Elements of a Fat Transfer and Injections Treatment
Prior to your treatment, Dr. Wallace will discuss your goals for the procedure. He will develop a plan including from where to remove fat and precisely where to inject it.
The treatment takes place in three parts. First, fat is harvested from the body using liposuction. The most common sites used include the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. This may improve the contours of those areas.
Next, the tissue is separated to isolate the fat cells from other components. Finally, the cells are injected into the treatment area using a very fine needle. Dr. Wallace precisely chooses each injection location and the amount to be injected for optimal results.
