About Fat Grafting at Atagi Plastic Surgery & Skin Aesthetics
Also referred to as fat grafting, fat transfer involves transferring unwanted fat from one area of the body to another area where more volume is desired. Using VASER Lipo®, Dr. Tanya Atagi gently removes fat from an area of the body with excess fat, such as the thighs or abdomen, and transfers it to an area of the body needing volume, such as the face or breasts.
There are many benefits to fat transfer. The procedure uses your own body, not foreign materials, so there is no risk for an allergic reaction. Since your fat is a natural substance, it also produces natural-looking results.
Fat transfer has been a trusted technique for decades and is now widely used to enhance many surgical procedures, including facelifts. The most common areas for fat transfer are the breasts (also known as natural breast augmentation), buttocks (also known as a butt augmentation), and face, but this technique can be utilized on any area of the body.
