Who Should Consider Liposuction and Fat Transfer?

By: Dr. Matthew Adam Graham


Natural aging can cause facial sagging and significant loss of volume, resulting in a fatigued, sallow appearance. However, liposuction and fat transfer can effectively refill areas of volume loss for a younger, more vibrant appearance while reducing fat in problem areas. If you maintain a healthy body weight and are seeking a refreshed appearance but want to avoid facial fillers, then liposuction and fat transfer might be the ideal choice.

If you would like to learn more about liposuction and fat transfer, then we suggest scheduling a consultation with Dr. Matthew Adam Graham at Wellspring Medical Spa & Aesthetics in Thomasville, GA. Dr. Graham will sit down with you to listen to your concerns and goals to create a fully customized treatment plan.

All about liposuction with fat transfer

Dr. Graham combines laser-assisted liposuction with fat transfer using Accent Prime™ by Alma Lasers. The nonsurgical cosmetic procedure uses laser light to penetrate the skin’s layers and effectively detach fat tissue from areas like the stomach, upper thighs, and flanks.

The removed and preserved fat is then transferred to target areas on the face or other parts of the body to restore volume loss for more youthful fullness. Patients can use the fat to enhance areas around the nose, cheeks, eyes, lips, and mouth. Dr. Graham can also use the fat to transfer to the breasts and buttocks for full body contouring results. You can have the hourglass figure that you have been dreaming about.

Is liposuction with fat transfer right for me?

Do you maintain a healthy body weight but have noticed areas of your face that look sunken or lax? If so, then liposuction with fat transfer might be an ideal option to restore lost volume to your problem areas. Your own fat is used to help create fullness. Many people who do not want to use dermal fillers opt for liposuction with fat transfer to help achieve a more youthful appearance.

Benefits of liposuction with fat transfer include:

  • Minimally invasive
  • Little downtime needed
  • Considered a safe cosmetic procedure
  • Provides natural-looking results
  • Fully personalized treatment

Undergoing liposuction with fat transfer

It will take Dr. Graham at Wellspring Medical Spa & Aesthetics in Thomasville, GA about 4 – 5 hours to carry out liposuction with fat transfer. The area is thoroughly cleaned. Prior to starting the procedure, topical anesthesia is applied. A small laser device is then inserted into the treatment area. Using the device, he will remove unwanted fat. The fat then undergoes processing before reinjection.

The harvested fat is then reinjected in predetermined areas such as the lips, breasts, cheeks, or buttocks to create a natural-looking volume.

Following the procedure, most patients experience only slight bruising and swelling and almost immediately notice results from the procedure, which will only become more pronounced as the bruising and swelling eases.
