Facial Fat Transfer
Achieve a fuller youthful appearance with fat grafting to your cheeks, lips, chin, temporal hollows using your own fat which is long lasting. The risks are similar to those of using fillers which are temporary. Small areas can be performed in our office under local anesthetic. Fat is aspirated with small instruments and re-injected.
Buttock augmentation can be performed with implants or most commonly with fat transfer also known as a “Brazilian But Lift. This procedure contours the waistline using liposuction. The fat is then filtered and transferred to augment the size and shape of the buttocks. This is a safe procedure since the patients own tissue is used. Patient desires are taken into consideration when shaping this area and fully reviewed during consultation.
Instead of using implants Dr. Sayeed can transfer fat obtained from liposuction to the breast for a small to moderate size augmentation. In patients who have undergone mastectomy and reconstruction fat grafting can improve contour irregularities and will most likely be covered by insurance. This technique is also beneficial in patients who have asymmetric breast providing a natural augmentation as compared with implants.
Fat grafting into the hands adds volume and covers underlying blood vessels and tendons, which often appear due to aging. Skin may also appear thicker and more youthful.
