Fat Transfer: Palo Alto

The beauty of fat transfer is that it takes fat from areas where you have too much and transfers it to areas that need augmentation. This minimally-invasive procedure uses your own body fat for augmentation to create soft, natural-looking, long-lasting results. At Vistnes Plastic Surgery of Palo Alto, we perform fat transfer procedures in the Bay area with the double benefit of sculpting certain areas of the body while augmenting others.

What Areas Can Be Treated with Fat Transfer?

Fat transfer, also known as fat grafting, can be used to fill in depressions and augment many areas of the body, including the biceps, triceps, calves, or other body area for men or women. This procedure uses gentle liposuction to remove fat from stubborn deposits for purification and injection into areas that need augmentation. In recent years, fat grafting has become an increasingly popular procedure for augmenting the face, breasts, buttocks, and hands.

Facial Fat Transfer

Your own body fat, removed from the abdomen, thighs, or other areas, can be injected into the face to correct a range of facial cosmetic issues. Fat transfer is a flexible treatment for creating a natural-looking, more youthful and aesthetically pleasing facial appearance. It can be used to:

  • Fill in acne scars, skin depressions, and sunken areas
  • Add volume to the cheeks, lips, and jawline
  • Smooth lines and wrinkles on the forehead
  • Minimize nasolabial folds (from the nose to the mouth corners)
  • Reduce the appearance of marionette lines (from the mouth corners along the sides of the chin)

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

This is a popular alternative for women who want to enhance their breasts but are not ready to undergo breast implant surgery. Fat transfer breast augmentation can produce a modest increase in breast size with soft results that look and feel natural.

Buttock Augmentation with Fat Transfer

The Brazilian butt lift is a popular procedure involving fat grafting to augment the buttocks. In addition to creating a perkier, more prominent derriere, this procedure can enhance your curves by sculpting the waist, hips, and surrounding area.

Hand Rejuvenation Fat Grafting

The hands can give away our age when they lose fat volume and the veins and tendons begin to show through. Fat transfer to the hands is an effective procedure to plump up wrinkled skin, cover tendons and blood vessels, and improve skin quality on hands.

What Are the Benefits of Fat Transfer?

Because of its many benefits, natural fat transfer is becoming the “go-to” procedure for body contouring today.

  • Double benefits: Fat transfer can slim one area of the body while enhancing another.
  • Minimally-invasive: Fat grafting achieves dramatic results in a less invasive procedure than implants.
  • Minimal scarring: Liposuction for fat transfer requires only small, well-disguised incisions, so scarring is virtually invisible after the procedure.
  • Long-lasting results: Fat cells removed with liposuction are gone for good from the areas sculpted in a fat transfer procedure. Treatment does not have to be repeated periodically like dermal fillers to maintain results.
  • Customizable treatment: You can choose which areas to sculpt, where the fat should be transferred, and how much augmentation you need to achieve your cosmetic goals. After a one-on-one consultation and careful evaluation of your anatomy, Dr. Vistnes Plastic at Vistnes Plastic Surgery of Palo Alto can individually tailor a fat transfer treatment plan for you.
