Many of us have jokingly made the comment, “if only I could transfer this fat to another part of my body.” Well, you can! Many plastic surgeons like Dr. Mark A. Bishara have performed many liposuction with fat transfer procedures. The procedure is safe and provides natural looking results.
Who should consider a fat transfer?
According to smartbeautyguide.com, people who consider getting a fat transfer are patients who have facial areas that appear creased or sunken, people that want more permanent correction than what fillers provide, and people that would like to do body contouring and breast reconstruction. The most popular fat transfer procedure performed is the buttock augmentation because more and more people want to have a rounder and fuller buttock.
How to know if you are a good candidate
The first step for this procedure would be to schedule a consultation with Dr. Mark A. Bishara. During your consultation, you and Dr. Bishara will talk about what your goals are and he will evaluate and provide you with different options. Paragon Plastic Surgery & Med Spa will use different machines, such as the Vectra, which is a 3D imaging device that helps give you an understanding as to what your results will look like after the procedure.
How its done…
The fat being transferred is taken from areas such as the outer thighs, abdomen and flanks. Once marking the area, the fat will be taken from the area on your body using a cannula. Once the fat has been extracted, it goes through the purification process where the fat cells are transferred into small syringes. The next step will be the preparation of the area where the fat will be transferred. Using a needle or a cannula, Dr. Mark A. Bishara will then begin inserting the fatty tissues. The same process is repeated until the desired shape has been achieved.
After the procedure
After the procedure, swelling and bruising are common during the first week. On week 2, you will still have some swelling but bruising should start going away. Following the third week, you will notice that everything will start look normal. Instructions about drains and other symptoms will be reviewed with you after the procedure and written instructions will be provided as well. Following recovery, you may notice tiny scars that will fade with time but sometimes they are not visible.
