4 Benefits of Fat Transfer to Enhance Your Physique

Not everyone is naturally blessed with an hourglass figure or alluring high cheekbones. Explore the reasons why fat transfer is a stand-out option for cosmetic surgery.

If you’re considering cosmetic procedures and surgeries to alter the way you look, there are considerable options available today. Some are surgical, some aren’t. Another major difference between certain treatments is the use or lack of implants. If you’re considering adding fullness to some area of your body for a more flattering figure, fat transfer is an excellent option. 

Women’s Health Institute in Warner Robins and Macon, Georgia, offers custom fat transfer surgeries to give you the ideal curvaceous physique. Nnaemeka Umerah, MD, and Anayo Umerah, MD, specialize in fat transfer surgeries and can give you results that exceed your expectations. 

While drawing comparisons between fat transfer and cosmetic implant surgeries, the advantages of fat transfer become clear. Here are four advantages that stand out:

1 A natural texture after healing

When you get implants in your buttocks or breasts, you can feel the difference between the texture of the implant and the texture of your natural subdermal fat and tissue. Fat transfer simply moves your own fat cells from one area of your body to another, so the results feel like natural fat because they are natural fat. You might also agree that the results look more natural and less manufactured because of the way the transferred fat sits on your body. 

2 Low risk of allergies and rejection

Some people are allergic to the materials in cosmetic implants and experience dangerous reactions as a result. Similarly, your body might reject an implant simply because it doesn’t naturally belong there. 

Fat transfer options eliminate the risk of an allergic reaction: Your immune system won’t overreact to fat tissue from your own body. And as long as the fat cells come from yourself, the risk of rejection and resulting cell death is low too. 

The main “risk” of fat transfer is fat absorption: Your body may absorb up to 50% of the transferred fat over time causing your results to become less prominent. 

3 Outpatient surgical options

Fat transfer surgery is relatively simple. It first involves the removal of fat from one section of your body like your thighs or abdomen. Those fat cells are then processed to remove any stray or dead cells and other debris. After that, your surgeon strategically injects the cells to augment another area of your face or body for aesthetic enhancement. 

Since fat transfer surgery primarily works with fat cells just under the skin, the procedure isn’t risky or complicated compared to other surgeries. This means you can go home and sleep in your own bed (keeping your postsurgical instructions in mind) without having to stay overnight in a hospital. 

4 Versatile options

Fat transfer is a procedure you can personalize and use to your advantage. During the planning stages ahead of your surgery, our experts help you pinpoint areas for fat removal and decide on the specific areas to place the fat. While you might extract fat cells from voluminous areas like your thighs or abdomen, you can use the extracted cells to augment your:

  • Cheekbones
  • Buttocks
  • Hips
  • Breasts

Fat transfer can also fill in deep wrinkles and recessed scars that impact the way you look.
