What are Fat Transfers?
Fat transfer is a cosmetic procedure that improves the fullness of various features with a patient’s own fat. Fat transfer is a popular alternative to treatments for restoring volume, and can also be used to correct skin deformities such as deep furrows, facial wrinkles and other depressions on other body areas. Patients who have lipoatrophy, a condition characterized by the loss of the layer of fat in the face that forms the contours of the cheeks and jawline can also benefit from a fat transfer.
Fat transfer can also be referred to as micro-lipo injection of autologous fat transplantation.
What are the benefits of Fat Transfers?
Autologous fat transfer offers several major benefits.
The main benefit of fat transfer is that the procedure allows patients to use their own tissues to achieve their desired look.
The material used is not from animals or synthetic products. You don’t have to worry about allergic or rejection reaction because the transplantation is from your own body.
The fat can be used to correct scars and depressions; it is also an excellent complement to facial resurfacing treatments and breast reconstruction surgery.
