Fat Grafting

Fat Grafting Surgery

      Today we know that the transfer of fat from one area of ​​the body to another also carries a large amount of "stem cells" located in the "boarder" of fat cell groups. With this, followed by a thoroughly new transfer protocol, fat absorption is virtually zero and, unlike what happened in the past, this fat still suffers an increase of volume in the subsequent 3 months.

 

      The discovery of this new fat transfer protocol opened a very wide range of indications for volume replacement and even aesthetic augmentations in several areas.

 

      Together with the aging process comes a fat loss in the whole body, especially in the face. Using this new protocol we an associate the volume replacement with the correction of facial sagging. We have been doing this replacement by routine in all our face lifts.

 

      The same technique also provided the fat transfer to other regions of the body to correct several depressions and especially to increase the buttocks ("Brazilian Butt Lift" as this technique is known in the US).
