A fat transfer is a trend that is growing in popularity in the world of plastic surgery. It is a procedure that allows Dr. Steven Dayan to shape your body to fit your vision by using your own fat. You’ll be going with a completely natural filler that is taken from your body. It’s removed through liposuction, goes through a process to make sure it is cleansed of any impurities, and is transferred anywhere that you need more volume. If you have hollows in your cheeks, want plumper lips, or would like to smooth away some of the wrinkles that are etching their way into your face, a fat transfer could help you.
Is a Fat Transfer All it’s Cracked Up to Be?
You need to have an adequate source of fat for this to be an option. If you are slim or so athletic that there is no fat on your body, you’ll need to think about other alternatives to add more volume to your figure. A fat transfer is effective when you need to enhance thinning lips. It can also soften the appearance of fine lines or wrinkles.
How to Find Out if a Fat Transfer is the Best Choice for You
The best way to know if a fat transfer will work for you is to make an appointment with Dr. Dayan. He will listen to what you want to get out of a fat transfer. Your body will be evaluated next to ensure you have a good source of fat. If you have enough fat for the procedure, Dr. Dayan will also want to know that you are healthy enough to have surgery. You will need to share your health history to determine if any underlying conditions could cause complications. As long as you are good to go, you can plan your procedure.
Liposuction only requires a tiny incision in order to suction away the fat for your transfer. The injection process is simple as well. Other than some swelling you can expect your recovery to be brief. You will need to keep your incisions clean. Be prepared for some bruising, swelling, and tenderness where fat was removed. You may also have some tenderness in the injection sites. You’ll love the new fullness you will have where you want it most.
