What is Fat Transfer?
The fat transfer procedure helps patients in two ways. First, unwanted fat is removed from one area of the body or face. Then, the removed fat (using liposuction) is rinsed with sterile saline to separate the pure fat. The pure fat is then injected back into the desired area of the body or face. For example, you can remove fat from the hips and have it injected in the neck, hands, or cheeks, where volume has been lost.
What are the Benefits of Fat Transfer and Injections?
Because fat transfer and injections use only naturally-occurring substances from the patient’s own body, there is no risk of allergic reaction. Additionally, Dr. Bounds can completely customize the results of your fat transfer procedure based on your own aesthetic goals. Typically, the area receiving the fat transfer will look younger, fuller, and plumper for months. This allows patients to reverse the aging process in a natural, safe way.
Who is a Candidate for Fat Transfers and Injections?
If you are unhappy with areas that have lost volume due to aging, but are hesitant to consider dermal fillers or implants, fat transfers are the innovative solution for you. Fat transfer can enhance contours, achieve a more youthful glow, and get rid of lines and wrinkles.
Dr. Bounds will teach you about the procedure and answer any questions you may have before giving a full evaluation. Dr. Bounds does not believe in pressuring anyone to undergo a procedure and will make sure you will benefit from the procedure and that you have realistic expectations for the outcome before proceeding. Patients always come first at Plastic Surgery of Virginia Beach.
