Fat Grafting

"A surgical fat transfer is cosmetic surgery to move fat from one part of the body to another. It's also known as a "fat graft" or "lipomodelling"

A revolutionary breakthrough in the augmentation, fat grafting is an easy, safe and versatile treatment option for the calves, breasts, buttocks, cheeks, chin, biceps, chest [male], depressed scars and burn scars. The process involves taking fat from one part of the patient’s body and injecting it into the area that requires augmentation. Since the treatment involves no foreign substance, there is little to no chance of infection and other risks.

The aim is to remove unwanted fat from an area of the body, such as the tummy or thighs, and use it to smooth or increase the size of another area, such as the breasts or bottom. A surgical fat transfer involving the bottom is often known as a Brazilian butt lift (BBL).

What does it involve?

A surgical fat transfer can be carried out under either general anaesthetic or local anaesthetic.

It involves 3 main stages:

  • removing the fat – small cuts are made in the skin and a thin tube is used to suck out small amounts of fat (similar to liposuction); the cuts are then closed with stitches
  • preparing the fat – special equipment is used to separate the fat collected from any blood and other fluids
  • injecting the fat – small amounts of fat are injected into the area being treated; stitches are not usually needed

Frequently asked questions

Fat transfer, also referred to as autologous fat transfer, fat grafting, or natural augmentation, is a surgical procedure where fat is removed from donor sites on the patient’s body through the use of liposuction. This fat is purified and injected into areas the patient wishes to augment. Fat transfer is a highly customized procedure that can deliver natural, long-lasting results.

The goal of a fat transfer procedure depends on the area of the body receiving the fat transfer. Grafted fat can smooth lines and wrinkles in the skin, fill depressions caused by atrophic scarring or other aesthetic defect, volumizing areas deflated by time, and plumping places that need more projection. 

Generally, patients typically decide to sculpt their midsection and utilize the fat for grafting. Dr. Gunasekar Vuppalapati can perform VASER Liposuction just about anywhere you have undesirable fat deposits. This may include your:

  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Chest
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Knees
  • Buttocks
  • Calves
  • Ankles
  • Back
  • Bra rolls

Fat transfer is an extremely versatile procedure. Smoothing, volumizing, lifting, shaping, and filling can all be accomplished with your own viable fat cells. Results are long-lasting and natural. Fat transfer with VASER Liposuction is safe, effective, quicker, and more comfortable when compared to fat transfer with traditional liposuction

Ideal candidates for fat grafting are healthy adults who are close to their ideal weight. They may experience deflation in their skin over time or would like to enhance the volume in certain areas of their bodies. Fat transfer patients have adequate fat at the donor site(s) to harvest and inject into the desired area(s). They also are optimistic, yet realistic in their expectations of fat grafting and what it can do for them.

After properly caring for the fat graft and closely following Dr. Gunasekar Vuppalapati’s post-operative instructions, you can expect your final results to be long-lasting! Because the transferred fat integrates with its new surroundings, including creating a new blood supply, it will be there to stay. If you lose significant weight after your fat transfer procedure, your results may not endure. It is important to maintain a stable weight after fat grafting in order to keep your amazing results for many years to come.

After your comprehensive surgery, the donor area that underwent VASER Liposuction will be slimmer and smoother. VASER Hi-Def Liposuction will also put your taut musculature on display. The area receiving the fat transfer will be fuller and more voluminous. Plump, wrinkle-free skin will radiate your best look
