What is Fat Transfer?

A fat transfer is a minimally invasive procedure where fat is redistributed from one area of the body—such as the arms or thighs—to act as a filler for another area, such as the breasts or buttocks. Fat transfers have the benefit of removing unwanted fat and harvesting it to add volume and fullness to a more desired area. These procedures are a safe and effective alternative for patients who don’t want to implant foreign materials, such as silicone or saline implants, into their bodies. 

At PureSculpting in Tampa and Jacksonville, our plastic surgeons use our revolutionary LipoSculpting procedure to complete fat transfers, rather than traditional liposuction. This vibration-supported method allows us to enlarge and shape your breasts or buttocks, and eliminate stubborn fat deposits without any cuts or tears to your skin. Keep reading to learn more about the fat transfer procedure, recovery time, and whether this procedure may be right for you.

How Does Fat Transfer Work?

Our approach to fat transfer can give more volume and fullness to your breasts or buttocks without the need for surgery, unlike traditional cosmetic procedures. 

First, we administer vibration energy with our LipoSculpting liposuction device to separate and break down fat cells in targeted areas of the body, such as the stomach, hips, or arms. Next, the fat cells are purified, which ensures a safer, more predictable outcome, and then transferred to a new area of the body to act as a filler. 

Because our fat transfer procedure uses your body’s natural fat cells instead of a foreign material like a silicone or saline implant, there is less likelihood of significant swelling or your body rejecting the filler. The recovery time for natural fat transfer is also much faster than with breast augmentation or Brazilian butt lift (BBL) surgery

What is the Fat Transfer Procedure?

During your initial consultation with your plastic surgeon in Tampa or Jacksonville, you’ll determine which areas of your body you’ll take fat from and where it will be transferred, such as the arms to breasts or belly to buttocks. 

Before beginning the procedure, your plastic surgeon will apply a localized anesthetic to the areas where fat will be taken from to reduce any discomfort. Then, using our LipoSculpting liposuction device, the plastic surgeon will apply rapid vibration to the targeted areas to break up and separate the fat cell deposits. 

Next, the removed fat cells undergo a purification process to ensure only healthy fat tissue remains. Lastly, these healthy fat cells are transferred into flatter or more hollow areas of the breasts or buttocks to create your desired volume, fullness, and shape.

What Areas of the Body Can Be Treated with Fat Transfer?

Fat transfer is typically used to add volume and fullness to the breasts, buttocks, or both. The fat cells used to fill these areas can be taken from several areas of the body, including the abdomen, hips, and arms.

The best areas of your body to transfer fat from depends on your body type and cosmetic goals. Your plastic surgeon will make recommendations during your consultation.  

How Much Does Fat Transfer Cost?

Fat transfer prices vary based on what area of the body the fat is being transferred to. In Jacksonville and Tampa, FL, fat transfer procedures start at $1500.  

What is the Fat Transfer Recovery Process?

Unlike breast implants, butt implants, or Brazilian butt lift surgery—all of which typically require a lengthy recovery period—the recovery period for fat transfer is only a few days. Some plastic surgery patients who undergo breast augmentation or BBL are restricted from activities such as lifting objects or exercising for up to 6 weeks. 

However, the average fat transfer patient is able to resume normal activities within a week. During recovery, you may experience minimal swelling or tenderness at the site of the fat transfer. After buttock enhancement, you may find it helpful to sit on a donut pillow if you experience soreness. For breast enhancement, it may be helpful to wear a protective bra for a few days before switching to a soft bra. 

Every patient’s recovery time is unique. The best way to heal quickly after a fat transfer is to closely follow the post-procedure care instructions we provide.

Who is a Candidate for Fat Transfer?

Adults of all ages can be candidates for fat transfer. In general, a potential fat transfer candidate is anyone who is unhappy with the size, shape, or contour of their breasts or buttocks. 

Ideal candidates also have enough body fat in other areas of the body to use for the procedure, are in good overall health (and preferably non-smokers), and have realistic expectations about what a fat transfer can accomplish for them.

What are Fat Transfer Results?

The results of your fat transfer procedure will be visible almost immediately, including slimness in the donor area and additional volume in the breasts or buttocks. 

The final results of your fat transfer will be noticeable once any swelling goes away and the transferred fat settles into its final shape. Because the fat transfer process uses your body’s own fatty tissue, this form of breast or butt augmentation tends to look and feel more natural than implants.

Additional Fat Transfer FAQs

How long do fat transfers last?

The results of a fat transfer can last for years if performed by an experienced plastic surgeon, like those at our Jacksonville and Tampa locations. 

While it’s normal for some of the fat that was transferred to the breasts or buttocks to be reabsorbed into the body over time, a skilled plastic surgeon will anticipate this and redistribute the fat cells in a way that creates lasting results.  

Are fat transfers safer than implants?

Because fat transfers use the body’s natural fat tissue as a filler—instead of a foreign material like a silicone or saline implant—there is less risk of infection or the body rejecting the filler. 

Can belly fat transfer to breasts?

Assuming there is enough fat available in the abdomen, belly fat can be transferred to the breasts during a fat transfer. This is a common procedure for patients who want a slimmer waist and fuller breasts.

How much fat do you need for a transfer?

A fat transfer requires enough fat to be purified and redistributed to create the desired volume and shape in the breasts or buttocks. During your consultation, your plastic surgeon can help identify the best areas on the body to transfer fat from, such as the abdomen, hips, and arms.
