Fat Grafting/ Beautifill Philadelphia
Fat Grafting is a proven technique that involves removing fat from one area of your body with liposuction, purifying it, and then transferring it to another area of your body. The Alma Beautifill laser assisted liposuction system allows Dr. Hoffman, to do fat grafting in the office under local anesthesia. Patients are awake as fat is taken from one part of their body and transferred to another locations. The most common locations are the face and lips, breasts, and buttocks.
The Benefits of Fat Grafting
The use of your own fat to enhance size, shape and lifted appearance of your derriere, breast, or, face, or body has several important benefits. Not only will your body appear more sculpted and trim, with unwanted fat deposits reduced, your body will not reject your own fat, and the process is safe and effective.
Every person is unique in the look that they way, and the amount of excess fat present on the body that allows for fat transfer. This procedure requires the patient have sufficient fatty deposits , which even the thinnest of patients normally have.

Body Contouring with Fat Grafting
The extracted fat is prepared by the plastic surgeon and is then injected into your buttocks, face, body, or breasts. This transferred fat enances your body in areas it was deficient, filling out flat areas and giving a lifted appearance to your chosen body part. Skin surface contour irregularites can be corrected in the same procedure. A powerful added benefit of the fat grafting procedures is that you will benefit from the liposuction to slim and trim excess fat from other areas of your body for a sculpting effect.

Fat Grafting Q&A
What is a fat injection?
Answer: A fat injection or fat transfer, is when fat is taken from one part of the body and placed in a different part of the body. Liposuction is used to harvest the fat, and then it can be injected into the face, breast, buttock, or anywhere else that you want more volume. About 70 % of the fat survives the transfer and will be a permanent augmentation.
I have an interest in breast augmentation but transferring fat seems more natural. Still possible for a fuller breast and cup size?
Answer: Great question. Fat grafting can be used alone or in conjunction with breast augmentation to give superior results.
During a consultation, we determine how much fuller you want your breasts. In my opinion, smaller augmentations are best done by fat grafting. If you want more volume replaced- than an implant is your best option. The procedures can be combined in the appropriate patients. This allows the implants edges to be hidden further or correct and pre-existing contour deformities that are not helped by the breast augmentation.
