Fat Transfer Surgery (Fat Grafting)
Fat Transfer, also known as autologous fat transfer, restores volume to several areas of your face and body using your own fat cells to gain natural looking results.
During fat grafting, Dr. Feledy removes fat cells from your abdomen (stomach), thighs, buttocks or elsewhere. He will refine and re-implant these fat cells beneath the skin to fill in areas that are affected by volume loss.
‘It amazed me how fat from one part of my body could be used to improve another part. I thought that was only in science fiction movies but I guess things are advancing. Dr. Feledy clearly knows what he is doing with fat grafting and I was so happy with how fast the surgery went. I couldn’t feel better about the final result.’ – W.P.*

Fat Grafting FAQs
What is fat transfer?
Where areas of the body are fat transfers commonly performed?
How does fat transfer work?
Slight overfilling may be necessary to circumvent some of the inevitable fat re-absorption by the body. When fat is used to augment the cheeks, this over-correction may cause the face to appear abnormally fuller temporarily.
What happens after fat transfer?
Stay out of the sun until redness and bruising subsides - usually about 48 hours. In the meantime, you may use makeup with sunblock protection to help conceal your condition. In some cases, swelling and puffiness in the recipient site will last for several weeks, especially if a large area was treated.
How long do the fat transfer results last?
