A natural solution to restore body volume and shape, the fat transplant is a minimally invasive procedure which uses the person’s own fat to increase the volume of body parts that need it. It is also used to rejuvenate certain areas of the body.

The whole process starts by getting a liposuction (a small one) in the areas where you have excess fat that can be used, which are usually the thighs, the abdomen or the buttocks. The extracted fat is then put into a centrifuge where it gets “purified”, meaning that the healthy cells are separated from the damaged ones. Then, the fat is injected into the part of the body that needs an increase in volume using minimally-invasive techniques (a needle). The fat transplant can be used for breast augmentation, buttock augmentation, face skin tightening and fat restoration, and fat restoration and skin tightening in hands.

The technique is considered to be safer than having fillers or implants done, as it uses organic, biological materials from the patient’s own body, which minimizes the risks of rejection by the body. Also, the results are longer-lasting with fat transplant than with implants and fillers for all parts of the body. 

Who can get the fat transplant treatment?

  • People who have facial areas that appear creased or sunken
  • People who desire a more permanent solution than temporary fillers
  • People who wish to have a medium breast augmentation
  • People who wish to fill in contour irregularities or hide signs of breast implants
  • People who wish to improve their body contour, fill skin depressions, and rejuvenate hands and face

Cost

The cost for fat transplant can vary depending on multiple factors, like the part of the body that needs a fat transplant, the amount of fat that needs to be processed, the number of transfers that are needed, etc. The price can vary from $3,000 to as high as $11,000 in the US and Canada. For those who wish to travel abroad, the costs can be lower as much as 50%, depending on the country of choice. Places like Mexico, Turkey or Thailand, which have high standards for cosmetic procedures and lower costs may be worth looking at in that regard.

Doctors

While the fat transfer technique is not as new as some other techniques, there are not that many esthetic surgeons who are experienced and proficient in this technique. The most important thing to finding a good cosmetic surgeon for fat transplant is for them to be specialized and experienced in this kind of treatment. Look for doctors with both international and national (from the doctor’s country of origin) certifications and accreditations, but be sure to check whether they have done this procedure before or not.
