Benefits of Fat Transfer and Grafting
- Posted on: Dec 15 2022
As the effects of aging begin to change our appearance, it can become more challenging to get and maintain the shape and youthful appearance you want. As aesthetic treatments and procedures are perfected, and advancements are made, many options may help.
With so many options available, deciding which might be best for you and your aesthetic goals can be overwhelming. Along with dermal fillers and other injectables, fat transfer or grafting can be a tremendous and potentially permanent option.
Unlike collagen and hyaluronic acid, fat transfer procedures use a naturally occurring compound found in your body. Not only does this reduce the risk of complications or issues during the procedure, but it also provides an enhancement that is more readily accepted by your body and provides great and desired results.
In a procedure generally performed in the office setting, your surgeon will remove excess body fat from specific areas of your body and inject it into others where you are looking for more volume or structure.
Generally, liposuction is used to remove the fat cells from the targeted areas. If the fat is used elsewhere in the body, this can occur during the same procedure, minimizing time in the office or under anesthesia and reducing recovery times needed to see the same results.
Not only can fat transfer procedures help remove stubborn body fat and help contour those areas, the added volume in other sunken or sagging areas such as the lips and buttocks. Since the fat is from your body, it can be shaped and contoured in any desired shape with minimal chance of rejection.
If you have stubborn body fat that does not go away with a healthy diet or exercise and are considering enhancing the volume and shape of other areas of your body, contact Dr. Shridarani and the team at Luxurger in New York City, NY, to see if fat transfer might be the best option for you.
