Fat Transfer in Orange CT
(Breast & Buttocks)

What is Fat Transfer?

Fat transfer, also known as fat grafting, is a procedure in which a doctor removes fat from areas of excess, for example, thighs, abdomen, etc., and injects the fat into areas that may lack volumes, such as breasts or buttocks.

Fat transfer can offer a long-term, natural-looking result to improve body contours.

Candidates For Fat Transfer

Fat transfer is ideal for candidates who are in good general health and have excess fat in some areas and who want to increase fat volume in others. Good candidates do not have circulation problems, either from a medical condition or from smoking.

It is important for patients to have realistic expectations in order to achieve successful results from this procedure.

Fat Transfer to the Buttock
(Brazilian Butt Lift)

Many patients improve the shape and contour of the buttocks through a procedure known as the “Brazilian” buttock lift. In this procedure, fat is removed from another area of the body by liposuction and then transferred to the buttocks. The “donor” area for the fat is typically the abdomen, back, or other areas where fat may be present in excess. The fat is then injected into the buttocks to create a fuller, more pleasing, and “lifted” appearance. This technique can be performed with only tiny incisions.

Patient Testimonial

“Dr. Restifo is an incredibly talented and skilled surgeon that delivers outstanding results. I would strongly recommend Dr. Restifo to anyone considering cosmetic surgery. You will not be disappointed.”

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

If you desire a modest increase in breast size (perhaps half a cup size), fat transfer may be a good option for you. Fat grafting can sometimes be used to effectively address nominal breast asymmetry.

Good candidates for fat transfer to the breasts should already have a nice shape and good skin tone.

If you want a significant increase in breast size and/or have sagging skin, you will want to consider breast augmentation with implants and potentially a breast lift.

The challenge with using fat alone for breast enhancement is that it’s difficult to get large volumes of fat to “take”.

Please note: Although many doctors perform cosmetic procedures, you need to know that plastic surgeons and cosmetic surgeons are not the same things, plus board-certification matters. Learn more about specialization here.

Dr. Restifo is a Harvard-educated, board-certified plastic surgeon with over twenty-five years of experience performing surgery. He does fat grafting several times each month.

He’s the absolute BEST!”

Fat Transfer Risks And Considerations

Although this procedure is considered safe for most patients, there are certain risks and complications associated with any type of surgical procedure. Some of these risks may include infection, healing problems, and blood clots. Patients can reduce these risks by choosing a skilled and experienced surgeon to perform their procedure, and by adhering to their surgeon’s instructions before and after the procedure.
