What Areas of the Body Can Benefit from a Fat Transfer?

By: Dr. Angelo Cuzalina


Fat transfer, also known as fat grafting, is a popular body contouring treatment that involves relocating fat from one area of the body to another. This innovative procedure can enhance your appearance by adding volume to areas that may have lost fullness due to aging, weight loss, or other reasons. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Angelo Cuzalina and his dedicated team of surgeons at Tulsa Surgical Arts are experienced in fat transfer surgery in Tulsa, OK, providing patients with natural-looking and long-lasting results. This technique improves the aesthetic appeal of certain areas and benefits the donor site by slimming and reshaping it.

Can fat transfer be used on the face?

Absolutely! The face is one of the most common areas to benefit from fat transfer. Our faces naturally lose volume as we age, leading to a sunken or hollow appearance. Fat grafting can restore this lost volume in areas such as the cheeks, under the eyes, and around the lips, creating a more youthful and refreshed look. Dr. Cuzalina utilizes this technique to help patients achieve a smoother facial contour without the need for synthetic fillers or implants.

What about enhancing the breasts and buttocks?

Fat transfer surgery is also highly effective for enhancing the breasts and buttocks, providing a natural alternative to implants. For those seeking a modest increase in breast size or a more natural look and feel, fat grafting to the breasts can be an excellent option. Similarly, a fat transfer to the buttocks, often referred to as a Brazilian butt lift, can create more voluptuous curves, improving the shape and size of the buttocks. Dr. Cuzalina's experience in fat relocation surgery ensures that patients receive personalized treatment plans for achieving their desired outcomes.
