A liposuction with fat transfer gives you the best of two worlds: you can remove fat from a problem area like your thighs or tummy, then use the same fat to diminish wrinkles in your face, augment breasts, or get a Brazilian Butt Lift. Contact Strax Rejuvenation in Lauderhill, Florida, to learn about the benefits of a liposuction with fat transfer and to determine if this procedure will meet your cosmetic needs.
Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure used to contour your body by removing localized pockets of fat. Using a small incision, a narrow tube is carefully inserted into the targeted area of fat. The tube is used to loosen fat cells, and then gently suction fat out of your body.
Following a liposuction, your own body fat can be transferred to another part of your body, where it rejuvenates areas that have either lost volume or adds fullness to areas that benefit from a little extra. In other words, a liposuction with fat transfer is when you remove fat from a problem area and use the same fat to improve another area.
Liposuction removes limited areas of fat anywhere in the body. It’s often used to contour the waist, tummy, thighs, buttocks, hips, upper arms, chin, and neck. Once the fat has been removed, it’s commonly used to treat:
Face: The transferred fat is injected the same way as a dermal filler, where it can diminish frown lines and other wrinkles, or help lift your cheeks.
Breast augmentation: A fat transfer can be used to give you fuller, shapelier breasts.
Hands: Fat injected into hands adds volume lost due to aging and diminishes the appearance of veins and tendons.
Brazilian Butt Lift: One of the best-known fat transfers is the Brazilian Butt Lift, which uses fat harvested from problem areas and injects it into your buttocks to improve your curves and lift the butt.
Recovery time varies depending on the extent and location of both the liposuction and the fat transfer. For example, a procedure like a Brazilian Butt Lift will take longer to heal than a fat injection to diminish facial wrinkles. You should expect some swelling, pain, and redness no matter what part of the body is treated, but even with a Brazilian Butt Lift, you should be ready for normal activities within 3-4 weeks.
If you’re close to your weight goal but have some excess fat, you may be a good candidate for liposuction. And if you want a fat transfer, you’ll need to have some excess fat on your body — fat can’t be harvested if you don’t have any to spare.
