The fat transfer procedure involves the use of liposuction to harvest fat from troublesome areas of the body. Once removed, the fat is purified and then strategically injected into targeted areas to add volume and provide youthful, attractive contours. Although this procedure usually takes about one to two hours to perform, the total amount of time needed for treatment will depend on the amount of fat to be removed and transferred into the desired area of enhancement.
