What You Should Know About the Benefits of Fat Transfer

Yesterday we celebrated Thanksgiving. Like most Americans you likely had a fun day with family, watched some football, and ate too much at your Thanksgiving dinner. Don’t worry about it because it’s an annual tradition.

Many men and women use the Thanksgiving holiday to begin thinking about their New Year’s resolution. The #1 New Year’s resolution for Americans in 2014 was to lose weight. That’s not surprising since we’re always trying to drop some pounds, get in better physical shape and become more fit. Gym memberships, exercise equipment and expensive weight loss programs are just a few of the many ways Americans will spend money this holiday season in hopes of losing weight and looking better.

You can do those things, but you should know about a much smarter way to go. There are many benefits to having a Fat Transfer from Dr. Michael W. Gray of the Michigan Cosmetic Surgery Center and Skin Deep Spa in West Bloomfield, Michigan — just outside of Detroit. In fact, Dr. Gray’s Fat Transfer is one of the best kept secrets to looking better this holiday season — without the stress of fad diet plans or going to the gym every day.

Dr. Michael Gray - Cosmetic Surgeon

“Your fat is a valuable asset,” Dr. Michael Gray explains. “Most people don’t realize that their fat can be transferred to any part of the body where a fuller appearance is desired. Fat can restore volume where volume has been lost and add to areas where more volume is desired.”

The buttocks, cheeks, lips, nasal folds and hands are the most common areas that Dr. Gray can transfer fat to. Additionally, Dr. Gray can transfer fat to depressions in the body that were caused by trauma, cellulite, surgical or genetic problems.

The procedure is simple. Dr. Gray will first extract fat from your body and then prepare it for transfer. After the first transfer, excess fat is cryogenically stored for half a year. By storing the fat and using it as needed, you won’t have to have any more procedures to obtain fat. Instead, you’ll just come in for an injection every 6 weeks and then stop when satisfied. Usually patients keep half of the fat that is transferred and can continue to get injections until they are satisfied with the results or until all fat is used. The best part is the recovery is simple. There are no restrictions. Warm compresses or heating pads are used to increase blood flow and oxygen to the area.
