What is a Fat Transfer?

tummy-tuckFat transfer involves removing fat cells from one part of a patient’s body to inject in another part of the body or face. Using a patient’s own fat for cosmetic purposes leads to a faster result with fewer complications. As we age, our skin loses elasticity, often times causing a gaunt look that makes us appear older than we are.

Having pioneered the field of “autologous” fat transfer, Dr. William Seare uses is expertise to provide you with your best results. Fat transfer now can essentially be used to transfer fat cells to almost any location. Your own natural, stem cell rich fat can also be used as: fat transfer breasts, fat transfer buttocks (Brazilian Buttocks Lift ((BBL)), fat transfer face, fat transfer calves, and fat transfer ankles. Occasionally it is used to help the appearance of a crooked nose (fat rhinoplasty), for poorly performed lipo defects, fat transfer acne scars, and fat transfer forehead, face, and necklines. It is much more cost effective, permanent, and natural in appearance, to under a fat transfer procedure because it exactly matches the tissues any treatment area.

A fat transfer procedure can restore volume and fullness, creating a more youthful silhouette. It is an excellent alternative for people who desire to appear younger without temporary injectables and/or fillers.

How is Fat Transfer Performed?

A careful examination and planning are required to perform fat transfer for our patients. Dr. Seare must use a thin cannula to suction fat from areas such as the thighs to inject in new areas such as the breasts.

Liposuction and fat transfer require small incisions. Specialized skill is required for the minimally invasive procedure which provides very long lasting results to without maintenance. It takes experience to transfer fat correctly into the face or body to achieve a natural appearance with few scars, and that’s why you don’t want to trust just anyone with your body.
