Fat Transfer

Fat transfer, also known as fat micrografting, is a cosmetic procedure that addresses common signs of aging in the face and body using fat taken from the patient’s own body. Dermal fillers like Juvéderm and Voluma are becoming increasingly common as a minimally invasive alternative to cosmetic surgery. However, dermal fillers make use of synthetic products to target wrinkles and add volume to the face. Some patients find they would prefer a more natural anti-aging method or they require more volume that would be financially feasible when utilizing fillers.

At Innova Wellness Spa, we proudly offer safe and effective fat transfer procedures. Fat transfer is an exciting alternative to injectable fillers restoring the beauty of your face, hips or breasts with fat grafting, a procedure that uses your body fat as a natural, biocompatible and longer lasting filler. Results are long-lasting, and the procedure runs no risk of inducing allergic reactions or adverse side effects because the fat used is taken directly from the patient.

Candidates for Fat Transfer

Good candidates for fat transfer are patients who are non-smokers, have stubborn pockets of fat, have fine lines and wrinkles they would like to eliminate, are interested in adding volume to particular areas of the body, and are healthy enough for surgery. Because fat transfer requires fat removal via liposuction at the beginning of the procedure, not every patient who is a candidate for dermal fillers is a good candidate for fat transfer. Patients interested in fat transfer will also need to have enough donor fat to provide for an effective procedure.

Common donor sites for fat harvesting include the abdomen, sides, back and thighs. The harvested fat can be used to target a wide variety of cosmetic concerns. This outpatient procedure is designed to minimize wrinkles and fill in parts of your face or body that have lost volume. You may be a good candidate for fat grafting if you have:

  • Decreased facial volume due to diseases such as hemifacial atrophy
  • Small, depressed areas in sections of your body

Unlike dermal fillers, results from the fat transfer will last well into the future. Maintenance appointments are not necessary, and patients can expect to enjoy their new appearance for years to come.
