Fat transfer removes fat using Liposuction from areas of the body that have an excess such as the abdomen, buttocks or thighs. The fat is then injected to another area of the body to restore volume or to smooth wrinkles. There are many advantages with this technique: it is safe and it lasts a long time and it is effective filler that can be used for a number of different procedures.
In this procedure which is usually performed as a day case under local anaesthetic, small incisions are made, not only to remove the fat with liposuction, but also to re-inject the fat into the graft area. After surgery you will be prescribed a course of antibiotics. You may also be advised to take a mild painkiller if you experience any discomfort. There will be some bruising and swelling which may last for a week or so. Strenuous exercise should be avoided for two weeks but you may return to work after a couple of days. The stitches will be removed after five to seven days.
The chances of long-term survival of the fat cells are much better if very small amounts are put in at a time. Therefore, multiple sessions are usually needed to achieve the best result.
Our price for Fat Transfer is from £2,600.
The procedure is usually performed under a general anaesthetic at our specialist clinic and usually involves a one night stay in hospital.
