Fat Transfer London

The most natural filler you can use to enhance your breasts, buttocks, hands or face is your own fat! It will feel just like a natural part of your body and can last for years. Moreover, if you don’t like the idea of a foreign substance being in you, then fat grafting maybe an option for you.

With Fat Grafting (also known as Fat Transfer) you will need to have a liposuction procedure with VASER in order to obtain excellent quality of fat cells, suitable for transferring to another part of your body. That means that you actually have to have some excess fat on you in the first place – this is typically on the tummy, hips or thighs.

Then once that area has been treated (and is now slimmer!), the fat is then carefully prepared for injecting to enhance your buttocks or breasts or hands or even face.

FAQ’s about Fat Grafting

How long will the results last?

Fat cells are just like any other cell in your body – they are living and need a blood supply. About a third of the fat injected back into your body may not develop its new blood supply and then it will shrink away naturally. This means that after your original surgery, you may see a reduction in the size of your augmentation compared to immediately after surgery. After about 3 months, whatever fat has survived will last you forever.

How many cup sizes will my breasts increase by?

If you have fat transfer to your breasts, then you will naturally wonder how much bigger your breast will become. Patients who are happiest with their surgery are those that are looking for a subtle re-inflation of their breast which may have shrunk after childbirth or weight loss. The most cup sizes one would go up after a single surgery would be 1 cup size, but for most people, its about restoring the lost volume in the upper part of the breast.

If you want to go up several cup sizes then you should consider breast implants as the most cost effective option.

What happens if I gain weight?

The newly placed fat cells will respond just like any other fat cells. So if you gain weight, then the new fat cells will also increase in size. This may mean bigger breasts, buttocks, or fatter hands or face. Conversely, if you lose weight, then these areas will shrink. It is best to maintain a stable weight after fat grafting surgery.

What are the risks?

Any surgery carries risks from the anaesthetic and also the surgery itself (i.e. bleeding, infection, scarring). Fat Grafting surgery can carry a slightly increased risk of infection and so antibiotics are given to help reduce this risk. There is also the small risk of all the fat not surviving and so it all wastes away, deeming the procedure unsuccessful. This is quite rare and is due to your body not being successful in developing a new blood supply for the transferred fat.

In breast transfer, sometimes it is possible to develop what are known as “oily cysts” which are small collections of fat which can be felt as breast lumps. It is because of this risk that any woman over 40, or with a family history of breast cancer, must have a pre-operative Ultrasound or MRI scan of their breast to rule out any lumpy tissue before surgery.

How many surgeries will I need?

Most patients only require one procedure to be happy with their results. If you are looking for considerable changes in size to your breasts or buttocks, then you may need more than one surgery, scheduled 6-12 months apart.

Is there a risk of cancer developing in my breasts?

There is absolutely no evidence to suggest this at all. However, long term data is needed to be absolutely certain.
