The plastic surgery field is continuously improving with the development of innovative technologies that provide patients with a greater level of safety, less scarring, quicker recovery times, improved results, and an overall enhanced experience. The goal of plastic surgery is to provide the patient with beautiful and natural results, but how natural is natural these days? With Natural Fat Grafting and Fat Transfer, the results are as natural as natural gets, since only the patient’s own cells are being used in the process of treatment.
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, offering his patients new and improved methods of augmentation, correction and rejuvenation. This is a safe and reliable alternative to traditional surgery and implants. Dr. Grossman’s fat grafting procedure in New York City 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. Defects caused by trauma, illness or cancer can be corrected with minimal or no scarring, yet results are absolutely natural looking.
With the advances in Fat Grafting made by Dr. Grossman, the procedure has become extremely simple. Dr. Grossman begins the Fat Transfer treatment by removing fat from one or more areas on the patient’s body using a syringe and small cannula (needle like tubing). Obtained fat is then chemically stabilized and centrifuged. Live Fat Cells enriched with your own 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 graft.
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. Unlike with the majority of other doctors, our patients don’t have to wear uncomfortable compression garments during the healing process. With Fat Grafting the patients are not restricted to augmenting only certain areas of the body, as would be the case with traditional implants. Every part of the body or face can be treated. Results look and feel more natural than those with saline or silicone implants or with fillers like Juvederm, Radiesse or Restylane, leading to greater patient satisfaction.
