As well as it also indicated to enhance body areas such as cheeks, chin, buttocks and calves.
The Procedure For Fat Transfer involves local anesthesia in both the donor site ( the area from which fat is taken) and the recipient site (area to be treated. A needle attached to a syringe is inserted into the donor site in a location which has a thick layer of fat such as the lower stomach, thigh or buttocks. Fat cells are aspirated or drawn into the syringe are purified and then carefully re-injected into the recipient site.
