Fat Transfer


fat transfer is the transplanting of fat from one part of the body to another. Fat transfers correct the loss of subcutaneous fat that is a part of the aging process.* It’s also used to fill in depressions and dimpling caused by scars (such as acne pitting). We harvest fat from areas where it is plentiful, purify it and re-inject it where it is needed (usually the face or the back of the hands). Because the fat comes from your own body, there is no risk of rejection or immune reaction.*
