Fat transfer is a versatile volume enhancement technique that has revolutionized the cosmetic world. It can be used to fight facial aging, increase breast volume, and much more. Despite the many benefits of fat transfer, questions are always asked about the effectiveness of the technique. So how effective are fat transfer procedures?
Fat Transfer Procedures
Fat transfer or fat grafting involves removing fat from an area of the body where there is excess, such as the abdomen and thighs, and transferring it to another area to improve volume. Liposuction is used to extract the fat from the donor area. Fat transfer is appealing because it is minimally invasive, and provides natural-looking results.
How Effective Are Fat Transfer Procedures?
The effectiveness of fat transfer procedures is influenced by the expertise of the plastic surgeon, the surgical technique used, and the amount of fat injected. Also, the fat must be harvested using a gentle liposuction technique and handled carefully, to increase the chance of survival.
Getting fat transfer results that are balanced and aesthetically appealing depends on the amount of fat that survives in the targeted area. However, even an experienced provider using the right technique cannot guarantee the amount of fat that will survive, because some of the transferred fat will be absorbed by the body.
Nevertheless, fat transfer is a reasonable solution for patients wanting to enhance their breasts without implants. It can also be used to restore youthful facial contours and fill in wrinkles and fine lines.
