Cosmetic body contouring procedures usually involve either the removal of unwanted fat and skin or the implantation of artificial devices or materials that are meant to replicate a natural body feature. These body procedures are quite safe and effective, which is why we offer them.
However, the science of cosmetic surgery is constantly advancing, and plastic surgeons have discovered that your body’s natural stores of fat can be put to use in achieving your cosmetic goals.
At Aspira Plastic Surgery, we often perform fat transfers as part of a cosmetic procedure. Our Austin and Round Rock-area patients appreciate the subtler, more natural results associated with fat transfers.
If you live in or around the Round Rock, Austin or Lakeway, Texas areas and you want to learn more about how fat transfers can improve a body contouring procedure, please call Aspira Plastic Surgery today at (512) 686-0012 or contact us online for a free consultation.
What Can Fat Transfers Achieve?
A fat transfer is, at its heart, a fairly simple idea- we take some unwanted fat from a too-prominent part of your body, then inject it in another part of your body that you wish to augment or supplement.
Fat transfers offer a number of advantages, including:
- Decreased risk of rejection or a negative reaction, since it involves your natural fat deposits
- The ability to augment areas of the body that aren’t ideal fits for artificial implants
- Subtle, natural-looking results
Not everyone is a perfect candidate for fat transfers, but most patients have some unwanted fat deposits they’re anxious to be rid of. We can utilize these deposits in a safe and effective body contouring procedure.
Each patient’s results will vary, but Dr. Erella can usually use fat transfers to:
- Add some final contouring and shaping to a breast reconstruction
- Plump and augment your lips or cheeks
- Augment a number of different areas of the body
As you can see, fat transfers have a number of possible uses. Most patients are able to return to work within a few days of undergoing a body contouring procedure that involves fat transfer.
