The surprising ways that fat can improve your appearance

Body Contouring | Bay Area Laser Surgery CenterThe idea is the genius: extracting fat from areas where it’s not wanted, such as the abdomen and thighs, and transferring it to areas where it can improve your appearance, such as the:

  • Buttocks
  • Breasts
  • Face
  • Hands

Fat transfer isn’t just an idea, but a reality. Fat cells can be removed from unwanted areas and re-injected beneath the skin in many areas with desirable outcomes. Where could your fat do the best work for your appearance?

Your hands

Many patients are unhappy with their hands for various reasons, including:

  • Wrinkles
  • Boniness
  • Large veins
  • Large tendons
  • Grooves
  • Sunspots

Your hands can look younger using dermal fillers and laser treatments, but the longer lasting method for rejuvenating them can be fat transfer, which can last for years.

Your face

Facial fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm are popular and effective products for rejuvenating the face and giving you back a more youthful appearance. Fat transfer can also be used to improve the appearance of practically every part of the face and can have longer lasting results. Fat transfer can be used to improve:

  • Sunken areas beneath the eyes
  • Deep wrinkles next to the mouth (laugh lines)
  • Forehead creases
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Chin profile

Your lips

Injectable facial fillers can be used to augment the lips, improving and even changing their shape. Fat from other areas of your body can also be used, worked into the upper and lower lips to plump them up in a natural way that can be sustainable.

Your buttocks


Women who wish to achieve a rounder more defined buttocks can choose to have implants, and many are choosing the Brazilian Butt Lift, which uses fat injections to give a shapelier rear end.

Your breasts

Fat grafting to enlarge the breasts can be done for cosmetic improvement as well as to improve appearance following a mastectomy, breast implant problems or other breast issues related to symmetry and appearance. Fat transfer can produce attractive and natural-looking augmentation results.
