Fat Transfer

Fat-Transfer, also called Lipofilling is a procedure which involves the extraction of fat from any location on the body (donor site), and its reintroduction into the desired treatment area. Fat Transfer is mostly used for rejuvenation and sculpting of the face, breast, buttocks, genitals (vaginal rejuvenation and penis enlargement).

Fat Transfer

By using your body’s own fat, there is no chance for an allergic reaction. Extracted fat can be stored and injections can be repeated for maximum benefits.

Fat Transfer can be successful in filling areas with tissue depression caused by scars, facial lines, erasing wrinkles, improving eyelids, cheeks, chins. It is commonly combined with Facelifts, Mini Facelifts, Mid-Facelift, Chin and Cheek Enhancement, breast augmentation (with or without implants), buttocks reshaping.

Lipofilling can give you a rejuvenated appearance and a much more masculine look (when intending to enhance masculine features).

Consultation

Your consultation for plastic surgery with Mr Ferrando is an important step in the process of considering and undergoing cosmetic or reconstructive procedures.

This initial meeting allows the patient and surgeon to discuss goals, expectations, and potential outcomes, as well as evaluate the patient’s eligibility for the desired procedure. It will be an opportunity to ask questions or clarify any concerns that you may have. You will look at the “before and after” images of previous patients and get further information you need to make a decision.

Mr Ferrando will review your medical history and conduct a physical exam. He will then discuss all options suitable for you and explain each stage of the procedure or treatment. The exact procedure depends on the anatomy of the patient.

Our team believes that a well-informed, comfortable patient is one of the most important elements of the process. Whether you move forward with surgery or simply learn more, Dr Ferrando is looking forward to meeting you!

Procedure

Mr Ferrando will extract fat from your body (waistline, lower stomach, inner thighs and knees) using a small sterile syringe and light suction to avoid damage to the fat cell membrane. The fat will be purified and then safely injected into the areas of the body you desire to have sculpted and rejuvenated. This injection process is done in thin layers starting behind the muscles and working forward.

The Fat-Transfer procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis under local anaesthetic combined with oral or I.V.sedation. It takes 2-3 hours to complete depending on the exact procedure required.

This injection process is done in thin layers starting behind the muscle groups and then working forward.
Sometimes a second or third fat injection is needed, depending on each person.

After this initial fat transfer, you may be scheduled for several more visits, as the body will naturally absorb about 60% of the transferred fat.

The Fat-Transfer procedure requires no stitches but a compression garment and dressings may be applied to the donor area.

Anaesthesia and length of the procedure

The Fat-Transfer procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis under local anaesthetic combined with oral or I.V.sedation. It takes 2-3 hours to complete depending on the exact procedure required.

Recovery

After the surgery, you may a little sore and experience bruising and swelling at the donor area. Mr Ferrando will provide you pain relief medication and antibiotics to ease your discomfort.

You may need to wear the compressive garment for a few weeks to support the healing process. It is very important to walk around as soon as you can, to avoid the developing of blood clots.

You should feel much better 1-2 days after surgery, but patients are recommended to have at least 2-3 days off work to allow their body to rest and recover comfortably at home. Any strenuous exercise or activities should be avoided for 3-4 weeks after surgery.

Follow up appointments will be made for you after surgery, but if you have any questions, or you should feel unsure about anything, please contact Mr Ferrando and he will gladly talk to you. The well being of his patients is of utmost importance to him.

Although, basic information about Fat-Transfer is provided on this website, the best way to get answers to specific questions about your individual needs is to schedule a personal consultation with Mr Ferrando

Risks and Side Effects

All surgeries carry certain risks and even though they are rare you should be aware of them before making your decision. Mr Ferrando will talk you through any possible risks and side effects at his consultations as they will vary depending on the patient’s anatomy, age, condition and lifestyle.

During his procedures and treatments, he does everything possible to minimise the risk of complications by practicing a meticulously detailed approach and applying his world-class training background.

My friend, Dr. Ferrando was able to collect fat from around my body and replace it into my breasts.

Fat transfer is a safer way to enhance or enlargen your breasts as he doesn’t use any foreign body – it is all you!
