Wouldn’t it be great to wake up tomorrow and have the perfect body? Unfortunately, we can’t always do that on our own. Every single person, even the most attractive supermodel, has something about their body they don’t like. For many people, the thing that they don’t like is that they have excess fat where they don’t want it, and they don’t have enough fat in areas where they would like it to be. If this describes your situation, fat transfer could be the answer for you.
Why Consider Fat Transfer?
Many people have excess fat in their love handles, but they wish they would have a little bit more fat in their hands, their breasts or their face. Did you know that with the help of a talented plastic surgeon, you can transfer the fat from one area to another? Doctors are able to use surgical procedures to take fat from one area in which it isn’t wanted and transfer it to an area that could use more, leaving you with natural-looking results.
Am I a Good Candidate?
The idea sounds pretty good, right? You may be wondering if you’re a good candidate for the procedure. First and foremost, a good candidate for a fat transfer procedure needs to be in good health. They should also be within a healthy weight range with an area of substantial fat that can be used as a donor site.
As with any medical procedure, you will be happiest with your results if you have realistic expectations. You also need to understand what a fat transfer can accomplish. This is something we will discuss with you in more detail when you come in for your initial consultation.
A fat transfer procedure is good for patients who want to rejuvenate or increase the size of areas such as the breasts, buttocks, hands and face. If you have lost facial volume or developed wrinkles in your face that you want to treat, fat transfer might help. If you’re looking to add volume to a part of your body and you want a more permanent solution than what you would get with dermal fillers, this procedure may be a good option for you. Maybe you want your buttocks to be a little bit rounder, or maybe you’ve noticed that your hands are looking bonier than you would look. Any of these situations can be remedied with a fat transfer procedure.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
Results will vary depending on exactly where you receive your fat transfer, but in general, the goal is to make treated areas fuller, softer and rounder while simultaneously contouring the parts of the body that were used as donor sites.
