Fat Grafting & Transfer
Fat transfer is a cosmetic surgery technique that can be used to enhance or plump up areas of the face as an alternative to man-made fillers or a synthetic implant. It may also smooth irregular contours. Fat is taken from the patient’s own body (usually the abdomen, waist, thighs or buttock) and reinjected into areas where fullness and contouring (or sculpting) is needed.
Dr. Dick also performs this procedure as part of breast reconstruction following mastectomy.
