Fat Transfer Gatineau
As we age, skin can lose volume in areas we wish were more plump. Dr. Patricia Berbari can restore youthfulness and add volume to your skin through a fat transfer at our Gatineau plastic surgery centre. This safe, effective procedure has produced outstanding results in Dr. Berbari's hands. To find out if a fat transfer is right for you, please contact our Gatineau office today.
Fat transfer, also known as fat grafting, can be used in conjunction with liposuction or a tummy tuck. Dr. Berbari always strives to provide the most aesthetic, natural-looking results.
The procedure takes anywhere from thirty minutes to over an hour to perform, as Dr. Berbari takes her time artistically placing the fat to ensure precision and an excellent cosmetic enhancement. Harvested fat is remarkable in the sense that it has the ability to safely and naturally plump your skin, and smooth the appearance of unwanted lines and wrinkles. Because fat is considered a replacement filler, it performs similarly to JUVÉDERM® but the effects last for a longer period of time.
The state-of-the-art technology found at our Gatineau facility give Dr. Berbari the opportunity to safely remove, administer, and store harvested fat from your body. Using a lipo sculpture fat transfer system, our Gatineau team can reshape your features by restoring volume that has been lost over time. Generally, this procedure is performed under general anesthesia.
Are You A Candidate?
If you do not like the idea of having to undergo multiple treatments in order to achieve your cosmetic goals, you may be a candidate for fat transfer at our Gatineau practice. Those who want to use their own tissue as a filler instead of a synthetic formula may also be an ideal candidate for the procedure. If you are already undergoing a combination of procedures during a single surgery like liposuction and a face lift, as many of our patients do, and want to make the most of your cosmetic enhancement Dr. Berbari recommends using the excess fat as the "cherry on top" to optimize your results.
