Fat transfer from an animal, can that be done and also can it be done by a nurse at her house?

This is a response to a question that I answered for a person who had a procedure by someone else:

Fat transfer from an animal is not something that sounds legal and is not a sound principle. Given that it was done at a nurse’s house sounds extremely fishy to me. That in itself is not legal unless she has established her home as a place to business and is certified to do these procedures.  To begin with RN’s aren’t supposed to inject fat in the first place. Fat from an animal will also be completely degraded by a person’s body and any results are likely due to scarring.
