The Accetta Institute of Cosmetic Surgery offers a variety of Natural Fat Transfer procedures to help you achieve the look you’ve always wanted.
Your Fat is Your Personal Fountain of Youth
Fat, hated by so many men and women, is actually the body’s natural fountain of youth. Having a healthy amount of body fat keeps us healthy and looking young. Unfortunately, even with diet and exercise, as we age, fat settles in unwanted areas such as the hips, buttocks, thighs, and waist and becomes difficult to get rid of.
Areas Treated With Fat Transfer
The fat grafting process can be used to treat a variety of areas on the body. The most common place treated with fat transfer are the breasts. Known as natural breast augmentation, Dr. Accetta removes fat from lower areas of the body and then injects it into the breast to increase both size and volume. Another common area to have treated is the buttocks. The fat transfer procedure is the best option for men and women who want to increase the shape or roundness of their buttocks.
Other areas of the body that can be treated with fat grafting are the face including the lips and cheeks, as well as the hands. Compared to other injectables such as Botox or dermal fillers, fat grafting yields more natural looking, longer lasting results.
Fat Transfer Procedure Basics
The process for fat grafting takes place in two simple steps. First, the fat is harvested using an advanced liposuction technique. The fat must be extracted as gently as possible so as to not disrupt or damage the fat cells. Having performed hundreds of procedures, Dr. Accetta has both the skill and expertise to remove cells meticulously, keeping the fat alive and ensuring the best results for his patients.
The harvested fat is then placed into syringes. After carefully marking the areas where the fat will be transferred, Dr. Accetta can then begin to slowly re-inject the fat into the desired areas. The goal is to not just “fill up” the treated area, but rather carefully place the fat into the tissue small increments at a time, so that the fat can attach itself into surrounding tissue with the greatest blood supply and nutrients, enabling it to flourish and survive.
Puregraft For Exceptional Results
Dr. Accetta enhances his fat transfer procedures by using the Puregraft technique. With the Puregraft method of fat transfer, fat cells and regenerative cells are concentrated using a centrifuge. This technique creates a pure mixture of fat and stem cells. Unlike some techniques where the stem cells are artificially activated, the Puregraft technique simply increases the ratio of stem cells to fat, causing the body to naturally activate the stem cells and promote faster healing and better results.
This highly advanced Puregraft technique requires great skill and knowledge. Specialized filters are used in this procedure to remove excess fluid, debris, broken fat cells and other unusable materials in order to provide the purest concentration of fat and stem cells possible. The Puregraft procedure is proven to result in significantly higher fat volume and maintenance, taking away perviously inconsistent results.
