No procedure is more easily tolerated than enhancing the face or body with the use of your own natural fat.
Performing fat transfer involves harvesting fat from a body area with excess fat, preparing it, and injecting the purified fat into another area of face or body. The procedure requires Dr. Tanna to make a small incision at the area of fat excess. These donor sites can include the abdomen, love-handle area, or thigh region.
As it is necessary to harvest fat, it has the added benefit of producing a slimming effect on an area of your body with excess fat, such as hips, thighs, or love handles. The harvested fat is purified and re-injected to area requiring volume enhancement (recipient site).
The procedure is exceptionally safe, as your body easily accepts your own cells, and the procedure does not involve any risk of rejection of a foreign substance such as a synthetic filler or implant. Not all the transferred fat will survive, but those viable cells that do remain will have a permanent result.
