What are Fat Transfer Injections?

Designed for the dual purpose of thinning out one area of the body and augmenting another, fat transfer can be used on multiple areas of the body such as the:

  • Face
  • Hands
  • Breasts
  • Buttocks

During the fat transfer process, the patient’s own body fat is harvested through a simple extraction process using a small incision and a liposuction cannula. Prior to treatment, Dr. Singhal will help you determine which area is best for removing excess fat. The fat is then cleaned and purified for safety, then injected into the volume-deficient area.

What are the Benefits of Fat Transfer Injections?

In addition to simultaneously thinning and augmenting different areas of the body, fat transfer injections have multiple advantages to the patient, such as:

  • Safe. As your body already recognizes its own tissues, the transfer of fat cells is less likely to result in rejection or adverse reactions.
  • Natural. Unlike synthetic augmentation materials, fat cells are natural, long-lasting and create predictable results.
  • Comfortable. Fat transfer injections are less invasive than other augmentation and rejuvenation procedures, and the procedure is typically well-tolerated by most patients.
  • Versatile. From reducing the appearance of scars on the face to augmenting the breasts, fat transfer injections have any uses for anti-aging and rejuvenation concerns.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Slight bruising, swelling, redness, and other temporary side effects can occur around liposuction and injection areas, but typically there are no major side effects experienced after fat transfer injection procedures. Patients may be advised to exercise caution with the areas that have been augmented, as transferred fat may need some time to “take” after the procedure.

While a high percentage of fat typically survives after fat transfer injections, the procedure may need to be repeated in order to achieve desired results. Doctor Singhal is highly skilled in this procedure and will ensure you receive the maximum benefits from your fat transfer injection, but results vary from patient to patient.
