Fat transfer, also known as fat injection, uses liposuction to take fat from one part of the body and then inject it into another area of the body for added volume. Excess fat is removed from an area of the body, such as the abdomen, jowls, thighs or buttocks and then cleansed so that fat cells are isolated. Next, the fat is injected into the areas of the body that need volume. Fat transfer can be more beneficial over other body contouring alternatives because the fat cells come from the patient’s own body and there is no risk of allergic reaction. The most common areas for fat transfer include the face and buttocks.
Fat Transfers for Buttock Augmentation at Atlanta Plastic Surgery, P.C.
Another common area where fat transfer is used is buttock augmentation, also called the Brazilian Butt Lift. During this procedure, excess fat is removed from the thighs, abdomen, or back, and is then transplanted into the buttocks for a fuller, more rounded look. Fat transfer for the buttocks is often preferred over buttock implants because results feel more natural and the risk of post-operative complications is significantly decreased.
