Fat Transfer and Injections in Atlanta, GA

Have you always wished you could move excess fat in your body from areas where you have too much to areas where you need a little extra padding? Fat transfer and injections provide the possibility to do just that! Atlanta APC Plastic Surgery, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Lisa Bootstaylor, provides fat transfer and injections for residents of Buckhead, Atlanta, Marietta, Sandy Springs, and nearby communities in Georgia.

How can Fat Transfer and Injections improve my appearance?

Imagine transferring your own fat from problem areas such as bra bulges, love handles, abdomen, and thighs to areas like the breasts, buttocks, neck, or cheekbones to add increased fullness and volume! Now it is actually possible using fat transfer injections, a process that is medically known as microlipoinjection. This procedure harvests fat from chubby problem areas in your body and transfers it to flat, sunken areas where fullness and volume are lacking.

What are the advantages of Fat Transfer and Injections?

Fat transfer and injections have become immensely popular with patients and doctors alike because the procedure is safe and effective, while also providing advantages over other procedures, such as:

  • The treatment is minimally invasive and performed as an outpatient procedure
  • Fat transfer provides dramatic improvements without plastic surgery
  • Fat transfer is safe and effective because there is no risk of allergic reaction
  • The procedure harvests fat from problem areas in your body and moves it to new areas where volume is lacking to improve contours in both areas
  • The treatment requires no downtime

How does Fat Transfer work?

Our staff will administer a sedative or local anesthesia to ensure your comfort prior to beginning the procedure. The procedure is done using three steps. First, fat cells are suctioned from the harvest site using liposuction. Harvest areas can include the abdomen, buttocks, back, thighs, or where ever you may have fat to spare. During the second step, harvested fat cells are liquefied, isolated, and sterilized. In the third step, those liquefied fat cells are injected right into the target area with a fine-gauge needle. The procedure diminishes fat from harvest areas and increases volume and fullness in target areas.

Who is a good candidate for Fat Transfer Injections?

Fat transfer injections may be ideal for almost any healthy adult seeking to improve their appearance while bypassing plastic surgery. This procedure is often recommended for younger patients to enhance facial and body contours, as well as for older patients wishing to reverse and slow down the signs of aging.

How many treatments will I need?

In some cases, the body may reabsorb some of the fat cells transferred, and these patients may require a follow-up treatment. In other patients, the body may absorb some or all of the transplanted fat cells over the course of time, requiring a follow-up treatment in the future.

Are there any risks associated with Fat Transfer Injections?

There is very little risk of any adverse reaction with fat transfer and injections because the procedure uses tissue from your own body to enhance and increase volume in desired areas. Some patients may experience redness, swelling or discomfort at the injection sites or harvest sites, but these symptoms subside naturally in a day or two.

Dr. B is board certified in beautification! "I searched the internet looking at before and after photos and I spoke with representatives at a lot of offices that performed buttock augmentation. On the phone and on the internet, I encountered descriptions of lengthy OR times, staged surgery procedures, liposuction pictures that looked like buttock augmentation had been preformed but not listed and non- plastic surgeons predominately advertising the Brazilian buttock lift. I picked Dr. Bootstaylor because of her before and after liposuction photos, her excellent reputation in the community and her broad certification in Plastic Surgery. The consult was great and the new sensible shapeliness of my…" by J. J.
