Fat Injections (Body)
What Are Body Fat Injections?
Body fat injections are simple, minimally invasive procedures in which fat is removed from one area of the body and placed in another. This procedure can also be referred to as a fat graft or fat transfer. The goal of a body fat injection is straightforward; it serves to add volume and contour areas of the body particularly important for men. The procedure can target the buttocks, calves, hips, abdomen and more, in order to give the body a more symmetrical look.
Dr. Steinbrech’s self-developed BodyBanking® fat transfer procedure minimizes the number of fat cells lost during the procedure, preventing disproportionate weight gain and providing a natural-looking result.
How Are Body Fat Injections Performed on Men?
Fortunately, body fat injections are both a brief and minimally invasive procedure. Fat will be removed from the donor area, cleansed of impurities via a centrifuge, and injected into the desired area, whether it be the chest, shoulders, or abdomen. Both removal and injection are completed using a needle.
Dr. Steinbrech will provide general anesthesia (or, less commonly, IV sedation), minimizing discomfort during the operation. For larger injections, sedation is more likely to be the desirable option, but general anesthesia is usually sufficient.
Following the procedure, your body will look more sculpted and toned than ever before.
Preparation for Body Fat Injections
Because body fat injections are such a straightforward procedure, little preparation is necessary on the patient’s side.
However, certain preoperative instructions will be provided by Dr. Steinbrech. These include the cessation of any smoking six to eight weeks before surgery, as smoking may prevent postoperative healing and contribute to scarring. Certain medications should be avoided, as specified by Dr. Steinbrech. As in any operation, hydration is also key, and you should prepare to have someone drive you home after the fat injection is completed.
Who is a Good Candidate for Body Fat Injections?
Men who have areas of the body that are lacking in volume, or which contribute to overall aesthetic asymmetry, may be a good candidate for Dr. Steinbrech’s body fat injection treatment.
Being in good physical health is also an important factor before undergoing body fat injections. During your preoperative consultation, Dr. Steinbrech’s team will examine you, looking for areas of your body that contain healthy and transferrable fat cells. For this reason, the areas from which fat is removed differ from patient to patient.
If you are a man in good physical health and desire a more youthful, symmetrical appearance for your body, body fat injections may be the solution for you.
A Body Fat Injection Is a Good Option If You:
- Wish to contour and improve the appearance of your body
- Have specific areas of the body to which you wish to add volume
- Have reached the limits of shaping your body through working out
- Are a man in good physical health
What Can I Expect From My Body Fat Injection Recovery?
Because body fat injections are less invasive than many other surgical procedures, most patients can return to work after about a week of recovery. After the anesthesia wears off, you may experience mild pain or discomfort in the injection area. Bruising or swelling may also occur. The exact recovery time is contingent upon the size and location of the injection, however, so be sure to ask Dr. Steinbrech what you should expect.
