Autologous Fat Fransfers (AFT)
As we age, we lose volume in our faces and portions of our body. These losses result in wrinkles and a sunken or droopy appearance which causes us to look older than we really are. For those interested in defying the signs of aging on the face/hands or enhancing the feminine outline of the breasts or buttocks, Autologous Fat Transfer (AFT) can be a life changing experience. The procedure of harvesting, processing and injecting the fat is very meticulous and detailed; however, if done properly by a trained Board Certified Plastic & Reconstructive surgeon, like Dr. Theodore Lazzaro, the results are incredible.
Autologous Fat Transfer (AFT) is the most recent and exciting technique in Plastic Surgery in the past decade. It gives you two benefits
removing unwanted fat from areas
Placing that fat into desired areas of enhancement
Imagine removing fat from the abdomen, hips or thighs and then using that same fat to enhance your face, breasts or buttocks. This procedure can be used to rebuild a breast lost to mastectomy after breast cancer, to reshape breast contours lost to pregnancy or aging, or to create a buttock that never was or has slowly lost its shape with time (Brazilian Butt Lift).
What is a fat transfer?
This is a revolutionary procedure of taking excess fat from unwanted areas of the body and transferring it to areas that are volume deficient such as the face, hands, breasts or buttocks.
The fat is first removed from the donor site, which also enhances the body’s contour. The fat is then processed to obtain the purest fat rich in growth factor stem cells. This processed fat is then injected with precision (in small quantities) to allow the fat to vascularize. The procedure can range from one to four hours depending on the area(s) to be treated. The satisfaction rate is extremely high and the results are incredible.
