Olympia Fat Transfer Cosmetic Surgery
One of the most common reasons that a patient elects to have plastic surgery is to look younger and wrinkle-free. Many patients have heard of cosmetic procedures such as a face or neck lift, and many patients have heard of Botox. These are both great choices for patients who want to minimize the look of fine lines and winkles on the face and neck area. For others, there is a procedure known as fat transfer that can be exceedingly helpful. As we age, our skin sags and loses collagen and elastin. This type of surgery takes fat from an area of a person’s body, and places it in an area that actually needs the fat. Here at the Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery, we offer fat transfer cosmetic surgery in Olympia so that our patients have access to any procedure that helps them look younger and fresher.
Fat transfer procedures are performed in three steps. First, the patient undergoes a liposuction procedure. Many patients have heard of liposuction to remove fat from the body, and that is still its purpose in this procedure. The doctor will take fatty deposits from areas that have an abundance, such as the buttocks, thighs, or abdominal region. The patient then undergoes fat grafting followed by fat injections.
This procedure does require some type of anesthesia for the liposuction procedure. Here at Bel-Red, we offer both twilight sedation and full anesthesia. Doctor and patient can decide during a consult what is best for them. This procedure also requires some recovery time.
