Also known as a “fat grafting,” fat transfer is a procedure designed to recontour the face or body with fat taken from the patient’s own problem areas of the body, usually the stomach area. Fat grafting is a natural method to restore volume and reshape any problem areas you may have. Fat grafting is an outpatient procedure that takes about one to two hours. For small areas, only a hand held suction device may be needed for the fat transfer surgery. Otherwise, world class and high safety power instrumentation is also used by Dr Thaker for liposuction.

Liposuction uses hand held suction instruments to surgically and permanently remove fat from problem areas. Popular examples are ‘love handles’, ‘spare tire’ around the waist, ‘banana roll’ below the buttocks, ‘double chin’, and other areas of face and body. Dr Thaker trained in a personalized preceptorship with the world’s expert in tumescent liposuction, Dr Jeffrey Klein. Local ‘tumescent’ anesthetic solution is injected into the areas for liposuction, to maximize pain control and minimize bleeding. Dr Thaker offers this method of liposuction in Las Vegas, because of its high degree of safety.

Tumescent technique is regarded as the world’s safest liposuction. This is established over many decades, by hundreds of surgeons, and thousands of cases world wide. This allows Dr Thaker to not only minimize discomfort, but to maximize patient safety. The patient is comfortable and alert, communicating with the team as needed during surgery. There is no risk from general anesthesia. Nor IV sedatives, or ‘going to sleep and not waking up’ as some patients fear.

The best part about liposuction may be that the fat that is unwanted in one body area, can be used for fat grafting areas where the patient desires enhancement. Examples include hollow points on the face, or the breast or buttocks. Also, it is this very same fat tissue removed by liposuction, that is thought by some to contain regenerative cells or ‘stem cells’. This is one of the greatest areas of current medical research and development, as well as public interest. The harvested fat thus can provide structure to other areas of the body, once removed from the problem areas by liposuction.
