Fat Transfer can successfully enhance cheeks, chin, lips, face, hands, and buttocks, and can fill furrows, wrinkles, and depressions.
The technique involves removing fat from one part of the body, like the thigh, and injecting it in the same individual in another part of the body. This reduces the risk of an allergic reaction. The donor area is anesthetized using a local anesthesia and the fat is harvested using small syringes. It is then prepared and immediately injected into the treatment area. Excess fat can be frozen for future fat transfer procedures.
Patients usually feel some discomfort during the fat harvesting, and a stinging sensation when the fat is re-injected into the treatment area. Slight swelling and bruising at the site can occur afterwards. Any pain can be controlled with oral medication.
Most patients do need to come in for additional treatments from time – to – time, but most of the transplanted fat will remain permanently, so fewer maintenance treatments are necessary as compared to other treatments.
