A fat transfer procedure involves moving excess fat from one area to another, typically in places affected by volume loss. Rao Plastic & Hand Surgery in Tuscon, AZ can improve your body shape and proportions so you can finally have your dream body.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Arun Rao can explain how a fat transfer works and what to expect during a consultation. Here is some more information about our exciting fat transfer procedure.
What causes fat accumulation?
Various factors contribute to fat accumulation, including genetics, hormones, diet, and exercise habits. It can be difficult for some people to lose excess fat regardless of how healthy they eat or how often they go to the gym. Areas resistant to diet and exercise include the stomach, hips, buttocks, and thighs.
Volume loss is another common but frustrating occurrence as we age. This can lead to a lack of contour and definition in the face, breasts, and other areas. Others struggle with sagging skin. A fat transfer can help restore volume and improve the contour of these areas.

What is the fat transfer procedure like?
A fat transfer is usually performed as an outpatient procedure. The fat is harvested from a donor area, purified, and administered to the target areas.

Our team also works hard to ensure you are comfortable during and after your procedure.
