Fat transfer or Lipoplasty involves the transfer of fat from one part of your body to another in order to remodel or enhance that body section. This can be used for various parts of the body including the face, breasts and hands.
Your body’s fat is a valuable resource. It contains whole fat cells (which store fat), and stem cells. The fat that has been removed by liposuction can be relocated to other parts of your body where age, injury or weight loss has caused a reduction in volume.
When your fat is transferred to another part of your body, it will not be rejected nor will you be allergic to it. In Dr Goldbaum’s experience, the amount of fat that you will retain following such a transfer will vary between 40-80%. Occasionally, a top up may be desired to further improve your shape. Any left over fat that remains after your procedure, can be frozen and stored for later use.
- Fat Transfer, extracts unwanted fat in a similar process to Liposuction.
- Excess fat is suctioned out through a cannula.
- The extracted fat cells are purified and combined with PRP protein rich plasma from your own blood.
- Protein rich plasma and its growth factors aid in rejuvenation, collagen formation, and fat survival.
Where can I transfer fat to and from?
Replace the volume that time ,exercise and rapid weight reduction has removed.
With age there are many effects on the body including sagging, wrinkles and deep lines. These conditions are all reversible with the use of Lipoplasty techniques, which can drastically improve the look of lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. The fat that is transferred will improve the look of your face and restore youth back into your look.
After breast feeding, illness, dieting or just plain aging, breasts can be effected causing them to lose their shape, volume or size. The fat lost from these occurrences can be replaced through Lipoplasty with or without Liposculpture to restore the shape and size of the breasts while keeping a natural look.
These procedures are ideal for women who want to restore their breasts volume while not having to have implants inserted. They will retain natural looking breasts while gaining a firmer, more lifted appearance.
Depressed scars can be released and the depression filled with fat. A great procedure for those with ugly sunken scars.
Lipoplasty can help restore your youthfulness in this area. Please discuss this with our doctor.
