Fat transfer surgery involves transferring fat from a part of the body that has too much fat to a part of the body that has too little. It is sometimes described as an autologous procedure since the fat used comes from the patient’s own body. It, therefore, has the advantage of not causing any allergic reactions. Fat transfers are most often applied to the face and buttocks.
What Does Fat Transfer Surgery Involve?
Our surgeon will first remove fat from the donor site. In many cases, the doctor will extract fat from the patient’s abdomen. The fat cells are then put in a centrifuge to isolate them from everything else that was extracted during the fat removal procedure. Only fat cells that are in the best condition will be used in the transfer. The surgeon will eventually inject the fat cells into the targeted site.
How Long Do the Effects Last?
When used in the face, fat transfers do tend to last longer than dermal fillers. The patient’s body, however, will eventually absorb and disperse some of the fat injected. As new methods of fat transfer are developed, the results are expected to last longer and longer.
What is a Brazilian Butt Lift?
The Brazilian butt lift is a body sculpting procedure involving a fat transfer. The doctor extracts fat cells from one part of the body and then uses those fat cells to augment the patient’s rear end and make it look perkier. This is an extremely popular procedure, especially in the Miami, FL and surrounding areas.
