Fat transfer has been a hot topic the past few years and because of that a lot of surgeons have tried to perform the procedure without proper training or experience. When fat grafting was first being performed many surgeons did not appreciate the fine and subtle techniques that are needed to achieve the results that patient’s desire.
Also like any new topic I think people used it as an answer to any problem and thought that it could replace implants and magically fix any problem. As with any new product or technique it has settled down to a realistic procedure that has its place in aesthetic surgery.
I do think for patients to get the results they are looking for they need to have the procedure done by an experienced board certified plastic surgeon that performs a tremendous amount of fat transfer.
This is important because the surgeon will be able to be realistic with you about the results that are possible from fat transfer and tell you whether you are a good candidate for the procedure or not.
A surgeon that performs a lot of these procedures also has a system in place that allows him or her to process the fat and shape the body in the best possible way.
I would advise you to see a board certified plastic surgeon that performs a lot of fat transfer procedures. In my practice the Brazilian Butt Lift is one of the procedures where patients are extremely happy after surgery.
I hope this helps.
