Why We Love Fat Transfer (And You Should, Too!)
April 5, 2016
While fat transfer techniques date back to the late 1800's, it's really only recently that the procedure has become more popular. Though you might hear the procedure referred to by a variety of terms - fat transfer, fat grafting, fat injection - they all refer to the removal of fat cells from an area of the body that contains excess fat, followed by injection into a new area of the body that can benefit from additional volume. The goal is generally to add volume to the recipient area to make it appear fuller or more plump. Fat transfers involve a three-step process that includes extraction of fat via liposuction, processing and preparation of the removed fat, and injection into the new location.
