Seattle Fat Transfer for the Breasts, Buttocks, & Face
Less isn’t always more, and many patients are looking for ways to add volume to the areas that need it most. For those who would like to improve the size or shape of their breasts or buttocks or restore lost volume to the face, fat transfer may be a good option. Fat transfer procedures move unwanted fat from common trouble spots, such as the abdomen, hips, and thighs, to more desirable locations including the breasts, buttocks, and face.
How Does Fat Transfer Work?
A fat transfer is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require traditional incisions or fillers using foreign materials. It uses your own fat as a volumizing agent to enhance parts of the body that appear sunken due to aging or that you would like to increase the size of. Popular treatment areas include the breasts, buttocks, and several different facial areas. Fat grafting is particularly effective at plumping the areas around the eyes, along the cheeks, and at the jawline.
To begin the procedure, Dr. Sobel will remove a small amount of fat from locations such as the hips, thighs, or abdomen using liposuction. It’s important to note that fat transfers do not have the same results as a full liposuction procedure, and the fat removal process will not result in significant body contouring.
Once enough fat has been harvested, it is thoroughly purified and transferred to the desired location using blunt cannulas. These tiny hollow tubes have a small hole at each end to allow for the precise placement of fat cells. The fat is injected as tiny droplets into the desired area, creating a fuller, more voluminous look.
Fat grafting is a hand-harvesting method that requires advanced knowledge of all areas of the body. Proper purification is essential, and Dr. Sobel has the best equipment available to ensure safe and effective fat transfers. He has a proven track record of fat transfer success and can help you add volume to your face, breasts, or buttocks.
Fat Transfer for Fuller Lips
For those who wish to correct natural or age-related lip thinning to achieve full, shapely lips, fat grafting offers a long-lasting lip enhancement option. Your own fat is an ideal filler for your lips as it naturally replenishes what is missing without injecting foreign materials into your body.
Because a small portion of the grafted fat is reabsorbed by the body after injection, this technique produces a soft, natural look that lasts—making it an excellent option for patients who are looking for subtle but noticeable improvement in lip size and shape.
Facial Fat Transfers
Fat transfers are one of the most effective ways to add volume to the face. As your face ages, it loses fullness, which can highlight wrinkles, cause your features to look fallen, and give you a hollow appearance.
Fat grafting can restore lost volume to areas such as the eyes, cheeks, and jawline by transferring unwanted fat to the places that need it most. As an added bonus, some patients report a more radiant appearance and improvement in skin texture and tone after a fat transfer. Fat grafting prompts the skin to become fuller and more youthful without introducing foreign substances into the face.
The procedure is minimally invasive and does not require facial incisions or scarring, making it a popular option for patients who want an alternative to surgery.
Fat Transfers For Fuller Breasts
A fat transfer can subtly increase your breast size for natural yet noticeable results. Additionally, Dr. Sobel can enhance your breast augmentation results with fat grafting to hide rippling or implant visibility and create a more natural breast contour.
Fat transfers are also a good solution for women who want to correct mild asymmetry or slight unevenness in the breasts. Dr. Sobel will evaluate your current breast size and body type to help you determine if a fat transfer is the best choice for you.
Fat Transfers For Better Behinds
