What Is A Fat Transfer?
If you'd like to enhance the volume in specific areas of your face or body, you may be a great candidate for a cosmetic technique known as fat grafting (a fat transfer). A fat transfer removes fat from one or more areas of the body and transfers it into a specific place that needs additional volume. A fat transfer can be performed on large areas, such as the breasts or buttocks, or on small features, such as the lower eyelid, cheeks, or lips. Fat transfers are generally chosen when a patient desires a natural enhancement versus using implants or injectable fillers. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John Burnett uses the most effective techniques for performing fat transfers at his office in Fresno, CA. This body contouring treatment at John F. Burnett, MD creates natural-looking, appealing outcomes.

"My first breast augmentation was back in 2008 with Dr. Burnett, and it’s what made me search for him 12 years later! I was absolutely pleased with the first round, I was quite excited to have my implants exchanged. The only problem was after breastfeeding two babies, I was nervous about the choices available for a breast lift. I am not fond of scars, and after the consult, I was so relieved on the plan that fit me and my body that Dr. Burnett recommended. Dr. Burnett is professional, yet warm funny personality. I was at ease through the whole process. The staff is so helpful and is very prompt at returning phone calls. The result is amazing!! Dr. Burnett delivered exactly what I wished for. I couldn’t be happier!"- M.Z. / Google / Mar 19, 2021

What to Expect with Fat Transfer
When undergoing a fat transfer, you will be placed under anesthesia. First, liposuction is first performed using a thin, special cannula to carefully extract the fat so that it can be purified and harvested through a centrifuge. After prepping the injection site, the healthy fat tissue will be transferred into the area of concern. The process of injecting is completed in layers until the desired outcome has been attained. For larger areas, numerous injections will be used and massaged layer by layer. After a fat transfer, you will enter a healing phase. Remember, there are two different areas on the body that require healing: the area involving liposuction and the injection sites. The sites will appear red and slightly swollen, but the outcomes can be seen almost immediately.
Take the Natural Approach
If you are looking to get fuller lips or want to fill in facial lines, this treatment may be a great option. Furthermore, a fat transfer works great for the buttocks or breasts. This treatment can help you to achieve the look you wish for without undergoing a major surgery that could require more lengthy downtime. We invite you to contact John F. Burnett, MD in Fresno, CA to schedule a consultation.
