Fat Transfer to Increase Muscle Size
Fat transfer is the ideal procedure for men seeking to sculpt and enhance the natural curvature of their muscles. The procedure uses autologous fat (fat from your own body) to provide a natural look and feel to your underlying muscles. Fat grafting is a highly-individualized procedure with long-term results. This procedure can increase muscle size in the chest, abdomen, shoulders, or calves. It can provide an overall more sculpted or chiseled look, reduce fat in "problem areas," and boost self-confidence in the end!
Fat transfer is essentially a 2-in-1 body contouring procedure in which some areas are made smaller and others are bolstered. If you have suitable donor fat and haven’t been able to achieve your desired results with diet and exercise, you may be a good candidate for fat grafting. Men who are non-smokers and in good general health typically have the best outcome from the procedure. Dr. Harris will create a customized plan based on your body type and ultimate goals - you can even consider contouring multiple areas of your body at once.
Fat Transfer Procedure
Fat grafting is done as an outpatient procedure in our own state-of-the-art surgical center. Dr. Harris uses high-definition liposuction to safely and effectively harvest autologous fat (fat from your own body). Fat cells can be removed from anywhere unwanted bulges exist such as the hips, thighs, or buttocks. High-definition liposuction ensures the optimal rate for fat cell survival, giving patients better results.
The harvested fat is then purified and prepared for re-injection. Dr. Harris places the autologous fat directly into the desired muscles to increase their size.
Fat Transfer Recovery + Results
Fat transfer procedures are performed under either general anesthesia or via IV sedation and a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort. After anesthesia wears off and for several days afterward, you may experience some minor discomfort. However, fat transfer is typically well-tolerated. You can return to work in as little as 5-7 days, but full recovery can take upwards of 2-weeks.
Initial results can be seen immediately following your procedure. As swelling and fluid retention begins to dissipate, you’ll see continued improvements. Although the majority of swelling should be gone within several weeks, the final outcome of your procedure may take up to 6 weeks to be visible. The result is a naturally sculpted, athletic appearance. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle can prolong the outcome of your procedure for years to come.
