Temecula fat grafting offers individuals a natural way of supplementing the shapes of their bodies. While fat grafting is most often thought of as being used to enhance the breasts for females, it can be used in several other areas of the body to improve texture and create natural curves. It is also frequently seen being used in the buttocks as well as the hands and the face.
Temecula patients will want to check with a cosmetic surgeon to see if fat grafting is right for them. Because every patient is shaped differently, fat grafting may produce a variety of results based on the patient’s overall initial fat content and on the results that they hope to see. Patients should be advised that having fat grafting performed in the breasts or buttocks will not create as dramatic a result as using a silicone or other type of implant would.
A Temecula Tummy Tuck is considered a major surgery that will require general anesthesia in an operating room. Dr. Tavoussi uses the Pacifica Outpatient Surgery Center just north of his Newport Beach clinic location for his surgeries. Pacifica is a state-of-the-art surgery center where patients will be able to arrive in the morning, have the procedure performed and head home the same day. During the tummy tuck, the patient will be completely asleep. Dr. Tavoussi will make an incision between the two pubic bones and will lift the skin and underlying tissues of the lower abdomen. First, he will tighten the abdominal muscles to create muscle tone. Next, he will remove unneeded fat as well as excess tissue and skin before re-draping the skin and suturing the incision closed. In larger procedures, the patient may have one or two drains placed to collect any fluids.
