Fat Transfer (Micro-Lipoinjection) in Chattanooga
Also known as autologous fat transplantation or micro-lipoinjection, a fat transfer is a great way to augment facial or body features and fill in lines.
A fat transplant is performed by extracting fat from one area of the body (typically buttocks, thighs or abdomen) via liposuction and then injecting the filtered fat through a syringe to various areas of the face or body.
Fat Transfer (Fat Transplant) Recovery
Within a few days, patients can return to work , but full recovery is usually not achieved until one full week has passed. Your cosmetic surgeon may advise you to refrain from strenuous activities for 3 to 6 weeks following your fat transfer. Because all fat may not survive after the first injection, multiple injections may be needed.
A fat transfer involves very minimal risks and can be discussed during your consultation. After the procedure, some swelling and bruising is anticipated.
