What is a Fat Transfer?
Why not augment and supplement one part of your body by taking fat away from an undesirable area? This is an exciting technique employed to shape the face, hands, breasts, and buttocks. As opposed to artificial fillers, this procedure uses your own tissue to enlarge and enhance your features. After your fat has been removed by liposuction, it can be used to augment the shape of other parts of the body. This is a well-tolerated procedure, and it produces natural-looking and natural–feeling results.
What Are the Benefits of Fat Transfer?
The benefits of fat transfer are well established. Fat transfer is a brilliant way of correcting facial imperfections by adding volume with a non-allergenic, autologous material. As a result, volume enhancement via fat injection means that there is absolutely no chance of an adverse allergic reaction. Fat injection as a cosmetic treatment is natural, versatile, long lasting, and safe. It has become a preferred method of facial volume enhancement for patients who are allergic to traditional dermal fillers.
Who is a Candidate for a Fat Transfer?
Candidates for fat transfer have areas of unwanted fat and other areas on the body that seem to have a loss of volume or appear creased or sunken, such as the cheeks. Candidates for fat transfer are those who wish to have a more permanent result than those achieved with dermal fillers. Fat transfer is easily combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as Botox®, or a body procedure, such as abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) or liposuction. Many patients find that undergoing facial fat transfer in addition to one of these procedures is more cost-effective than undergoing these treatments separately.

What is the Procedure for Fat Transfer?
First, fat is harvested from one part of your body and then washed and purified. Next, it is carefully reinjected with a specially designed needle into those areas that need augmentation. You and Dr. Nimtz will select a site for fat removal. He will inject it with a local anesthetic, and using a sterile technique, he will insert a cannula connected to a syringe to carefully extract your fat. Once enough fat is obtained from the donor area, Dr. Nimtz will process the fat to prepare your fat cells for transfer.
What is the Cost of Fat Transfer?
The price of a fat transfer procedure varies depending on the extent of treatment needed as well as other possible factors. After you meet with Dr. Nimtz we will identify exactly what your procedure will cost, at which time we will give you an all-inclusive quote. We do offer CareCredit® as a financing option, and our office also accepts Visa, Master Card, American Express, and Discover as well as cash or personal checks.
