Fat transfer or Lipoplasty involves the transfer of fat from one part of your body to another in order to remodel or enhance that body section. This can be used for various parts of the body including the face, breasts, hands, scars and the female genital area.
Your body’s fat is a valuable resource. It contains whole fat cells (which store fat), and stem cells. The fat that has been removed by liposuction can be relocated to other parts of your body where age, injury or weight loss has caused a reduction in volume.
When your fat is transferred to another part of your body, it will not be rejected nor will you be allergic to it. In Dr Goldbaum’s experience, the amount of fat that you will retain following such a transfer will vary between 40-80%. Occasionally, a top up may be desired to further improve your shape. Any left over fat that remains after your procedure, can be frozen and stored for later use.
With age there are many effects on the body including sagging, wrinkles and deep lines. Fat transfer can help to replace the volume that time, exercise and rapid weight reduction has removed.
Through the use of lipoplasty techniques, our expert surgeons can drastically improve the effects of the ageing face by reducing the appearance of lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. The fat that is transferred contains stem cells that will help to rejuvenate your facial skin to give you a more youthful appearance.
After breast feeding, illness, dieting or just plain ageing, breasts can be affected causing them to lose their shape, volume or size. The fat lost from these events can be replaced through lipoplasty. Fat transfer to the breasts can be targeted to specific areas such as cleavage and upper breast to restore the shape and size of the breasts whilst keeping a natural look.
These procedures are ideal for women who wish to restore their breast volume without having to have implants. They will achieve natural looking breasts, gaining a firmer, more lifted appearance.
With age, hands lose large amounts of the fat that is deposited on the back of them. Lipoplasty is designed to help smooth and contour the backs of your hands to give them a more youthful appearance. Our technique, when performed by our expert surgeons, is typically quick and easy and will usually see you in and out in a few hours. Some swelling and bruising can occur but will normally subside within a few days.
Depressed scars can be released and the depression filled with fat. A great procedure for those with ugly sunken scars.
Lipoplasty can help restore your youthfulness in this area. Please discuss this with our doctor.
