Fat Transfer takes your unwanted body fat and transfers it to areas of the body where volume is needed. If you’re looking for a natural alternative to implants and fillers, Plástica Tijuana Surgery Fat Transfer procedures could be the solution for you.
Fat transfer is a procedure to take fat from one part of the body, usually, the abdomen, hips, thighs or buttocks and transfer it to another part of the body, usually the breasts, face, or buttocks, to give back volume where it has been lost, or to add a cup size or two to the breasts.
You can now have a ‘natural’ alternative to breast and buttock implants with our Fat Transfer to the Breasts and Buttocks procedures. If suitable, you can achieve comparable results which may be permanent, unlike implants which would normally require replacing later on in life when you may not be prepared – financially, physically or emotionally – to have another surgery. The Plástica Tijuana Surgery expert Fat Transfer medical team have perfected this technique to achieve long-lasting natural-looking results.
In addition our Anti-Ageing Fat Transfer procedures to the Face and Hands plump and revitalize areas of the body that suffer heavy fat losses as we age – for a different kind of procedure and longer lasting alternative to dermal fillers with superior results.
Our Medical Team have performed many hundreds of procedures over the past years so you will receive expert care, experience and professionalism from Plástica Tijuana Surgery.

Finding the right procedure for you is our priority. If you are looking for the kind of boost that feels completely ‘natural’ and, in contrast to breast augmentation via implants, is minimally invasive, Fat Transfer could be the body contouring procedure for you. For those of you who would like to add volume to your buttocks, the procedure can really help shape the area to your desires safely and effectively.
Fat Transfer to Face and Hands Our face and hands are the first things people see and present a significant challenge for anyone trying to prevent fat loss which can leave our faces looking sunken and aged, while our hands look brittle with protruding veins, bones and tendons. Until recently, dermal fillers presented a temporary fix but with Fat Transfer procedures booming and offering patients the permanent results they’ve been looking we are spending more and more time treating patients with long-lasting results.
Ageing has its effects on everyone’s skin, and unfortunately due to nature’s way of tell us that we are advancing in years, skin, all over your body, can lose its volume and become loose and relaxed. Medical and scientific advancements have paved the way for natural alternatives to synthetic fillers and implant procedures.
When compared to fillers and implants, the results of Fat Grafting last 10 times longer – up to 10 years, and because the source of the ‘organic filler’ is already in your body, it is perfectly well tolerated in the long term.
What Can You expect? Some bruising and swelling of the grafted area and the donor site is expected, however, discomfort is mainly felt in the donor sites for only a few days and simple painkillers are adequate for pain relief.
The patient is encouraged to mobilize early and full activity is expected within two weeks, even in large volume fat grafts. Early return to work depends on the volume of the fat graft as well as the site of the graft.
It may be necessary to wear a pressure garment for the donor site for up to six weeks and you may be sent home with antibiotics.
