Fat transfer surgery is minimally invasive, and the procedure is versatile—it can be used to fill in lost volume in the face, enhance the size and shape of the buttocks, or smooth out depressions in the stomach or breasts caused by trauma or previous surgery. Common sites that are used to harvest the fat include the abdomen, thighs, and hips—they are considered “problem areas” for many people and often have plentiful pockets of fat. By harvesting from these areas, problem areas are diminished, and contour is improved.

You will meet with Dr. Crispin and determine if your aesthetic goals are best met with fat transfer or another procedure.
Dr. Crispin carefully considers the area of treatment, appearance of this area, and your specific goals to determine the amount necessary for fat removal.
The only incisions involved with fat transfer are those caused by the liposuction surgery used for fat harvest. The fat injection process that follows is minimally invasive. Therefore, people often experience only a brief recovery period, getting back to normal activities quickly. Patients should expect to take about a week off to rest and heal following surgery. Bruising, swelling, and discomfort are normal side effects, but any pain can be controlled with medication, and should subside within a few days.
1) How big will my fat transfer incisions be?
Incisions are tiny; approximately 2mm (think of the size of a pencil eraser).
2) Will fat transfer help my cellulite?
There may be some slight improvement, but the best way to control cellulite is through exercise and a healthy diet.
3) How permanent are my fat transfer results?
Keeping your weight stable is key to maintaining your new slim, contoured shape. Any substantial weight gains or large fluctuations can permanently affect your liposuction results. Maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly to ensure the longevity of your results.
