Imagine a cosmetic procedure that will create a slimmer, smoother look in one area of the body, while plumping and firming other areas. You will be getting double the effects—smooth and contouring, as well as pluming and firming. Fat transfer can do just that!
Many people think that fat taken away during a liposuction or body sculpting procedure should be completely eliminated and destroyed. However, with fat transfer, this excess fat is as good as gold!
What is the Fat Transfer Procedure?
The fat transfer procedure is a safe and simple procedure that takes fat from areas such as the thighs or abdomen using advanced liposuction techniques that use small needles and light suction so as not to damage the fat cells. During this part of the procedure, these areas will be smoothed and contoured. The fat that is removed from these areas is then treated and re-injected into areas that have lost fat volume. Fat transfer can be used for facial rejuvenation, natural breast augmentation, hand augmentation and buttock augmentation—areas that can lose their youthful appearance due to lost fat and sagging skin.
The New Stem Cell Enhanced Fat Transfer Procedure
While the fat transfer procedure has be around for several years, there is a new procedure—stem cell fat transfer—that actually increases the effectiveness of the procedure.
The stem cells used in this procedure are not embryonic stem cells; they are actually regenerative cells containing natural fat and are called super fat cells. These cells will enhance the fat transfer procedure by increasing the blood supply to the treatment area. There are many added benefits to the stem cell enhanced fat transfer procedure including:
• Rejuvenated and tightened skin due to the growth factors generated by these super cells
• Anti-inflammatory agents are released by the cells, leading to quicker healing
• These cells grow new blood that will nourish the injected fat
The fat transfer procedure is completely non-invasive and usually requires only a local anesthesia. Recovery time is also minimal, allowing patients to return to their normal activities almost immediately. Additionally, because the fat transfer uses your own cells, there is no risk of any type of allergic reaction that may be possible when using artificial injectable fillers.
