Fat Transfer Surgery

Fat Transfer Surgery

Also referred to as ‘Lipofilling’ or “Autologous fat injections” Fat Transfer is a surgical procedure that aims to deliver enhanced body contouring.

Growing in popularity, fat transfer surgery uses the fat extracted by Liposuction from one area of the body, to be injected somewhere else in the body, improving the shape of another area.

Fat Transfer Procedure: How it Works

Liposuction can be performed on areas such as the hips, stomach, upper arms, inner thighs and knees. The fat is then placed in a special machine and spun, separating the fat from any blood or other fluids. Areas such as the breasts, jawline or cheeks are usually places where the extracted fat is then injected back into the body. More than 50% of the transferred fat will be reabsorbed before the full results from this procedure settle down, meaning that more than one lipofilling procedure may be required before the desired outcome is achieved.

One can expect the full fat transfer results to be visible within 3 – 6 months. After 2 weeks you can commence massaging the areas of liposuction. Follow-up appointments will be arranged at 1, 2 and 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months and 1 year to closely monitor your physical well-being.

Frequently asked questions

Fat transfer surgery is suitable for most people who maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle and are looking to recontour certain areas of their body. You must, of course, have the available fat deposits! If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, then you may not be suitable.

This procedure will result in tenderness of the treatment areas, which will subside over a period of 2-3 weeks. The operation is performed under a suitable anaesthetic and a course of pain relief will need to be completed post treatment.

Swelling, bruising and temporary numbness are common side effects with fat transfer surgery which will fully subside within a matter of weeks. Although scarring is permanent, it will be relatively small and fade over time. Infrequent complications are bleeding (haematoma), infection, delayed wound healing, fat necrosis and calcifications, asymmetry, dimpling and discoloration of skin at liposuction site.

Fat transfer surgery may require a period of 2 weeks recovery time to allow for successful healing, with 7 – 10 days off work. Driving will be possible after 2 weeks. It may need up to 3 weeks before travelling abroad and up to 6 weeks before returning to the gym.
