Fat Transfer

What is a fat transfer?

Fat transfer is a cosmetic procedure in which Dr. Schwarcz removes fat from one part of your body (abdomen, thighs, etc.) through liposuction and transfers it to another part of your body to diminish signs of aging.

Doing so can reduce stubborn fat bulges and enhance volume in your face to improve your overall appearance and help you gain confidence.

For what is a fat transfer used?

After harvesting fat from targeted parts of your body, Dr. Schwarcz can inject it into other areas to create improved facial volume and better facial symmetry.

Fat transfer is an effective cosmetic procedure that can last for many years. It’s an excellent way to resculpt areas of your body you’re unhappy with as it produces smooth, aesthetically pleasing contours that look and feel natural.

Is fat transfer right for me?

To find out if you’re a good candidate for a fat transfer, Dr. Schwarcz reviews your medical history, examines your skin, and discusses your desired outcome. For best results, you should be at or near your ideal weight and in good overall health.

What happens during fat transfer procedures?

When you arrive at Dr. Schwarcz’s office for a fat transfer procedure, you receive anesthesia to avoid any discomfort. Don’t eat or drink anything the morning of surgery if he asks you to. Dr. Schwarcz uses liposuction to remove excess fat from your abdomen, thighs, or other areas of your body.

He injects the fat into sunken-in parts of your face, sometimes in conjunction with a facelift. Have a friend or family member drive you home after the procedure.

What should I expect after my treatment?

After fat transfer, expect some tenderness, swelling, and bruising at the site of fat harvesting. You may experience swelling near the injection site for about a week, though no scars are visible. Take medications as directed by Dr. Schwarcz, get plenty of rest, and avoid strenuous activity until he gives you the okay.

Don’t live with stubborn fat bulges, asymmetrical features, wrinkles, or other signs of aging when fat transfer offers a younger-looking, aesthetically pleasing appearance. Book an appointment with Robert M. Schwarcz, MD, by phone or online today.
