We hear it all the time: “Can you take my unwanted belly fat and use it to plump up my flat behind?” The short answer is YES! Body Micro Fat Grafting (also referred to as fat transfer or fat injections) is a procedure that involves transferring fat from one part of the body to another in order to volumize, shape and sculpt the desired area(s). Dr. Born can use fat grafting to create a more voluptuous behind (buttocks), soften aging and boney “witch” hands, and smooth out unsightly hollows or “dents” on the body. One of the most requested procedures at the TMB practice is the “Brazilian Butt Lift,” which involves a precise application of the fat grafting technique to achieve a fuller, rounder and firmer backside. Dr. Born specializes in fat grafting techniques, and is regarded as an authority on fat grafting surgery amongst his peers. During your private consultation, he will listen to your concerns and determine if micro fat grafting is the right procedure for you.
Body Micro Fat Grafting is a surgical procedure that uses fat to contour, shape and plump up deflated or “flat” areas on the body. Body fat grafting can also be used to fill in hollows or irregular depressions on the body, and can help even out and correct strange “lumpy” contours caused by previously performed liposuction. Many patients are relieved to know that the undesirable results from improperly performed liposuction CAN be remedied with the right fat grafting application.
Body Micro Fat Grafting surgery can be performed under local or general anaesthetic depending on the patient and the areas which are to be treated. Before the procedure, the patient – in consultation with Dr. Born – will determine the “donor” site on the body from which the fat will be harvested. Typically, excess and unwanted fat can be found on the abdomen, buttocks, inner thighs, arms and back. During the procedure, fat is first removed from the chosen donor site using a liposuction cannula (a thin, tube-like syringe). This fat is then prepared – filtered and purified – before re-injection into the chosen recipient site. Body micro fat grafting offers a long lasting surgical result with a natural look and feel. As well, since fat transfer involves the use of your OWN fat cells, it is biocompatible and thus there is NO risk of allergic reaction or rejection.
Body Micro Fat Grafting is a very safe procedure with a high success rate that can generally be performed on people of all ages – including children. During your initial consultation, Dr. Born will gather a complete medical history and perform a physical assessment in order to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the procedure. We advise new patients to come with a list of questions, so that you may discuss the specifics of your case and feel confident that any proposed treatments address all of your unique concerns.
