Body Fat Transfer

Fat transfers have been utilized for more than 100 years to fill in facial blemishes such as hollowed cheeks, sunken eyes or indented scars.

Today, the newest techniques for fat transfer in Mexico are used to enhance many other areas of the body, including the biceps, triceps, and breasts.

Body Fat Transfer Defined

FAT TRANSFER is a beautifying surgical method that transfers fat from one part of the body such as the thighs or the abdomen to an area where fat is essential. Fat transfer is also referred to as fat grafting, and micro lipo-injection. Fat transfer allows the surgeon in Mexico to provide the desired shape and smoothness to a specific body part.

Procedure for Body Fat Transfer

Body fat transfers are performed by board-certified plastic surgeons in Mexico under general anesthesia.

The fat transfer procedure differs dependent upon the technique used and the area to be treated. The procedure entails:

  • Antiseptic and a topical anesthetic explicated to the areas: the location where the fat will be removed (donor site) and the treated area where the fat will be injected. The donor site is typically the abdomen or thighs.
  • The fat cells are collected from the donor site through liposuction.
  • The fat cells are administered and purified before being injected into the treated area.

It takes three to four days for the tiny blood vessels (capillaries) to reach and supply the newly-transplanted fat cells with a blood supply. During this time, up to 60 percent of the transferred fat cells will expire. For this reason, the treated area is typically overfilled. More than one treatment may be required to attain the greatest results.

Recovery Stages

After body fat transfer in Mexico, resting and relaxation should take place for up to three weeks after the procedure. Within two to three days after the procedure, your surgeon will remove the bandages and you will be able to shower.

The treated area may be red for the first 48 and there is typically swelling for several weeks; however, any bruising should subside within a few days. Scabs may also form at the injection site. Oral pain medications can help treat any discomfort.

Risks and Side Effects

Complications are possible with any medical procedure, but complications from fat transfers are rare. The most common include bruising, swelling, redness, uneven skin texture, infection, an abscess, excessive bleeding, and scarring. When fat is introduced into two or more areas, asymmetry may occur.
