AirSculpt® Fat Transfers

Reviewing The Key Benefits of Fat Transfer Vs. Implants

A fat transfer procedure, also known as fat grafting, is one of the safest ways to add volume to specific body parts. It is also one of the most comfortable and natural alternatives, especially compared to options like implants or fillers. 

Before we delve into the specific benefits of fat transfers, let's better understand what these procedures entail.

How Does a Fat Transfer Work?

As the name suggests, a fat transfer harvests material from one region of the body and places it into another. The fat is extracted from a donor area using liposuction or a comparable variant like AirSculpt®. It is then collected, processed, and cleaned to separate blood and other fluids from high-quality fat. The fat is then injected into the site to be augmented. The breasts, buttocks, hips, and hands are the most common areas enhanced with a fat transfer. 

Fat is usually removed from the patient's problem areas with enough excess fat. Common donor sites for a fat graft include the following:

  1. Stomach
  2. Back
  3. Under-buttocks 
  4. Love Handles 
  5. Thighs
  6. Underarms

Remember that transferred fat always comes from an area with excess fat. Patients seeking a substantial augmentation must have enough extra fat to complete the transfer

Benefits of a Fat Transfer

Reduced Risks 

The benefits of fat transfer are numerous. Since the patient's own fat is used, the risk of allergic reactions or infections is low. For most patients, the treatment only takes one session. There is minimal discomfort and only one to two days of downtime.

With implants, there is a risk of capsular contracture, during which scar tissue forms around and squeezes the implant, resulting in pain and distorted results. Other adverse reactions like auto-immune issues, while rare, also exist. 

Additionally, innovative fat transfer techniques like AirSculpt® avoid general anesthesia, which is more common during implant procedures. Avoiding general anesthesia further reduces risks and allows patients to go home right after their procedure. 

Natural Look and Feel

Fat grafting provides a natural look regardless of where the fat is transferred. Whereas implants can look eerily unnatural and feel stiff, a fat transfer does not make you look like you had any work done. You look better and younger, and the treated area will feel subtly soft. 

For example, a fat transfer to the breasts gives a more youthful appearance while helping provide a complimentary lifting effect and supple feel. A Brazilian butt lift grafts fat to the buttocks to give you the rounded backside and hourglass shape you've always wanted.

Long-Lasting, Customizable Results

The results of a fat transfer are not immediate. It takes several months before the total effect is noticeable. But it's worth the wait because the results are long-lasting. 

Once the transplanted fat establishes a new blood supply, the results will be permanent. Technology like AirSculpt® enables surgeons to seamlessly filter out low-quality material, maximizing the extent of survival. Not only does AirSculpt® harvest the best material, but it also allows for precise quantities of fat to be grafted, ensuring perfectly proportional results, even if the breasts or buttocks were previously asymmetrical. 

With implants, there is limited personalization, as the shells come in pre-determined shapes or sizes. Plus, they must be removed after several years or if the patient's weight changes substantially. 

Permanent Fat Removal

Fat cells removed with AirSculpt® do not return, as the number of fat cells in the body remains constant after puberty. Although it is not a weight-loss procedure, these treatments offer a permanent solution to stubborn fat deposits that do not respond to diet and exercise. 

For example, a patient may enlarge her breasts with fat removed from the thighs, stomach, or love handles. Their figure achieves better proportions, larger breasts, and a slimmer waist and midsection in one session. It's no wonder patients are so enthusiastic about this procedure!

Patients with implants do not experience the added benefit of fat removal, and their downtime is much longer than after a fat transfer. This disadvantage implies they'll have to wait several weeks before being able to return to working out and losing stubborn fat.
