FAT TRANSFER


Fat Transfer in Los Angeles


Fat transfer in Los Angeles is a safe, simple procedure that incorporates VASER liposuction to remove fat from a donor area, such as the thighs, flanks, or abdomen. This removed fat is then cleaned and purified with Puregraft, which has been clinically proven to improve long-term fat graft retention.

Nano Fat Transfer in LA


Nano fat grafting, or micro fat transfer, is a specific fat transfer technique that requires a small amount of donor fat to improve cosmetic concerns.

Nano fat grafting removes unwanted fat from areas of the body using VASER liposuction. This fat is purified in a unique process that turns fat into a similar consistency as dermal fillers. This allows the fat to be reinjected into desired areas with a smaller needle than large amounts of fat grafting.

This special technique is perfect for facial fat transfer for rejuvenation. As we age, our facial features start to lose volume, and wrinkles and creases may form. Nano fat transfer can help improve deep lines and folds of the skin, leaving long-lasting natural-looking results. Nano fat transfer can be a superior and longer-lasting alternative to traditional dermal fillers in Los Angeles.


 
 

How long do Fat Transfer Results Last?


Most patients in Los Angeles find long-term results with fat grafting, especially due to the natural components and the advanced technologies utilized to clean the fat.

The use of the patient’s own fat also means the fat cells can more easily achieve the blood supply it needs to thrive. Without this blood supply, the fat cells can die and the body will reabsorb them. Each area of the body where fat is grafted is different because some areas can more easily provide the nutrients needed for lasting results. Even more important, it depends on the surgeon’s technique.

It should be noted that there is always a chance of fat cell death during the fat transfer process. Dr. Berger will usually over-inject because most patients experience some volume loss over the course of the first few months after the procedure. Also, if years pass, the natural course of aging will also increase the loss of volume.

Fat Banking


If you may want to utilize your removed fat in the future, you may want to consider fat banking.

Once Dr. Berger uses VASER liposuction to remove unwanted fat cells, the fat is then frozen and stored for future use at an optimal time for you. We work with American CryoStem to safely and reliably store your fat, using cryopreservation.

Along with the use of your natural fat, which makes this an incredibly safe procedure, some benefits of fat transfer procedures in LA include:

  • Smooth, natural-looking results
  • Long-lasting or permanent results
  • Little to no downtime required
  • An excellent natural alternative to dermal fillers

FAQs

1HOW LONG IS RECOVERY TIME FOR A FAT TRANSFER?

Most patients can return to their usual activities within a few days of their fat transfer procedure. However, it can take up to two months for the body to make a full recovery and for the full results of treatment to be revealed. Thanks to the advanced liposuction technologies at Rejuvalife, we can offer minimally invasive fat transfer procedures that don’t require significant downtime.

These treatments require no anesthesia, and can instead be performed with mild oral sedation, local tumescent anesthesia, or Pro-Nox nitrous oxide gas. This means that you can enjoy a walk-in-walk-out treatment that results in minimal scarring.

2HOW DO FAT TRANSFERS WORK?
Fat transfer procedures begin with a liposuction technique, collecting unwanted fat from areas including the legs, abdomen, or buttocks. Then, the fat is purified into a smooth liquid that can be immediately injected into the body. These injections can be placed into the buttocks, breasts, face and other areas depending on the cosmetic goals.
3PRP AND FAT TRANSFER

Dr. Andre Berger can optimize the success of fat transfer procedure by using platelet-rich plasma (PRP), or your natural plasma growth factors. This is processed by the patient’s blood using a special tube, spun in a centrifuge to separate the PRP. This is an added measure that can help achieve the best possible results.

The plasma is naturally occurring and regenerative. PRP can improve natural blood supply to the treatment area. This can ultimately help enhance the quality, health, and appearance of your skin, leading to superior results compared to traditional fat transfer procedures.

4HOW LONG DO FAT TRANSFER RESULTS LAST?

Most patients find long-term results with fat grafting, especially due to the natural components and the advanced technologies utilized to clean the fat. The use of the patient’s own fat also means the fat cells can more easily achieve the blood supply it needs to thrive. Without this blood supply, the fat cells can die and the body will reabsorb them. Each area of the body where fat is grafted is different because some areas can more easily provide the nutrients needed for lasting results.

Dr. Berger will usually over-inject because most patients experience some volume loss over the course of the first few months after the procedure. Also, if years pass, the natural course of aging will also increase the loss of volume.

5HOW MUCH DOES FAT TRANSFER COST?

The cost of fat transfer can greatly vary depending on several factors of the procedure, including your specific treatment needed, the time required, and any additional techniques used, such as PRP. Patients may also require multiple appointments to best achieve your cosmetic goals. Since fat transfer is a multi-step process, your price can depend on the cost of the fat donation process (such as VASER liposuction) and the injections.

For example, the Brazilian butt lift procedure can be more costly than facial fat transfer because more fat and other materials are necessary for a successful treatment. Opting for multiple liposuction treatment areas will also increase your cost. During your consultation, you’ll be provided an estimate of pricing for your unique treatment process.

6IS BODY FAT TRANSFER PERMANENT?
Yes and no, the results of your body fat transfer procedure have the potential to be permanent, but everybody reacts and accepts the donor fat differently. The fat that is transferred to your treatment area stays there. That being said, it’s important to remember that weight gain can disrupt the results of your fat transfer. For this reason, Dr. Berger and his team generally recommend patients who undergo fat transfer lead a healthy and active lifestyle.
7HOW MUCH FAT DO YOU NEED FOR A FAT TRANSFER?
Ideally, Dr. Berger and his medical team members recommend patients be within 30lbs of their ideal weight prior to their fat transfer procedure. This allows Dr. Berger to have enough fat to harvest from your abdomen and have purified before it is transferred into your desired treatment area. If you are not within this 30lb range, we encourage you to come in and see Dr. Berger to find out of if fat transfer is the right procedure for you.
8HOW PAINFUL IS FAT TRANSFER?
Because your fat transfer will be performed using an anesthetic, the procedure itself will be comfortable. Following your fat transfer surgery, it’s normal to experience swelling, rare bruising, and tenderness and numbness around your treated areas. These side effects generally resolve on their own within a few weeks of treatment. Most patients are able to return to their normal daily activities, including work, within three to four days of their fat transfer procedure.
9DOES FAT MOVE AFTER FAT TRANSFER?
No, the fat that is transferred into your desired treatment area will not move from that treatment area once you are completely healed. This is because the transferred fat cells anchor to the healthy tissues in your treated areas to maintain a healthy blood supply and stay alive.
10CAN I TRANSFER FAT TO MY BREASTS?
Yes! Fat transfer breast augmentation, or natural breast augmentation, is the perfect procedure for women who wish to give their breasts a subtle enhancement. With a natural breast augmentation, fat is harvested from your abdomen or thighs before being purified and evenly distributed into the breasts. Not only does this procedure provide patients with the contoured body they desire, but it also gives their breasts a natural-looking and -feeling boost of volume.
