Fatten Up! How Fat Can Rejuvenate Your Body

Published 02/16/2017

We are always told that too much fat is a bad thing. But, what if your extra fat could be used to actually improve your appearance. With Dr. Ravi Somayazula’s help, it can! Taking advantage of new fat grafting techniques, Houston’s Dr. Ravi is able to use your own body fat to rejuvenate, shape, and contour your face and body.

How Does Fat Grafting Enhance Your Appearance?

Fat grafting slims first and enhances second:

  • Tumescent liposuction is used to remove unwanted fat from a more generous donor site—helping create a thinner and sleeker contour.
  • Reintroduced to the body, the added fat is able to build volume, definition, and shape to lacking areas.

How Can Fat Enhance Your Appearance?

Facial Rejuvenation

Volume loss, which can be caused by fat loss, is one of the most significant factors when it comes to facial aging. Replacing facial fat can smooth, boost, and rejuvenate your appearance by increasing volume as well as softening fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, nose, and mouth. Patients here in Houston love that the addition of fat to help achieve very natural results.

Abdominal Etching

As an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Ravi is able to use an advanced fat grafting technique to enhance the appearance of the abdominal muscles. Small pockets of fat from the abdominal area and around the waist are initially removed but then strategically placed and manipulated to mimic a more extensive abdominal muscle definition. Abdominal etching leaves you with a more clearly defined stomach that will appear far more sculpted.

Brazilian Butt Lift

A Brazilian Butt Lift is perhaps the best known use of fat grafting. By adding fat to your backside, you can achieve not only a larger buttocks, but also a more defined, and shapelier bum. 

At Body By Ravi Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics, fat grafting can also be used to enhance other areas of your body including the breasts, calves, and hands. Schedule your personal consultation with Dr. Ravi to learn how fat grafting can best enhance your appearance and figure.
