The first step of the fat transfer process is harvesting the fat. An area of the body with an excess amount of body fat, like the abdomen, thighs, or back, is chosen and then liposuction is performed in order to gather the required amount of body fat.

The fat must then be processed and purified. This is accomplished by placing the fat inside a centrifuge. The rapid spinning causes the fat to separate from the other liquids. The dead and damaged cells are separated from the healthy ones, resulting in a purified form of the fat that is perfect for grafting.

The now-purified fat is divided into equal portions and placed into sterile injection needles. The fat cells are then ready to be injected into the desired area.

Fat transfer can be used to enhance the appearance of multiple areas of the body. It is also an essential part of procedures like a Brazilian butt lift.
