Fat Transfer After 5 Years – What to Expect

As we age, it becomes more common to have excess fat in unwanted places. Sometimes, this may be the result of lifestyle choices, but it can also be the result of a slower metabolism caused by perimenopause and menopause. Fat tends to become more and more stubborn the older we get, which can be frustrating for women of all shapes and sizes. Estrogenica helps define your beautiful body with fat transfer, taking unnecessary fat out of one place and moving it somewhere else on the body where you may want more volume. Our experienced team creates a holistic treatment plan based on your desired aesthetic goals, medical history, and personal preferences to ensure that your fat transfer procedure is a seamless part of a healthy lifestyle.  Let’s learn how fat transfer can help you and what to expect from fat transfer procedures long-term.

Overview of Fat Transfer

Estrogenica’s signature fat transfer procedure is the Beautifill Fat Transfer and Liposuction procedure. This innovative procedure allows us to contour the body whichever areas, both medically and aesthetically will benefit, in one go. We harvest fat from areas like the abdomen, flanks, and thighs, and inject it back into areas like the breasts or buttocks if such a procedure would result in a more balanced, sculpted body.

Evolution of the fat transfer procedure

Fat transfer has been a popular aesthetic procedure for a century, and today, it’s safer and more natural than ever. Modern technology allows us to preserve more fat cells than ever  during liposuction, maximizing the results our patients seek. While fat transfer procedures actually began in the early 1900s with a mixture of human fat cells and ram fat cells, today all of the fat cells come from your own body. For a natural approach, thus reducing the chances of complications.


Long-Term Results of Fat Transfer

One of the key considerations for individuals contemplating fat transfer is the longevity of results. Within the first six months, the transplanted fat establishes a blood supply, contributing to its long-term survival. It is expected that only 50%-75% of the fat cells will survive the surgery, and your Estrogenica Health 360 surgeon will plan for that accordingly.

Once fat establishes a blood supply, it’s much more likely to survive for years to come. After that, we continue to see high rates of success when it comes to lasting results from our Beautifill liposuction and fat transfer. How well  fat transfer procedure results last and what to expect from fat transfer is largely dependent on the health of the patient and the target area for fat transfer – two things you can discuss with your Estrogenica Health 360 provider.

As the body ages, some of the transferred fat cells may be reabsorbed by the body. However, a significant portion will remain and contribute to sustained enhancement. Routine maintenance procedures may be recommended to address any potential volume loss and optimize the aesthetic outcomes.


Maintaining and Enhancing Fat Transfer Results

Preserving the effects of Beautifill fat transfer is reliant on maintaing a healthy lifestyle post treatment. Eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly, and avoiding fluctuations in weight are crucial elements in ensuring the longevity of the results.

We also recommend avoiding smoking,excessive sun exposure, and putting unnecessary pressure on the treated area. Additionally, you can help maintain your fat transfer results by regulating stress levels, getting enough sleep, and taking good care of your skin to keep the treated area looking good.

Estrogenica Health 360 is here to help maintain a healthy lifestyle. We believe well-being goes beyond outward appearances, and we’re excited to guide you not only on your aesthetic journey, but on your path to comprehensive wellness.


Frequently Asked Questions 

Is it normal for fat transfer results to change over time?

A little bit, yes. While fat transfer is considered permanent, it can’t stop the effects of aging – so you may see small changes over time. It is important to know what to expect from fat transfer to ensure accurate results.

Can I undergo additional fat transfer procedures after 5 years?

Yes. However, your Estrogenica Health 360 provider will want to assess your current results and discuss realistic expectations for an additional procedure with you before any other procedures are booked.

Are there other maintenance procedures I can undergo?

Yes. Estrogenica offers non-surgical treatments that are not permanent in the way fat transfer is, but can be a good supplement to fat grafting down the line. These include Botox and dermal fillers.
