In the United States, billions of dollars have gone into trying to get rid of excess fat. Liposuction, diets, diet pills, running, jogging, stairmaster, treadmill, elliptical machine, weightlifting, etc. have all been part of this battle of the bulge.

However, you should know that there are a lot of wonderful things that can be done with fat! Now, I'm not condoning obesity or being overweight - it'll eventually wreak havoc on a person. I'm just putting it out there that in some cases, fat can actually be useful...and not just for those in cold weather climates.

In the realm of plastic surgery, fat can be used in many different ways. For reconstruction purposes, it can be used as a fat graft to fill defects that are caused by trauma or that are congenital in nature. For cosmetic purposes, fat can be used to enhance breasts, lips, cheeks, buttocks and reduce the signs of aging in the face and hands.

So just how is fat transferred from one area of your body to another? Get a step-by-step account of the procedure here.

Hello there! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share. Appreciate it!

I believe everything posted was actually very reasonable.
However, what about this? suppose you wrote a catchier post
title? I am not saying your content isn’t good., however what if you added a title that makes people want more? I mean Fat Transfer: Just How Is It Done? is kinda vanilla. You ought to look at Yahoo’s
home page and note how they create news headlines to get viewers
to click. You might try adding a video or a picture or two to grab people interested about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it might bring your website a little livelier.
