Have you ever wished you could just move your unwanted fat from one area and use it to fill out another area? A fat transfer using liposuction is one treatment option for patients who need to add volume to an area of the body. Conveniently located in New York, NY, Dr. Ariel Ostad offers a variety of procedures to rejuvenate the face and body.
A fat grafting procedure involves transferring fat from areas with excess such as the thighs and injecting it into areas such as the face or hands that may be lacking volume. It is a safe, well-tolerated procedure giving natural-looking results. Because this treatment uses a patient’s own fat, the body readily accepts it rather than seeing a foreign substance. This means there is little chance of an allergic reaction and more patients are qualified. Results can last up to three years which is significantly longer than dermal fillers.
Patients with the following concerns may consider fat transfer procedures:
Qualified candidates have an area of excess fat to use as a donor site. The patient must also have good circulation. During the procedure, fat is harvested, purified, and then reinjected into the areas needing augmentation. The steps may have to be repeated as necessary to get the desired look.
