Fat Transfer in Mexico for Body, Butt, Face, and Breasts
Fat Transfer, otherwise known as fat grafting or fat injection, is a natural, minimally invasive treatment. Fat transfer is an upcoming trend for those wanting augmentation (breast, buttock) or replacing fat loss due to aging (face, hand). By moving fat, you can increase the volume of that particular area, smoothing lines/wrinkles, and more.
Areas of the Body You Can Transfer Fat to:
- Scars (including Acne)
The best areas of the body to harvest fat from are the knee, inner & outer thigh and abdomen. The success rate depends on both removals of the grafts and subsequent injections.
This procedure is perfect for making breasts or buttocks look fuller and more round. It is also good for those who are older and are losing volume in their face or body. By transferring fat, a surgeon can sculpt a more youthful body or face. Fat transfer has dramatically transformed the confidence and look of many patients.
Fat transfer in the breast area is controversial as it can result in calcifications formation and may interfere with mammography in cancer detection.
How Fat Transfer Works:
Fat transfer is a highly complex procedure involving a board-certified surgeon using special equipment to fat graft cells. The complex part of the process involves using only ‘viable’ fat cells that can live in a different part of a patient’s body.
Only certain parts of the body have shown that they take the transfer the best, areas that are vascularized. Meaning the fat will need its supply of blood to thrive and produce great results. This will require a surgeon who is meticulous and has all the necessary training.
Benefits of Fat Transfer:
- Reduce the appearance of thinness and sunken areas
- Add ‘curvier’ shape to body
- More permanent than temporary fillers
- Uses your fat, other than injectable fillers
- Results later than popular injectables, but are not permanent
Disadvantages of Fat Transfer:
- Results last a while but are not permanent
- May need multiple sessions for larger areas
Considerations of Fat Transfer:
One of the most frequent complaints of fat transfer is when the fat grafted areas will give an inconsistent or unusual appearance. When choosing a qualified fat transfer surgeon, it’s important to review all the before and after photos with a discriminating eye. A lot of photos can be doctored or altered to give a better result.
Choose a surgeon who has shown many visual examples, inconsistent lighting, with patients without makeup. Plastic surgery is an art, so look for a doctor who has demonstrated artistry and a keen eye for aesthetics.
Costs of Fat Transfer Procedure:
Fat injection procedure costs will highly depend on the areas in which you want to fill, the geolocation of the surgeon, where there is local anesthesia or general anesthesia and the surgeon’s experience. Overall, fat transfers will typically cost you between $1,500 to $6,500, with a national (US) average of $1,909.
Fat injections procedures will typically involve the face, lips, breasts or butt. Many patients will combine areas they wish to perform fat grafting. This will increase the costs that patients are expected to pay.
