Fat transfer is a natural way to add volume to your face
As we grow older the volume in our face starts to decrease, causing wrinkles and hollowness to form in regions that were previously plump. This loss of volume can increase the appearance of age, even, in extreme cases, resulting in a “skeletal” appearance. Fat Transfer Surgery is an ideal treatment for restoring the ageing face or to treat patients who have lost volume in their face due to stress, age or weight loss. Our surgeons were amongst the first to begin practising this procedure and have perfected the technique to ensure you achieve your desired result.
Fat transfer requires the harvesting of fat from somewhere on the body, commonly taken from the love handles (hips), outer thighs or tummy, (usually from an area you normally find it hard to lose from).
Harvested fat is processed to remove water and free oils, and then placed accurately into recipient tissue using microcannulas.
We utilise the most up-to date techniques to ensure that your results last as long as possible. The length of your results will be affected both by the area that is being treated as well as the technique being used. In the lower face area and the cheeks, fat transfer results have been known to remain visible up to three years and occasionally even longer! Refraining from smoking is one of the very best steps you can take to ensure the longevity of your results.
This is a low risk procedure that thousands of people undergo every year. That said, like every surgical procedure, fat transfer does carry some degree of risk. All potential risks and the steps that we take to minimise them will be discussed with you in detail during your consultation.
