Procedures Made Better with Fat Transfer


Posted July 01, 2021 in Fat Transfer

When Dr. Scott Green explains fat transfer to patients unfamiliar, they are often excited to learn what the procedure entails. In addition to adding volume to enhance one part of the body, it simultaneously takes away unwanted fat from a different part of the body — a real win-win scenario. Among the procedures this top Sacramento plastic surgeon uses fat transfer to accomplish are:

Butt Augmentation

In the past, enhancing the buttocks meant inserting implants into each cheek. Over time, however, surgeons became more confident in another approach to butt enlargement: Brazilian butt lift (BBL). During this procedure, Dr. Green harvests unwanted fat from another part of the body — often the abdomen or thigh — via liposuction. He then purifies the fat before transplanting it into the buttocks. Because the fat comes from your own body, the procedure is safer, looks more natural and lasts longer than implants. Moreover, fat is easier for Dr. Green to shape into attractive contours.


When most people think of facelift surgery, they picture skin being pulled tighter to eliminate lines and wrinkles. However, there are multiple approaches to rejuvenating the face, including transferring fat to fill in the hollows that form with age. With just a bit of fat from your lower body, Dr. Green can volumize your face to restore youthful plumpness and fill in deep lines like the nasolabial folds — the lines that extend from the corners of the mouth to the edges of the nose.

Breast Reconstruction

Of the women who do choose to restore their breasts, many will utilize breast implants. In addition to breast reconstruction with implants, Dr. Green is also skilled at performing TRAM (transverse rectus abdominis muscle) surgery which uses your own fat, muscle and skin to generate breast mounds.

The decision to reconstruct the breast(s) after mastectomy is personal, and not a choice that all women make. The recovery period following TRAM is generally longer than it is for implants, but the results ultimately feel significant.

Chin Augmentation

Having a “weak chin” or poorly defined jawline can detract from the overall attractiveness of your face. Fortunately, there are multiple ways to surgically extend the chin. Dr. Green can perform this procedure by inserting a prosthetic implant or injection the patient’s own fat into the chin.
