Fat Transfer / Fat Grafting Plastic Surgeon Manhattan NYC

Fat transfer / fat grafting plastic surgery is offered by the tripe board certified Manhattan (NY) plastic surgeon, Dr. Adam Schaffner. The triple board certified NYC plastic surgeon is considered a fat transfer / fat grafting specialist. Sometimes called “Autologous Fat Transfer”, this plastic surgery procedure takes excess fat from one place — like your belly, waist, back, arms or thighs — and injects it into another place — like your face, breasts, buttocks, — where you’ve lost too much fat and desire more natural volume.

“Dr Schaffner is what we call a “doctors doctor”. Over the years, I have recommended him to patients, family and friends, and most recently myself. His level of expertise across multiple disciplines is superb, and I truly must state that his surgical skills are unmatched. His exquisite attention to detail, combined with a truly artistic ability is sought after by many, but accomplished by few. In my 30 years of being a Physician. I can safely say, without a moment of hesitancy, that you could not ask for a more gifted surgeon, extraordinary humanitarian, and compassionate human being”. ~ Google
