What Is A Fat Transfer?
When a man or woman gains weight, loses weight, or ages, they lose natural roundness and shape in specific body features where volume was once plentiful. One way to restore lost volume is through an advanced cosmetic technique known as a fat transfer. At S.Aesthetics.MD in Rocklin, CA, we use CuraMedix to perform this nonsurgical treatment. This procedure uses acoustic wave technology, sometimes referred to as shockwave therapy, to remove fat from a section of the body and inject it into a specific place that needs additional volume. Fat transfer procedures can be used on widespread areas, such as the breasts or buttocks, or on small areas, such as the laugh lines, lips, cheeks, or under the eyelid. Fat grafting and transfers are commonly chosen when a patient desires a natural enhancement versus using implants or fillers. Nonsurgical aesthetics and regenerative health expert Dr. Tuan Doan is skilled at using the most advanced liposuction and grafting methods for performing fat transfers.

What Can I Expect from My Fat Transfer?
During your fat transfer, we will perform liposuction to collect fat from predetermined areas on the body so it can be harvested and separated inside a centrifuge, which prepares the highest quality fat for syringes. After preparing the injection site, the healthy fat tissue will be added to your area(s) of concern. The process of injecting is completed in layers until even smoothness has been attained. For larger areas, numerous injections will be needed. After the transfer process has been completed, we will use CuraMedix to perform noninvasive acoustic wave therapy to stimulate the body's natural regenerative process while restoring the elasticity and firmness of the skin. Remember, after your treatment, there are two different areas on the body that need to be carefully treated: the fat removal site and injection site. The recovery process may be longer if a larger section on the body was addressed. The sites will appear swollen with some possible bruising, but the outcomes can be noticed almost immediately. The added bonus is the area where liposuction was used will look slimmer. Fat grafting yields beautiful and lasting results, but there will be some fat that reabsorbs back to the body.

Should I get dermal fillers instead?
Many people decide to get injectable dermal fillers for wrinkles and deep creases features in the face. However, fillers aren't necessarily designed to last a long time. Dermal fillers are temporary and will need to be re-injected every few months to keep your outcomes.
