If there are certain parts of your body that you wish had more volume — like your breasts or buttocks — and areas that were trimmer, a fat transfer could be the solution to your problems. Triple board-certified surgeon Douglas Hendricks, MD, offers fat transfers to his patients at Pacifica Cosmetic Surgery Center in Newport Beach, California.

A fat transfer is exactly what it sounds like. During this procedure, Dr. Hendricks takes fat from a part of your body where you have it in excess and moves it to a location where you want more volume.
For example, he can take fat from your abdomen and move it to your breasts. Similarly, he can take fat from your thighs and move it to your buttocks.
Fat transfer procedures offer two notable benefits. First, they give you the opportunity to increase fullness in areas where you want it, helping your body look more proportional and boosting your self-confidence.
Secondly, because Dr. Hendricks needs to derive the fat for your breast or buttock augmentation from your own body, you get to pick an area where you wish you were trimmer. He then removes fat from that area, minimizing or even completely eliminating your problem area.
A fat transfer breast augmentation is ideal for women who want to increase the volume of their breasts while maintaining a natural appearance.
Generally, you can’t increase your breast size with fat transfer as significantly as you can with implants, but if you want a way to increase volume in your chest while trimming another part of your body, a fat transfer augmentation is ideal.
During this type of procedure, Dr. Hendricks performs liposuction on the body area from which you’ve chosen to take the fat. Laser-assisted liposuction, or Smartlipo, is available. He then adds that fat to your breasts through a small incision on either side of your chest.
Buttock augmentations, also called Brazilian butt lifts, have skyrocketed in popularity in recent years. During this procedure, Dr. Hendricks uses either traditional liposuction or laser-assisted Smartlipo to remove fat from the area of your choice, whether that’s your waist, hips, or thighs. He then takes the removed fat and places it in your buttocks, giving you a fuller, more shapely backside.
