Correct ... Contour ... Add Volume & Revive
The Terms: Fat Transfer - Fat Injections - Autologous Fat Transfer -
All refer to the process of taking fat from an unwanted area/areas of your body and re-injecting purified adipose fat tissues into another area/areas of your body.
The goal of any fat transfer procedure is to add fullness to the area which receives the fat grafts. Fat injections are commonly made to the face, lips, buttocks or hands. With the face, fat can be transferred to the cheeks, nasolabial folds, jawline, and the lower eye area.
This safe, long-lasting, well-tolerated procedure produces natural-looking results.

Hand RejuvenationPlumping Up
Fat grafting into your hands is effective for adding volume, “plumping up” wrinkled areas, covering underlying vessels and tendons and improving the quality of your skin over time.
Buttock AugmentationFuller & Rounded
Many people who desire a fuller, more rounded buttock will opt for a “Brazilian Butt Lift”, which uses fat transfer to provide a more curvaceous buttock without the use of an implant.
Breast AugmentationModest Increase
Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer is for you if you desire a modest increase in breast size and your breasts already have a nice shape and good skin tone. If you have poor skin, sagging breasts, or want a significant increase in breast size, breast augmentation with fat transfer is not for you.
