Our team routinely sees men and women who are interested in body contouring procedures—but not in plastic surgery. Dr. Jack Bertolino and his team at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics can assist with a wide range of less invasive treatments, including fat transfers.
How do fat transfers work?
Most patients have excess fat in certain areas of the body that they would like to address, and areas where they feel they could use more shape and volume. We typically see this with patients who want to firm and shape their buttocks, while reducing fat in areas such as the stomach or flanks. In situations such as this, we remove fat from the trouble spot and inject it into the area where body contours can be enhanced. This is a minimally invasive way of treating two areas in one procedure.
What can I expect from recovery from fat transfer procedures?
Because fat transfers are far less invasive than plastic surgery, and do not require incisions, the recovery period for these treatments is much shorter. For a few days after treatments, patients may experience:
However, these are often short-term and resolve on their own. In many situations, our patients are able to return to work within a week and resume all other activities within 14 days. This recovery time is significantly shorter for fat transfers than surgical interventions, which also have the added concerns of cost, scarring, and increased risk of infections. We find that fat transfer procedures are well-received by patients and are often chosen in lieu of plastic surgery because of how easy it can be to treat more than one area without surgery.
