    Fat grafting and fat transfer before and after results as performed by New York City plastic surgeon Dr. William Lao

    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.

WHY FAT GRAFTING?

Changes in aging are three-dimensional. Gravity pulls everything down in the vertical direction but tissues also undergo atrophy in the horizontal dimension. Fat grafting is one of the techniques to restore the loss volume that occurs with aging. The most commonly used places for that reason are the face, breasts, hands or feet. Depending on the cultural preference, younger people can also benefit from the volume augmentation provided by fat grafting such as buttock augmentation and breast augmentation.


HOW IS IT DONE?

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 transfered to areas where volume is desired, like the face, nose, breasts, buttocks, hands, and feet.

PATIENTS’ REVIEWS

My name is MR. I had liposuction around my abdominal area and fat grafting to my hips, hands, and feet with Dr. W. Lao. I was very comfortable in trusting him with my surgery. I truly recommend anybody to him 100%. My experience with him was great and satisfying that it went well and I’m so happy to have done it with him.
