If you want to look your best, it’s important to consider how your curves and contours complement each other. Your entire appearance works in concert to make you look the way you do. If there are certain areas that you with were better defined or better contoured, there are plenty of options to consider. At our New Orleans plastic surgery practice, we are particularly interested in how we can craft a look that best enhanced your appearance while shaping it just right at the same time.
Enhancement and Contouring All In One
During your consultation at our plastic surgery center serving New Orleans, we will assess your overall appearance and develop the right treatment plan just for you and your needs. Dr. Kamran Khoobehi will use his skills as a surgeon and his eye for aesthetics to determine the best way to meet your needs. In many cases, the best option for both enhancement and sculpting is fat transfer treatment.
About Fat Transfer Treatment
Fat transfer treatment is an ideal way to achieve greater fullness and volume in one part of the body while slimming and shedding fat from another part of the body. Also referred to as microlipoinjection, the treatment will involve the extraction of fat from one area of the body, the purification of that harvested fat, and then the reinjection of that fat into a different part of the body. The extraction process is done using liposuction, which is a safe and effective way to target pockets of fat in specific parts of the body.
Where will the fat be taken from?
The answer to this question will vary from patient to patient depending on his or her needs. In most cases, liposuction is used to extract fat from the abdominal area, the buttocks, the thighs, the hip area, and even the neckline and jowl area.
Applications for Fat Transfer Treatment
In many cases, fat transfer is used predominantly for facial rejuvenation and enhancement, but we are proud to offer fat transfer to the breasts here at our practice. Using safe and precise fat transfer techniques, we can offer the benefits of a breast augmentation without the need for invasive surgery and breast implants.
Candidates for Fat Transfer Treatment
The ideal fat transfer candidates are people in good general health who do not have any sort of medical condition that would prevent them from undergoing surgery. These candidates will usually have an area of the body with some problematic pockets of fat that they’d like removed while also desiring volume enhancement in a different part of the body.
Benefits of Fat Transfer Treatment
One of the biggest New Orleans fat transfer benefits is that the fat is taken from the patient himself or herself. This means that there is no chance for an allergic reaction from a foreign substance. Since the fat transfer is done through injections rather than invasive surgical techniques, there is little downtime or lengthy recuperation required for fat transfer patients.
