.
What are the benefits of fat transfer?
One benefit is that you are taking care of two problems at once – any “problem areas” you have can be reduced, toned, and contoured by having fat removed, while your other “problem areas” are plumped up and given more volume.
Another benefit is that you don’t have to worry about an allergic reaction to what is being injected into your body, since it is your own fat! Fat transfers are natural, noninvasive procedures with a low risk of complications, and many women prefer the idea of a fat transfer to breast implants.
After the procedure you may have some swelling, bruising, and discomfort at the site where fat was removed, but this should only last a couple of days. The fat injection site won’t have any scarring at all, and at the liposuction site you will only have a minimal scar.
