What Is Fat Transfer Injection?

Fat transfer is a non-invasive procedure that uses a needle to transfer fat from one area of your body to another. Commonly, fat can be taken from the hips, the thighs, or the belly to be used elsewhere. Fat transfer is an incredibly versatile procedure that utilizes your own body to create enhanced features, including:

  • Increased cheekbone height
  • An hourglass body shape
  • Reduction of wrinkles, particularly in the face
  • A more voluptuous butt
  • Breast reconstruction
  • Fewer wrinkles on hands
  • Reduced and eliminated scarring on the face

It’s important to understand that this is not a treatment intended for weight loss and that you should not expect to lose weight in areas where fat is drawn from. This procedure is designed to restore plumpness and vitality to various areas of the body.

Who Is a Candidate for Fat Transfer Injection?

Ideal candidates for fat transfer injections have been able to maintain a relatively stable body weight for a period of time leading up to the procedure, and they are also generally healthy. Patients who smoke should be willing to stop smoking prior to this treatment. Because of the nature of this process, ideal candidates have enough fat to draw from to transfer to a different area. Ideal candidates are willing to collaborate with us and are open to talking about medical history, concerns, and expectations to make sure this treatment is right for you.

What to Expect During a Fat Transfer Injection Treatment

We’ll go over preparation with you during your consultation so you can be ready to receive your treatment on the appointment day. In general, try to drink plenty of water before the treatment, and also avoid certain medications as instructed, such as aspirin and ibuprofen or other anti-inflammatory substances. 

You’ll receive anesthesia locally to make sure you’re comfortable. In some cases, such as if the area of treatment is larger, you might receive general anesthesia. This will be discussed with a member of our team beforehand. This treatment can vary in time, depending on the area being treated. The fat will be removed from one area of your body, purified, and re-inserted into the target area with the use of a needle. 

Fat Transfer Injection Aftercare

The effects of this treatment are usually permanent, meaning that you can enjoy your results for a very long time. Bruising, swelling, and/or soreness aren’t uncommon in the days following the treatment. Swelling should go down completely after a few weeks. You should plan to take it easy and not engage in strenuous activity for at least one week. Our team will talk with you about how to manage pain or other symptoms, as well as how long you should be restricting movement and exercise.
