Fat Grafting

Add Volume With Tissue From Your Own Body in the San Francisco Area

Perhaps one of the most exciting plastic surgery advances of the last 10 years has been fat grafting, from refinement of the use of fat to restore volume, augment,or reshape using your own natural tissue. San Francisco area residents can find themselves the beneficiaries of these advances.

There are several advantages over implants, including a lack of any foreign objects or material being inserted, smaller scars, no device-related complications, and no need for routine maintenance screenings. There's even the added bonus of slimming down the area targeted for harvesting fat cells.

Autologous (i.e. your own) fat has many unique and attractive properties that make it an ideal tool for achieving remarkable, long-lasting results. Because it comes from your body, fat does not react like foreign bodies, such as implants. In addition, it feels and moves in a soft and natural way. Perhaps most importantly, fat is living tissue, so correctly grafted fat can give long-lasting results with only one treatment.

Fat grafting is performed using specialized fat harvesting instruments in a process similar to liposuction. The fat removed can be used to correct areas of volume loss such as what occurs in the hands or face with aging. Fat grafting can also be used in such procedures as breast augmentation and the Brazilian butt lift to achieve attractive and dramatic changes in shape and contour. The Brazilian butt lift uses a combination of liposculpting and fat transfer to shape the bottom, taking fat from multiple areas of the body, then transferring it using fat grafting to create a round, shapely bottom. Whether you are seeking a subtle augmentation,a more curvaceous shape to your breasts or buttocks, or an eye-catching result that will turn heads, fat grafting may be able to provide the long-lasting result you are looking for.

In short, fat grafting removes fat from unwanted areas and puts it to work for you, giving shape to the places that are lacking.
