Fat Transfer 101

Have you ever wished that you could take fat from one part of your body, such as your abdomen, and move it to another? While many women have written it off as a fantasy, fat transfer, also called fat grafting, is a very real procedure that’s rapidly gaining popularity throughout the country.
Fat transfer begins when a surgeon harvests fat via liposuction. At our Marietta, GA practice, fat for transfer is often harvested from the abdomen or thighs. Once the fat is harvested, the surgeon uses a special process to purify it. The fat is then injected into the targeted areas. Fat transfer is most often used to augment the:

  • Breasts
  • Buttocks
  • Face

Because the procedure uses the patient’s own fat, the potential for adverse reactions is minimized, and our patients love their natural-looking results.

Permanent Make-Up

Considering permanent make-up for the first time? Looking for freedom from makeup? You have come to the right place. Permanent makeup can give you the freedom to look your best at any time. You can transition immediately from work to an evening out without having to be in front of the mirror for touch-ups; just a quick powder and you are out the door. Permanent make-up looks more natural than any topical application of makeup as the pigments become a part of your skin and won’t smear or smudge. Summer time can be hectic, between running to the beach, lake or pool, or taking the kids here and there. Pamper yourself with permanent make-up where the results are natural-looking and make your life easier. If you’ve been considering permanent make-up, why not today?
