Renton Fat Transfer Cosmetic Surgery
Many patients considering plastic surgery have heard of liposuction, but most patients equate it with a fat reduction surgery that can help patients look younger and slimmer. In reality, liposuction can be used for other reasons. Patients that want to minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles may have heard of a facelift or eyelid lift, or Botox, but may not have heard of a procedure known as fat transfer. Here at the Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery, we offer fat transfer cosmetic surgery in Renton so that our patients have access to any procedure that helps them look and feel their best.
Fat transfer is a 3-part procedure that removes fat from one area of the body and places it in another. As we age, we lose collagen and elastin, especially in our face and neck area. Fat transfer allows the doctor to take fat by he way of a liposuction procedure form one area and place it in the face or neck. Body areas with extra fatty deposits are typically the abdomen, buttocks, or thighs. Then, the patient undergoes a fat grafting procedure followed by fat injection.
This is procedure that requires some recovery time, and also requires some type of anesthesia. During consult, doctor and patient can decide what is best for them. Here at our Bel-Red offices, we offer both full anesthesia and twilight sedation. It is only the liposuction portion of the procedure that requires sedation – the grafting and injection do not.
