Autologus fat transfer is liposuction of fat from areas that are unwanted and re injecting the fat into areas where the patient desires.
WHAT ARE MY FAT GRAFTING OPTIONS?
Autologous fat transfer is liposuction of fat from areas that are unwanted and re injecting the fat into areas where the patient desires augmentation. Once the fat has been carefully removed to avoid injury to the cells, it is then processed by centrifuging the fat. This allows for separation of the pure fat cells from non living tissues such as water, blood, or local anesthetic. Once harvested, the fat is transferred into small syringes and injected into the desired area as such the lips, face and breast. Fat is injected into depressions or dimples to improve overall contour and achieve aesthetic improvements that would be unattainable with liposuction alone. This technique can also be used in the face to achieve fuller lips or more youthful facial proportions. Dr. Rehnke also transfers fat to the breast for contouring and enhancing the shape of the breast.
