Bellevue Fat Transfer Cosmetic Surgery Procedures
Those patients considering cosmetic surgery may have heard of liposuction as a means to rid the body of fat, and to look younger and thinner, but liposuction has other uses when it comes to cosmetic or plastic surgery. While it is true that many patients have liposuction to look thinner, some patients actually need fatty deposits applied to areas of their body, to help their skin look more vital and voluminous. Areas such as the face can lose collagen over time, giving way to sunken eyes and saggy skin. Here at the Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery, our doctor, Dr. Jan Zemplenyi, is one of the few cosmetic surgeons that offers fat transfer cosmetic surgery in Bellevue. For many patients, this series of procedures helps them regain their confidence, looking younger and stronger.
This type of procedure has several steps, and employs the use of liposuction to an area of the body that has an adequate amount of fat. For most patients, this occurs in the thigh, buttocks, or abdomen area. These fatty deposits are then applied to the area that needs them, quite often the face, with the use of fat grafting and injections. This type of surgery can also be used in breast augmentation procedures.
This is a surgical procedure that does require some sedation and recovery time. For the liposuction portion of the procedure, the doctor can either use full anesthesia or twilight sedation, both of which are available in the Bel-Red offices. For grafting and injections, no type of anesthesia is necessary.
