Lipo Fat Grafting Harvest

Recycle Your Own Fat!

Ever dreamed of moving extra fat to another area of your body needing some plumping? Well now we can, with a relatively new procedure called “Natural Fat Grafting.” The technique I use basically employs specialized liposuction to remove and harvest unwanted fat in one area, then I artistically inject and sculpt the adipose stem cells into another area after a quick spin, like seen in our photo.

Fat grafting or sometimes called Lipo-fat transfer can be an effective anti-aging alternative without the use of artificial chemical fillers for facial rejuvenation and correcting lip wrinkles or refreshing and plumping lips. When using autologous (your own) fat for increasing or re-shaping breasts and correcting uneven breasts, more than one session is sometimes needed. However, fat injections are particularly helpful to minimize a small divot left from a biopsy or lumpectomy during a single office visit. While natural fat grafting is not the answer for weight loss, it has shown to be safe and effective in targeting localized unwanted fat and offers patients another option in the toolbox of elective cosmetic surgery.

Tummy Tuck Bonus: Fat Grafting

June 11th, 2015

Lipo Fat GraftingFat Grafting has been called a dream come true. Who hasn’t heard someone say they wish that they could suck fat from one area and reposition it someplace else. A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty surgery routinely includes liposuction of excess fat in the abdomen. A new technique allows plastic surgeons to gently remove this fat and prepare it to be injected in other areas. Lipo fat grafting is an effective technique to enhance breast shape/size or to use as a natural filler for lip wrinkles and natural facial rejuvenation, replacing the use of artificial dermal fillers in anti-aging injections. Other common areas for carefully harvesting excess fat during liposuction or liposculpture are the thighs, flanks and hips. This procedure is one of the most exciting cosmetic surgery developments that I’ve seen during my more than 30 years in practice.
