Fat Transfer (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.
Fat Transfer Can:
- Increase muscle size in the chest, abdomen, shoulders, or calves
- Provide a more sculpted or chiseled look
- Reduce fat in ‘problem areas’
- Boost self-confidence
- Make clothing fit better
How Does It Work?
Fat grafting is done as an outpatient procedure in Image Surgical Arts’ surgical facility in Nashville, TN. Essentially fat is harvested through liposuction from the flanks, thighs, abdomen, or back and transferred to desired areas to increase muscle size. Dr. Brady Harris is a highly-skilled cosmetic surgeon with extensive experience in body contouring procedures for both men and women. He works meticulously with each and every patient to provide the best possible outcome with the least amount of downtime.
When Can I Expect to See Results?*
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 4-months 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.
Does It Hurt?*
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.
Am I a Good Candidate?
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.
