Fat transfer procedures have revolutionized the cosmetic surgery industry in recent years. While cosmetic surgeons have used fat transfer for over a hundred years to correct major scars and disfigurements, usually from wartime injuries, fat grafting has continued to see advancements as fat harvesting saw improvements. Today, fat grafting, liposuction, and subsequent transfer have become among the most popular body contouring procedures.
Firstly, like the original uses of the procedure, facial fat transfer can fill in facial hollows, correct acne scarring, and address other facial scarring. Normally, the fat is injected through a small cannula. This can rejuvenate the face for a younger appearance and for reconstructive purposes.
As liposuction saw advancements, fat transfer procedures did also. Fat transfer to the breasts and Brazilian butt lifts are among two of the most popular procedures. During these procedures, Dr. Jonov harvests fat from one site of the body, often the abdomen or thighs. Then, he transfers it via injection into the butt or breasts.
Fat can also be used as a filler, adding volume to targeted areas. Sometimes fat harvesting can happen on a smaller scale to fill in the tear troughs, augment the lips, or as cheek filler. There are many options for your fat transfer in Bellevue.
