What's the Purpose of a Fat Transfer?

For decades, people have been using synthetic fillers to add volume to strategic locations on their face and body. They get dermal fillers to replace the volume they lose in their face as they age, or use other fillers to get a more proportionate chest or backside. 

But your body may already have just what you need to add volume wherever you want it most. With fat transfer, Nikunj Patel, MD, FACC, and our team at Neosculpt Laser Vein & Cosmetic Surgery Center can take fat from your body and inject or graft it into any areas where you want more volume. If you’re curious about what fat transfer could do for you, don’t hesitate to visit us at our office in Abilene, Texas.
