What is Fat Transfer?
Fat transfer is a surgical procedure which removes excess fat from one area of the body placing it into another area that needs volume. The harvested fat is carefully removed, purified and refined and then used to round out areas that have lost volume due to age, weight loss or illness. The fat transfer technique is used to sculpt the face, buttocks or to repair indentations and flaws that have resulted from unsatisfactory liposuction in the past. Fat transfer is very much in demand as natural filler, replacing chemical dermal fillers in many cases.
For many patients this has a two-fold benefit; it removes unsightly excess fat from the abdomen, thighs or buttocks while creating round youthful curves in the face, breasts or buttocks. His attention to detail combined with his artistic perception creates beautiful natural results in patients of all ages.
Liposuction procedures require not only a high degree of technical expertise; they require a superior understanding of the aesthetics of a human form. The procedure is commonly referred to as liposculpture due to the fact the surgeon is actually sculpting more appealing curves by removing only the excess fat from precise areas in such a way that preserves the natural flow of one part of the body to the other. Overly aggressive removal results in indentations and depressions in the tissue which look unappealing and unnatural.
Patients who are considering this procedure are wise to do their research so they choose a surgeon with expertise and experience. Dr. Amron encourages all of his prospective patients to do their research thoroughly before committing to fat transfer or any liposuction procedures.
The best result comes from experienced liposuction surgeons who have the artistic eye necessary deliver the best results.

Fat Transfer Overview and Benefits
In performing fat transfer, it’s necessary to first remove fat from another part of the body, usually the thighs or buttocks. This is done using a precise form of liposuction that removes the fat while still preserving it as much as possible. During this process, Dr. Amron does not simply harvest fat for the fat transfer. Instead, he understands that this liposuction will create an effect on the harvest site. Therefore, this liposuction is done with the same level of precision and care as any other liposuction procedure. Dr. Amron’s goal is always to improve contours and proportions, and to create the best results for his patients.
Because a patient’s own fat is used, there is zero chance of allergic reactions, unlike artificial dermal fillers. Further, because live fat is being transferred, it has the potential to permanently establish itself in the treatment area. All in all, using the body’s own fat is one of the best approaches to deliver volume and smooth texture.
- To summarize, the benefits of fat transfer include:
- Minimally invasive outpatient procedure, allowing you to resume your daily activities almost immediately
- Minimal discomfort
- Done under local anesthetic
- Can produce permanent results
- Effective, natural body contouring
Facial Fat Transfer
Because the face has so many unique areas that can benefit from fat injections, it is considered an entire category of fat transfer treatment areas.
- In the face, fat transfer can be used to correct:
- Nasolabial folds (smile lines)
- Bags under the eyes
- Saggy jowls
- Crow’s feet
- Vertical frown lines between the eyebrows
- Fine lines and wrinkles throughout the face
In performing facial fat transfer, Dr. Amron uses an extremely fine needle to precisely inject fat into specific parts of the face. In fact, this needle is so fine that facial fat transfer is considered a non-invasive procedure. With Dr. Amron’s total understanding of how facial contours are formed, each injection is done with a purpose to bring about a balance, symmetry and proportion to your entire face.
