Fat is beautiful. That isn’t a joke; we’re dead serious. That same fat that creates those love handles you hate can refresh and revitalize your appearance. Discover seven of our favorite ways to turn extra fat into a more beautiful you.
Facial Fat Grafting – Get Full, Youthful Cheeks and Skin
Do you love the look of fillers, but hate having to come in for treatment every few months? Use your body fat instead. Facial fat grafting uses fat in place of fillers to volumize the cheeks, augment the lips, and smooth stubborn lines and creases.
Fat grafting lasts longer than fillers. Many of our patients enjoy long-lasting results and do not require retreatment.
Nano Fat – Regenerate Your Facial Appearance
Hidden within your fat are powerful regenerative cells and growth factors. When injected into the skin, these growth factors can stimulate regeneration. We use nano fat to smooth fine lines, to fade skin discoloration and scarring, and to revitalize thin, aging skin. Nano fat is much more processed than micro fat, the type of fat we use in place of facial fillers. We inject nano fat to revitalize the skin, rather than to fill it.
Nano fat treatments require much less fat than a typical fat grafting procedure. We typically only need one to two syringes of fat. Nano fat is heavily emulsified, processed, and filtered. Injection requires only a small, fine needle. This procedure is much less invasive than typical fat grafting techniques and is a non-surgical procedure with limited downtime.
Using your body’s cells for regenerative aesthetics isn’t a new idea. PRP treatments rely on this same principle, but instead of fat, we use platelet-rich plasma, concentrated and extracted from your blood.
Brazilian Butt Lift – Create Enviable Backside Curves
Kim Kardashian is famous for her backside. If you’re jealous of her curves or hope for fuller buttocks that are less extreme, a Brazilian butt lift may offer the volume you’re seeking. We use your extra fat to volumize and shape the buttocks.
Extraction is an essential part of any fat grafting treatment, but in a Brazilian butt lift, removing fat has the benefit of enhancing your results, too. We often extract from the waist, abdomen, lower back, or thighs. This fat reduction helps create a curvy, sexy, hourglass silhouette.
Fat Grafting to Breasts – Boost Your Breasts a Little or a Lot
Breast tissue is primarily fat. If you desire fuller breasts, we can use some of your extra fat to enhance their shape and increase their size. Breast augmentation using fat grafting is an alternative to traditional breast augmentation using implants. Pairing fat grafting with implants can provide additional coverage over the implant or to improve shape.
Fat Grafting to Hands – Hide Veins and Smooth Creases
The hands are one of the first areas of the body to show significant aging. There’s a simple solution to those prominent veins and that crepey, thinning skin: extra fat. We use fat grafting to rejuvenate the hands and restore a more youthful appearance.
Revision Liposuction – Restore Smooth Contours
Inexperienced or unskilled liposuction providers may remove more fat than necessary or fat from the wrong places. Patients may find themselves with sunken contours or unwanted depressions in the skin. The solution to liposuction complaints is often fat.
We can use your excess fat to restore smooth and natural-looking contours during revision liposuction. Often, patients opt to combine fat grafting and liposuction to shape and contour problem areas. Repositioning your fat may improve the outcomes of your previous body contouring treatments.
Breast Reconstruction – Feel Confident After Cancer
Breast cancer will forever affect your breasts, but extra fat could be the key to restoring an appearance you’re confident in. For patients with a small dent or bump in the breast area (common after a lumpectomy or surgical biopsy), we use a technique called lipofilling, in which we fill in the depression and restore the breasts’ appearance. Fat is a useful tool for breast reconstruction when full reconstruction isn’t necessary.
