Ok, Finally my time has come. Ive been seriously considering a BBL for six months now. Dr. Gabay is one of Philadelphia’s leading Cosmetic Surgeons. He is triple board certified & has over seventeen years experience. It was easy to get someone on the phone & I was scheduled for my consultation within a week. I had my consult the staff was friendly. I filled out my paper work & waited 15 minutes in the waiting area then I went back to see Dr Gabay. He answered all my questions I viewed his work & it was game over! I knew I wanted it... I desire to have a coke bottle figure. My behind is square and I have no hips at all.???? Im feeling sooo excited but nervous at the same time....????????????????????

5. Why does it look like the fat is diminishing

5. Why does it look like the fat is diminishing between 1-3 months after the transfer?
Fat is living tissue. We are essentially transplanting a fat graft (a small amount of fat tissue). Since it is a living and functional tissue, it needs to establish a blood supply in its new home. During this period, the fat is living but the fat cells haven’t started storing fat (which is what fat cells do to make them plump). So during this period, the fat grafts deflate (1-3 months following the procedure). Then starting 6-9 months following the procedure, they begin acting as they normally do and they start to re-inflate and get more full. This is why patients look best 1-2 years following a fat transfer. This process is the same for hair transplants and even trees/plants that are transplanted.

I've been doing some research on Dr Gabay for some time now. After going to a few other Doctors, I decided to go with Dr Gabay! He knows exactly how I want to look and Im confident he can do it.
