Fat from Your Hips to Your Lips?

How many times have you said to yourself – I would love to take the fat from my [insert area here] and put it in my [insert area here]?  We certainly would all love to evenly disperse our fat cells to achieve our perfect body. The good news is that we can perform a fat transfer procedure to achieve better proportions.

With a fat transfer procedure, Dr. Franckle takes small amounts of fat cells from one area of the body and transfers those cells to another. For example, he can take fat from your hips (where a lot of excess fat cells are stored for many women) and inject it into your lips, giving you a natural looking plump.  Common areas we retrieve fat from include the abdomen, buttocks or inner thighs. Areas we frequently inject fat into include the lips, cheeks, under eyes, hands and buttocks (the Brazillian butt lift).

How does this fat transfer procedure work? Fat is removed via liposuction and carefully re-injected into the new area. Dr. Franckle uses a technique to layer small injections of fat throughout the new area within different tiers of muscle and fat. Strategically placing the fat injections will result in a more natural look.

Besides the thrill of relocating your own fat, this procedure has many other benefits.  By using your own tissue, we are eliminating the possibility of allergic reactions. Unlike other artificial injectable fillers, fat grafting will give you permanent results (filler patients require an injection every 6-9 months).  So what are you waiting for?
