What Is the Fat Transfer Process Like?

Why should you have to rely on a synthetic filler to get smooth, well-proportioned, and youthful-looking skin? When you choose fat transfer, you don’t. Instead, you can use your own fat cells to add volume where you need it most, with the added benefit of removing those cells in areas where you have excess fat. Cosmetic experts have used fat transfer for decades to help patients reach their skin and body goals. 

With fat transfer, Nikunj Patel, MD, FACC, and our team at Neosculpt Laser Vein & Cosmetic Surgery Center can take fat from your problem areas and move it to the places you need or want it. Let’s take a look at this procedure and what it can do for you.

Once you determine where he will gather the fat cells from, it’s time to decide where you want that fat transferred. Dr. Patel can apply the fat transfer to your face or the backs of your hands to fill areas where you’ve lost volume, reversing the signs of aging in the area. 

Alternatively, he can use the fat to give you a Brazilian butt lift or breast augmentation. If you want a more proportional shape, transferring fat from one part of your body to another delivers. 

What to expect during and after fat transfer

Dr. Patel uses the latest technology and techniques to give you a comfortable procedure and minimal downtime afterward. For example, he offers Giggle Lipo for some body areas. This virtually painless type of liposuction comes with a quick recovery period. 

Usually, Dr. Patel performs your fat transfer under local anesthetic. You can go home later that day. In the days that follow, expect some swelling and bruising in the treated areas, but that should fade quickly. Dr. Patel talks with you about when you can return to your normal daily activities based on the areas you decide to treat during your fat transfer.
