Fat Transfer Des Moines

What is Fat Transfer?

The procedure involves removal of your own fat by liposuction from one part of your body (usually the abdomen or hips) and then injecting the fat into another region of the body. The fat is used to restore volume and fullness or to soften and diminish lines and wrinkles. Loss of volume and fine lines and wrinkles are most noticeable as aging occurs and most often seen in the face. Fat can be transferred in very small amounts for areas such as the face or in larger volumes for areas of fat transfer such as the buttocks (Brazilian Butt Lift) and in conjunction with high definition 4D liposculpture which involves sculpting the muscles and anatomy and augmenting muscle groups with fat transfer. High Definition 4D liposculpture is most commonly performed on the abdominal muscles, male pectoral muscles, and arms.

The procedure for fat transfer and injections involves a three-step process. Initially, fat is removed using liposuction most commonly from the abdomen, flanks or thighs. Next, the fat is isolated and concentrated using the REVOLVE™ system. Fat is a living, viable cell and must be handled with precision and care otherwise the fat cell will not survive transfer to another part of the body and will be reabsorbed. The REVOLVE™ system results in purified fat grafts that are ideal for transfer and survivability. REVOLVE™can be used to transfer small or large volume of fat depending on the goals of treatment. The last step involves precisely injecting the purified fat into the treatment areas using special fat grafting cannulas.

What is REVOLVE™ at Des Moines Plastic Surgery™?

REVOLVE™ is a state-of-the-art fat grafting system that allows Dr. Robbins to transfer fat that is more than 97% contaminant-free. Harvesting of fat with liposuction can damage fat cells which results in the release of lipid oil that if reinjected with fat transfer, can cause the fat to not survive in its new location. Likewise, any blood that is not removed prior to reinjection can decrease fat graft survival. REVOLVE™ provides a reliable fat purification method because of its patented filtration technology. REVOLVE™ removes more than 97% of captured lipid, blood, and other fluids resulting in a more purified fat graft for best survivability. Dr. Robbins can also combine fat grafting with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to increase survivability and restoration of youthful volume.

Fat can be harvested and be transferred anywhere in the body. Dr. Robbins offers fat transfer to the following areas:

  • Face: Fat can be injected into areas such as smile lines, forehead and frown lines to soften these lines and can also be injected into the cheeks to replace lost volume with aging.
  • Buttocks: REVOLVE™ fat grafting can be used in the buttocks to increase volume and improve shape (Brazilian Butt Lift). Buttocks lifts with implants can be unpredictable and have a history of many potential complications. Fat grafting does not use an implant and is a natural, predictable, and safe method for buttocks augmentation offered at Des Moines Plastic Surgery™

A tummy tuck can address both the upper and lower abdomen. It’s important to note that tummy tuck surgery is not a substitute for conventional weight loss. The best candidates will already be in good health and physical shape before electing surgery.

The goal of tummy tuck surgery is to redefine and reshape the abdomen through the removal of excess skin and fat and tightening of abdomen muscles.

You may be a good candidate for abdominoplasty if you have:

Localized fat deposits around your midsection
Excess or hanging skin around your abdomen
Stretched or separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti)

A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and weight control. Sometimes these methods cannot achieve our goals.

Even individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging. The most common causes of this include:

Prior surgery
Significant fluctuations in weight

A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin and restores weakened muscles to create a smoother, firmer abdominal profile.

Consultation: the first step.

Many women start their surgical journey by talking to a friend or a relative who has already had a breast augmentation. While these are all good places to start, your most valuable resource is a personal consultation with a plastic surgeon.

A consultation doesn’t take long, and with an expert’s opinion, you’ll be better able to understand the benefits, risks, and discover which implant options are best for you and your body.

What LOOK can Natrelle® implants give you?
Your surgeon can help you choose the best option based on your needs, wants, unique body structure, and more. Natrelle INSPIRA® Breast Implants are designed for a full look—especially at the top. Keep in mind that choosing the right implant for you is more than just deciding on size.

Should you request a certain bra size?

Believe it or not - no!

Surgeons talk size and projection when it comes to selecting implants. Breast implant size is actually measured in cubic centimeters (cc), not by bra cup size. The larger the implant, the higher the number of cc.

Projection refers to the side profile or the distance that the implant projects from your body.

The amount of volume (cc) and the degree of projection you and your surgeon select will depend on your body type and the shape and fullness you want.

What does GUMMY feel like?

All Natrelle INSPIRA Breast implants are soft, with varying levels of gel squishiness. When you go gummy, you don’t have to sacrifice implant softness. The best way to determine softness is to feel each implant during your consultation.

#gummyimplants #breastaugmentation #mommymakeover #desmoinesplasticsurgery #desmoines #iowa

What does GUMMY mean?

Gummy describes the consistency of silicone gel in Natrelle INSPIRA Breast Implants.

This gummy-like gel sticks together and has a tendency to hold its shape.

Each implant in the INSPIRA collection has a different level of cohesivity, or what surgeons refer to as gumminess.
