Instant contour and volume.
Have you ever wished you could take fat from one area of your body and add it to another? This popular fantasy has come to life for many of our patients in Indianapolis. The process is called fat transfer. A fat transfer procedure takes fat from your own body and then strategically re-injects it into the skin to enhance fullness, fill deep creases, and build contour on the face or body.
A fat transfer procedure includes three basic steps:
1) A brief liposuction procedure to extract fat from one small area of your body
2) Purification of the fat
3) An injection of this fat into the appropriate areas
Patients from across the state travel to see our highly trained surgeon, Dr. Janet K. Turkle, for fat transfers using advanced techniques.

Smoking before or after surgery restricts oxygen to the body and can cause consequent problems with the healing process, including the increased risk of scarring. That’s why we require all patients to stop the use of all nicotine products for at least four weeks before and four weeks after a fat transfer in Indianapolis.
