Fat Grafting After Smart Lipo?

SmartLipo, High Definition Liposuction and Fat Transfer in Men
Your problem does present a challenge, as you do need adequate fat to be harvested in order to achieve gratification with fat transfer/grafting to any other. What I suggest to my male patients who have relatively little fat in their abdominal area, is to take advantage of the sparse amount of fat that is there, and leave a little over the muscles to "mold and contour" enhanced muscular appearance using a special technique called "High Definition" liposuction. With this procedure, it is possible to seemingly "enlarge" such key muscles such as the rectus abdomens ("Six-pack muscle group"), obliques, pectoralis ("pecs"), deltoid, biceps, triceps, and the list goes "on and on"! I mainly use SmartLipo in men only for the purpose of TIGHTENING loose skin areas.
