Body Sculpting with Fat Transfer in Atlanta

Fat grafting puts your own natural fat to good use!

Do you ever wonder why you have excess fat around your hips, thighs, and belly, but your body somehow couldn’t manage to store it in places where you would like to be a little curvier? We are genetically programmed to store body fat in certain areas, which are different for everyone. However, if you are unhappy with the cards you were dealt when it comes to where your body holds onto fat, a body sculpting procedure called autologous fat transfer may help you achieve the look you desire.

Fat transfer, also known as fat grafting or fat injection, is a body sculpting procedure that literally shifts fat around in your favor, removing fat from problem areas to create a slimmer profile, and adding a portion of it back to an area that is better suited for it. The result is a more aesthetically pleasing silhouette and natural curve enhancement.

Many of our Atlanta plastic surgery patients choose fat transfer for their body contouring procedure, as fat is a safe, natural, and non-allergenic filler that will last.

What can a fat transfer procedure do for you?

A fat transfer procedure can be used to improve the appearance of a variety of places on the face and body:

  • Add volume and definition to the butt to achieve an hourglass shape in the lower body (also known as a “Brazilian Butt Lift” or “BBL”)
  • Restore age-related volume loss to the face
  • Rejuvenate the hands
  • Add subtle volume to the breasts in certain patients

I love the results of my surgery and I’m thankful I chose the best practice in Atlanta to work with! I have had the best bikini summer ever!

How does fat transfer work?

Fat transfer is a two-step procedure that can typically be performed during a single operation. First, excess fat is selectively removed using liposuction. A portion of the fat is prepared to be added back to a new location. Next, this fat is injected into specific areas where you would like to enhance your features. Often, the fat is injected into the buttocks for additional volume and more enhanced curves, in a procedure known as a Brazilian Butt Lift or BBL, for short.

Our surgeons perform all body sculpting and fat transfer procedures at our private, accredited on-site surgery suite. General anesthesia is typically used for your comfort and safety.

Am I a good candidate for body sculpting?

The best candidates are those who have a modest amount of excess fat requiring transfer to achieve the desired results and good skin elasticity, which will allow the skin to contract smoothly to the new, improved body contour. During your consultation, one of our board-certified plastic surgeons can sit down with you one-on-one, answer any questions you have about the safety of the procedure, and perform an evaluation to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure.

Recovery and Aftercare

What you might expect for recovery following fat transfers really depends on the nature of the procedure. Generally, the more extensive the fat transfer surgery is (in terms of amount and location(s) of fat removed), the longer you will have to wait before resuming activities. Your Atlanta plastic surgeon will explain to you the details of what you might expect early in the consultation process so that you can make an informed decision.

One special aspect of a fat transfer recovery for our Atlanta Brazilian Butt Lift patients: if you are having fat transferred to your buttocks, you will have to modify how you sit for a few weeks as the transferred fat gets used to its new home.
