If you have gone through a major weight loss, you will likely end up with an excess of skin and tissues that results in saggy skin and loose skin appearance. You may have tried to maintain a healthy and reasonable diet and a solid exercise regimen but even these efforts are often not enough to tighten your skin leaving surgery as the only viable option.
Body contouring is known as body sculpting, a cosmetic surgery that utilizes various techniques to give you a firmer, tighter and more voluminous skin all over your body where you need it most.
Fat transfer has become one of the most popular forms of body contouring in Rancho Mirage in large part because it can be done faster than many other surgeries. It requires less recovery time while achieving impressive results. Fat transfer allows you to choose where you want the fat to be removed and where it should be applied.
Fat Grafting involves removing fat from a donor site on your body and used as a filler in another area where you want to add volume and shape.
Fat is removed from a donor site using liposuction or the gentler syringe liposuction. The mixture is treated by separating the fluid from the fat which is set in a centrifuge that separates the living fat cells and the ones that died during the suction. The non-live cells are removed manually to get a pure concentration of live fat cells that your body is more likely to accept and retain. The pure fat is applied via micro-injection to the place on your body that you want to fill or add volume.
