Fat transfer / fat grafting is a procedure offered by the triple board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Harrison Lee. The purpose of a fat transfer is to take fat from one part of the body and transfer it to another part of the body (such as the face) to restore lost volume.
In the fat transfer procedure, the Dr. Lee uses liposuction to remove fat from the donor site and after processing the fat injects it into the precise areas where volume has been lost. Because your own natural fat is used, fat injections are often preferable to injectable fillers. The results of this procedure can last several years.
“My face looks completely natural. Friends that hadn’t seen me kept remarking that I looked better then I ever have. But they could not figure out why. That was the biggest compliment that they could have given. Cosmetic surgery should always look natural. It shouldn’t change you but rather enhance you. I believe Dr. Lee understands that, and strives for this in his surgeries. He has an incredible talent in all aspects of facial cosmetic surgery. I definitely should know. Every patient I have seen of Dr. Lee’s has been as thrilled with their results as I am.” ~ Google
Fat transfers (fat grafting) involve the removal of small amounts of fat from your own body from unwanted areas (such as the stomach). The fat is cleaned and then reinjected under the skin to smooth out deep lines or wrinkles. Using your own fat overcomes any problem of plausible allergic reactions.
About The Fat Transfer (Fat Grafting) Procedure
Your fat is removed in a way similar to liposuction plastic surgery. The area where the fat is to be removed from is numbed first and then a small puncture incision is made which will not require a stitch or create a scar. The fat is then removed using a fine instrument, cleaned, and then reinjected into the areas of which the patient desires to restore lost volume.
Results are immediate. You can return home immediately, but cannot drive until the next morning.
