Dr. Becker is a pioneer in fat injection techniques. He has developed several medical instruments used in modern liposuction, including the Becker Greater cannula used for more effective fat cell harvesting. This cannula has multiple small openings that harvest small particles of fat for injection in fat grafting. The smaller particles are more evenly distributed when injected, resulting in a smoother look than older methods. The smaller particles of fat are also more rapidly vascularized (kept healthy through blood flow to the area).
To achieve optimum results in our Boca Raton Fat Grafting procedure, several injection procedures may be necessary.
Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer in Boca Raton, FL
Your own harvested fat cells are the perfect material to plump breast volume. In breast reconstruction, fat injections make it possible to smooth irregularities, or provide a layer of natural fat to cover implants for a more natural appearance. We do this through our fat transfer breast augmentation in Florida procedure. After a lumpectomy, fat injections may be the most effective, long term method by which to restore the look and appearance of your breasts.
Facial Rejuvenation with Natural Fat Injections
As the body ages, the natural fat layer beneath the facial skin diminishes, and the connective tissue loses elasticity. For patients who have facial areas that appear sunken or creased, our Boca Raton facial fat transfer injections can restore a smoother, fresher, more youthful look. As the injected fat has been harvested from your own body, there is no risk of the body reacting to the substance, as is possible (although rare) with dermal fillers.
Am I a Candidate for Fat Injections?
To be a candidate for this procedure, your body must have sufficient fat deposits to harvest. Fat transfer allows the fat cells to plump, firm, or fill in irregularities, depressions, or scars. Patients with adequate areas of excess fat are typically good candidates for this procedure.

Benefits of Fat Injections
One of the most significant advantages of fat injections is the use of your body’s natural fat, avoiding the risk of a reaction or rejection. Dr. Becker has developed a more effective cannula (the hollow needle used to extract fat), which aids in the fat cells transferred becoming viable, as well as producing a smoother look.
Recovery from Fat Injections
Every person is different in the length of time required to fully heal, but in most cases recovery will require about one week of healing and rest before returning to your usual business or social activities. Any bruising is typically over during the second week, but some swelling may remain. Two weeks off work is recommended. Minor swelling can persist for longer. Makeup can be used to camouflage any redness in the area.
