Nikko Cosmetic Surgery Center Pioneers Breakthrough Fat Transfer Technique.

“Fat injections offer tremendous advantages over conventional procedures. It’s a scarless, non-invasive technique with minimal recovery and no rejection issues. We're actually using the patient's own fat and cells, not a foreign object."

Nikko Cosmetic Surgery Center offers a new body shaping procedure that utilizes regenerative stem cells to graft fat to muscle and tissue, providing higher-quality, longer-lasting results compared to traditional cosmetic surgery techniques. Industry experts believe fat grafting is the future of cosmetic surgery and will replace traditional implants forever.

“Fat injections offer tremendous advantages over conventional procedures,” says Dr. Nikko. “It’s a scarless, non- invasive technique with minimal recovery and no rejection issues. We're actually using the patient's own fat and cells, not a foreign object. The appearance of fat over implants is also very natural, which is mostly what patients are looking for.”

Fat grafting requires two separate procedures. The first is a body contouring technique that removes unwanted fat through liposuction. That fat is then centrifuged with stem cells and automatically injected into the muscle beds or tissue of the patient to shape and augment the area of their choosing. The inserted fat containing stem cells continues to regenerate for six months, resulting in a faster healing time and an 80% retention rate – an increase from the 70% retention rate of conventional fat-injection techniques.

“Right now, FAMI (Fat Autografting Muscle Injection) to the buttocks is one of our most popular procedures,” says Nikko. “With this technique, we use fat injections to lift, contour and augment the buttocks instead of utilizing conventional implants. However, any area can really benefit from the FAMI technique. Patients can restore volume in the face or hands for a softer, younger look.”

Currently, few doctors offer fat grafting as an option. Many still rely on more traditional techniques; something that Dr. Nikko expects will soon change, starting with his Houston plastic surgery office. “Our fat grafting with stem cells option has become so popular; it won’t be long before the cosmetic world moves towards the transition.” For example, natural breast augmentation continues to increase its popularity and although it won’t completely replace conventional implants, fat transfer to the breast will become an accessible option.
