Award Winning New York Surgeon Discusses Body Sculpting History and Procedure

New York, New York (PressExposure) January 19, 2012 -- Dr. Theodore Diktaban- a 32 year plastic surgery veteran—is no stranger to the fat injection process. Since it has so many uses (reconstruction, facial modification, breast modification, etc), this is a "go to" procedure for most plastic surgeons.

Unfortunately, like many aspects of plastic surgery, there is a plethora of misinformation on the procedure. Dr. Diktaban, hailed as the "nose job expert" and featured in the New York Times' "SuperDocs of New York," has an intimate knowledge on the subject and can clearly communicate the benefits to all potential patients.

Fat transfer is a simple process. It consists of relocating the patient's own fat from one section of the body to the next, allowing for virtually limitless customization. Unlike other forms of plastic surgery, the fat transfer surgery works with what's already there, ensuring the end result is 100% natural.

Additionally, the surgery has been around for over 100 years. In those 100 years, it's been modified many times, making it an effective surgery for both body sculpting (cosmetic) and reconstruction work. In 1980, as the surgery gained popularity, a new technique was introduced, allowing surgeons to relocate fat using a "micro injection." For the first time, this allowed surgeons to inject fat into even the most delicate areas. And thus modern plastic surgery was born.

The procedure is a relatively simple one and heals quickly. After you've discussed what part of your body will be modified, the surgeon will take fat from one area of excess and implant it into the target area. For example, the most common areas to take fat from are the thighs, buttocks and stomach. By using this process, a skilled surgeon can effectively sculpt your body like a block of clay, taking fat from one area and injecting it into another.

With fat transfer surgery, expect a relatively quick and easy recovery period, but realize the modified area may appear to be "puffed up" for a short time after the procedure. This is because your body only retains a certain percentage of the fat, so more fat than what's necessary will be injected. After a few weeks, you'll begin to see the changes as they were meant to look. So in the meantime, don't panic if you go home looking different than you had expected to.

With an expert surgeon like Dr. Diktaban, fat transfer surgery is an easy way to repair damage or get that look you've always wanted. And because of the minor swelling after the procedure, if you're worried about people seeing you, the winter season is the perfect time to get work done.
