What Is A Fat Transfer?
If someone gains, then loses weight, they may lose shape in various body parts where volume was once plentiful. One way to regain volume that has been lost is through an aesthetic procedure known as fat grafting (a fat transfer). This treatment takes fat from one or more areas of the body and transfers it into a specific place that could use additional volume. A fat transfer can be performed on widespread areas, such as the buttocks or breasts, or on delicate features, such as the lips and cheeks. Fat grafting and transfers are commonly chosen when a patient hopes to have a natural enhancement versus using implants or fillers. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Staci Hix-Hernandez is skilled at using the most advanced liposuction and grafting methods for performing fat transfers. This cosmetic enhancement at Beleza Surgery creates natural-looking, appealing outcomes. For more information or to schedule a consultation, call one of our Central Texas locations in Cedar Park, Round Rock, Austin, or Killeen, TX.
"I've been on my mommy makeover journey for quite some time now. But I am over joyed to have finally found the perfect doctor and staff. The Beleza Medspa/Surgery staff and Dr.Hernandez are very welcoming and informative.They are not just after your money they actually care about you and what’s best for you! The way they walked me through every process and answered all the questions I had(and I had a lot of them). I recently had my surgery this past Monday, and I cannot wait to see my final results. Thank you to everyone at the Beleza Medspa/Surgery for making this such a smooth process for me."- S.S. / Google / Apr 27, 2021

"My experience here was excellent. I did my research before deciding where to go for my Botox and filler and ended up choosing Beleza because of their extensively documented processes on their website as well as their very professional social media presence and high ratings on Yelp. They really did not disappoint. Booking ProcessThey were super easy to get ahold of and worked with me and my packed schedule to get me an appointment. It had to be rescheduled on my behalf once and then I ended up calling again because my work schedule allowed for my original appointment time again and they were so understanding on the phone and let me take my original date/time.OfficeThe office is well maintained and very clean and I was greeted warmly right away by Elena, after I filled out my paperwork I was greeted by Nancy. Treatment Nancy took me back and was very thorough during our consult. I am new to Botox/fillers and she has been in esthetics for 24 years so she had a ton of knowledge but what was even better was that she was that she responded to all my questions with care and kindness. I got filler in my cheeks and a bit in my undereye trough, Botox in my 11’s and then a little Botox around the mouth. She explained every step of the way and made me feel very at ease even though I’m not a big fan of needles. Overall my experience here was amazing and I will continue to return for more services with their lovely and knowledgable staff!"- S.M. / Yelp / Jan 22, 2021
What Can I Expect from My Fat Transfer?
During your fat transfer, you will be placed under some form of anesthesia. The type of sedation or anesthesia will depend on how much fat tissue is being taken out, including the area where it will be placed. A form of liposuction is completed to carefully extract the fat so it can be purified and harvested. After prepping the injection site, the fat will be transferred into the area that needs volume. This injection is performed in layers until an even smoothness has been attained. For some areas, numerous injections will be necessary. Following this procedure, you will begin a healing phase. Keep in mind, there are two different areas on the body that need to be carefully treated: the area involving liposuction and the injection sites. The recovery process may be longer if a larger section on the body was addressed. As an example, a fat transfer to the lips will typically only warrant a 1 – 2-day healing period whereas a transfer to a larger section, such as the butt or breasts, can take many more days. The sites will appear red and slightly swollen, but the outcomes can be seen almost immediately. Another perk is the area where fat was extracted will appear slimmer. Fat grafting yields wonderful, lasting results. There is almost no scarring associated with this procedure.
