Dr. Schwartz uses a unique closed-loop system for his signature fat transfer at his Beverly Hills, CA and Dubai office. Where the fatty tissue never leaves the sterilized environment. The fat is purified in a sterilized cannister and injected into the treatment area using the same equipment, resulting in a faster more sterile fat transfer process.


Most clients are able to return to work or school less than a week after their procedure. However, vigorous physical exercise and strenuous sports should be avoided for at least four to six weeks. The final results of your fat transfer will be visible at 6 months post op. Because liposuction uses a small needle to harvest and inject the fat, there will be no visible scarring.
