Do you have sunken places on your face you wish you could do change? Your body may already have the solution! Fat transfer is a safe and effective solution to sunken places on your body you wish looked fuller and healthier. At Marina MedSpa in Los Angeles, fat transfer treatments fill out the places on your face and body where you want more volume while simultaneously slimming fat deposits where you don’t want them.
The fat transfer (or “fat transplant”) procedure is a strategy that works by removing excess fat from one area of the body and depositing it in another that’s lacking.
It combines the benefits of liposuction with the enhancement effects of fillers. It’s common for age, disease, genetics, and weight loss to reduce the fullness in desired areas. Instead of using synthetic fillers or implants, transferring fat from one area to the other can reduce the risk of complications and enhance the contours of both the donor and recipient areas of your body.
Fat transfer treatments are safe and effective alternatives to more invasive procedures like implants. While the effects of a fat transfer procedure may not be as dramatic as more aggressive procedures, they tend to be less expensive and require less downtime.
Do you have any concerns with your appearance like these?
In any of these cases, a fat transfer procedure can be an effective solution. When you come in for a consultation at Marina MedSpa, we’ll work with you to craft a treatment plan that specifically addresses your needs and desired results.
Your procedure will begin with your aesthetic professional numbing the donor site to prepare it for liposuction. They then make a small incision and use a suction device to remove excess fat around the area.
Throughout this process, they’ll take great care to ensure an even and balanced look. Once we have harvested your donor fat (quantity depending on the scope of your treatment), it is processed and prepared for transfer. The refined fat is loaded into a syringe and injected into the recipient site. Typically, several injections are made around the targeted area to ensure a natural look.
Recovery in the recipient area is generally quick and relatively painless. You may have some redness and swelling around the injection sites, but this should resolve within a few days. You may also notice a change from the initial appearance, but this is normal as your body heals and grows accustomed to the presence of the transplanted fat.
The donor site may require more care to allow the incision to heal. Some swelling and tenderness are expected, but this should be easily managed with cold compresses or over-the-counter pain medication. After you have recovered, improvement should be readily visible. The treated area should be noticeably fuller and more healthy-looking, while the donor area should look slimmer and more refined. Your results depend on how much of the fat your body accepts in the new location. On average, your body will accept about 80 percent of the fat permanently, and remove the rest naturally.
