Fat Transfer Q & A
What is a fat transfer
Fat transfer, also known as autologous fat grafting or lipofilling, is a cosmetic procedure that harvests fat from one part of your body to enhance another area. At ReJuv Cosmetics in Sand Lake, Florida, the treatment is commonly used to:
Augment the cheeks, lips, or other facial features
Enhance the buttocks or breasts
Correct skin depressions or indentations
Improve the appearance of scars or sunken areas
Who is an ideal candidate for fat transfer?
Individuals seeking a natural alternative to synthetic fillers or implants can benefit from fat transfer. It's ideal for those who have sufficient fat in donor areas and want to address volume loss or enhance specific parts of their body.
How is the fat transfer procedure performed?
The fat transfer process at ReJuv Cosmetics involves three main steps:
Harvesting: Fat is extracted from a donor site, such as the abdomen or thighs, using liposuction.
Purification: The harvested fat is then processed and purified to isolate the viable fat cells.
Injection: The purified fat is carefully injected into the target areas to achieve the desired enhancement.
What can I expect post-procedure?
After a fat transfer, you may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in both the donor and recipient areas. These symptoms typically subside within a week. It's essential to follow post-procedure care guidelines provided by ReJuv Cosmetics, including avoiding pressure on the treated areas and taking any prescribed medications.
How long do the results of a fat transfer last?
The results of a fat transfer can be long-lasting, as the transferred fat integrates with the surrounding tissues. However, not all fat cells will survive the transfer, so some volume loss is expected. Over time, the results may change due to natural aging, but periodic touch-ups or additional treatments at ReJuv Cosmetics can help maintain the desired appearance.
