During fat transfer, fat is taken from another area of your body and placed in areas that have lost their volume with time.
As we grow older, our face tends to lose its volume. Our cheeks may become smaller, our chin thinner and we start looking older. If we compare a person’s photograph of fifteen or twenty years ago with their face today, we can easily notice such differences.
Fat transfer has been used to augment volume for many years, but an important problem used to be that results were not permanent.
This technique is also a breast augmentation option for women who are looking for a relatively small increase in breast size and would prefer natural results.
Added major advantages of this method are that the material (fat) that is transferred comes from our own body and that the results are long term.
