Dr. Shermak has treated many Baltimore Fat Transfer patients. Please read more about what to expect from the procedure below.
What is Fat Transfer Surgery?
How ideal! Moving fat from a “bad” area to enhance another area that needs it! Liposuction is performed on an area that would benefit, like the abdomen, thigh or back, and this fat can be purified and injected into the face, breast or buttock to enhance shape and fullness. Particularly when thinking about the breast, a slimmer abdomen will make the breasts look that much better when enhanced with fat. Inconspicuous, very small incisions are all that is necessary, and recovery only takes about a week.
Who is a good candidate for Fat Transfer Surgery?
Good candidates are women interested in breast enhancement to improve on visible edges around reconstructive or cosmetic implants, or women who desire a minimal to moderate change without using breast implants. This is breast enhancement with your own tissue.
What is the recovery like for Fat Transfer Surgery?
Surgery is performed as an outpatient. One may experience temporary discomfort, swelling, or numbness. Most women resume regular activity within a week. You may require a binder or a girdle with some foam padding to assure a nice smooth result. As time passes some fat does absorb, possibly up to 50%. Liposuction results are unaffected and permanent with proper diet and exercise.
