What is Fat Transfer to Body?
The fat transfer to body treatment is a cosmetic technique that involves removing fat from one area of the body and injecting it elsewhere to enhance the figure. This is a popular treatment because it offers two simultaneous benefits: first, it allows a patient to remove stubborn, unwanted fat from an area of the body. Many patients choose to target the thighs, abdomen or flanks, slimming the overall figure. Second, it allows patients to enhance the figure with natural body fat, producing desirable and long-lasting results. There are many possibilities with the fat transfer technique, although it is most often used to enhance the following areas:
- The buttocks (also known as a Brazilian butt lift)
- The breasts
- The hands
How Much Does Fat Transfer to Body Cost in Mississippi?
The cost of your fat transfer to body treatment is based on the area where fat is harvested, how many injections are required, and whether other treatments are performed in conjunction with this treatment. During your consultation with Dr. Diaz, we will go over the costs associated with your treatment as well as our payment options. We accept cash, checks, and major credit cards, and offer financing through CareCredit.
What is the Fat Transfer to Body Procedure Like?
The first step of the fat transfer procedure is to harvest fat from another area of the body using liposuction. Most often, patients choose to target the thighs, buttocks, back or abdomen. Once the fat is removed, fat cells are separated from the tissue and prepared for injection. Then, using a fine-gauge needle, fat will be re-injected into the targeted areas to produce your desired results. The duration of this process will largely depend on the area being treated and the amount of fat that needs to be transferred.
What is the Fat Transfer to Body Recovery Like?
Following a fat transfer to the body, you may return to work or a normal routine within a few days; however, it is important to avoid strenuous activities for a couple of weeks. Side effects may include bruising, swelling and discomfort, and will be present in both the location where fat was harvested, and the location where fat was injected. You can expect to be fully recovered within a few weeks.
What Can I Expect from my Fat Transfer to Body Results?
The results from your fat transfer will be noticeable immediately, with continued improvements over the next several weeks as any side effects fade. The results of your treatment are long lasting; however, your initial results may not be a clear indication as some fat is absorbed into the body in the weeks following treatment. Within a few months of treatment, you will be able to enjoy the final and permanent results of your fat transfer procedure.
Am I A Good Candidate for the Fat Transfer to Body Procedure?
People who want to simultaneously enhance the figure and augment certain areas of the body may be excellent candidates for fat transfer to body treatments. This is especially true for patients who are looking to maintain natural-looking results by using their own body fat. However, the best way to determine your candidacy for this treatment is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Diaz. During your consultation, he’ll review your eligibility for treatment and make sure that the fat transfer technique is the best option for achieving your cosmetic goals.
