Body Fat Transfer in Detroit
Fat transfer used to enhance and sculpt the body is a great way to slim down one area of your body and enhance the other. During a body fat transfer, fat is removed via liposuction from a donor area and processed. Once the fat is processed, it will be injected into an area that the patient would like to shape or enhance.
What to Expect
- Anesthesia – Fat transfer performed on the body is usually done using local anesthesia with IV sedation.
- In/Outpatient – We generally perform fat transfer as an out-patient procedure in our accredited on-site surgery center.
- Recovery – The size of the treatment area will affect the length of time it will take to recover. On average, patients usually need 1 week for a large fat transfer.
Areas to improve by Fat Grafting
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 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 Benefits & Risks
There are two main benefits to the use of fat transfer to the body. The first is the reallocation of fat on the body. This allows the patient to slim down areas such as the flanks or tummy and adds that fat to the buttock. The second benefit is that fat transfer is a safe and longer lasting alternative to synthetic fillers. No surgical procedure is risk-free, and that includes cosmetic surgery like fat transfer surgery. During your consultation with Dr. Sabbagh, he will review the risks so you can make an educated decision.
