Introduction To Fat Transfer For Body

Fat transfer involves taking fat from one area of the body and injecting it into another area in order to smooth out bumps, dents or skin surfaces. A relatively safe procedure, the highly skilled team at Sthetix have been performing fat transfer for decades with great results.

Who Is Suitable?

Many of our patients come to us for fat transfer to correct existing dents, lumps or uneven skin after accidents or surgery. We also have patients who come to us to correct existing skin defects but most commonly, our patients have just undergone cosmetic procedures (laser liposuction, Vaser liposuction and gynaecomastia surgery) and would like dents or lumps to be corrected. We have also used fat injection techniques to correct dents on breasts after cancer surgery, as well as to restore symmetry. Fat transfer can only be performed if you have an area from which enough fat can be taken to fill the defect. Please note if you lose weight after the procedure, the fat will diminish alongside your weight loss

Before Fat Transfer Surgery

Before surgery, there are several things we require so that your procedure goes as smoothly as possible.

One of the most important things is to stop smoking as smoke introduces toxins into the blood that can increase the risk of healing problems, skin loss and complications. We also ask that smokers stop at least 6 weeks before their surgery date and don’t start again until wounds have completely healed.

We also ask patients who are undergoing this procedure to stop taking oral contraceptive pills (alternative methods are fine), aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs. This is because some of those pills can increase the risk of bleeding. And finally, we ask that patients do not take off-the-shelf herbal medicines or nutritional supplements.

To ensure that you are fully prepared for the surgery, we will ask you to attend a medical examination at a pre-operative assessment clinic where certain tests may be carried out to ensure your safety during anaesthesia and surgery.
