Fat Transfer / Fat Grafting

Home Plastic Surgery Fat Transfer / Fat Grafting

Fat transfer or fat grafting is a plastic surgery procedure in which a patient’s fat cells are harvested and transferred to another body area where they are required. The stubborn fat that is hard to get rid of through diet and exercise is removed using Fat Transfer in Dubai. The harvested fat is transferred to areas with a bony appearance to help you achieve ideal body contours.

Why Do You Need Fat Transfer Treatment?

For people who are not satisfied with their body contours, fat transfer is a win-win solution. It not only removes excess fat from your body but also transfers it to the areas that require fat cells. You can have larger breasts, plumper cheeks, or a more rounded bum for a perfect body shape. The real benefit of fat transfer lies in the fact that it is an entirely natural alternative, with no chance of an allergic reaction, rather than relying on chemical fillers and foreign bodies.

What is the Aim of Treatment?

Fat transfer Dubai aims to;

  • Reduce acne scars.
  • Correct facial deformities such as hemifacial atrophy.
  • Improve the body curves and shape.
  • Plump up the sunken or sagged facial areas.
  • Add volume to some areas by removing excess fat cells from other body areas.

Who is a Candidate?

You can be a good candidate for fat transfer treatment if you meet the following criteria:

  • A person should have good physical and mental health
  • There are deep creases on your face, or it has lost volume.
  • You have realistic expectations from the procedure.
  • You want to reduce facial scars and improve body contours.
  • There are depressions in various areas of your body.

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. Therefore, fat transfer is also referred to as fat injections in Dubai.

How is the Treatment Performed?

  • In the last step, the fat is injected into the body areas that require augmentation.

Although the results will be visible immediately, it may take a few sessions to achieve the desired effect. There is a limit to the amount of fat that can be injected into an area in one session. Your surgeon will talk you through a treatment plan in your first consultation. Therefore, you will know what to expect to achieve your cosmetic goals.
