Liposhifting in Phoenix, AZ
The Body Sculpting Center offers liposhifting to residents of Scottsdale, Phoenix and the surrounding areas in Arizona.
Liposhifting is a new development that allows for fat transfer without ever removing the fat from the body. The procedure utilizes a new instrument from Buenos Aires, Argentina, which is not too dissimilar in looks from a miniature cheese grater, and, unbelievably, it functions similar to a cheese grater. The tool is called a Micro Graft Fat Cutter (MGFC) and it comes in three different diameters for different body areas.
How Does It Work?
The concept is relatively simple. A patient may have an indentation in the skin, whether it is from injury or a previous liposuction imperfection, or just something that has developed over time. In days gone by, fat would be harvested from one location and injected into the new location. Now, with the MGFC, fat can be broken down and pushed over to the area to be filled. The head of the MGFC has tiny holes all through it that, when moved around in a fat pocket, act as blades to separate the fat. The broken down fat is then released back into the body through the larger hole located at the bottom of the head of the unit. See figure below:
Who Is A Good Candidate For Liposhifting?
This method is ideal for indentations that often occur in the legs or buttocks, since there is usually a readily available supply of fat in a nearby area. This method is not suited for areas like the breast or face, or any place where there is not a nearby fat pocket. In this case, a traditional fat transfer is still the best method.
What Are The Risks?
As with any cosmetic surgery procedure, there is always some risk involved. However, since liposhifting requires only a single incision and the fat is never removed from the body, risk is greatly reduced.
