Fat Transfer Q & A

What is a fat transfer?

Fat transfer is a surgical procedure involving the removal of body fat and the subsequent placement of it in a more lacking area. As you well know, there are certain parts of your body that accumulate more fat than others and make your body look somewhat disproportionate. It’s easy to focus on these areas more than others because of their excess volume. 

On the other hand, there are certain areas of your face or body that don’t look as good with less volume. They might look sunken or thin, making you wish you could simply move the fat from the first area to the second. With fat transfer by Dr. Goodnight at Dr. Goodnight’s Everlasting Beauty, you can do just that. 

How does fat transfer work?

Dr. Goodnight performs fat transfers directly in his office while you’re numbed by local anesthesia. After a careful review of your goals and an inspection of the areas you’d like to target, he uses liposuction to remove fat cells from the area or areas that you’d like to reduce. 

Once Dr. Goodnight has removed your fat cells, he prepares them for injection by processing them and adding stem cell peptides to improve their chances of survival. You can expect your body to absorb some of the injected fat cells, so it’ll probably seem like Dr. Goodnight has injected more than necessary for the enhancement. 

What results can I get using fat transfer?

There are many potential results of fat transfer. The procedure is highly individualized, and Dr. Goodnight works with you to come up with a treatment plan for the body enhancement that you want. Some examples of popular procedures that use fat transfer are:

Brazilian butt lift

The Brazilian butt lift is one of the most sought-after kinds of fat transfer available. To give you the perky, full buttocks you want, Dr. Goodnight helps you select an area from which to remove fat, like your abdomen or love handles. He processes the fat and injects it into your buttocks to enhance your lower body curves.

Dream lift

The dream lift is a fat grafting procedure for facial enhancement. Dr. Goodnight removes fat from your chin and neck and strategically places it in your cheeks, temples, lips, and other parts of your face that need a youthful boost.
