Fat Grafting

Have you ever wanted fat taken away from one part of your body where it is unwanted and used somewhere else that you felt needed more fullness?  Are there parts of your body that you believe should be fuller and plumper, such as your face, hands, breasts or buttocks? You may want to investigate Fat Grafting. A fat grafting procedure in the Northern New Jersey Area transfers fat from areas in which you have excess fat, such as the hips, outer thighs, or abdomen and injects it into areas that may be lacking in volume.

WHAT IS FAT GRAFTING?

Also known as Fat Transfer or Fat Injection, this procedure uses liposuction to harvest fat from unwanted areas.  The fat is then processed and injected back into your body where fullness and volume is desired.

AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR FAT GRAFTING IN THE NORTHERN NEW JERSEY AREA?

In a select group of patients Fat Grafting can be used to help contour your breast.  But Fat Transfers are not limited to the breast. If you have facial areas that appear creased and sunken, or desire more permanent correction than provided by temporary fillers, you are a good candidate. They can also change your body contour, revise scars, or rejuvenate your hands.  It is the basis to Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery (See Brazilian Butt Lift).

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM FAT GRAFTING?

Fat Grafting by Dr. Tutela can produce many pleasing results in NYC.  It can produce a modest increase in breast size, as well as fill in hollows after a lumpectomy.  It can reduce facial creases, such as laugh lines, smile lines, and crow’s feet. And those who wish for fuller, more rounded buttocks (See Brazilian Butt Lift) will also enjoy the outcomes.

HOW LONG IS RECOVERY FROM FAT GRAFTING?

In the first week, there will be significant swelling, which will diminish within two to three weeks. By the third week, the results will be more apparent, although subtle swelling may persist for weeks.
