Have you ever looked in a mirror and wished you could move excess fat from your stomach and then move it to another area like your buttocks? A fat transfer is an exciting procedure that can make this idea a reality. Dustin C. Derrick, MD is the lead plastic surgeon at Cosmetic Surgery of DFW for Mommy Makeovers and fat transfers. We offer fat transfer procedures that Fort Worth, TX residents can rely on for a more balanced body.
How Does a Fat Transfer Work?
During a fat transfer, you and our doctor will identify areas where you would like to remove fat. Fat is most commonly removed from the stomach area, but it can be removed from other parts of the body as well. This is done using liposuction. Then, the fat is processed and injected into areas of the body where you would like more volume.
Why Choose a Fat Transfer?
There are many benefits to getting this procedure. It’s an easy way to tone up areas that you are unhappy with by removing fat that’s difficult to burn off on your own. You can then add fat to areas like the buttocks to create a naturally full look without getting implants. Fat can be added to the face, buttocks and other areas. The extra fat helps your skin look more supple and youthful. The experience is very straightforward, and the recovery time is much faster than many other cosmetic surgery procedures. This is generally a permanent treatment – once the fat cells have been moved, they can live in your body healthily, retaining the full appearance that you desire for a long time.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Since a fat transfer is a relatively quick and easy procedure, side effects are minor. Before the procedure, we will walk you through what to expect to ensure you have the best possible experience and realistic expectations regarding the procedure, recovery and results. Before getting a fat transfer, it’s important to thoroughly discuss the decision with our doctor so that you’re on the same page about the results you expect.
In the past, the only way to enhance your body or remove fat was through liposuction and implants. Now, with fat transfer procedures, you can get the sculpted, balanced body you are looking for with a much less invovled procedure.
