Sometimes you lose volume on your breasts, face, buttocks, and hands while other areas of your body are retaining unwanted fat. Diet and exercise aren’t always enough to restore volume or lose excess fat. Farris Plastic Surgery in Dallas-Fort Worth can help restore your body’s contours with a fat transfer procedure.
What is a Fat Transfer Procedure?
A fat transfer procedure uses the same practices as liposuction. Unwanted fat is removed using a cannula. The removed fat is processed and purified before being transferred to small syringes. The needles or cannulas inject the fat into the areas with volume deficiency in small amounts until the desired volume level is achieved. Best of all, your liposuction scars are minuscule and easy to hide.
You can go home after the procedure, and post-procedure pain is minimal. You may have some swelling and bruising around the injection site, but it typically lasts only one or two weeks. If the fat adds volume to your face, makeup often covers the temporary bruises.
After three weeks, you can resume all of your regular activities, including strenuous exercise.
Are You a Good Candidate for a Fat Transfer Procedure?
Women and men with volume-deficient areas are often good candidates for a fat transfer procedure. The procedure can modestly increase breast size, but it is not the same as a breast augmentation procedure. You probably are not going to go up several cup sizes, instead, a fat transfer will lift sagging breasts.
Other ideal candidates include individuals who want to smooth wrinkles and cover protruding veins and tendons on their hands.
