Also called fat grafting, fat transfer has changed dramatically in the last 5 years. The results are longer lasting and the cosmetic indications have expanded. Dr. Ewing has extensive experience in harvesting and injecting fat into the face and body. Fat is fragile and permanent with adequate blood supply, so it is vital to choose the right surgeon. Dr Ewing also specializes in Liposcupture which goes hand in hand with fat transfer.
It is the procedure where excess fat is removed from areas such as the abdomen, flanks, hips or thighs and, after special preparation, it is injected into areas of the body that need filling. Dr Ewing specializes in the use of the microfat grafting technique. The process requires gentle fat removal using low-vacuum liposuction and the use of thin, delicate, non-traumatic cannulas to protect the survival of each harvested living fat cell. The fat cells are then purified and slowly injected thru tiny skin incisions into the tissue of the recipient site utilizing a small syringe and cannula. Tiny droplets are placed throughout the tissues assuring that each transferred fat cell will have an adequate blood supply to achieve the permanent survival of the injected fat cells.
