Fat Transfer


As we get older our faces begin to lose volume and our cheeks may look less full. Fat Transfer can add volume back to your face.  Performed under local anaesthetic, our surgeon will harvest cells, using a thin needle called a cannula from a fat rich area of your body, such as the abdomen or hips.

The fat cells are then centrifuged to separate intact cells from those that have been damaged.

The live fat cells are then injected into the areas to be treated using a very fine cannula.

The careful placement of the fat cells into tiny pockets of surrounding tissue with good blood supply creates the proper setting for the graft ‘to take’  Once the graft has taken, it becomes stable.

Currently this technique is most commonly used on the face but it has been used successfully on other areas such as back of the hands or buttocks.
