Why Do You Need Fat Transfer Treatment?
For many patients, this is a ‘win-win’ surgical treatment: not only do they get the benefit of larger breasts, plumper cheeks, or a more rounded derriere, but they also get unsightly fat removed from other areas of the body, for a more streamlined look. However, the real benefit lies in the fact that, rather than relying on chemical fillers and foreign bodies, fat transfer is an entirely natural alternative, with no chance of an allergic reaction.
What is the Aim of Treatment?
The Fat Transfer Procedure aims at the following;
- To make you look younger and happy.
- To reduce facial scars such as those caused by acne.
- To improve facial deformities such as hemifacial atrophy.
- To plump up areas of the face that are sunken or sagging.
- To add volume to some by removing excess fat cells from other areas of the body.
Who is a Candidate?
The following can be good candidates for this treatment:
- A person should have good physical and mental health
- There should no wrinkles and fine lines
- The people with deep creases on the face or it has lost volume.
- Having realistic expectations from the procedure.
- The people who want to revise the scars and improve body contours.

Which Technique is Used?
Most of the time, the liposuction technique is used to extract unwanted fat from the body. The fat thus collected is processed and then injected into another part of the body where it is needed.
How to Prepare for the Treatment?
It is quite easy to prepare for Fat Transfer. Just follow the instructions from the doctor:
- Maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle.
- Discontinue the use of alcohol and cigarettes.
- Discontinue the use of aspirin and blood-thinners.
- Take the lab tests and medicines prescribed by the doctor.
How is the Treatment Performed?
Under either a local or general anesthetic syringes are used to remove the fat from the designated areas. The fat is then fully cleaned to remove impurities before being injected into the treatment area.
Although the results will be visible almost immediately, it may take a few sessions to achieve the desired effect, as there is a limit to the amount of fat that can be injected into one area in one session. Your surgeon will talk you through a treatment plan at your first consultation so you will know exactly what to expect to achieve your cosmetic goals.
