There's no more natural way to enhance your appearance than with tissue from your own body. Referred to as fat transplantation, fat transfer and autologous lipografting or lipoaugmentation, fat grafting is the organic way to enhance your beauty. Highly qualified, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mahlon Kerr offers fat grafting at his Austin plastic surgery practice. This treatment provides a versatile solution that can improve the appearance of the face, buttocks and breasts.

How it Works
Performed as an outpatient service either in Austin or Round Rock, your fat grafting procedure may involve local or general anesthesia, depending on the amount of fat transferred.
Dr. Kerr will begin by using liposuction to carefully remove fat cells from those areas of your body with a little extra fat. Donor sites include typical problem areas such as your abdomen, love handles and thighs. Fat removed during breast reduction or tummy tuck may also be used. Then the surgeon purifies the removed fat cells and injects them into the area of desired enhancement.
Treatment will likely result in temporary swelling and bruising. All swelling should subside after about 1 to 2 months, at which point your physician will assess your results to determine whether you would benefit from repeat treatments.

Facial Fat Grafting
Your face is obviously a very important aspect of your appearance. Wrinkles and lax skin can make you look aged, fatigued, sad or angry. Popular injection sites include the cheeks and under-eye area, lips and around the nose, mouth and chin. The treatment adds youthful volume, smoothing out lines and wrinkles.
Brazilian Butt Lift
Whether genetics, pregnancy or weight changes gave you a flat or unshapely derriere, fat grafting can improve your lower-body contours. Dr. Kerr can further accentuate your bottom by removing donor fat from strategic areas around your buttocks, such as your waist, muffin top area and thighs.

Fat Grafting for Breasts to Restore Lost Volume
As an alternative to breast implants, Dr. Kerr can enlarge your breasts and improve shape more naturally and less invasively using your own fat. Benefits include very little to no scarring and a quicker recovery than with breast augmentation using implants.
Fat grafting is used to enhance the appearance of breasts immediately following a lumpectomy or mastectomy or as a follow-up treatment to enhance results of reconstruction. Dr. Kerr relies on his breast surgery experience and aesthetic abilities to improve shape, symmetry and volume and to create a natural look and feel.
