Fat Transfer, Fat Grafting in Detroit

What to Expect

  • Anesthesia – Usually local with IV sedation
  • In / Outpatient – Generally out-patient in our accredited on-site surgery center
  • Recovery – The amount of fat transferred and occupation may cause the length of time to vary. Usually 1 week for the largest transfers.

This procedure will remove a patient’s own fat to re-implant it where needed. It is typically extracted from the abdomen, thighs, or flanks, and injected into the areas requiring improvement.

When used as a facial filler, fat grafting can improve the creased and sunken areas of the face, and add fullness to the lips and cheeks. Fat grafting is also commonly used in buttock augmentation (Brazilian Butt Lift) to create a more curvaceous shaped buttocks.

Dr. William Sabbagh, is the ultimate professional. I have trusted him on several occasions and I have never been disappointed. I will and have referred him to many friends and relatives. I would never consider another doctor for plastic surgery. He is simply the best.


What Are the Risks

No surgical procedure is risk free, and that includes cosmetic surgery like a fat transfer. Although cosmetic surgery is an elective procedure, patients must understand that these procedures are real surgical operations. They involve the potential for complications like any other surgical procedure, such as infection, bleeding, wound healing and anesthesia complications.  However, most cosmetic surgical procedures are categorized as low risk when performed in an accredited facility, by a board certified plastic surgeon with the appropriate training, qualifications, and experience.  They can be minimized further by patient education and following the surgeon’s instructions on follow-up care during recovery.
