How Fat Grafting can benefit you as a Transgender Woman

Fat grafting is an especially innovative procedure because it uses your own natural tissue to rejuvenate, enhance and beautify. Fat grafting may be used for:

  • Reshaping facial contours
  • Plumping thin lips
  • Augmenting buttock shape and size
  • Plumping hollow, descended cheeks
  • Softening fine lines and wrinkles

While artificial materials like the ingredients used in injectables can be perfectly safe and provide great results, fat grafting has the advantage of removing some extra fat from an area like the abdomen, thighs or back. The fat is removed with liposuction from the area of excess. Essentially to clean the fat, it is placed in a centrifuge to remove impurities, then Dr. Beck strategically injects the fat into the treatment area to reshape and augment the area.

As a transgender woman, you can benefit from this procedure in the same way any person can. It slims down an area of extra fat and uses that natural material to beautify another area. If you are interested in facial fat grafting, the technique can benefit you by creating a more youthful look. And if it's one of your goals, fat grafting can soften your facial shape. Some transgender women want to play down the more angular aspects of their faces. Fat grafting to the buttocks shapes the derriere into a more attractive, feminine shape.

Why choose Fat Grafting?

The advantages of fat grafting vary by patient, but generally some of the typical benefits of the procedure are:

  • Uses only natural materials
  • Results look natural
  • May slim an unsightly bulge with which you are unhappy

The only way to know if it can benefit you is to discuss your transgender surgery goals and expectations with an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Beck. Dr. Beck takes an individualized approach to the care of each patient, and he wants you to be able to live your life more fully and confidently as a result of feminization procedures.

Realizing the Vision you have of your Authentic Self

Your feminization journey is deeply personal, and deeply connected to your unique gender identity and how you want to express it. Dr. Beck has cared for numerous male-to-female transgender patients over the years, and he compassionately guides each individual through the surgical and non-surgical options available.

During your one-on-one consultation, he institutes a no-rush zone in which he listens to what you have to say. He presents all of your options, as well as the pros and cons of each, and then empowers you to make choices about your care.
