Fat Grafting Treatments in New York City

The plastic surgery field is continuously improving with the development of innovative technologies that provide patients with a greater level of safety, less scarring, lower recovery times, improved results, and an overall enhanced experience. The goal of plastic surgery is to provide a patient with beautiful and natural results, but how natural is natural these days? With Natural Fat Grafting and Fat Transfer, it’s as natural as the patient’s own cells.

Fat Grafting and Fat Transfer in NYC is a relatively new procedure for the majority of plastic surgeons world-wide, but not for New York plastic surgeon Dr. Leonard Grossman. Dr. Grossman pioneered the innovative treatment in 1993 and has been perfecting it ever since, to offer his patients a new and improved methods of augmentation and rejuvenation.  This safe and reliable alternative to traditional implants, Dr. Grossman’s New York Fat Grafting procedure utilizes the patient’s own “Autologous” Fat and Fat Derived Stem Cells to increase fullness, volume or improve the proportions of one or several areas of the body, including the breasts, buttocks, calves, face, cheeks and the neck, many muscle groups like the triceps  and hands.

Over the last 20 years the procedure has become extremely simple, when performed by Dr. Grossman. Dr. Grossman begins the Fat Transfer treatment by removing fat from one or more areas of the patient’s body using a syringe and miniscule cannula (needle).  Obtained fat is then chemically stabilized and centrifuged.  Live fat cells enriched with Stem Cells are then injected in the area where the increase in volume is desired. Because the patient’s natural fat is being used for augmentation, there is no risk of the patient rejecting the Fat Transfer, as sometimes occurs with silicone or saline implants.

Fat Grafting is superior to traditional implant augmentation surgery in several ways, including the fact that there are no scars, little to no postoperative pain, risk of infection is virtually non-existent and no displacement or movement, as well as capsular contractures associated with traditional implants are not seen. Patients can resume work and near normal activities immediately and since the cannula used to extract and inject the fat cells is so small, scars are imperceptible.

Dr. Grossmans Fat Transfer patients can see immediate results without having to wait weeks for swelling to reduce as with traditional implants. Patients don’t have to wear uncomfortable compression garments during the healing process.  Patients are also not restricted to augmenting only certain areas of the body, as would be the case with traditional implants. There are no limits on what areas can be treated. Results look and feel more natural than those experienced with saline or silicone implants or with fillers like Evolence, Radiesse or Restylane, leading to greater patient satisfaction.
