It is important to recognize that for all medical procedures, including those performed at Imagen Body Sculpting, individual results and experiences may vary *.
Have you ever wondered if you could take a bit of fat from one place and move it to another? Fat is a living tissue and, as such, can be “transplanted” or “grafted” from one site to another. The biggest benefits of fat as a filler are that it is “autologous,” which means it comes from you, and that it is long lasting.
Fat is harvested using liposuction. At Imagen we use PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) to enrich our fat grafts and increase the survival of the fat cells. “PRP” contains growth factors as well as nutrients that seem to play an important role in the survival and maintenance of the transferred fat. Also, these growth factors and nutrients contribute to improvement of skin texture, healing and recovery.
Fat can be harvested from any area of the body and then transferred into any area of the body. The face, hands and buttocks are the most common sites for augmentation by fat transfer.
Fat can be used to replace lost volume and give a more youthful appearance. It can also be used to improve deep lines and rejuvenate skin texture.
Nothing shows your age like your hands. Young hands have a nice fullness and texture, but as we age that volume is lost. Fat transfer can restore that volume, providing a much more youthful look. Fat transfer is preferable to fillers in the hands because it is more cost effective for you and also gives a longer lasting, more natural look.
Some people have difficulty obtaining their desired results* in this area just using diet and exercise. Celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce have fueled a desire for a more round, fuller and higher looking backside. Men are no exception and also desire a more youthful, fuller appearance to their buttocks. Popularized as the “Brazilian Butt Lift,” fat grafting to the buttocks is one of Imagen’s most requested procedures.
