Lynnwood Fat Transfer Cosmetic Surgery Procedures
When potential cosmetic surgery patients think of liposuction, they mainly think of the removal of fat from the body so that a patient can look slimmer and younger. While this is often true, liposuction can be used in other procedures that allow doctors to transfer fat from one portion of the body to another. As we age, we lose collagen and elastin in our skin, giving way to a saggy, sallow look. Here at the Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery, we offer fat transfer cosmetic surgery in Lynnwood, Our resident physician, Dr. Jan Zemplenyi, is an expert in the field of fat transfer procedures, and for many patients, that is a vital procedure in regaining confidence and looking younger and fresher.
There are three separate parts to a fat transfer procedure. First, liposuction is performed on an area of the body that has extra fatty deposits that the doctor can easily remove. This is usually true in the buttocks, or abdominal or thigh region. After the fat is removed, there is a fat grafting procedure on the area where the fat is to be added, followed by a fat injection.
This is a surgical procedure that will require some recovery time. For the actual liposuction portion of the procedure, patients will need to confer with the doctor for what level of anesthesia that they are comfortable with. Here at Bel-Red, we offer both twilight sedation and full anesthesia. Some type of sedation will be required during liposuction. Grafting and injection does not require anesthesia.
