There are many ways that you can get your appearance enhanced and improved. Some involve invasive surgery. Others involve special injections that help reduce wrinkles and improve the volume of the face. One option that we are especially proud to offer at our New Orleans plastic surgery center is fat transfer. A fat transfer treatment is safe, effective, and has remarkable results. In fact, fat transfer also last a good amount of time as well.
About Fat Transfer
A fat transfer uses a patient’s own fat in order to increase the volume and enhance the shape of other parts of the body. Fat transfer is often performed on the face, though we also perform fat transfer breast augmentation surgery as well, which is quite effective. When you meet with a skilled plastic surgeon serving New Orleans like Dr. Kamran Khoobehi, he will be able to determine if fat transfer is right for you.
How Fat Transfer is Performed
The first step of a fat transfer treatment is to harvest fat from one part of the body. This is accomplished through liposuction. The liposuction will usually target the abdominal area or the buttocks. The fat that is collected it then purified and then injected carefully into different areas of the body as needed.
Quality Results from Fat Transfer Treatment
Fat transfer can achieve exceptionally good plastic surgery results as you can see from these before and after photos. Not only do patients undergo a slight liposuction, the volume and reshaping of the treatment area is subtle and natural. On top of all that, there is little chance of an adverse reaction to the fat injection since it’s a patient’s own tissue that is used to enhance the volume.
How Long Fat Transfer Results Will Last
When performed properly, fat transfer results can last for years and years. It’s important to go to a plastic surgeon who has a good understanding of fat transfer and how it works. That expertise can mean the difference between a short-term enhancement through fat transfer or long-term volumizing. Some areas of the body will be better for fat transfer than others, and we can discuss those matters in more detail during a visit. If anything, if results diminish, the fat is safely absorbed back into the body without adverse side effects.
Repeat Fat Transfer Treatments
If your fat transfer results begin to diminish, do not fret. One of the fat transfer benefits is that additional treatments can be performed without worry or hassle. That means the possibility of additional body contouring in the future and additional enhancement as well.
