ATL, or “Autologous fat transfer,” is one way for patients to address fat in one area of the body and volume loss on the face. Also known as the Atgraft fat transfer procedure, this treatment can help patients correct certain areas of the face and body with one treatment. Dr. Fredric Stern of The Stern Center for Aesthetic Surgery in Bellevue, WA offers this as a solution for many of his patients who want to combat volume loss in the face and fat deposits elsewhere on the body.
Atgraft offers natural enhancements
Fat transfers have been used by doctors for many years to provide the most natural look for corrective cosmetic procedures and aesthetic augmentation. Instead of using synthetic materials to build up volume in the facial area and combat aging skin, Atgraft fat transfers allow from fat to be harvested from one area of the body and used to improve another. This treatment combines liposuction with fat transfers for a pleasing, natural-looking result that will last for years!
How can fat transfers be used?
In most situations, our team at The Stern Center for Aesthetic Surgery will use fat harvested from the body in the facial area to address volume loss that can occur naturally due to the process of aging. However, there are other areas in which this fat can be transferred. Some patients use the liposuctioned fat for:
- Natural breast augmentation
- Surgical site repair
- Acne scarring
- Hand volumizing
- Buttocks lift (Brazilian butt lift)
Is Atgraft safe?
Absolutely! Because the doctor is using natural fat cells from the patient, there are no concerns with allergic reactions. This method has been used for many years and continues to be a highly desirable option for patients who want to avoid traditional plastic surgeries.
