    What is Fat Transfer Surgery?

    Fat transfer, also known as fat grafting, can add volume to areas of the face, breasts, hands, buttocks, and other body parts. During a fat transfer procedure, Dr. Vitenas will perform liposuction to remove fat tissue from a site like the thighs or abdomen. This fat is processed to isolate the healthy fat cells, which are then carefully injected into the desired areas. The transferred fat cells become incorporated into the tissue permanently, adding natural-looking volume and smoothing out wrinkles, dimples, and contours.

    Fat Transfer Procedure

    The fat transfer procedure begins with a consultation with Dr. Vitenas, who will assess your medical history, discuss your aesthetic goals, and create a customized treatment plan. On the day of the procedure, anesthesia is administered to ensure your comfort. Dr. Vitenas then performs liposuction to harvest fat from the designated donor site.
    The harvested fat is purified and prepared for injection. Using a syringe, the processed fat is then carefully injected into the treatment area to add volume and enhance contour. The entire procedure typically takes one to four hours, depending on the volume of fat being transferred and the size of the treatment area.

    Houston Fat Transfer Cost

    The cost of a fat transfer procedure in Houston, TX, starts around $4,500 but can vary significantly based on each patient’s specific treatment plan. This variation is due to the procedure encompassing two distinct stages:

    1. Liposuction for harvesting fat from the donor site.
    2. The actual fat grafting process to add volume and shape to the target area.

    Factors influencing the cost include the treated area’s size, the volume of fat transferred, and the procedure’s complexity.

    It’s vital to understand that most health insurance plans do not cover cosmetic procedures like fat transfer, but financing options are often available to help manage the costs.

    Recovery and Healing Process

    Post-procedure, patients may experience minor discomfort, swelling, and bruising at the treatment and harvest sites. However, these symptoms usually subside within a few days. Most patients can return to work the day after the procedure, with full recovery typically occurring within one to four weeks. It’s important for patients to follow Dr. Vitenas’s post-operative care instructions to ensure a smooth healing process and optimal results.

    Fat Transfer Results

    The results of a fat transfer procedure are often noticeable immediately after the procedure, with the treated area appearing more voluminous and contoured. As the swelling subsides over the course of a few weeks, the final results begin to take shape. The transferred fat cells will continue to thrive in their new location, providing long-lasting results that can last for years.

    However, it’s important to understand that the results can change slightly over time due to factors like aging and gravity. The goal of a fat transfer procedure is to achieve natural-looking results that enhance your existing features and restore volume to areas that have experienced volume loss. Regular follow-up appointments with Dr. Vitenas will ensure that the results are maintained, and any necessary adjustments are made.
