Wrinkles. Crow’s feet. Small breasts. Flat rear. As we get older, these signs of aging can annoy us and undermine our self-confidence. That’s why many men and women choose to have plastic surgery to correct some of these issues and make them look years younger.
One way you can correct the above aging signs is with fat transfer. Also known as fat grafting or fat injection, this procedure takes fat from places where you have too much – such as the thighs – and injects it into body parts without enough volume. Some examples include the hands, face, breasts, and rear.
Fat transfer is a safe and long-lasting cosmetic surgery procedure that can reverse some signs of aging, and it looks completely natural. Every year, thousands of Americans undergo fat transfer and are thrilled with the outcome. The next one could be you!
In this procedure, fat is taken from one body part – purified and washed – then reinjected with small needs into areas you want to enhance. Fat transfer may be needed several times to achieve ideal results.
This guide offers vital information about fat transfer, what it involves, outcomes, and much more.
Many people choose a fat transfer to change their appearance in a natural way. The fat’s from your body so that it won’t be rejected, and the complications are usually minimal. Some of the reasons people opt for fat transfer include:
You can achieve impressive results with fat transfer in these parts of the body:
Do you have irritating facial creases? We’re talking about smile lines, laugh lines, crow’s feet, etc. Fat can be sucked out of your thighs and belly and injected into these problem areas. Also, fat can be injected into acne scars and hollow parts of the face, cheeks, and lips.
Your surgeon also can use fat transfer to reduce the lines between the mouth and nose and eliminate those forehead wrinkles.
Want a modest increase in breast size? Fat transfer could be for you. But your chest should already have a good shape and tone for fat transfer alone to work its wonders.
If you have drooping breasts, lax skin, or want a larger bust size, you will need to look at other options. Your surgeon can only safely remove so much fat from other body parts.

If you need more shapely and/or larger breasts, silicone or saline breast implants are the best option. Then your plastic surgeon can use fat transfer to fill in any irregularities or wrinkles in the chest.
Do you have defects in the breasts after cancer? Then fat grafting can be the ideal way to minimize those issues. Fat transfer also can be the solution for breast reconstruction after a mastectomy.
But to get ideal breast volume, you’ll usually need to have several fat transfer procedures.

If you’re looking for a fuller rear, a ‘Brazilian butt lift’ can be the solution. This procedure usually uses fat transfer to provide a fuller, rounded shape without using implants. Liposuction may be used to sculpt the area and collect the fat to inject into the buttocks.

Fat transfer into the hands can add volume and plump up areas with wrinkles. It also may cover blood vessels and tendons and enhance skin quality.
