Fat Transfer Injections

Also known as fat grafting, fat transfer involves removing excess fat from one area of the body and injecting it into an area that lacks volume or fullness. Fat transfer injections are a long-term solution for replenishing or adding volume where it is desired, while reducing fat in an area where it is unwanted. Fat transfer injections provide a very natural result and are generally well-tolerated among our patients. Thanks to the long-lasting and effective ????!!!!! NATURE? of fat transfer injections, this treatment has been steadily gaining popularity with our Marin County patients over the past several years.

Fat Transfer Treatment Areas

Dr. Miguel Delgado M.D. often recommends fat transfer injections to Novato Medical Spa patients as it can add volume to almost any part of the body. It may be used to replace volume that is lost as a part of the natural aging process or augment areas of the body where fullness is desirable. The most popular locations for fat transfer include:

  • Face: Fat transfer can be used to correct smile lines, laugh lines, fine lines around the mouth and eyes, forehead wrinkles, and acne scars. It can also be used to add volume to the lips and cheeks to enhance their shape and fullness.
  • Hands: The aging process causes fat loss in the hands, allowing bones and unsightly veins to become visible beneath the skin. Dr. Delgado uses fat transfer injections to subtly increase volume in the hands and restore a more youthful appearance.
  • Breasts: Fat transfer can be used to subtly increase the size and shape of the breasts. It’s especially popular among women who are unhappy with sagging breasts after childbirth/breastfeeding or after losing a substantial amount of weight.
  • Buttocks: Fat transfer injections can be used to improve the lift and curve of the buttocks. It can also be used to augment the buttocks in men or women who feel their bottoms lack natural volume.

How Fat Transfer Injectors Differ from Dermal Fillers

While fat transfer is used to treat many of the same complaints as other dermal fillers, it is quite different from other injectable treatments. Fat transfers injections contain only fat cells from the patient’s own body, which means there is no risk of rejection or allergic reaction. Many people find that fat transfer provides a more natural result than dermal fillers. In addition, fat transfer can provide results for up to 10 years, while most dermal fillers provide results for less than 2 years. Fat transfer is also unique because it involves the removal of fat from areas where it is undesirable, such as the abdomen or thighs.
