Fat Transfer

Do You Wish You Could Move Fat From One Area of Your Body to Another?

For years women have been voicing their desires for a natural contouring option that would move fat from one area of their body and place it in another, such as their buttocks. Denver plastic surgeon Dr. Nick Slenkovich offers a long lasting, natural way to enhance your curves through fat transfer.

Fat transfer, or fat grafting, uses two plastic surgery procedures to enhance your curves using your body’s natural tissue. First liposuction is performed to gently remove fat cells from unwanted areas of the body, including the abdomen, lower back, hips or thighs. The harvested fat cells are gently prepared to increase the body’s ability to adopt the transferred cells. Once the fat is prepared, Dr. Slenkovich meticulously injects the fat cells directly into the desired area to achieve a smooth, natural-looking texture.

Areas of the body that are effectively treated with fat transfer include:

Recovery time following a fat transfer procedure is dependent on the area treated.

Benefits of Fat Transfer

Fat transfer is a safe, effective cosmetic procedure that does not require implants or foreign materials. Fat transfers can have many advantages including:

  • Fat is completely natural substance that comes from your own body
  • Harvested fat cell are used to enhance your shape
  • The desired body part can be aesthetically sculpted for a natural shape
  • There are minimal incisions with this procedure, minimizing scarring
  • Fat transfer is a permanent procedure.

The amount of fullness that will result from the fat transfer procedure is largely dependent on the amount of existing tissue in the treated area, quality of the injected fat cells and the amount of blood flow to the area to nourish the injected cells. Results differ from patient-to-patient. During your consultation Dr. Slenkovich will discuss your options based on your body condition and will help guide you in the decision making process.
