Fat Transfer with Dr. Michael Mirzabeigi at Atlanta Plastic Surgery

Fat transfer (or fat grafting, as it is sometimes called) is one of the most useful & effective tools that plastic surgeons have for safely achieving natural-looking results. During this procedure, I remove fat from one part of the body (the “donor site”) via liposuction, purify it, and transfer it to a part of the body where it is more desired (such as the face, buttocks, breasts, scarred areas, etc.). This technique has a variety of cosmetic & reconstructive applications, as well as the added benefit of reducing fat in the donor site while simultaneously improving the appearance of the surgical site.


Frequently Asked Questions About Fat Transfer:

  • While there is some chance of complications involved with surgery of any kind, modern techniques & technology have helped make plastic surgery exceedingly safe. This applies especially to fat transfer. Using the patient’s native biological tissue, as opposed to using artificial implants, virtually eliminates the risk that the body will reject the transferred tissue. This risk is extremely slight with artificial implants, but it’s essentially nonexistent with fat transfer. Furthermore, fat transfer is less invasive than many other types of plastic surgery, though it does involve at least two tiny incisions (one at the donor site, where fat is removed via liposuction, and another at the main surgical site).

If you are interested in fat transfer or any of the procedures I perform, contact me, Dr. Michael Mirzabeigi, to schedule a consultation with me at our Atlanta, Cumming, or Canton location.
