Many patients that come to the Sadrian Plastic Surgery Center in La Jolla come to us as they know our reputation for achieving very natural, beautiful results and our artistry in body sculpting. If you want to improve your body shape, fat transfer can produce incredible, yet subtle results.
Body fat transfer is a procedure that harvests fat from areas of your body to be used to enhance other areas of the body, including breasts, buttocks, and facial zones that have lost volume. Liposuction removes excess fat from another body area. It could be your thighs, buttocks, stomach or upper arms. It is then transferred to an area for a natural enhancement.
Exercise and maintaining a healthy lifestyle are important ways to keep looking your best. Age and genetics play a role in the speed with which you begin to show the signs of aging skin and tissue. Some people, with the passage of time, lose facial volume, leaving them looking gaunt. Body fat transfer candidates should be in good health and have realistic expectations of what the procedure can do for them.
If you are considering a body fat transfer procedure, it is important to understand that more than one session of fat transfer may be required in order to achieve optimal results. Depending upon the area being treated, you may need several treatments to achieve the look you want.
A body fat transfer uses fat cells from your own body, minimizing the risk of rejection or any allergic reaction. Your body recognizes these cells as part of your – it is exceptionally safe.
Recovery time will depend your natural healing process and the number of areas enhanced. You will need a friend or family member to drive you home and assist you if needed. You may experience some bruising or swelling in the treated areas. Our medical team will provide specific post-procedure instructions, but you it is normal to need to take it easy for up to three weeks after body fat transfer treatments.
