Fat Transfer: The Natural Way to Enjoy a Breast Augmentation
What is a fat grafting breast augmentation?
Women often struggle with the idea of having too much fat in one area and not enough in another area, especially the breasts. For those ladies who would like to reduce their hips, thighs, and buttocks, and plump up their bosom at the same time, a fat grafting breast augmentation could be the way to go. Dr. English provides this procedure at his clinic in Little Rock, Arkansas.
How does Dr. English perform fat grafting to the breast?
Dr. English performs two procedures in one by first removing fat from the donor area and then injecting it into the breasts. Fat is removed via liposuction, which involves using a thin tube known as a cannula to suction fat away. This fat is stored in a sterile container before being transferred into a special injection tool that allows it to be placed into the breast.
Why choose fat grafting rather than implants?
There are many advantages to fat grafting:
- Fat from your own body is unlikely to be rejected by it.
- Dr. English may use your harvested fat in a greater number of ways, resulting in more possible breast shapes.
- Fat grafting of the breast is a minimally invasive procedure that comes with a decreased risk of scarring.
- Fat may be used to cover breast implants or re-form the mounds surrounding them, making this an ideal procedure for correcting augmentations that appear unnatural.
Who might want a fat grafting breast augmentation?
- Women in good health
- Ladies with sufficient fat in a donor area
- Reconstruction candidates
- Females who might be considering breast implants, yet would prefer a more natural solution
- Women with a history of normal mammograms who are not considered at risk for developing breast cancer
Following a fat grafting breast augmentation, you can expect a recovery period of about one week.

Transferring Fat to the Eyes
The majority of our Little Rock and Conway patients notice a dramatic increase in how their eyes look. This improved appearance is often accompanied by a feeling of tightness in upper or lower eyelid skin that may last a few weeks or months. Bags and bulges are significantly reduced. Patient may sometimes experience slight corrections in their eyesight, or regain some of their lost peripheral vision after removing excess skin that fully or partially covered the eye.
Those who have sunken hollows underneath their eyes can benefit by having a fat transfer procedure in conjunction with a chemical peel. This combination will provide more youthful contours from the cheek area to the eyelashes. In most cases, a loss in volume is also accompanied by cheek tissues that gravitate away from the outer rim of the orbital or cheek bone. For the past 10 years or so, fat transfer procedures to plump under eye hollows has been all the rage, and may provide exceptional results when combined with a mid-face lift or chemical peel.
Fat Transfer for Hand Rejuvenation
What is fat transfer and hand rejuvenation?
Our hands are rarely covered, and are therefore one of the most visible areas on our body. They are also one of the first to produce noticeable signs of aging. When young, the back of the hand is plump and full, but can decrease in volume as time goes on, resulting in a flat, bony appearance. To successfully rejuvenate the hand, Dr. English places integrated fat graft layers over the back of it, causing the skin to appear (and feel) thicker. Fat grafts in the back of the hand also restore youthful contours and disguises tendons and veins without hiding them completely.
During a fat transfer procedure, fat is harvested from an area where there is excess. It is then placed in another part such as the back of the hands. This procedure is also known by other names such as fat grafting, autologous fat transplantation, fat injecting, or microlipoinjections.
Am I a good candidate for fat grafting of the hands?
If you find yourself hiding your hands in public and wishing you had on gloves, then we encourage you to meet with Dr. English at his Little Rock practice to have him determine if you are a good candidate for fat grafting of the hands. Dr. English examines your hands and then determines what will be needed to renew your hands and make them appear more youthful and attractive.
How much do fat transfers and injections cost in Little Rock?
Each fat transfer and injection procedure is unique because it is performed with YOU in mind. Since your needs will be different from other patients, it will not be possible to provide you with an exact cost until after you meet with Dr. English the first time. Once he has established a treatment plan, we can then go over the cost and discuss which method of payment might be right for you. We accept cash, personal checks, and major credit cards, in addition to financing through CareCredit® or MedLoanFinance.com.
Fat transfers and injections are generally considered elective procedures, and are therefore not covered under most health insurance plans. As such, our office does not accept any form of health coverage.
