Fat Transfer

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.

Fat Transfer From Dr. Jazayeri

Local Anesthesia

The use of local anesthesia allows Dr. Jazayeri to perform all treatments in his friendly and relaxing office setting. Local anesthesia has the benefit of minimal side effects compared to the potential adverse responses to general anesthesia (e.g., nausea, confusion, hypothermia). Patients that use local anesthesia also have a quicker office recovery time and can return home sooner.


The use of liposuction in the fat transfer procedure has the added benefit of correcting fatty problem areas of the body. Fat is harvested from a donor site, such as the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks, to produce more slender contours in the area.

Fat Transfer FAQ

A: BOTOX® and JUVÉDERM® are both considered temporary fillers whose results are not long lasting. Once the initial fat has been absorbed after your fat transfer, what remains stays there permanently. Fat transfer also has the benefit of being 100 percent natural, so there is very little risk of an allergic reaction.

A: Good candidates for fat transfer are healthy, have enough excess fat in donor sites for harvesting, and don’t have any circulation problems. Dr. Jazayeri can determine if you are a good candidate during your initial consultation.

A: Depending on how well your initial fat transfer takes, one or more treatments may be needed to achieve your ideal results.

A: If any scarring develops, it will be at the site of your liposuction. These scars will typically be small and should fade over time.

A: The worst of the swelling and bruising resolves in the first week following surgery, and the majority of swelling will resolve by the third week of recovery. After this time, you should see your new and improved contours, and final results will be apparent after three months.

A: The cost of fat transfer varies from patient to patient. The total cost depends on the amount of liposuction needed, the size of the area being injected, and associated medical fees. During your consultation, Dr. Jazayeri will discuss the cost of your procedure.
