Fat Transfer Procedure in Boca Raton | LIV Plastic Surgery by Dr. Andrew Ress

Fat Transfer is the ultimate filler material because it is part of you; just from another part where it was a nuisance to where it can be useful. At liv plastic surgery, we call it FTP, the Fat Transfer Procedure.

Fat transfer is a technique whereby tiny fat particles are harvested from one area of the body and placed in another. When this is performed for buttock enlargement it is called BBL. When applied to the face we call it FTP.

Fat transfer or grafting requires the fat particles to receive a new blood supply from the area they are deposited in to survive. FTP results in 80% take and if weight is maintained should be long lasting.

While there is more swelling after FTP, the results are more long-lasting and fewer injections of temporary fillers will be needed later on.
