Fat Transfer (Microlipoinjection)


The fat transfer procedure involves injecting the patient&rsqou;s own fat cells into target areas to restore volume and contour.

Detailed Description

Autologous fat transfer, also called microlipoinjection, is one of the safest injectable treatment methods available because it uses the patients’ own fat. In the procedure, the doctor draws a small amount of fat from the thigh or buttocks with low-power liposuction. The doctor then injects the fat into the targeted areas. While a large amount of the fat may be reabsorbed by the body within several months of the procedure, as much as a third of the total injected volume can remain in the body for years.
