This can help to fill in a scar, plump up lips, naturally augment the breasts, or create more contour where it is needed. Well tolerated by the body because it is the person’s own fat, risks are very low, especially in the hands of Dr. Vazquez.

Determining if the Surgery is Right for You

At Bayshore Cosmetic Surgery, we do not jump into a procedure without making sure that you are a good candidate in terms of your present health, past health history, and current lifestyle. When you come in for your initial consultation, the Doctor will discuss your health history in order to determine if the surgery is right for you. Once it is determined that the surgery will not compromise any health issues you may have, the Doctor will evaluate your expectations and discuss what you can expect in terms of the procedure and the healing process.

How Fat Transfer is Performed

Fat transfer is performed with specially designed needles that are injected into the areas requiring augmentation. Using a special suction cannula, fat is first extracted from one area through a sterile technique. The fat is then purified through a centrifuge, spinning it or by allowing natural decantering either way with the goal of obtaining pure concentrated fat cells.  The injections, which may be multiple depending on the desired result, will create threads of fat that are then massaged into the area in order to create contouring. Once the procedure is done, a dressing is placed on top and the healing begins.

What to Expect

You can expect swelling, which will diminish over the course of two to three weeks, in addition to possible bruising and numbness. You may also experience slight asymmetry in the area, which will improve as the swelling subsides.

Monitoring You Every Step of the Way

Throughout the process, Dr. Vazquez will be monitoring you to make sure that all is on course. With the Doctor’s surgeries it is rare for any complications to occur, but we believe that it is better to be overly cautious and diligent, and in this regard we monitor you every step of the way.
