Is a Fat Transfer Right For Me?
Fat transfer procedures—known medically as autologous fat transfer—differ from other cosmetic procedures because two different parts of your body must be factored in to the equation:

How Does Fat Transfer Work?
Fat injections—sometimes known as liposculpture—replace lost fullness and volume in the skin—particularly in the face. This loss of volume is caused by sagging skin and the aging process in general. Fat transfer surgery is a different approach to wrinkled and sagging skin because it doesn't pull it tighter; it restores that lost volume.
The fat grafting procedure generally takes under an hour, utilizes local anesthesia and is performed as an outpatient procedure. During the procedure:
- Fat is withdrawn, typically from the abdomen or neck utilizing a small tube known as a cannula
- Using a special technique, this fat is washed and cleaned
- Utilizing a unique, safe tool, this fat is injected into the transfer site
Fat transfer is generally considered a minor cosmetic procedure and as such, features very little recovery time. Some swelling or bruising is to be expected, and will subside in a short amount of time. The results of fat transfer surgery vary, but many people notice an increased fullness and youthful look in a matter of days.
