Fat Transfer in Charlotte, NC

Autologous fat transfer takes excess fat from one area of the body and places it into an area where more volume is desired. This procedure is also called fat grafting or fat injection. It is a revolutionary technique to restore a youthful appearance to the face or other parts of the body.

During the fat transfer procedure, fat cells are removed with liposuction at a donor site on the body. The fat is then separated from other fluids, such as blood, before being injected into the desired area. Since your own tissue is used, there is no risk of rejection.

Benefits of Fat Transfer

  • Targets many areas of the body, including the thighs, knees, buttocks, stomach, flanks, and face
  • Minimally invasive and uses the same technique as liposuction to harvest, purify, and place the fat cells
  • Natural-looking results
  • Improves self-esteem 
  • Smooths out depressions in the stomach, breast, or face caused by previous plastic surgery or medical procedures
  • No risk of rejection or cross-contamination

Is Fat Transfer Right for Me?

There are many cosmetic procedures that can boost your self-esteem and provide better body contours. Fat transfer, or fat grafting, is safe, minimally invasive, and you can enjoy both long-lasting and natural-looking results. With a fat transfer procedure, you can:

  • Replenish sunken or creased areas on the face
  • Achieve more long-term results than traditional fillers
  • Improve the appearance of scars
  • Rejuvenate depressions on the hands and face
  • When used with breast augmentation, you can fill contouring irregularities for a more balanced look, as well as hide the signs of obvious breast implants

A good candidate for fat transferring is one with adequate donor sites to acquire the fat from, as well as those with no circulation problems. Nonsmokers often have smoother surgical procedures and faster recoveries.

Types of Anesthesia

There are three main choices for anesthesia

The Fat Transfer Procedure

Prior to your surgical visit, you will meet with Dr. Mohamed, our board-certified surgeon. Together, you will discuss your goals, determine the right treatment, and select the right type of anesthesia for your procedure.

Simply put, fat is harvested from one area of your body, purified, and injected into another area. For more drastic results, you may need to repeat treatment several times.

First, your surgeon will numb the harvest site with local anesthesia. Dr. Mohamed will collect the fat using a syringe via a small incision. Then, we will process the sample and prepare the fat cells. Once ready, we will inject the fat cells into the targeted area until the desired look is achieved. We will use dressings or bandages as needed once the surgery is complete. The final results are natural-looking, more evenly contoured face and body features.
