Am I a good candidate?
If you have some areas of your body where more volume is required to achieve better contours, fat grafting procedures can be a great way to go. They are often required for the augmentation of hands, face, butt, breasts and many other body areas. You will of course need to have areas where fat can be harvested before the transfer. But that is not to say that if you are skinny can’t benefit from fat grafting. Dr. Bloch can harvest the fat from your thighs and transfer them to the areas you need them. Cannulas with up to 12 holes are useful in safely harvesting fats from skinny people. A good candidate for fat transfers should be in good health with no blood circulation problems or medical conditions that can impair healing.
- Autologous fat (from your own body), as opposed to dermal fillers, replaces “like with like,” reducing the chance of allergic reactions to foreign substances.
- Fat transfer results are natural, long lasting and safe.
- Fat transfer is a noninvasive method for achieving facial rejuvenation.
- It is time consuming to prepare fat tissue before transferring it, compared to dermal fillers, which are prepackaged.
- Though longer lasting than dermal fillers, fat transfer costs more.
- For augmentation, you may require multiple sessions to achieve your desired breast or buttock size.
Fat is harvested from one part of your body, washed and purified, and then carefully reinjected with specially designed needles into the areas that need augmentation. It may be necessary to repeat the fat grafting procedure several times to achieve the desired result. Fat grafting can be explained as a three-stage process: (1) harvesting (2) purification and transfer and (3) placement.
