Fat Transfer

Board Certified Cosmetic Laser Surgeon Serving Reston, D.C, Tysons, Ashburn, Virginia

How is Fat Transfer useful?

Fat Transfer refers to the process of taking fat from one area of your body and injecting it into another. This procedure is a long-lasting structural filler, using your own body fat to reshape and refresh your appearance. You can greatly reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, creases and folds that form in the skin, often causing you to look tired, angry or upset. Fat transfer may also be used to help fix and improve body proportions and surface depressions and irregularities.

Q: Where does the fat come from?
A: Fat transfer is a wonderful, safe and non invasive method of restoring volume by transferring fat from an area that has an abundance of fat into an area that has lost fat volume, in order to fill the fat deficit and restore a youthful contour. During your consultation Dr. Ali will assess what site will be best for you.

Q: Where do I go to get the fat removed?
A: The fat is removed manually here in our office using a sterile syringe and light suction to avoid damage of the fat cell. You will be given local anesthesia to minimize any discomfort while Dr. Ali is removing your donor fat. The fat will be cleaned and prepared for re-injection to your desired site.

Q: What is treatment like?
A: Dr. Ali will ease under your skin to instantly smooth out your wrinkles or folds and to add fullness and volume to your desired area. Topical or local anesthesia may be applied if necessary to minimize any discomfort.

Q: Is there any scarring or stitching?
A: No stitches are required. There may be a minimal amount of bruising or swelling, but generally, patients may return to work the following day. We recommend using Sinecch, a natural supplement to aid in the healing process that we offer here at WellMedica. A pressure bandage is applied to the donor site and sometimes to the recipient site to prevent blood clots and swelling.

“Dr. Dima is very knowledgeable and very compassionate. She always makes me feel like I’m a priority and makes me so comfortable about my treatments. I think she would be great for teenagers and their skin issues and I would recommend any of my family to go see her.” *

– Kendra

“Dr. Ali not only fixed the physical appearance of my scar, but healed the psychological and emotional scar it caused. She  genuinely cares about the wellbeing of her patients and I trust her implicitly.” *

– B. Paget

“Dr. Ali is not only a beautiful, highly intelligent woman but also an amazing healer. She treated my face, ravaged over time byrosacea, coupled with multiple broken facial blood vessels and transformed what was ruddy, red and sometimes purple hued skin into a clearcomplexioned healthy and totally makeup free face, and I thank her most graciously.” *

– Chris D.

“I think Dr. Ali is very honest and upfront. I didn’t feel I had to get 10 opinions before making a decision. I never feel pressured. Everyone is professional and top notch, the type of people you want to work with. I think the whole office atmosphere is wonderful, I feel friendly with everyone that works there and I love the products. When you don’t come often you feel guilty. It’s usually a family affair to come see Dr. Ali; it’s me, my daughter and granddaughter, it’s a 2 hour drive so we make a day of it.” *

– Bonnie P.

“When I see Dr. Ali I am treated superbly in everyway, I would not go anywhere else! I wish my family lived locally so they could see her too.” *

– M. Stewart
