What is fat transfer?
Age causes our skin to lose elastin fibers and collagen, resulting in a sagging, dull appearance. When wrinkles and a loss of volume cause you to look older than you feel, it’s time to consider fat transfer as a safe cosmetic solution. Fat transfer differs from implants and is often considered a safer procedure as the body is more apt to accept its own tissue compared to a foreign implant.
The fat transfer process takes fat tissue from an area of your body where you would like to see slimming, like your waist or thighs, and is then used to augment areas that lack volume. The fat is removed through a liposuction process and is properly purified before being injected into the desired area. Some of the most popular fat transfer requests are for the face, breasts, and buttocks. The added volume restores your youthful, invigorated skin and your confidence. Many patients also see an improvement in their skin quality and texture.
A consultation with Dr. Haydon will reveal if a fat transfer procedure will deliver the results you want. The treatment does give a different appearance than implants. Many patients prefer the fat transfer procedure as it delivers a more natural look while creating a slimmer appearance from the area where fat is harvested.
