A Cutting-Edge Cosmetic Procedure
Do you ever just grab one part of your body and wish you could move it over to another? Do you ever just look at yourself in the mirror and say “I’ll take some of this fat here and put it right over there”? Well, at Music City Plastic Surgery, your desire for fat transfer in Nashville, TN, can be turned into reality. With advances in techniques and technology, fat transfer is becoming a hot trend in Music City, and many of our patients have expressed interest in it after seeing the dramatic results it brings.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael R. Burgdorf of Music City Plastic Surgery stays at the forefront of advancements in the cosmetic surgery industry. As an exemplar of innovation, he now offers patients in and around the Nashville area fat transfer, also known as fat grafting.
Fat – The Natural Answer
New, safer technology has emerged that provides us with an effective and revolutionary way to enhance the body naturally. You no longer have to be hesitant or avoid aesthetic enhancement because of the foreign or synthetic materials being used. Dr. Burgdorf takes adipose cells (fat) from one part of your body and relocates them to another. The key to success in these procedures is that your own tissue is used, not some artificial substance.
The latest advances show that fat is rich in stem cells and, when relocated to different places in the body, can offer long-lasting, natural-looking rejuvenation. Because the donor site must have an ample amount of fat for harvesting, fat transfer is an excellent way to sculpt an area of the body that is plagued with unwanted fat. Now, patients can accomplish two aesthetic goals at once. They can contour a “problem area” as well as naturally enhance another area that is lacking volume.
Although this technique has been around for some time, recent advancements in fat grafting technology and techniques have led to increasingly desirable results. With improved harvesting, purifying, and delivery methods, patients can expect predictable, enduring, and – best of all – more natural-looking results.
Benefits of Fat Transfer
It is not uncommon for someone to have excess fat in one area of the body yet long to augment another part of the body. For instance, you might like to eliminate excess fat from your thighs and augment the contour of your breasts or backside. Alternatively, maybe you want to remove unwanted fat from your abdominal area, as well as restore fullness to the hollow areas of your face that have lost volume over the years. Perhaps you desire slimmer hips and enhanced lips.
Whatever you desire, now it is possible to address two concerns with one solution. The following are common areas that can benefit from fat harvesting and transfer:
- Body – Fat cells can be harvested from several donor sites, provided the site has a sufficient amount of fat. This is great news for those who would like to undergo some type of body contouring, including the abdomen, hips, thighs, or buttock area. These areas typically have the most fat available and thus are the most commonly used donor sites.
- Breast Augmentation – For women who desire a slight degree of breast augmentation, fat transfer to the breasts might be a good option. Although fat transfer usually only increases the breasts by one cup size, it provides natural-looking and natural-feeling results. It is also a great option for those who suffer from slight breast asymmetry and would like to enhance one breast to better match the other. Fat transfer to the breasts can also improve the look of breast augmentation or breast reconstruction by filling in any ripples or wrinkles seen near the implant.
- Buttock Enhancement – Many people long for a more voluminous, elevated posterior. In the past, buttock implant surgery was the only way to enhance this area. In most cases, it is an effective enhancement technique, but some patients have reported experiencing complications related to the implants. On the other hand, using fat transfer as a means of buttock enhancement has a high success rate. In part, this is because the buttocks have good blood circulation, which helps deliver a healthy blood flow to the newly transferred fat cells.
- Facial Enhancement – Although injecting synthetic dermal fillers is an effective means of restoring lost facial volume and filling in wrinkles, this approach poses two challenges: It is not a permanent solution, and the cost can add up over time because periodic touch-up treatments are required for as long as the patient would like to maintain the aesthetic results of the procedure. In contrast, using one’s own natural fat tissue for lip enhancement, cheek enhancement, and improvements to the eye and brow areas provides long-lasting results that require little, if any, treatment maintenance.
