How Does Fat Transfer Work?

At our practice in Phoenix, AZ, fat transfer, also known as fat grafting, can be used to fill out your buttocks or breasts. Dr. Robles can harvest fat from your abdomen, hips, back, or bra roll through liposuction. He can then inject the purified fat into the treatment area to resize it. Fat grafting is an effective and popular method of enhancing your body's contours without using implants.

Achieve Your Dream Body with Fat Transfer It's Easier Than You Think

Natural Look and Feel

Because fat transfer uses your body's own fat cells, the results look and feel very natural. The risk of an allergic reaction, infection, or other complications occurring is extremely low because the fat is from your own body.

Minimally Invasive

Compared to placing buttock or breast implants, fat grafting is a less invasive procedure that leaves little scarring and has a faster recovery time. Implants are more complex by nature and leave larger, more noticeable scars.

Treat Two Areas at Once

Fat transfer affords the unique opportunity to enhance two areas at once. If you wish to contour your hips or tummy, for example, fat can be harvested through liposuction and then can be used to shape your breasts or buttocks.

I had a great experience with Dr. Robles. He is very honest with his feedback and compassionate about his patients. From the start he was respectful with what I wanted done and reasonable. He also uses a precise technique that allows the recovery process to be much quicker than average! It has been almost a year now and I’m very happy with the results. Very grateful I chose him & would definitely (& do!) recommend to others.

Is Fat Transfer Right For You?

Good Health

Candidates must be in good overall health and be free of any medical conditions that could interfere with the healing process.

Adequate Fat

Candidates for fat grafting must have a sufficient amount of excess fat to be used for the procedure. If not, our plastic surgeon may recommend alternative options for augmentation.


Smoking significantly increases the risk of complications occurring during plastic surgery. We require patients to stop smoking for an allotted period of time before they can qualify for fat transfer.

What to Expect during the Fat Transfer Procedure

The fat transfer surgery usually lasts between two and four hours, depending on the extent of work being done.
The fat transfer surgery usually lasts between two and four hours, depending on the extent of work being done.

Before Treatment

Before the fat transfer procedure, we will provide you with preparatory instructions. These will include guidelines on eating and drinking as well as avoiding anti-inflammatory drugs, which can hamper your blood's ability to clot and interfere with your recovery.


Our plastic surgeon will numb the area where the fat is being harvested with local anesthesia. For patients who are nervous or very anxious, general anesthesia is also available to ensure your maximum comfort at all times.


After you are comfortable, Dr. Robles will make small incisions to access the fat deposits.


A small tube called a cannula is used to remove fat from the donor site using the power-assisted liposuction (PAL) system. Dr. Robles uses this innovative tool combined with the Tumescent technique for a more comfortable experience and excellent results.


The collected fat is placed in a centrifuge and washed in order to distinguish the healthy fat cells from damaged cells that will be discarded.


The purified fat is carefully injected into your breasts or buttocks to create your desired shape and size. The fat transfer surgery usually lasts between two and four hours, depending on the extent of work being done.

Achieve the Figure You Want

Understanding Fat Transfer Recovery

The recovery process will differ depending on whether you undergo a breast or buttock enhancement. Our plastic surgeon will provide instructions on how to recover quickly after a butt lift or breast augmentation, as well as schedule your follow-up appointments. Dr. Robles makes himself available 24/7 by phone to answer any questions or concerns you may have during your recovery process.

Side Effects

You should expect to experience swelling and bruising during the first week. This should begin to fade by the second week, but you are likely to still have some swelling in treated areas. In most cases, there will be a significant improvement in seven to ten days.


Patients should rest and refrain from any strenuous activity for at least the first few days following surgery. Most patients are able to return to work one to two weeks after the fat transfer surgery, but we encourage you to take your time and return at your discretion.

More Than One Treatment May be Necessary

In some cases, more than one procedure is necessary to achieve the desired results. Dr. Robles may need to overfill the treated areas, as some amount of the injected fat may be reabsorbed. As the final results become apparent, the grafted areas will appear fuller and softer, and your skin texture may improve as well. Touch-up procedures are sometimes required if a percentage of the fat does not take, but this varies from person to person.

Financing Options Are Available

Here at Robles Plastic Surgery, we don't want the cost of treatment to get in the way of your ideal body. We work with CareCredi®, a third-party financing company that enables you to pay for plastic surgery in monthly installments.

Whether you want a breast or buttock augmentation, our team will work with you to make treatment more affordable with payment plans.
