Best Age for Fat Transfer
Is there an ideal age for Fat Transfer? Dr. Solomon discusses this common question:
The younger the person is, the more likely that they will retain; one their elasticity is much better, and the fat that you transfer is probably much, much healthier, and you can get better results with a younger patient. Most of the patients that we do are maybe 30 to late 50’s. As you get older, the elasticity of the skin is less and then you have more droopiness of the skin or ptosis of the buttocks. So, it makes it a little bit less optimal.
Fat transfer is a procedure that utilizes a patient’s own fat to restore volume to desired areas of the body such as the buttocks or face. During the procedure, the patient’s fat is removed using liposuction from an area where there is extra fat to utilize, and then re-injected back into the area where fullness is desired, such as the buttocks. Because it utilizes a patient’s’ own fat, fat transfer gives natural looking results and adds youthful contour to sunken or sagging areas of the body.
