What is NaturaGlow® Fat Transfer?

NaturaGlow® Fat Transfer is a fat grafting technique pioneered by Dr. Alizadeh. It is a procedure in which fat cells are harvested from one area of the body and then transferred or injected into another area to restore volume, improve contours, or correct deformities. NaturaGlow® Fat transfer offers several advantages, including using the patient's own fat can provide natural-looking and long-lasting results. Additionally, since the fat cells come from the patient's own body, there is no risk of allergic reactions or rejection.

What It Is

As we age, many of the pro-growth cell functions that we enjoyed in our youth begin to diminish over time.  This aging process can also be accelerated by sun damage, poor nutrition, smoking, lack of exercise, and other lifestyle choices. Growth factors such as PRP and other cell signaling proteins are basically the triggers and stimulants that control cell function. The concept of bioregenerative medicine involves harnessing these cell-stimulating molecules to rejuvenate aging or damaged cells in the body.

Adinizer® technology is a revolutionary advancement in fat grafting that offers a state-of-the-art system for processing adipose tissue. This innovative system allows for efficient and effective processing of fatty tissue, which is then used for autologous fat transfer procedures. The unique and patented process used by the Adinizer® system ensures the viability and quality of the harvested fat cells, resulting in a higher rate of successful fat grafting procedures.

This technology has been shown to significantly improve the outcomes of fat transfer procedures, providing patients with more natural and long-lasting results. With Adinizer® technology, plastic surgeons and cosmetic practitioners can achieve exceptional results and provide their patients with the highest level of care.

One of the major benefits of the Adinizer® technology is that with the one system, it can resize fat in different aliquot sizes. This allows the physician to customize a regenerative fat transfer procedure to the individual patient at the point of care. This gives physicians the ability to use fat transfer as they would dermal fillers.
Unlike dermal fillers, a fat transfer is permanent. Because of its patented protocols that allow physicians to concentrate adipose (ACx) and enrich fat grafts, the Adinizer allows physicians to offer their patients improved results with a fat transfer. Our groundbreaking approach to aesthetics leverages the latest advancements in stem cells.


Puregraft fat grafting is a revolutionary technique in plastic and reconstructive surgery. It involves using Puregraft technology to harvest and purify fat tissue from a patient's body. It is then used to enhance and contour various areas, such as the face, breasts, and buttocks. The purified fat is injected into the targeted area, integrating with the surrounding tissue to create a natural-looking result. Puregraft fat grafting has many advantages over traditional methods, such as a higher survival rate of the transplanted fat, reduced risk of infection, and minimal scarring. It is a safe and effective way to achieve natural-looking results without synthetic fillers or implants. By pairing Adinizer with PureGraft, we can achieve 15x the level of stem cells to promote rejuvenation.

What is the Process of NaturaGlow® Fat Transfer?

Dr. Alizadeh has considerable experience performing fat transfer, and over time he has perfected the NaturaGlow® Fat Transfer procedure. It involves three essential steps, which he performs with meticulous attention to detail: first, he uses a proprietary technique to gently harvest, process and purify, and administer the fat with microcanulas for the desired result.

Donor Site Selection: Dr. Alizadeh identifies an area of the body with excess fat that can be used as a donor site. Common donor sites include the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks.

Harvesting: The fat cells are removed from the donor site using a gentle liposuction technique. This involves making a small incision and using a cannula (a thin, hollow tube) to suction out the fat cells.

Processing: Dr. Alizadeh gently processes these cells to obtain purified, healthy ones. These critical steps ensure that the living cells obtained from harvesting will remain viable when they are reinjected into another area of the body, typically the breasts, cheeks, hands, chin, and lips.

Injection: During the injection phase, Dr. Alizadeh uses extremely small cannulas to ensure smooth, even distribution of the fat cells into the target areas. Residual swelling and bruising from fat transfer usually resolve in three days.

What is the recovery process for NaturaGlow® Fat Transfer?

The recovery after Dr. Alizadeh’s fat transfer procedure can vary based on the specific areas treated. Typically, patients can expect some swelling and bruising in both the donor and recipient sites, which gradually subsides within the first week or two. Compression garments or dressings may be recommended by Dr. Alizadeh to help minimize swelling and cold compresses can be applied to reduce discomfort. 

It is important to limit physical activity and avoid strenuous exercise or heavy lifting during the initial recovery period to promote optimal healing. Over time, the transferred fat cells may establish a blood supply and achieve long-term survival, but it's important to understand that some fat may be reabsorbed by the body. 

Follow-up visits will be scheduled to monitor progress and address any concerns. Each individual's recovery experience is unique, and it's essential to follow Dr. Alizadeh’s instructions for the ideal healing and results.

Benefits of Autologous Fat Grafting for Metropolitan New York Patients

New York plastic surgeon Dr. Kaveh Alizadeh specializes in NaturaGlow® fat transfer, also known as fat injections, Adipocyte Derived Regenerative Cells (ADRC), or autologous fat grafting, which helps NYC-area patients remove unwanted fat from one area of their body and replenish it in another. Dr. Alizadeh routinely uses fat transfer to add volume and contour to the buttocks, hands, and face or to recreate during breast reconstruction the breast's natural shape and feel. While Dr. Alizadeh focuses on safety and superior aesthetic outcomes, his fat-grafting patients embrace the dual benefit of this effective, long-lasting procedure, which improves contours and rejuvenates the body and spirit.

 Frequently Asked Questions About NaturaGlow®

Is NaturaGlow® fat transfer a safe procedure?

NaturaGlow® fat transfer is generally considered safe when performed by a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon. As with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks and complications, such as infection, bleeding, asymmetry, or fat absorption. Discussing the procedure thoroughly with your surgeon and following their guidance can help minimize risks.

How long do the results of NaturaGlow® fat transfer last?

The longevity of NaturaGlow® fat transfer results can vary among individuals. While some of the transferred fat may be reabsorbed by the body, a portion usually establishes a blood supply and survives long-term. The longevity can depend on factors such as the technique used, the area treated, and individual characteristics. Your surgeon can provide a better estimate of how long you can expect the results to last.

Will I have scars after a NaturaGlow® fat transfer?

NaturaGlow® fat transfer typically involves tiny incisions for the liposuction and injection sites. These incisions are usually small and result in minimal scarring, which tends to fade over time. However, it's important to follow proper wound care instructions to promote optimal healing and minimize the risk of visible scars.

Can NaturaGlow® fat transfer be combined with other procedures?

Yes, NaturaGlow® fat transfer can often be combined with other cosmetic procedures. It is common to combine fat transfer with procedures like facelifts, breast augmentation or reconstruction, and Brazilian Butt Lifts (BBL). Combining procedures can provide comprehensive rejuvenation or enhancement and minimize overall downtime.

Is fat transfer a painful procedure?

Fat transfer is typically performed under local or general anesthesia, ensuring that you do not experience pain during the procedure. However, some discomfort or soreness may be experienced during the recovery period. Your surgeon may prescribe pain medication or suggest over-the-counter pain relievers to manage any postoperative discomfort.

Can NaturaGlow® fat transfer be reversed or revised?

In certain cases, fat transfer can be revised or corrected if desired. If the results are not as expected, additional fat transfer or alternative procedures may be considered to achieve the desired outcome. It is essential to have open and honest communication with your surgeon to discuss your goals and any potential revisions.
