sydney cosmetic clinic

With a fat transfer, Sydney patients have access to a two-in-one procedure that will enhance specific areas of the body, using fat from areas with unwanted fatty deposits. Also known as fat grafting, this safe, long-lasting, and natural process uses your own tissue to create natural-looking results.

The process removes the risk of allergic reactions that can sometimes occur with dermal fillers.

What exactly is fat transfer via liposuction?

The fat grafting process involves a Tumescent Solution that is injected into the donor area, after which a determined amount of fat is removed via a small syringe. This fat is processed to remove unwanted fluids and oils, then injected into the recipient areas.

Only tiny incisions are required for this procedure, and you can often head home shortly afterwards. However, you must be accompanied by an adult. It is also important to note that transfers of small volumes of fat maximise the chances of the survival of the fat cells and are recommended over larger procedures.

Frequently Asked Questions

Would you like to know more about fat transfers? See our helpful FAQ section for more information:

Is the procedure painful?

While every patient experiences varying levels of pain based on their personal threshold, the fat transfer procedure is considered to be quite minimal. Only small incisions and injections are required, and the use of anaesthesia will help to create a comfortable setting for you during surgery.

Does fat transfer wear off?

While we expect the procedure to be “permanent”, however, over time the natural cycle of ageing can cause the fat to diminish. Each patient will have a different, individual response, which should be considered.

When can I return to work?

Depending on the intensity of your role, you should be able to return to work after 1-2 days. You should expect some swelling and bruising, and some patients may require a little longer.

How much do you have to weigh for a fat transfer?

As a general rule, patients with a BMI of 22 or higher are considered to have enough fat for the fat transfer treatment. However, a personal consultation will be required to ensure you are a suitable candidate.

What are the advantages of fat transfer over other techniques?

The fat transfer offers the benefit of a two-in-one procedure, slimming an area of the body while enhancing a different location. You avoid any external objects in your body (i.e. implants) while creating a more natural look and feel for the area that is being enhanced.

What are the risks of this procedure?

Every invasive procedure carries risks, however, those related to a fat injection are quite low. This minimal fat grafting surgical technique can utilise either local or general anaesthesia for patient comfort and will result in some level of bruising or swelling. Visible scars will be minimal and inconspicuous depending on which body areas are being worked on.

Will the fat grow?

Fat transfers undergo the normal dynamic cycle of fat cell life, experiencing shrinkage and loss of volume, followed by regrowth. It will take roughly six months for the fat to stabilise; however, only patients Smoking presents the most significant risk to your final result as this can affect the blood supply to the grafted tissue.
