When to Consider Fat Transfer

When to Consider Fat Transfer

Some types of fat transfer, like the Brazilian butt lift, are relatively new. But fat transfer actually dates all the way back to the late 1800s. In other words, we’ve been using the process of moving fat from one area of the body to another for centuries.

In the 1990s, fat transfer gained popularity, and plastic surgeons have spent recent decades fine-tuning this option. 

This means fat transfer is a tried-and-true way to improve your appearance. And Suresh Gupta, MD, and our team offer it right here at our PureMD MedSpa locations in Beavercreek, Liberty Township, Miamisburg, and Dayton, Ohio. 

Is this an option you should consider? To help you find out, let’s take a moment to better understand fat transfers and what they can accomplish.

Fat transfer 101

As its name suggests, fat transfer involves removing fat from one part of your body and relocating it to another area. Dr. Gupta takes the fat from an area you don’t want it — like your thighs or abdomen — using liposuction. Then, our team processes the fat to purify it. At that point, it’s ready to be injected wherever it can do the most good. 

Some common applications include the:

In short, wherever you could benefit from a bit more volume, fat transfer can deliver. 

What fat transfer can do

Because fat transfer can be used on virtually any part of your body, it can do a lot for you. Our patients at PureMD MedSpa often choose it to:

With a fat transfer, you can get a volume boost like you might expect with dermal fillers for your face or breast implants, but you do so using your body’s own fat. 

And because these fat cells are already a part of your system, it increases the likelihood of the fat surviving long-term once relocated. Assuming the transferred fat is able to establish a new blood supply, the results from your fat transfer can be permanent. 

Ultimately, the longevity of your results hinge on a variety of factors, from your metabolism to the quality of the purification process and the skill of the practitioner placing the fat in its new location. Our extremely experienced team is available to talk with you about what to expect.
