What is Fat Grafting?

Stubborn fat rolls that won't go away no matter how much time you spend in the gym are frustrating. When compounded by the effects of skin aging or volume loss in other areas of your body, the combined effect can make you feel worse about yourself.

Fat grafting is a surgical procedure with two distinct benefits. It involves liposuction to remove excess fat from one body part and then purification and injections to graft it to an area where you lack volume.

While implants and fillers remain a staple of Dr. Z's practice, fat transfer has a unique advantage in that it allows you to slim down and use your own natural fat for a permanent facial, buttocks, or hand augmentation.

Fat Transfer/Grafting Procedure

Your surgery will take place in Dr. Zuriarrain's private, state-of-the-art aesthetic institute, Zuri Plastic Surgery, located off US-1 across from the renowned South Miami Hospital. Depending on the extent of augmentation, you will undergo either local or general anesthesia. Dr. Z will apply tumescent fluid to the tissues and then extract the fat with liposuction. After purifying the fat cells in a centrifuge, he will inject the fat into the target site in thin strands.

Fat Transfer Recovery

The recovery time varies based on the amount of fat harvested and the number of areas treated. In general, you can expect some swelling and occasionally bruising. These effects should subside in a few days to weeks. Most fat transfer patients can return to work and social activities within a week.

Dr. Zuriarrain will instruct you to avoid strenuous activities, heavy lifting, smoking, and certain medications/supplements for up to six weeks. Buttock fat grafting requires that you avoid applying pressure to your buttocks as much as possible for two to three weeks. You may be asked to wear a compression garment in the liposuction area.

Fat Transfer Results

Your results will begin to appear after the initial swelling subsides. It takes approximately six to nine months for the newly transferred fat to establish a blood supply. During this time, it is normal and expected for some of the fat cells to die off. In most cases, up to 70 percent of the initial fat graft remains. The surviving fat graft is considered permanent. Avoid weight fluctuations to maintain your results long-term.
