We all have spots on our bodies that we’d like to be a little smaller, and perhaps others that could benefit from a bit more volume. Luckily, moving fat from one area of the body to another is an incredibly common and effective procedure. Utilizing fat from your own body instead of synthetic injectable fillers or implants means a higher success rate and lower risk of complications because the material being injected is native to your body. This ensures there is far less of a chance that your body will reject the transfer or have an allergic reaction. Other benefits include a shorter recovery window and longer-lasting results all around.
Fat can be taken from various areas on the body where it tends to collect, such as the abdomen, buttocks, or thighs. After removal, it will be purified and prepared for transfer to the spot of your choosing. Listed below are some of the top areas for fat transfer and injections in the Washington, D.C. area.
Full lips contribute to the appearance of youth and vitality. Whether you have naturally thin lips or have experienced a loss of volume due to age or other lifestyle factors, such as smoking, you could be a candidate for lip injections. There is a myriad of FDA-approved lip injectable options, but depending on your situation a fat injection may be your best bet.
Plump rumps are all the rage these days. More and more, people are appreciating the look of healthy, firm buttocks. If you are feeling self-conscious that your posterior isn’t packing enough of a punch, it could be time to consider a Brazilian Butt Lift, where fat will be taken from another area of the body and injected into your butt. A flatter stomach AND a perkier butt? It almost sounds too good to be true.
Another area of the body where the loss of volume can wreak havoc is in the breasts. A fat transfer can be utilized here to restore perkiness and reshape breasts that could use a little boost. This is a great alternative to implants, as it does not require placing any foreign material in your body. Some women choose to have a breast lift alongside a fat injection for all-around improvement.
A less obvious candidate for a fat transfer is the face. Faces deal not only with the effects of aging but also with a constant barrage of atmospheric assailants. A fat injection could be the perfect solution to unsightly wrinkles, lines, folds, and creases. Instead of a filler, consider a fat transfer to restore plumpness, volume, and vitality to your face.
