What is fat transfer?
Often paired with liposuction, fat transfer is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure. Fat transfer surgery removes fat from one area of the body and injects it into a more desired area. Fat transfer shapes and contours the body without the use of filler or implants. Dr. Conkright can remove access fat and move it to where you are wanting a more enhanced, fuller appearance. Where are the most common areas fat is harvested?

why fat transfer?
Fat transfer is ideal for patients looking for more symmetry or volume while remaining incredibly natural! This procedure allows patients to use their own tissue and gives a natural feel and look to the body. Fat grafting leaves minimal scarring and is a safe, effective procedure. It's the perfect way to increase definition in areas you want more defined.
what are the benefits?
This procedure allows patients to target two problems at the same time! If there is any area that is storing more fat than you'd like and you wish you had more volume somewhere else, well this is it! This allows for less a chance of an allergic reaction because you're using your own tissue. It helps to improve the skin with smoother and plumper appearance. The final results are considered permanent, so once you remove the fat cells from one area, then that site will have fewer fat cells.
why pair it with liposuction?
Liposuction takes and removes access fat for the donor site to be injected to where you're looking for more fullness. Liposuction removes the fat offering a more slim and smooth appearance. Dr. Conkright will make sure to remove an adequate amount of fat to transfer to the area(s) with less definition to create a happy, healthy looking you. Liposuction and fat transfer together allow patients to look and feel their best while keeping healthy volume in areas that it may have been lost.
