What is Fat Transfer?
As one of the most experienced plastic surgeons in the Atlanta area, Dr. Lawrence understands each patient requires a unique solution for anti-aging and body contouring. Facial fillers may not appeal to men and women, and these products are not designed to help with every possible problem. To best accommodate the needs of her patients, she offers fat grafting for the face, breasts and buttocks, as well as scar revision.
What Are the Benefits of Fat Transfer?
Fat transfer uses your own fat to add volume to the skin. The technique can be used to treat certain types of scars and wrinkles, as well as to sculpt areas of the body.
Am I a Candidate for Fat Transfer?
The fat grafting process uses your own fat, so there is no need for allergy testing. The primary considerations for the procedure are having adequate donor fat and the nature of the needed correction.
What Should I Expect from Fat Transfer?
Fat grafting involves harvesting fat using liposuction and injecting the fat into the treatment area. For the first part of the procedure, a small incision is made to access the fat layer. A small tube is used to suction out a small amount of fat that is then purified. For the second step, a syringe is filled with the purified fat and used to inject small amounts through the treatment area. This allows our nurse injector to carefully sculpt the area.
