Autologous Fat Transfer

Autologous fat transfer involves the removal and relocation of the patient’s own body fat to plump up an area that has lost volume after surgery, injury, aging or another cause. Autologous refers to the use of one’s own fat.

Fat transfer performed by New Jersery plastic surgeon Dr. Nicole Schrader is a safe and natural procedure for filling lines and depressions in the face. This treatment can eliminate smile lines, frown lines, marionette lines, wrinkles, furrows, and hollows in the face. Scars or depressions, such as those from acne can be treated. Fat transfer is commonly used in lips that have lost volume. Fat transfer is useful for breast augmentation and treatment for skin creases and wrinkles.

There is no risk of allergic reaction because the transplanted fat comes from the patient. Other advantages of autologous fat transfer include a short recovery time, long-lasting results and effectiveness on any skin type.
