Your body fat transfer procedure will be customized just for you and a number of factors will impact your final results, including your specific goals, unique anatomy and retention of transferred fat.
Since fat grafting uses your own living fat cells, up to approximately 40 percent may be naturally absorbed by the body when they are moved to a new location. To ensure your aesthetic goals are met, Dr. Huettner compensates for this anticipated fat loss while her skill and expertise help to increase overall survivability. Over the next three to six months, your final results will begin to develop and reveal contour improvements, a more flattering silhouette and a permanent volume boost in treated areas.
Although you may need more than one treatment to achieve your desired outcome, your results will be permanent once the transferred fat has settled and integrated into the surrounding tissues.
No maintenance treatments will be required, but it will be important to maintain a stable weight to preserve your results, as transferred fat is susceptible to weight gain and loss.
