Why Is Fat Transfer Becoming So Popular in the Cosmetic Surgery World?

You have probably seen many, many photos of airbrushed models and celebrities. If you are interested in having some of their beautiful looks, you may be considering cosmetic surgery.

Because of the many women who desire a larger behind, one of the more popular procedures requested is a Brazilian butt lift via fat transfer. Fat transfer is also being used as a more natural alternative to breast implants.

What Is the Fat Transfer Procedure?

As the name implies, a fat transfer procedure entails taking fat from one part of the body and transferring to another. The fat is harvested from a body part that has excess fat. Because of this, the procedure also serves as a contouring procedure — a two-for-one, if you will. The harvest site is smoothed and contoured through the gentle liposuction procedure that removes the fat.

This harvested fat is then processed, with the fat cells being separated and purified. One of the benefits of the fat transfer procedure is the fact that there will be no risk of allergic reaction or rejection, due to the body’s own fat is being used. These purified fat cells are then injected into the buttocks or breasts using small needles or cannulas. The fat is injected at various depths to provide a very natural look and feel.

Other Fat Transfer Procedures

While butt and breast augmentation using fat transfer are the most popular uses for fat transfer, this procedure can also be used for the hands and face. Facial and hand rejuvenations using this technique are very successful due to the fullness and volume that can be restored to these areas. In fact, fat transfer to the facial area is being touted as an “organic facelift.”
