Fat Transfer For Volume Enhancement - Dr. Elan Singer Upper West Side NYC

Plump Up, Enhance and Revitalize Face and Body Areas

A Fat Transfer (also known as Fat Injections or Fat Grafting) uses your own fat to rejuvenate, plump, add volume and shape to the face, hands and body. Fat injections are safe, well tolerated and a great alternative to dermal fillers and implants.

As we age, our skin looses volume, elasticity and starts to wrinkle. Using your own fat, the body’s most valuable source of stem cells, have paved the way for a natural alternative to injected synthetic dermal fillers and implant surgery. If you're looking for a subtle volume enhancement to your face and/or a moderate enhancement to parts of your body, fat injections with Dr. Elan B. Singer may be the right volume enhancing choice for you.

How Does a Fat Transfer Procedure Work

The Fat Transfer Procedure removes unwanted fat from your body, via Liposuction, and re-implants it into other areas of the face, hands and body. The results of fat injections last 10 times longer (up to 10 years), when compared to dermal fillers, making a fat transfer procedure a viable rejuvenating and enhancement solution.

  • Breasts Augmentation with Fat Transfer - Fat transfer to the Breasts is a minimally-invasive treatment offering  a natural looking enhancement. It is a popular choice for women who do not want breast implants and are looking to add shape and volume to their chest, whilst removing stubborn pockets of fat elsewhere on the body.
  • Buttocks Augmentation with Fat Transfer - If your buttocks naturally lacks volume or definition, a Fat Transfer may be the right procedure to achieve a natural-looking curve and a more pronounced shape to your backside without using an implant.
  • Face Rejuvenation with Fat Transfer - Aging has its effects on everyone’s skin, as wrinkles start to appear, the face loses volume, elasticity and sagging occurs. Fat transfers to the face, also known as an (organic facelift) can restore age-related loss of volume and subtly smooth out wrinkles, without the need for dermal fillers.
  • Hand Rejuvenation with Fat Transfer - The popularity of hand rejuvenation has increased immensely. Fat injections to the Hands not only adds volume to the back of the hands and makes the tendons and bones less obvious, it also disguises visible veins. Unlike dermal fillers which need be repeated every 6-9 months, the injected fat remains in the hands permanently (as long as your weight is maintained).
