Fat Transfer

What is fat transfer?

Fat transfer is a cosmetic procedure that involves removing a patient's excess fat from one place in the body and transferring it to another place where more volume or fullness is desired. Fat transfer is considered an alternative to certain types of implant procedures.

What is fat transfer used for?

Fat transfer can be used to:

  • Restore fullness that has decreased with age
  • Reduce laugh lines
  • Plump hollow areas in the face
  • Restore smooth contours
  • Deliver a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance

How does fat transfer work?

A fat transfer procedure begins with Dr. Soni using liposuction in order to remove excess fat from one area of the body, such as the buttocks, thighs or abdomen. Once removed, this fat will be processed and then injected back into the body in the area(s) where more volume and fullness are desired.

What are the benefits of fat transfer?

Benefits of fat transfer include:

  • No risk of allergic reaction
  • Good alternative to implants
  • Effective on all skin types
  • Long-lasting results
  • Performed as an outpatient procedure
  • Performed under local anesthesia
  • Minimal recovery time
  • Safe and effective

Can fat transfer be combined with other treatments?

Fat transfer can be used in conjunction with other rejuvenating cosmetic procedures, such as dermal fillers or platelet rich plasma (PRP), which can further improve the skin's fullness and texture.
