Fat Transfer Revision in Beverly Hills, CA
Board certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Nima Shemirani is recognized for his many years of experience and his proven record of success. He has received numerous awards including Vital’s Patients’ Choice Award and was featured on CBS The Doctors. Fat transfer is a delicate and advanced procedure that should only be completed by an experienced Board-certified plastic surgeon with superior experience. When fat transfer cosmetic surgery is incorrect, you may develop uneven and less than satisfying results like bumps, lumps, scars and more.
Dr. Nima’s primary goal for corrective fat transfer surgery is that you will experience a healthy, natural and youthful appearance. At Eos Rejuvenation, we exclusively use the best technology, which is Puregraft when performing a Fat Transfer. Puregraft improves the quality of transfer results using a closed system to purify the fat tissue in a sterile environment. Many plastic surgeons risk poor results by using lower-quality systems that are non-sterile. Contaminants may cause bumps and other unsatisfying results that require revision surgery. Dr. Nima recommends Puregraft for longer-lasting, pure, organic results and a faster recovery.
Who is a Candidate for a Fat Transfer Revision?
Dr. Nima will discuss the benefits and limitations of revision plastic surgery. If you have a good skin tone, have unwanted fat, are in good health and have realistic expectations, you may be considered a good candidate for revision surgery. The surgery may improve the appearance of irregularities like dimples, dents, unwanted ridges and distortions. If you need revision work, Dr. Nima invites you to call for a free consultation in Beverly Hills.
Typically, fat transfer revision surgery involves removing too much fat that was injected in the first place. Patients often complain that their cheeks are too full, or their under eyes. Dr. Nima uses advanced micro liposuction techniques to remove unwanted fat in a safe manner. Additionally, a previous fat transfer may leave you with hard lumps or nodules. These can typically be treated with safe injections in the office. If those do not work, then those nodules may need to be removed under local anesthesia.
How to Prepare for a Fat Transfer Revision?
Dr. Nima will provide you with surgery and preparation details at your consultation. Specific tests like a CBC (complete blood count), CMP (comprehensive metabolic panel) and EKG might be needed if you are to have sedation anesthesia. You will be given a list of over-the-counter medications to avoid like Aspirin and NSAIDs. Dr. Nima will also do a complete review of your medical history along with your current subscriptions. If you are a smoker, you should quit smoking several weeks before the operation.
What to Expect During Recovery from a Fat Transfer Revision?
Moderate bruising and swelling are typically resolved within one to two weeks. The revision results will become evident as the new fat is incorporated into the living tissue, or the results settle after fat removal. Specific instructions will be provided by Dr. Nima at your consultation.
