Cosmetic Surgery Q & A
What Is a Fat Transfer?
A fat transfer, sometimes called fat grafting, involves removing fat from one part of the body via a gentle liposuction and then injecting it elsewhere. The procedure is a natural way to build up areas that have lost volume due to aging. It works well all over the body but is most commonly used to:
- Enhance cheeks for a fuller face
- Fill hollow lower eyelids
- Fill and smooth indented facial scars
- Improve the size and fullness of the buttocks (Brazilian Butt Lift)
The transferred fat also contains stem cells, which encourages new collagen growth in the area below the skin that increases the fullness of the area over time.
What Is the Recovery Period After a Fat Transfer?
Recovery time after a fat transfer is minimal, only 2-3 days for most patients. However, there are strict instructions you must follow for up to 6 weeks after the procedure. They include:
- No smoking
- No applying pressure to the area
- No excessive exercising
- Eat right – do not starve yourself
- Stay hydrated
- Wear your provided compression garment (for non-facial transfers)
What Kind of Results Can I Expect From Lipo Laser?
Your doctor will work with you to set realistic expectations, but Lipo Laser patients see immediate results due to the reduction in fat and the instantaneous skin contraction. Results will continue to improve over the next two weeks to six months depending on your unique body chemistry. All patients report a decrease in the targeted body zone, but the exact reduction in fat varies from person to person.
Lipo Laser and fat transfers are safe, effective cosmetic treatments that can help you achieve the body or face you desire. Dr. Grimsley and his team at Vitality Ageless Center in Duluth, Georgia, will make sure you understand what to expect during and after treatment and help you reach your desired outcome.

What is Lipo Laser?
Lipo Laser is a safe, FDA-approved procedure that uses a thermal energy laser to liquefy and remove unwanted fat in a targeted body zone. Once the fat cells are liquefied, they are permanently gone as fat cells do not regenerate. In addition to removing unwanted fat, Lipo Laser’s thermal effect causes the skin to contract, resulting in firmer, smoother skin in the targeted area.
Lipo Laser is not a weight loss treatment. It works most effectively on men and women who have a normal BMI (body mass index) who have targeted areas of fat that will not go away despite diet and exercise.
