Fat Transfer 

Bloomfield's Top Fat Grafting Specialist

Fat Transfer PictureDr. Roche is among the leading cosmetic surgeons in the Detroit area when it comes to fat grafting. Facial rejuvenation can be greatly enhanced if three-dimensional contouring is added. Fat can be removed from where it isn’t needed (jowls, neck, etc.) and placed (microlipoinjection) where it is needed (lips, nasolabial grooves, chin, etc.). Fat is the ideal filler because there is no concern of allergies, rejection or movement.

 

 

Advancements in Fat Grafting Techniques

In the ’90s, fat grafting’s reliability and longevity was greatly improved. Microlipostructure’s multiple thin strips of compacted fat injected in multiple crisscross layers provides lasting face building. In some areas multiple injections are needed (lips), in others, only one is necessary (eyes).

Often patients ask Dr. Roche to remove fat from one area, but put it to use somewhere else. It is possible to sculpt an area of excess fat and meticulously inject your own fatty tissue into areas where aging has caused fatty deposits to deteriorate. The most common areas of fat injection/fat sculpture are in the area of the brows or under the eyes to fill in a gaunt or sunken in look. Other areas include marionette lines or nasolabial folds. Fat grafting also can be applied to the hand, earlobes, breasts and areas that need lipo repairing.


Dr. Roche is one of the few surgeons in Michigan to utilize Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cells in his fat grafting procedures. This additional process further guarantees the success of his fat grafts and your speedy recovery. Platelet-rich plasma is derived from your own blood plasma, and therefore, there are no side effects. Learn More


Brazilian Butt Lift

One popular procedure in fat grafting is the “Brazillian Butt Lift” - an enhancing procedure designed to lift the buttocks to a higher position, add volume, and enhance its shape. The procedure results in youthful, prominent, perky buttocks, and a more sensual body profile. People of all ages are having the butt lift procedure. Dr. Roche removes fat from selected areas of your body, purifies the fat, and then re-injects the fat cells into your buttocks. The procedure is designed to fill the upper quadrant of your buttocks so that the butt appears lifted and perky. The resulting effect is more attractive and sensuous.

We have HVP, High Volume Precision Auto-Graft Infusion System.

How does this give you better results, you ask?

The system enables us to collect the fat in a completely closed and sterile system and minimize the amount of manipulation we need to reinject the fat into a new area. Precision Fat uses a closed system and minimal manipulation. The fat goes straight from the body into a closed container minimizing the exposure to the environment.  The pressure monitor safety system is of the highest of standards.  Dr. Roche would have nothing less than the best!

Precision Fat really shows its difference from standard fat grafting when we inject the fat into the new area. Unlike other systems, no syringes are required. Precision Fat pumps the fat into the treatment area, breast or buttock, using a special pump that tightly controls the pressure applied to the fat. Precision Fat eliminates the need to place the fat into syringes resulting in much less fat manipulation. Less manipulation of the fat means Precision Fat enhances the fat cells chance of survival.

Precision fat is also is a little faster, so the fat cells spend less time outside the body which also enhances the results.
Finally, the injection pump on Precision Fat tightly controls the amount of pressure the cells are subjected. By controlling the pressure to which the fat is subjected enhances cell survival. Controlling pressure also means Precision Fat reduces potential complications.

How is harvesting the fat different when using Precision Fat?

Precision Fat we collect the fat into a completely new sealed container. We also use less suction pressure with Precision Fat. The other important advance with collecting fat with Precision Fat is the container gently vibrates the fat. This enhances the separation of the fluids from the fat. Better separation of fluids means more fat and less fluid is injected into the area we are enhancing. Injecting more fat and less fluid injected means better results. The vibration also helps Precision Fat separate the fat cells from their supporting connective tissue fibers without damaging the fat cells. Having less connective tissue also helps to enhance fat cell survival.

ALERT!

Fat transfer has been a very safe and effective treatment for years.  Recently some questions have arisen with the frequency of fat transfer surgeries being performed.  Over aggressive surgical techniques/volumes could cause some problems.
