Common areas to perform fat transfer. Did you know?

Plastic surgeons commonly perform fat transfers, also known as fat grafting or fat injections, in various areas of the body. Here are some of the most common areas where fat transfers are frequently done:

  1. Buttocks: Fat transfer to the buttocks is a popular procedure to enhance the shape and size of the buttocks, often referred to as a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) or Dr´s Mallol technique, which is Dominican Butt Lift. The surgeon harvests fat from different areas of the body, such as the abdomen or thighs, and injects it into the buttocks for augmentation.

  2. Face: Fat transfers can be used to restore volume and rejuvenate the face. They are commonly performed to address facial aging, fill in wrinkles and lines, enhance cheeks or lips, and improve facial contour. Fat grafting in the face provides natural-looking and long-lasting results.

  3. Breasts: Fat transfers to the breasts, also known as autologous fat transfer breast augmentation, offer a natural alternative to traditional breast implants. The surgeon takes fat from other areas of the body and injects it into the breasts to increase their size or improve their shape. However, it\\\\\\\’s important to note that fat transfer to the breasts may have limitations in terms of the amount of volume increase achievable.

  4. Hands: Fat grafting can be utilized to rejuvenate the appearance of aging hands. As we age, our hands lose volume, and the veins and tendons become more visible. Injecting fat into the back of the hands can restore volume, reduce the prominence of veins, and improve the overall youthful appearance.
  1.       Calves:  also known as calf augmentation with fat grafting, is a procedure where fat is transferred from one area of the body to the calves to enhance their shape and size. This procedure is typically sought by individuals who desire fuller, more defined calves.
  1. Scars and deformities: Fat transfers can be performed to correct contour irregularities, scars, or deformities resulting from surgery, injury, or previous liposuction procedures. Injecting fat into these areas can help fill in the depressions and improve the overall appearance.

It\\\\\\\’s important to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Mallol who will provide you with a comprehensive evaluation and personalized recommendations for your specific goals.
