Fat Transfer

Fat Transfer Procedures for Residents in Tampa, Clearwater, Lutz, New Port Richey, Odessa, and Beyond

Fat transfer procedures were developed as techniques in anti-aging regenerative medicine, which is a relatively new medical specialty that is quickly become popular in the cosmetic surgery industry. These innovative procedures can be used to decrease signs of aging and help patients maintain a youthful appearance as they mature. Depending on the patient’s unique needs and appearance goals, a fat transfer can reduce wrinkles, smooth out skin, or when needed, restore volume to areas affected by the natural aging process. At the Bayside Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. John Roach performs fat transfers, also called fat grafting, for patients from Tampa, Palm Harbor, Wesley Chapel, Tarpon Springs, and elsewhere throughout Florida.

During fat transfer procedures, Dr. Roach withdraws fat from a pre-determined region of the body – much like he does during a traditional liposuction procedure – and then purifies and re-deposits the fat into another area of a patient’s body. The purified fat can be used for lip enhancement, reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles, and other targeted procedures, including body contouring.
