What you need to know about liposuction and fat transfer …
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that uses a suction technique to remove fat from specific areas of the body. Such as the abdomen, hips, thighs buttocks, arms or neck. It is not a weight loss or weight reduction procedure.
It is simply moving the fat in your body from where you do not want it to where it is desired (in case of fat transfer).
Liposuction is carried out using suction technologies from a small tube. When liposuction is combined with fat transfer, the fat that’s removed is purified and re-injected in a more desirable area of the body, like the butt or Hips.
This procedure is entirely safe when performed by a qualified Plastic Surgeon. Since the fat involved in the fat transfer is taken directly from the patient’s body, there is very little risk when using fat as a filler. This contouring remains relatively permanent, as long as you maintain a stable weight.
You may be a candidate for liposuction if you have too much fat in specific spots with a generally stable body weight; and you are also a healthy individual without a life-threatening illness or medical conditions that can impair healing.
Results following liposuction may not be clear until several weeks after, when the swelling has settled down. There is minimal scarring which becomes less visible with time.
However, there are several factors that determine the final results of Liposuction and Fat transfer. Like
