What is a Fat Transfer?

You're Not Stuck With It—Move it!

A fat transfer, also called fat grafting or fat injection, is a great way to add volume to different parts of the body without using artificial fillers or implants. During a fat transfer, gentle liposuction is used to remove fat from areas of the body that have too much fat, like the outer thighs, inner thighs, hips, lower back, and lower abdomen. The place where the fat comes from is called the donor site. After the fat is taken from the donor site, it is moved to other parts of the body that might look better with more volume. Usually, this is your face, breasts, or buttocks. Without using artificial fillers, fat injections are a great way to naturally add volume and enhance your overall appearance.

What are the Benefits of a Fat Transfer?

Contour & Reshape Your Physique

Instead of using plastics or gels made from chemicals, fat is moved from one part of your body to another. This means there is less chance of getting an infection, and your body won't reject the augmentation as a foreign substance. It will also make the part of your body that gets the fat look much more natural. The natural effects also mean there is minimal downtime, so you'll be able to get back to your daily activities. Even though it takes about six months to see the full effects, once the new fat has settled, the effects of your fat transfer last longer than any other injectable.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Fat Transfer?

Put Your Extra Fat Where You Want It

You should think about a fat transfer treatment if you want to improve contour irregularities or appear younger and restore lost volume. This procedure could be a good choice for you if you want to add volume to a part of your body and want something more permanent than dermal fillers can give you. You might wish your face was a little fuller, or you might have noticed that your hands look older because of a loss of elasticity. In any of these situations, our surgeons can help with fat transfer surgery.

Your Fat Transfer Procedure

Minimally Invasive With Minimal Downtime

Each fat transfer is unique since each individual has various places they wish to enhance. You may also choose to inject fat into many spots. Through liposuction, your fat is taken and then cleansed. After it has been perfected, it is injected and put into place to enhance the desired locations. During your fat transfer consultation with Dr. Yi, the specifics of your treatment will be carefully discussed.

Fat Transfer Recovery & Results

Redefine Your Features

At VIP in The Villages fat transfer procedures don't require incisions except from the liposuction procedure used to harvest the fat. After that, the injection of fat becomes less intrusive. Consequently, people often have a limited time for rehabilitation before resuming their usual activities. Some individuals take around one week off following surgery to rest and recover. Common side effects include bruising, swelling, and soreness, although any discomfort may be controlled with medication and should subside within a few days. Over the course of several months, when the swelling fades, and the transplanted fat settles into the treated locations, the effects of your fat transfer gradually become more apparent within six months of your procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the risks?

There is less risk of your body rejecting your enhancement because it is your fat being injected. You may experience swelling and redness at the injection sites, as well as sensitivity from the donor sites where the fat was extracted by liposuction. However, our surgeons will provide pain medication to keep you comfortable.

How much does it cost?

The cost of your procedure is exclusive to your treatment plan. Many patients decide to add additional procedures during their fat transfer. However, our surgeons will help you determine the best treatment plan for your body. After your consultation, your patient coordinator will go over the cost of your surgery.

Does my insurance cover it?

A fat transfer is not covered by my medical insurance because it is considered a cosmetic procedure.
