About Fat Transfer
This is a procedure which removes surplus fat cells from one area of the body and then re-implants it where needed. Fat transfer is also called free fat grafting, autologous fat transfer/transplantation, liposculpture, volume restoration, micro-lipo injection and fat injections.
The main advantage of fat transfer is that the fat comes from your own body, so you cannot develop an allergic reaction unlike other external implant substances that are introduced into the body. Your body naturally accepts the injected fat. When combined with liposuction, the transfer can be very cost effective, especially if used for larger volume replacements for sunken cheeks and gaunt facial areas. The possibilities vary. If you have areas that you wish to augment, discuss this with Dr. Sikorski to find out what may or may not be a viable choice.
Fat transfer fills facial features with your own fat instead of an injected filler or an implant. The fat used for fat transfer is extracted from part of your body like the abdomen or thighs – generally during liposuction – and injected into another area that requires plumping.
