Fat Transfer

In Tucson, AZ



What Is A Fat Transfer?

When you lose weight or go through the aging process, it's common to lose the natural roundness and shape in certain body parts. A new way to restore this lost volume is through an aesthetic procedure known as a fat transfer. This treatment utilizes an advanced closed fat transfer system from Wells Johnson to extract fat from a place on the body where you don't want it, so you can move the fat to a specific place that could use additional volume. A fat transfer can be performed on widespread areas, such as the breasts or buttocks, or on delicate areas, such as the lower eyelid, cheeks, or lips. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. James Rough incorporates the most effective grafting techniques for performing fat transfers. This body contouring treatment at James Rough, M.D. Plastic Surgery in Tucson, AZ creates natural-looking, attractive outcomes.


What Are The Benefits Of A Fat Transfer?

Fat transfers are an excellent alternative to synthetic dermal fillers and offer a number of benefits to help enhance your appearance. Some of the positive outcomes you can expect to see from fat transfers at James Rough, M.D. Plastic Surgery in Tucson, AZ includes:

How Does A Fat Transfer Work?

During a fat transfer, you will be placed under some form of anesthesia. The exact type of anesthesia or numbing method will depend on how much fat is being taken out, including the location where it will be reinserted. A form of liposuction is first performed using a thin, special cannula to delicately remove the fat, which will then be separated and purified through a centrifuge. After preparing the injection site, the extracted fat will be transferred into the area chosen for the additional volume. The injection process is completed in layers until even smoothness has been attained. For certain body parts, multiple injections will be necessary.

I had a mommy Makeover on October 7th performed by Dr. Rough,. After visiting 4 Plastic Surgeons in Tucson and Scottdale I decided to go with Dr. Rough. He and his staff are, hands down, the best! Not only I am beyond happy with the results he is a very compassionate person. I called him with a few questions after my surgery and he always answered in a timely manner. He listened to me and validate my feelings. I highly recommend Dr Rough when it comes to Plastic surgery.

Dr. Rough and his entire staff are incredible. From start to finish, they are compassionate, empathetic, and thorough. From the consult to the operation I felt I was taken care of by professional, genuinely caring people. I’ve had a few cosmetic surgeries and I always get sick from the anesthesia, Dr. Rough’s anesthesiologist is the most wonderful sweet human being I’ve ever met. Everyone that is on his team is amazing and just as sweet. You will be in good hands with anything Dr. Rough does. I am writing this review day of surgery and I am feeling great. I highly recommend Dr. James Rough if you are looking for a skilled and caring surgeon with a team that will take care of you from start to finish. I cannot wait for my results!
