The use of fat transfer for volume improvement The team of the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads is here to provide a selection of cosmetic solutions for men and women. Patients who have a trouble area with excess fat, and another with volume loss, may find that the fat transfer procedure is most appropriate for their needs.

What is fat transfer?

The doctors of Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads of Virginia describe the fat transfer process as a way of removing fat from a trouble spot on the body (typically the abdomen, hips, and thighs) and inject the fat into the face to add necessary volume. Injection spots on the face that benefit from fat transfers include the cheeks and lips. Depressions and wrinkles on the face can also be injected with fat cells to smooth the skin and provide a more youthful appearance without surgical interventions.

Why choose fat transfer injections?

Our practice is pleased to provide a variety of injectable treatments for our patients to consider. However, patients with more severe volume loss, or those who have an area of the body that needs fat reduction, may find that the fat transfer process is highly beneficial. Patients love the idea of having liposuction performed on one area of the body to improve volume in another. This transfer process is completely safe and effective as the fat cells are harvested from the patient’s own body, reducing the risk of any allergic reactions. Fat transfers also provide longer-lasting results than any injectable on the market, making it the most advantageous treatment for adult men and women. The choice of fat transfers is easy, as well as affordable, for those who are considering volume restoration in the face.
