Fat Grafting commonly referred to as fat transfer or fat injections, has become very popular. Fat grafting is a minimally-invasive procedure that removes fat from common problem areas like the abdomen or thighs and transfers it to other areas that benefit from augmentation, such as the buttocks or face. For many men and women in New York City, fat grafting is a highly effective, modern body contouring procedure to restore or enhance fullness. This treatment can also be used to revise unsatisfactory liposuction results performed by other surgeons.
Fat grafting Procedure
I use suction-assisted liposuction (SAL), on a low setting to gentle and effectively remove fat while keeping the fat cells undamaged. I have excellent success with a high survival rate, ensuring the highest quality fat for transfer. After removing the fat, I purify and inject it into the desired location using tiny cannulas at multiple anatomic levels. Plumping up the skin at varied levels achieves the best results for contour and fat survival. While technique is critical, it is also important for the surgeon to have the eyes and hands of a sculptor to achieve the most beautiful results.
Fat Grafting Candidates
- Ample fat in unwanted areas and moderate skin elasticity
- Mothers are excellent candidates for this procedure
- To combine with procedures like facelift or eyelid surgery to maximize rejuvenation of their aging face
Fat Grafting Recovery
Patients may return to work within 1 to 2 days but will may have some soreness. The swelling that is visible typically accentuates the final long-term result but is still attractive. Most patients experience minimal bruising.
