What is liposuction?
Liposuction has long been regarded as a groundbreaking procedure because it involves the removal of stubborn fat pockets that are hard to manage through diet and exercise alone. This surgical technique works on areas like the abdomen, back, and thighs, giving patients a more sculpted look afterward.
During surgery, Dr. LaGrasso inserts a cannula through a punch-hole incision into the targeted areas. This instrument is used to loosen excess tissue before it's suctioned away. Our team takes great care to reduce your risk of complications like scarring and ensure a smooth, safe procedure.
How does a fat transfer work?
A fat transfer is an equally impressive option for body contouring that goes hand-in-hand with liposuction. Once the liposuction process is complete, Jeffrey LaGrasso M.D. purifies the tissue and administers it into areas that could use a boost of volume. We frequently use this technique to fill out hollows in the face or sagging in the breasts and buttocks.
Here are some ways to enhance your appearance with a fat transfer in Miami, FL:
- Improve facial shape and fullness
- Smooth out wrinkles and lines
- Even out depressions in the skin
- Rejuvenate thinning lips or hands
- Augment the breasts or buttocks
Who is a candidate for liposuction and fat transfer?
The best candidates for body contouring are healthy individuals who want to improve their body shape or reduce common but unwanted signs of aging. You should be free from any serious medical conditions that could impact your results. Dr. LaGrasso will review your medical history and assess your needs during an initial consultation.
What are the benefits of liposuction and fat transfer?
Some people turn to dermal fillers or silicone implants to achieve their aesthetic goals. However, fillers are not long-term and require frequent touch-up appointments over the years. Though implants are long-lasting, they may cause unnatural outcomes. Silicone materials can also cause complications and shift over time.
In contrast, liposuction and fat transfer treatments are minimally-invasive and yield soft, natural-looking results. And since we use your own tissue, there's no risk of an allergic reaction. Plus, fat grafting typically lasts longer than traditional fillers and requires less maintenance in the future.
What results to expect from liposuction and fat transfer
Results from liposuction and fat transfer depend on your body type and the extent of fat removal involved. You can expect a slimmer and more proportionate appearance and a boost of volume where needed. Clothing may fit better, and your contours can appear more refined. Dr. LaGrasso understands the importance of providing outcomes that look great and enhance your existing features.
