What is Fat Transfer?

Fat transfer surgery, also known as fat grafting or fat injection, is a procedure that involves transferring fat from one area of the body to another to enhance volume, contour, or rejuvenate specific regions. It begins with the extraction of excess fat through liposuction from areas like the abdomen, thighs, or flanks. This harvested fat is then processed and purified to prepare it for transfer. Once purified, the fat is carefully injected into areas that require augmentation or enhancement, such as the face, breasts, buttocks, or hands. The goal is to add volume, improve contours, or fill in areas that have lost volume due to aging or other factors. Fat transfer surgery offers a natural option for enhancing various body regions using the patient’s own fat, often resulting in more long-lasting and natural-looking results.

How Does Fat Transfer Work?

Fat transfer surgery involves a multi-step process beginning with the extraction of excess fat from areas with surplus fat deposits, such as the abdomen, thighs, or flanks, through a gentle liposuction technique. Once collected, the harvested fat is purified to isolate healthy fat cells and remove impurities or fluids, preparing it for re-injection. Dr. Samir Hasan carefully injects the purified fat into targeted areas needing augmentation or enhancement, such as the face, buttocks, breasts, or hands. These injections are strategically placed to add volume, contour, or rejuvenate specific regions, utilizing the patient’s own fat to achieve natural-looking results. Over time, the transferred fat integrates with the surrounding tissue, providing lasting enhancement and improved contours in the treated areas.

Benefits of Fat Transfer

Natural-Looking Results

Fat transfer utilizes the patient’s own fat, harvested from their body through liposuction. This leads to natural-looking enhancements without the use of synthetic materials or implants.

Versatility in Enhancement

Fat transfer can be applied to various body areas. It’s used for facial rejuvenation, breast augmentation, buttock enhancement (Brazilian Butt Lift), hand rejuvenation, and even for contouring irregularities in other body regions.

Dual Benefit of Contouring

Besides providing enhancement to specific areas, the liposuction used for fat harvesting allows for contouring and sculpting other body regions, leading to a more proportionate and refined silhouette.

Long-Term Results

Once the transferred fat establishes a blood supply and integrates into the body, it tends to be a permanent part of the recipient area, providing enduring enhancements.

Minimally Invasive Procedure

Fat transfer involves small incisions for both fat harvesting and injections. This results in minimal scarring, quicker recovery times, and reduced risk compared to some surgical procedures.

Customizable and Tailored Enhancement

The procedure is highly customizable. Dr. Samir Hasan at BeautyBlade Plastic Surgery works closely with patients to understand their aesthetic goals, allowing for personalized approaches to achieve desired enhancements.
