Fat Transfer in Atlanta, GA


Fat Transfer

Fat shouldn’t always have a negative context attached to it. There are so many incredible benefits to the right kind of healthy fats that our bodies need to survive and function. In the case of aesthetics, fat also can do wonders when used to enhance a part of your body that needs a new contour. As we age, the bones in the face can shrink and become less dense, leading to a loss of support for the skin and soft tissues. This can result in a sagging or drooping appearance of the skin, particularly around the cheeks and jawline. In addition to bone loss and fat depletion, other factors such as gravity, sun damage, and repetitive facial expressions can also contribute to changes in the appearance of the face over time. Overall, these changes can lead to a less youthful and vibrant appearance; until now. Fat Transfer at Dr. Lissa Plastic Surgery is a world-class procedure that can enhance your facial features, promoting a youthful and vibrant new look. We provide Fat Transfer and Injections for residents in the Atlanta area and surrounding communities in Georgia.

What is Fat Transfer?

Fat Transfer in Atlanta, also known as Fat Grafting, is a cosmetic procedure where we use your own fat from problem areas such as bra bulges, love handles, abdomen, and thighs to areas like the breasts, buttocks, neck, or cheekbones to add increased fullness and volume. This procedure harvests fat from chubby problem areas in your body and transfers it to flat, sunken areas where fullness and volume are lacking. The process of our Fat Transfer typically involves three main steps:

1. Harvesting the fat – Dr. Lissa will use liposuction to remove fat from an area of the body where there is excess fat, such as the abdomen or thighs.

2. Processing the fat – The harvested fat is then purified and prepared for transfer by removing excess fluids and debris.

3. Injecting the fat – The purified fat is then carefully injected into the targeted area, such as the face or breasts, to add volume and contouring.

Fat Transfer procedures have become increasingly popular in recent years due to their natural-looking results and the fact that the patient’s own tissue is used which reduces the risk of rejection or allergic reactions.

What to Expect on the Day of Fat Transfer

When you arrive at Dr. Lissa Plastic Surgery, we will be firmly dedicated to your experience from start to finish. Prior to the Fat Transfer procedure, our highly skilled staff will administer a sedative or local anesthesia to ensure the utmost comfort. The procedure is performed in three steps. First, fat cells are extracted from the harvest site using liposuction. These harvest areas can include the abdomen, buttocks, back, thighs, or any other area where you may have excess fat. During the second step, the harvested fat cells are liquefied, isolated, and sterilized. Finally, the liquefied fat cells are injected directly into the target area using a fine needle. This innovative procedure effectively reduces fat from the harvest areas and increases volume and fullness in the target areas.
