As we age, the body redistributes fat throughout the body. In many cases, this means lost volume in the face, hands, and scalp. Fortunately, fat grafting is a reliable option for reviving your appearance. Our team is effective at offering fat transfer and injection procedures to patients in and around Boston, Massachusetts. Learn how we can help you.
What is Fat Grafting?
Fat grafting is a safe, effective, and innovative procedure designed to replace fat that may have been redistributed with age. This procedure involves taking fat from one region of the body, purifying and injecting it into another region. Most commonly used for the face, hands and scalp, this procedure is highly safe, due to the fact that it uses the patient’s own fat.
How Much Do Fat Transfers and Injections Cost?
At Regeneris Boston, our team understands that every patient is unique. As a result, we price all of our procedures on an individual basis, and will calculate your custom cost at the time of your consultation.
Of course, we realize that fat grafting may not be covered by your insurance. As a result, we accept a wide range of payment options, including financing through CareCredit® and Union Medical Credit.
Am I a Candidate for Fat Grafting?
The best candidates for fat grafting are individuals who have lost volume in the face, hands or scalp, while retaining fat in other parts of the body. The abdomen, flanks, and thighs are prime locations for fat harvesting. That said, the best way to determine your candidacy for this procedure is to schedule a consultation.
How is Fat Grafting Performed?
Fat grafting is a multi-step process. This procedure is performed on an out-patient basis, under a local anesthetic. To begin, fat is removed from the donor site, often by liposuction. The fat is then processed to purify and remove any excess fluids, before being injected into the treatment area.
What is Recovery Like After a Fat Transfer?
After a fat transfer, you may experience some bruising and swelling, both in the donor site and the treatment area. Our office will provide detailed instructions on how best to care for your body during recovery, so your results are of the highest quality.
How Long Will My Results Last?
The good news is that, although fat grafting may require a higher level of investment in both time and money, the results can last for many years. Especially in areas of the body that move less—such as the cheeks—you can expect to enjoy the results of your fat grafting for the long-term.
Fat transfers and injections are a safe and effective way to enhance your appearance, without the use of any artificial products. If you reside in Boston, Cape Cod, Attleboro or the surrounding Massachusetts communities, we are here to help. Contact us today to get started.
