For some people, the problem isn’t that they have too much body fat so much as they have it in the wrong places. Maybe you’d love to have larger breasts or firmer buttocks, but all that volume is in your thighs instead. Luckily, there’s a way to solve both issues at once: a Belle Medical natural Fat Transfer.
What Is Fat Transfer?
A Fat Transfer procedure from Belle Medical is the safest and natural way to enhance parts of your body that you feel need more shape and volume. Unlike other augmentation procedures that rely on implants and other foreign substances, Fat Transfers use nothing but your own body fat, which we’ll remove from an area where you have excess weight using HD Body Sculpting technology. You won’t have to put anything unnatural into your body—we’ll just redesign the body you already have.
Nearly anyone with sufficient body fat to draw from can benefit from a Fat Transfer treatment. Women typically ask for breast augmentation and Brazilian butt lifts to achieve a curvier figure, while men prefer to sculpt a masculine physique by enhancing their buttocks, calves, pecs, and parts of their face.
How Do Fat Transfers Work?
A natural Fat Transfer starts with HD Body Sculpting. In a minimally invasive process that involves no cutting, ripping, cooling, or tearing, we’ll break down the fat in your problem areas using gentle vibrations and, once it’s been liquefied, remove it from your body with suction technology.
Next, we’ll put your body fat into a centrifuge to separate your healthy fat cells from the damaged ones, purifying the fat that will be used in your transfer. Once purified, the healthy fat will be injected into your Fat Transfer treatment site, allowing us to sculpt the area to your desired shape once it’s been filled in. Unlike implants or other foreign objects, your transferred fat cells will adapt to the new part of your body, creating more natural results and aging normally over time.
We expect about 70% of the fat cells transferred to remain viable, which means 30% will not. To make up for this, we’ll initially transfer more fat than is necessary to achieve your desired shape, and your results may look bigger at first than you wanted. Eventually, your body will naturally absorb the excess 30% of fat cells and process them through your lymphatic system. After a relatively short and comfortable healing period, you will be left with your intended results as your body adapts to the changes.
Which Parts of the Body Are Most Commonly Treated With a Fat Transfer?
These are the areas our patients most frequently choose to enhance via Fat Transfer:
The following areas are commonly treated with HD Body Sculpting, serving as sources of fat for the transfer procedure:
- Lower abdomen
- Upper abdomen
- Flanks/love handles
- Banana fold
- Suprapubic area
How Long Does Fat Transfer Last?
The results of a natural Fat Transfer are permanent, as is the fat loss from the HD Body Sculpting portion of the procedure. However, maintaining a healthy lifestyle is the best way to ensure that you hold onto the best results and your ideal appearance over time. We recommend making good dietary choices and adopting a regular exercise routine so you can stay fit and make the most of your body transformation.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Fat Transfer?
If there are parts of your body that you feel are too small, shapeless, hollow, or asymmetrical, a Fat Transfer treatment may help you regain your confidence. In order to receive one, however, you must have enough fat to spare. The procedure is best suited to those with stubborn areas of fat that won’t go away even with diligent dieting and exercise.
Anyone considering an HD Body Sculpting and Fat Transfer treatment should ideally be in good health and at a stable weight. These treatments are not meant to cure obesity—however, debulking through HD Body Sculpting can help someone with an obese body type improve their overall appearance and confidence, often kickstarting a renewed love for their body and greater efforts to lead a healthy lifestyle.
Women should wait to receive a procedure if they’re pregnant or currently breastfeeding. Lastly, although our treatments require minimal recovery time, prospective patients should still make sure they’ll be able to set aside a day or two for rest before jumping right back into their normal routines.
How Much Is a Fat Transfer Going to Cost?
The price for a natural Fat Transfer will likely be different for each individual patient depending on the number of areas they’d like treated, as well as the size of these areas. During your free consultation to determine whether or not you’re a good candidate, a Belle Medical professional will give you an estimate of how much your Fat Transfer might cost. We offer different payment plans and financing options to make sure you can manage the cost of your procedure with your particular budget.
