What is Fat Banking?

Fat banking is an efficient and highly sophisticated process of harvesting and storing your own fat for future use after a Colombian Liposculpture procedure. Patients can greatly benefit from using their own fat cells for future cosmetic or regenerative procedures without the need to have a second liposuction procedure. Patients can now use their body’s own fatty tissue as a natural filler, for example. We want you to have the ability to store your fat for future use to combat aging or for regenerative purposes, using solely your own cells.

How Eterna MD Will Store Your Fat

At Eterna MD, Dr. Mercado performs his trademark procedure known as Colombian Liposculpture. This exclusive technique in conjunction with his Body Jet® system allows him to remove fat cells from one area of the body in order to be re-injected on a different area for sculpting or rejuvenating purposes. All of these options are thoroughly discussed with Dr. Mercado during a one-on-one consultation to ensure the best use of the fat and the best outcome for each patient. The fat can be harvested, frozen, and safely stored for future use. Fat banking is performed immediately after the harvesting process.

The Benefits of Fat Storage

As we age, bone reabsorption and volume loss happen; unfortunately becoming more evident in different areas of the body. Using your own fat to remedy this issue can give you the most natural-looking results, and can decrease the risk of negative side effects that can sometimes come with implants. Fat banking can also be very cost-effective over time compared to injectable filler treatments for rejuvenating or anti-aging purposes.

Common ways to use your fat after fat banking include:

  • Natural Breast Augmentation
  • Facial Rejuvenation with Fat Transfer
  • Colombian Butt Lift
  • Regenerative purposes
