Fat Transfer: the Fountain of Youth?

April 19th, 2013

Is fat transfer the Fountain of Youth? Perhaps, because regenerative medicine offers stunning new advances in natural procedures for facial rejuvenation.  As your face ages, fat is lost and often changes position. This change is usually presented as wrinkles and skin sagging. The natural fat transfer technique now allows us to replace facial fat loss.  Simply stated, starting with liposuction, we gently remove your own fat cells from selected areas and then they are carefully transferred to another location.  The regenerative properties of these fat cells are particularly effective, because the fat cells become a natural living part of the tissues where it is placed.  Whether it is filling the hollowness of the lower eyelids or plumping the cheeks, replacing a diminished fatty layer is an effective solution for the aging face.  

This revolutionary technique is not limited to facial rejuvenation. Fat grafting is an outpatient, clinic-based procedure and the quick recovery time is changing many aspects of cosmetic plastic surgery today.  It is an ideal solution for patients preferring  more natural choices for the newest options in cosmetic surgery.

Fat Grafting for Breasts: Natural Augmentation

April 9th, 2013

Patients now have another choice when it comes to breast augmentation. Fat grafting has been proven to be effective in increasing the size of breasts naturally by using the fat transfer grafting technique. The regenerative properties of some fat cells are particularly effective for these new procedures, because the fat cells become a natural living part of the tissues where it is placed. Regenerative medicine is offering exciting changes in the way we practice medicine.

Typical areas considered for liposuction to harvest fat cells include areas of the abdomen, buttocks or flanks.  I am pleased to offer this new natural technique that features liposuction fat for an implant-free choice to my patients considering breast enlargement surgery. I find that women appreciate having a natural alternative for breast enlargement, without the worry of implants.

Fat grafting is an outpatient, clinic-based procedure and the quick recovery is changing many aspects of cosmetic plastic surgery, including breast reconstruction following mastectomy. The revolutionary technique is not limited to cosmetic breast surgery.  There are many reconstruction applications and anti-aging procedures that are available, as well.
