Beverly Hills Fat Transfer Procedure
A Natural Way of Augmenting Other Parts of Your Face & Body
For our patients looking for a more natural solution to enhance certain areas of your face or body, Simply Body recommends our safe and effective fat transfer process. Your surgeon can withdraw your own fat cells via liposuction, and use them to augment lips and cheekbones, fill in facial lines and wrinkles, or even boost the natural curves of your bottom and breasts.
Based on the amount of excess fat you have available, fat augmentation can deliver subtle figure enhancements to sizable breast or buttock augmentation. Our Beverly Hills fat augmentation is becoming popular in our clinic, as we are offering liposuction techniques that preserve fat cells for fat transfer and stem cell enrichment of the harvested fat to provide the benefit of stem cells to the injected areas on your body.

Benefits of our Beverly Hills Fat Transfer Procedure
- There are two primary benefits of fat transfer:
- Your surgeon can help you reduce problem fat deposits with liposuction that diet and exercise haven’t helped, while at the same time*
- It adds volume and definition elsewhere in your body, without the use of artificial implants or synthetic fillers.
Our Beverly Hills fat transfer can deliver very natural results and is really a win-win solution for body sculpting*. Since fat cells tend to be softer than synthetic fillers, your surgeon is better able to smooth and contour the target area for superior results. The effects can last anywhere from several months to several years, although in some cases multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve the ideal volume.
Any risk of allergic reaction that may be a concern with synthetic fillers is also reduced since our patient is using tissue from his or her own body.* Our fat transfer remains one of the safest procedures for minimizing the appearance of scars and wrinkles, rejuvenating the appearance of the hands and face or changing your body contours. Fat transfer can also be used in liposuction revision to correct any visible dimpling or unevenness left from a previous procedure.
About the Procedure
The liposuction portion of our Beverly Hills fat transfer process will be performed with a form of tumescent liposuction. Newer techniques like laser liposuction or ultrasonic liposuction destroy the fat cells to facilitate their reduction; although this is perfect for achieving body sculpting alone, fat transfer depends on the successful reduction of living fat cells.* When performed with an eye toward fat transfer, tumescent liposuction can best preserve both the life and integrity of the fat cells.
During the fat cell collection procedure, the tumescent fluid is slowly injected into the target area. This solution contains a local anesthetic to ensure patient comfort, epinephrine to constrict the blood vessels and minimize bleeding plus a sterile saline solution. Some time is allowed for the solution to fully saturate the area down to the deepest fat layers, helping to release the cells for easier reduction, which will minimize damage during the withdrawal process.*
Once the fat cells are loosened, your surgeon uses a back and forth motion to further separate the fat deposits, while ensuring that movements are gentle enough to maintain cell integrity. Light suction is used to gently reduce the combination of cells and tumescent solution, and this mixture is processed to separate out the fluid and other impurities from the living cells as well as concentrate the mature stem cells.*
Finally, the processed, concentrated fat cells are injected into the area to be augmented. Your surgeon will inject extra fat initially, to compensate for the partial reabsorption of fat cells that typically occurs after surgery.
After the Procedure
Our patients will experience healing in multiple areas after their Beverly Hills fat transfer procedure, both at the cell collection site and at the injection site. The local anesthetic included in the tumescent solution helps patients stay comfortable into the early stages of their recovery. Swelling and bruising in both areas are very common. You may notice more bruising at the cell collection site, and more swelling at the injection site. This dissipates in about a week, although the majority of patients are able to return to their typical daily routines sooner than that.
A compression garment is worn over the area treated with liposuction to encourage the body to conform to its new contours, as well as reduce swelling and help expel any remaining tumescent fluid.
Beverly Hills Fat Transfer Results
After your fat transfer, the cells will slowly continue to improve the appearance of the target area as they take root by developing their own blood supply*. Not all the transferred cells will thrive in their new location, so repeat sessions are sometimes necessary to build up additional volume. Fat transfer delivers smooth, natural results that last much longer than synthetic fillers*.
You get to enjoy the slimmer, smoother profile that is expected from traditional liposuction, as well as the fuller contours created through the fat augmentation process*. The liposuction will leave behind very small scars a few millimeters in length that should heal to nearly invisible. However, our Beverly Hills fat transfer itself uses only a needle, delivering beautiful, scarless results.
