Fat transfer is very much what it sounds like. It is a cosmetic procedure that involves moving fat from one area of your body to another as a way to sculpt your body and create the silhouette you want. Venice Beach Surgical Center is the expert in the procedure and can help you get your body looking just the way you want it to. Before choosing a fat transfer treatment, it is a good idea to understand how it works so that you can make the right decision for your body.
How is Fat Transfer Done?
The basic reason for fat transfer is to remove fat from an area on your body where there is excess and use it to round out an area that may be lacking. For example, fat may be removed from the thighs and moved to the breasts to fill them out and make them larger, while also toning and slimming your legs. The buttocks and face are other areas that may lack volume and can be plumped up using fat from other parts of your body. The procedure is done by removing the fat, cleaning it, and then using special needles to inject it into the desired area. Fat transfer is done using a local numbing agent.
Who is a Good Candidate?
A good candidate for fat transfer is someone who doesn’t have circulation problems and who doesn’t smoke. Beyond that, you must have enough fat in certain areas of your body that can be harvested for transfer. Good candidates must also be in good general health and are advised to have realistic expectations for the results of the procedure. We can help you decide if fat transfer is right for you.
When Fat Transfer is a Good Idea
There are many reasons to consider a fat transfer procedure and it can be used to solve quite a few cosmetic flaws that you might want to get rid of. It’s a great way to fill out lines and creases on your face and is a more permanent solution when compared to other fillers. It can also be used to fill scars and depressions on your body, as well as being a viable solution for adding volume to your breasts, lips, and hands.
Benefits of Fat Transfer
There are many reasons why choosing fat transfer is a good choice. Because it uses fat removed from your own body, you won’t have to worry about rejections, allergic reactions or other complications like you might with traditional fillers. A fat transfer is a long-lasting treatment that won’t need to be repeated but looks natural at the same time. It’s a great choice for rejuvenating parts of your body that are lacking in volume and need a boost. Finally, the procedure can boost self-esteem and make you feel better about the way your body looks.
