Fat transfer is a cosmetic treatment in which your provider uses advanced procedures and technologies to extract excess fat cells from your abdomen, hips, upper arms, thighs, or other problem areas and injects the fat into your buttocks, breasts, face, or other sites. It enhances contours with minimal downtime.
Fat transfer, particularly a BeautiFill procedure, is an FDA-approved cosmetic treatment that contributes to:
You can achieve the contours you desire naturally, without the need for implants or a risk of allergic reactions.
To find out if you’re a candidate for fat transfer, a Houston Women’s Cosmetics provider reviews your medical history and cosmetic goals. They examine your face and body and let you know what to expect during the procedure. Your aesthetic specialist tailors a treatment plan to your personalized needs to ensure outstanding results.
The first step of fat transfer is harvesting excess fat cells from specific areas of your body. After numbing the treatment site, your provider uses a wand-like device and liposuction to remove fat from your abdomen, thighs, butt, hips, or other problem areas.
Using a syringe, they transfer the fat into areas of your body that lack volume. You can go home the same day as the procedure since you don’t require general anesthesia and downtime afterward is minimal.
After you undergo fat transfer, you notice the results immediately, though you may have some swelling, soreness, and redness at the site of the treatment.
Recovery often requires just 24-48 hours of downtime for smaller areas and up to a week or more of rest for larger treatment areas. If you’ve had fat injected into your buttocks, you need to avoid sitting (you may be able to use a special pillow) until your specialist permits.
