Fat Transfer in New Orleans, LA
About Fat Transfers
When a man or woman has weight fluctuations or moves through the normal aging process, they lose that smooth and plump look in specific body areas where volume once resided. A terrific way to restore volume that has been lost is through an advanced cosmetic technique known as a fat transfer. A fat transfer extracts fat from a place on the body and injects it into a specific area that could benefit from additional volume. Fat transfer procedures can be performed on widespread areas such as the breasts or buttocks or on delicate and smaller areas such as the laugh lines, lips, cheeks, or under the eyelid. Fat transfers are often chosen when an individual hopes to have a natural enhancement rather than using a device such as an implant or a substance such as a filler. New Orleans, LA plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters is able to use the most advanced liposuction and grafting methods for performing fat transfers. This cosmetic enhancement by Dr. Walters creates natural-looking, appealing outcomes.
Men and women who wish to have more smoothness and volume in specific places on the face or body that appear hollow, thin, or deflated may be appropriate candidates for the fat grafting (transfer) procedure. This specialized enhancement is even more desired because it provides an autologous way to produce results by incorporating the patient's fat tissue. Both women and men considering this procedure need to be at a certain weight and have fat to extract for the transfer. In addition, you must be a non-smoker, as fat grafting uses only healthy tissue for the most effective outcome.

Dr. Walters performed liposuction of the calves, ankles, interior and exterior thighs, and fat transfer. I was extremely pleased with the results. Dr. Walters and his staff were available to answer any questions that I had. I would highly recommend Dr. Walters to anyone who is looking for a plastic surgeon.
I had seen another doctor for a tummy tuck who I thought was Board Certified. After I took my bandage off my scar was too high and uneven. I saw Dr. Walters for a tummy tuck revision and he explained everything in detail on how he could correct it. He saw me multiple times before my surgery to make sure it was the right time to correct it. The wait was worth it. He did an amazing job! If you are thinking about getting any plastic surgery you must see Dr. Walters he’s an artist. I did lipo on several areas also with fat transfer. I have a snatched waist and defined arms and I’m still only 3 months from my surgery and my muscle definition is showing on my abdominal. He’s honest, caring and listens to all your concerns. I have my body and confidence back and I owe it to him. You will not be disappointed make an appointment and see for yourself how wonderful he is and his staff. Everyone there is caring and friendly.
I researched several positions in hopes of finding a great Plastic Surgeon. Dr. Walters was one of my top choices. After meeting with others I knew he was perfect for me. He’s smart, quite aware of the latest technologies, and is very personable. His bed side manner is amazing! I received a mommy makeover which included an extended tummy tuck and a breast lift with fat transfer. My results are amazing and it’s only been 5 weeks. My final results aren’t even in yet. My breast are lifted and full, and there was no silicone needed. What he did see today however was that I developed something called dog ears. But being the amazing plastic surgeon he is, he’s going to schedule an office visit to have them fixed. His expertise is UNMATCHED! His compassion and care for his patients? UNMATCHED. My stomach is the flattest it’s been in forever and I’m not even finished healing yet! I’d highly recommend anyone to him. And before I forget, his staff is also amazing. They are so extremely warm and friendly. If I should ever need anything involving plastics this is the only place I’m going. Thank you Dr. Walters for restoring my confidence and my body.
Dr. Walters did an amazing job on my chin/neck. I got neck lipo and a fat transfer to my chin. I was awake during the procedure and I would do it all over again. It was so easy!! I’m only a week out and my chin and neck look 100 times better and very chiseled. He is very professional and gives you the best option for your body. He is an artist at what he does and is the best plastic surgeon in my opinion. HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend!!!! Thank you Dr. Walters for upgrading my face and making me feel so much better with my confidence! And thank you to the staff for being so sweet and welcoming!!
When undergoing a fat transfer, you will be put under the appropriate kind of anesthesia. The type of anesthesia or numbing method will depend on how much fat tissue is being taken out, including the area where it will be placed. A form of liposuction is completed using a special cannula to precisely extract the fat, so it can be harvested, separated, and prepared (which preps the highest quality fat for syringes). After prepping the injection site, the extracted fat will be transferred into the area chosen. The process of injecting is completed in layers until the desired outcome has been attained. For some areas, numerous injections will be necessary.
What to Expect
After the transfer process has been completed, you will begin a healing phase. Remember there is generally more than one area of the body that needs to be carefully treated: the area involving liposuction and the injection sites. The recovery process may be longer if a larger place on the body was addressed. As an example, a fat transfer for lip enlargement will typically only warrant a 1 – 2-day healing period whereas a transfer to a more vast body part, such as the butt or breasts, can take more days. Each area will appear swollen with some possible bruising, but the outcomes can be noticed right away. Another perk is the area where liposuction was used will look slimmer. Fat grafting yields beautiful and lasting outcomes, but there will be some fat that reabsorbs back to the body. In some patients, another transfer may be necessary later on. There is almost no scarring that is noticeable with this treatment.
Take the Natural Approach
If you are looking to get more voluptuous lips or want to soften hollow areas or lines, this procedure may be a great option. Furthermore, a fat transfer is an outstanding option for the buttocks or breasts. This treatment offers many choices for adding volume and fullness.
