This type of training is extremely important for being able to create consistently great results for patients of all kinds.

Fat transfer has become the procedure of choice to sculpt curvy feminine silhouettes. Dr. Figlia is both an excellent liposuction surgeon, and a stellar fat transfer surgeon, both of which are required to create the ideal Butt Lift result.

This additional experience is important because it has given him insight into the nuances of how to get fat to survive and thrive after transfer.
