What Areas on the Body Can I Add Volume With Liposuction and Fat Transfer?

Are you dreaming about having a curvy figure? If so, why not consider liposuction and fat transfer to naturally fill in areas such as the breasts and buttocks? You can flatten problem areas like the stomach, love handles, thighs, and calves while creating more volume in other areas.

If you are seeking a more voluptuous body, schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Jeffrey LaGrasso. During a consultation at Jeffrey LaGrasso M.D. in Miami, FL, he will meet with you to discuss your goals and determine the best possible solution to help give you volume where you want it.

All about liposuction with fat transfer

If you have areas of fat that you simply cannot get rid of with exercise and diet, and you have other regions of the body that lack volume, liposuction with fat transfer is often the perfect solution.

Dr. LaGrasso will treat areas of excess fat using liposuction, which involves removing fat via a small skin puncture. The fat is then loosened prior to removal using a cannula, which is a small hollow tube. The fat then undergoes processing and sterilization before being reinjected in targeted areas to naturally form more volume.

Liposuction can also be performed in conjunction with a contouring procedure that will help smooth overlying skin. In many ways, liposuction is a form of liposculpture because you’ll enjoy slimmer, flatter areas where the fat has been removed and greater volume where it is reinjected, such as in the breasts and buttocks.

When undergoing liposuction with fat grafting, general anesthesia is often used, but it is treated as an outpatient procedure. However, you should make plans to have someone drive you home following the procedure.

What to expect after liposuction and fat transfer

You will experience some bruising and swelling following liposuction with fat transfer. Give yourself enough time to recover. Luckily, with the procedure, there is very little scarring. Dr. LaGrasso always places the incisions in discreet locations and ensures they are tiny.

The results from liposuction with fat grafting can last for years as long as you maintain your target weight, eat healthily, and exercise. Ideally, you should undergo the procedure after you have finished childbearing because pregnancy can alter the results of the procedures.

As your body heals, a small amount of the injected fat is reabsorbed but not very much. Our team always takes great care to layer the injected fat to ensure long-lasting and natural-appearing results.

Common areas for fat transfer

Most people think about fat transfer for the breasts and buttocks, but you can also have fat transferred to your face to fill out hollow areas and smooth away wrinkles. You can also have the fat transferred to the back of your hands for younger-looking, smoother hands. Fat transfer can effectively restore lost volume from weight loss and aging.
