BEFORE & AFTERS
MR, 59, Female, Hispanic, Bronx, USA
M is a nice lady who came with a chief complaint of her hands. She complained that her hands prematurely aged, they looked older than her age and she felt very self-conscious every time she put her hands out to grab something or played cards with her friends. Specifically she did not like the prominent veins and the atrophic look. Fat liposuctioned from her belly was used to rejuvenate hand hands and feet, notice the less prominent veins and a fuller appearance of the hands after surgery.*Individual results may vary.
Changes in aging are three-dimensional. Gravity pulls everything down in the vertical direction but tissues also undergo atrophy in the horizontal dimension. In the long run, these issues can cause a loss of volume, saggy skin, and a much older look overall. In cases such as these Dr. William Lao has helped many patients reclaim their youthful aesthetic with a cosmetic procedure known as fat grafting.

What is Fat Grafting?
Fat grafting is a cosmetic procedure that involves taking fat from one area of the body to fill in lost volume in another. It is an advanced technique designed to restore the lost volume that occurs with aging. The most commonly used places for that reason are the face, breasts, hands, or feet.
The Fat Grafting Procedure?
Fat grafting is a procedure that can potentially "kill two birds with one stone." Liposuction is performed in places of the body where fat is not wanted, ie. flanks, abdomen, inner and outer thighs. This fat is then processed and transferred to areas where volume is desired, like the face, nose, breasts, buttocks, hands, and feet.
Enhancing the Buttocks With A Brazilian Butt Lift?
Enhancing the buttocks with fat grafting is known as a Brazilian butt lift. By utilizing one’s natural fat, the Brazilian butt lift can provide a natural enhancement to the buttocks while safely improving another area of the body where the donor fat is sourced from.
Good Candidates for Fat Grafting
Fat grafting is an excellent option for those experiencing the changes caused by the aging process and who want to improve the contours of their bodies without having to undergo a highly invasive surgical procedure. Depending on the cultural preference, younger people can also benefit from the volume augmentation provided by fat graftings such as buttock augmentation and breast augmentation. Ideal candidates for fat grafting should have an adequate amount of excess fat that can be removed from one area of the body and used on another.
How Much Does Fat Grafting Cost?
The cost of a fat grafting treatment varies from patient to patient and depends on the needs of each individual. Factors that help determine the cost are the amount of fat being removed and the area(s) you desire to have corrected. We’ll perform an assessment of your body to help determine the perfect treatment plan for your needs and discuss the associated cost.
