Many areas of the body can be smoothed, augmented and reshaped, using existing fat stores. Patients can achieve new contours or greater symmetry by transferring natural fat from one part of the body to another more desirable location. Frequently, patients request a transfer of fat from thighs or buttocks to the breasts or face.
Drs. Thomas and Jeffries perform these procedures at the office or surgical center on an outpatient basis. Often, results are immediately visible accompanied by some swelling and bruising. Moderate normal activity can usually be resumed after one week.
