Fat Grafting/Fat Transfer

Fat Grafting/Fat Transfer at Southern California Center for Surgical Arts

Fat grafting, also known as fat transfer, is a cosmetic procedure that involves harvesting fat from one area of the body and transferring it to another to enhance volume and contour. At Southern California Center for Surgical Arts in Los Angeles, we specialize in fat grafting procedures to help patients achieve natural-looking results and enhance their overall appearance. Here’s everything you need to know about fat grafting:

What Is Fat Grafting/Fat Transfer?

Fat grafting, or fat transfer, is a surgical procedure that involves removing excess fat from areas such as the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks through liposuction. The harvested fat is then purified and injected into areas that may lack volume or contour, such as the face, breasts, or buttocks, to achieve a more balanced and youthful appearance. Fat grafting is a versatile procedure that can be used to enhance various areas of the body and is particularly popular for facial rejuvenation and breast augmentation.

Common Concerns Addressed by Fat Grafting

Fat grafting can address a variety of concerns, including but not limited to:

  • Facial volume loss and hollowing
  • Sunken cheeks or temples
  • Thin lips or wrinkles around the mouth
  • Breast asymmetry or augmentation
  • Buttock augmentation or enhancement (Brazilian butt lift)

The Fat Grafting Procedure

During a fat grafting procedure, fat is harvested from the donor site using liposuction techniques. The fat is then processed to remove excess fluids and impurities before being carefully injected into the desired areas using specialized cannulas. The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia with sedation and may require multiple sessions to achieve the desired results. Recovery time varies depending on the extent of the procedure and individual healing factors.

Recovery and Results

Recovery from fat grafting varies depending on the areas treated and the amount of fat transferred. Patients may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort at the donor and recipient sites, which typically subside within a few weeks. Final results become apparent as swelling resolves and the transferred fat settles into its new location, with many patients experiencing long-lasting and natural-looking results.
