With our Marina del Rey fat grafting procedure, Dr. Macias simultaneously smooths away stubborn pockets of fat, while enhancing body features that need a little extra volume – such as the breasts, buttocks, and more.

What is fat grafting?

Fat grafting, also known as a fat transfer, is a surgical procedure that has become incredibly popular among both men and women. Using a cutting-edge system, Dr. Macias first performs liposuction to extract unwanted fat. He then re-injects the excess volume into strategic areas to create a more harmonious figure for our Marina del Rey patients.

The benefits of fat grafting

  • A natural approach to enhancing the body and filling in imperfections
  • Minimal scars created during liposuction – and none at the injection sites
  • Long-lasting results that are extremely natural, in both look and feel

FAQ Fat Grafting

How many fat grafting sessions will I need?

Fat transfer can help you achieve your desired results with just one treatment. However, for more dramatic breast augmentation results, Dr. Macias often recommends two or more procedures.

What is the HVP system?

The HVP system used during fat grafting procedures is a closed system, meaning the fat is not exposed to the air, decreasing the chance of infections. The roller pump injection mechanism increases safety and the fat survival rate ranges from 50-80%, strictly dependent on the area treated.

How much does fat grafting cost?

The cost of a fat grafting procedure varies, depending on the experience of your surgeon, the facility where you’re having the operation, necessary medical tests, the type of anesthesia used and more. When it comes to treatment from Dr. Macias, the average fat grafting patient spends between $12,000 and $20,000.
