Fat Transfer The most natural form of body contouring

One of the inevitable effects of aging is a loss of fat padding in the cheeks, lips, buttocks, breasts or hands.

This often imparts an appearance of hollowness and fatigue, and may make a client look even older than their years. With fat transfer - also called fat grafting or fat injection - donor cells from a more fat-plentiful area of the body such as the hips, belly or thighs are liposuctioned out and injected into the region that is lacking. The new fat cells are easily recognized and absorbed by the body, resulting in the fuller, plumper contours associated with youthfulness and restored vitality.

Benefits of fat transfer include

  • Very low risk of allergic reaction since the body's own cells are used
  • Effective for all skin types and textures
  • Great versatility
  • Excellent natural alternative to traditional implants and synthetic fillers
  • Long-lasting, permanent results
  • Fills in facial wrinkles, scars, folds and skin depressions
  • Can reverse signs of aging in the hands, lips, breasts and buttocks
  • Rapid recovery with minimal downtime of 1-2 days
  • Minimal scarring

How can I learn more about my fat transfer in Los Angeles?

The first step in the process is to meet with Dr. Lahijani for a private, complimentary consultation. Consultations take place at one of three convenient Los Angeles locations in Beverly Hills, Valencia or Palmdale. During this time, the doctor will examine you, review your medical records, answer questions and concerns, and create a personalized road map for your surgery. Patients who lack the donor fat necessary for transfer will be presented with a range of alternative options, including implants. Dr. Lahijani is extremely well versed with the full spectrum of augmentation techniques and is confident he can find the best solution for your needs.

Details of the procedure

Clients receiving fat transfer in Beverly Hills are given general or local anesthesia, depending on the doctor's recommendation. Surgery typically takes between 1 and 4 hours to complete.

During fat transfer surgery, minute incisions are made at the donor sites, through which the doctor can perform liposuction with a cannula. Once the donor fat has been harvested, it is purified and prepared for transfer. The doctor then injects the fat cells into their new home.

Recovery after fat transfer

The fat transfer procedure is known for quick recovery times and minimal side effects. Some bruising, swelling and discomfort may occur; however, these symptoms are generally short-lived and can be managed with pain medication prescribed by your doctor. Most clients can expect to return to work and their regular routines within a couple of days. Strenuous exercise can be reintroduced within 1-4 weeks, depending on the doctor's recommendation.

Schedule a Consultation

With four convenient office suites to choose from in Beverly Hills, Palmdale, Upland and Valencia, clients seeking rejuvenation can find the perfect location to suit their busy lifestyle. During your consultation, Dr. Lahijani will examine you, take down your medical history, review before and after photos, and create a personalized treatment plan customized to your body. If you are looking for a full body contouring makeover, the doctor can also give you information about additional procedures at this time, as one major benefit of combining treatments is less overall downtime for the patient.
