Enhance your self-image and improve your overall appearance with a fat transfer procedure from Quintessa. Fat transfer involves using liposuction to remove fat from one area of the body, purifying it and applying the fat to a more desired area like the breasts, butt, or lips.
Patients consider fat transfer procedures if they feel their facial areas have lost volume or appear creased and sunken. — but want a more permanent outcome than what temporary fillers can provide. It’s also a great procedure if for patients who want to improve the contour of their body, smooth out scars or body depressions, or just rejuvenate and volumize very specific areas.
Fat transfer has grown increasingly more popular as a way to simultaneously remove fat from unwanted areas of the body and improve other parts of your appearance. You can learn more at any of our Milwaukee and Madison locations during your first consultation.

WHAT IS FAT TRANSFER?
Fat transfer, also referred to as a fat grafting or fat injection, is a surgical procedure that uses fat from your own body as opposed to dermal fillers, to enhance other areas of your body. It reduces the chance of allergic reactions to foreign substances because it uses your own natural fat as opposed to a foreign substance.

FAT TRANSFER FAQ’S
It is very unlikely that laser vein treatment will get rid of facial or temporal veins due to the fact that there is such a high blood flow in these areas that the laser seldom can reduce the veins significantly to the point where you see a visible improvement. There are, however, other options depending on your skin type. One option is fat grafting that can improve the overall volume in the area and camouflage the veins so that they are less visible.
