3 Benefits of Fat Transfer Surgery
- Posted on: Jan 30 2023
Dermal fillers and implants have become increasingly popular to fill in sunken areas or enhance specific areas of the face and slow or reverse the signs of aging. Although these are safe and come with minimal risk of severe or adverse reactions, some may prefer a natural material rather than artificial and still achieve their aesthetic goals.
In these cases, fat transfer surgery is a great option to fill in lost volume on your face or enhance other areas, such as your lips. Not only is this a safe and effective way to help you achieve the look you want, but there are also three benefits of fat transfer surgery that may help you decide if it is right for you.
Patients who opt to have fat transfer surgery will have stubborn or unwanted body fat taken or harvested from other areas of the body. This can also help to address particular areas of the body where a more toned or sculpted look is desired.
Since it is your own fat cells that are used as the filler or implant material, there is minimal risk of adverse reaction or rejection of the procedure. Not only are your natural cells used, but the fat is also cleansed and prepared before injection to further reduce the chance of a reaction.
Lastly, fat transfer and grafting surgery results are nearly always permanent for both the harvest location and the implant area. By completely removing the fat from elsewhere on your body, the chances of the cells regrowing like with other treatments are reduced. And unlike other fillers such as hyaluronic acid or collagen, the grafted fat will remain in place and not fade.
