Fat Transfer + Fat Grafting Using Renuva®

In Melbourne, FL

Fat transfer uses your own body fat, harvested by liposuction from problem areas, to restore areas that have lost volume and fullness, diminishing lines, wrinkles, and other visible signs of aging.

Fat grafting with Renuva® off-the-shelf allograft adipose matrix avoids the need for liposuction, treats small-volume aesthetic irregularities, and can add volume to any volume-depleted area.  Dermatology + Plastic Surgery, led by double board-certified plastic surgeon Rebecca Novo, MD, and board-certified dermatologist Anita Saluja, MD, serving residents of Melbourne, Viera, Brevard County, and nearby communities in the Central Florida area, provides fat injections and fat grafting to restore volume lost with aging or surgery.

HOW CAN FAT INJECTIONS IMPROVE MY APPEARANCE?

Fat injections are a safe and effective treatment that uses the body’s natural cells, placed in strategic areas of the face, breast, buttocks, or scars, to increase fullness and volume, adding definition and diminishing the appearance of lines and wrinkles or any contour irregularities.

HOW COMPLICATED IS THE PROCEDURE?

The fat transfer procedure is simple, safe, and effective. While minimally invasive and performed in three simple steps, local anesthesia is typically used to prevent any potential discomfort during the procedure.

Step 1: Fat is extracted from the harvest site using liposuction. The most common harvest sites are areas where patients want to remove stubborn bulges or fatty deposits, usually the flanks, abdomen, buttocks, or thighs. This step of the process improves the appearance of the harvest area, smoothing the body contour.

Step 2: The fatty tissue that has been harvested is processed to separate the fat cells and prepare an injectable solution.

Step 3: The fat cells are injected directly into the target area using a small, thin tube called a cannula, adding natural volume and definition to specific areas of the face, breast, or buttocks.

You will notice visible results immediately after the treatment. In some cases, the body absorbs a portion of the transplanted fat, requiring touch-up treatments.

Alternatively, we are excited to partner with Renuva® by MTF Biologics, an off-the-shelf allograft adipose matrix engineered to treat small-volume aesthetic irregularities, avoiding the need for liposuction! A procedure that can be done in the office in 10-30 minutes.

WHAT ADVANTAGES DO FAT INJECTIONS OFFER OVER OTHER TREATMENTS?

Fat transfer injections are gaining popularity among both patients and doctors because the procedure provides several advantages over other surgical and dermal filler treatments:

  • The procedure is safe and effective and reduces the risk of allergic reaction by using fat from the patient’s own body
  • The treatment removes fat from problem areas, improving body contour
  • The procedure adds fat to areas that have lost volume and fullness, improving contour
  • The procedure is performed comfortably as a simple outpatient treatment
  • There is no downtime or recovery period after the procedure
  • There are stem cell properties in the fat that have been shown to improve the overall texture and condition of treated areas

WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM FAT TRANSFER INJECTIONS?

Fat injections are an ideal choice for healthy men and women who want to reverse the signs of aging without undergoing more invasive surgery. It is an excellent treatment to enhance facial contours and diminish slight facial imperfections in younger adults and also benefits older patients who want to reduce lines and wrinkles.

PREPARING FOR FAT TRANSFER INJECTIONS

Because fat transfer injections contain fat from your own body, there is very little risk of any adverse reaction, and little to no preparation is required for the procedure. If you are taking certain medications, such as aspirin and other blood thinners, allergy medications, sleep aids, NSAIDS, or muscle relaxers, you may have to suspend taking those medications prior to the treatment. If you have any infection or irritation in the skin, you must postpone treatment until the condition subsides.

HOW MUCH DO FAT TRANSFER INJECTIONS COST IN MELBOURNE?

The price of the fat transfer procedure varies, depending on the extent of treatment. Because health insurance does not normally cover elective procedures, you are welcome to discuss financing options with our dedicated and knowledgeable staff.

Central Florida residents in Melbourne, Viera, Brevard County, and nearby communities can now take advantage of fat transfer injections provided at Dermatology + Plastic Surgery, a state-of-the-art practice led by Dr. Rebecca Novo, and Dr. Anita Saluja. Contact our office to learn more about fat injections today!
