Adivive Fat Transfer
Adivive Fat Transfer
• Full Face Rejuvenation with Adivive Fat Transfer
• Rejuvenation of the Hands
Dr Lanzer was the first in Australia to use the NEW Adivive device, which is a Fat Transfer System to help with face rejuvenation and breast augmentation and volume restoration to areas of the body.
What is an Adivive Fat Transfer?
The autologous fat transfer is an aesthetic procedure that takes fat from one area of your body and relocates it to another area of your body to restore lost or uneven volume and contours. The fat from an autologous fat grafting procedure is used as an injectable tissue to treat areas such as the face, buttocks and the hands.
Fat is usually taken from a person’s thighs, stomach or buttocks and is implanted into the breast or as dermal filler for the face. To obtain the fat during the fat graft, the cosmetic surgeon will use special cannulas, as used in cosmetic procedures such as the liposuction.
In an Australian first, in conjunction with the Palomar AdiviveTM Fat Transfer System and the unique Cellbrush Delivery System™, Dr Lanzer also offers cosmetic fat cell storage so that fat can be removed and used in later anti-aging procedures.
Once the fat is removed, it goes through special fat processing units The adipose tissue is then filtered and concentrated, making it ready for re-injection into the body. With the acquired fat, a cosmetic surgeon can provide an all-in-one treatment providing benefits such as contouring as well as rejuvenation.
Surgical procedures such as the fat graft do require a donor site, this means that the patient must have an area on the body where fat can be harvested.
The Fat is prepared through a special centrifugation treatment, so that it is concentrated and purified and thereby rich in Adipose Derived Stromal / Stem Cells. (ADSC)
The patient’s own fat is harvested through liposuction. The harvested fat is then condensed, filtered, and injected into the chosen location of the body requiring rejuvenation or augmentation.
Dr Lanzer’s clinic is the first in Australia to use the new Adivive machine that has just received TGA approval.
Dr Lanzer says the Adivive device has three major advantages:
• Fat rich in stem/stromal cells: The Adivive centrifuges fat under compact pressure with in-built filtering. Oils and unwanted tissue are separated leaving a more purified fat that is rich in ADSC (Adipose derived Stroma/Stem cells). The treated fat with its high concentration of cells and growth factors may enhance the longevity of the fat transfer.
• Enclosed System: The entire process fat extraction, separation, filtration and injection – is in a totally enclosed system which minimises the chance of contamination and adds an extra safety factor which is vital for breast fat transfer.
• Pressured delivery: The Adivive device allows for an air pressured even injection and filling of fat into the breast which helps produce a natural and even result. The fat is injected via a small tube and there are no stitches.

An increasingly large amount of patients now opt for Adivive fat transfer procedures. The Adivive machine produces condensed high quality fat from liposuction that can then be injected into areas of your body.

Face Rejuvenation with a Fat Transfer
Fat Transfer to the Face is used to for full facial rejuvenation and/or volume restoration.
The Adivive fat transfer system has now allowed Dr Lanzer to use fat injections for full-face rejuvenation. The concentrated fat that contains Stromal and Stem cells is injected into the face to improve the skin texture and shaping.
With age the cheeks can become more depressed and this can be improved by adding fillers such as fat via a fat transfer. Fat can also be used on wrinkled cheeks, around the eyes and on the lips. The fat can be stored for future injections, which may be done under local anesthetic.
What are the advantages of fat injections?
The main advantage is that your own fat cells are being injected. The fat transfer is also a minimally invasive procedure, which means most patients can return to their normal activities relatively quickly.
How long can the results last for?
Fat may last long term or for a few months. Unfortunately fat can also disappear immediately leaving no perceivable result. Repeat injections are always a good approach when considering fat therapy of the face and other areas.
Rejuvenation of the Hands
With age the skin on the back of the hands become thin and pigmented. The fat layer seems to disappear. Fillers such as your own fat or hyaluronic acid via the Airgent can give back some of the missing volume. The pigmentation can also be treated with creams and laser therapy as with the face.
Dr Lanzer warns that as with all grafts there is a difference between patients as to the longevity of the fat transferred. The fat may last forever as a more long term result or totally dissipate with no result. Some patients may find a slow reduction and benefit from repeat enhancements.
We offer a FREE, No Obligation Cosmetic Surgery Consultation and a detailed explanation of the procedure.
Dr Lanzer can email all patients a detailed consent form which provides information related to the surgery. This information is made available to all patients before surgery, allowing enough time for the patient to ask any questions they may have.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long will my procedure take?
Fat transfer procedures with the Adivive system can take as little as an hour for smaller areas in the face and hands, but treatment time depends on the size of the area treated.
Are there any risks or side effects?
Most common side effects are swelling and/or bruising. This may take up to a few weeks to resolve. Consult with your Dr Lanzer about procedural instructions, expectations, and other potential side effects.
How many treatments will I need?
You may achieve dramatic results after just one treatment but the number of treatments needed is determined by, among other things, the desired outcome and the size of the treatment area.
How long will my fat injection last?
The length of time that your fat injection will last varies. For some people it may be very long lasting. Unfortunately fat may not take in its new location and the fat may totally disappear immediately or over many months.
Repeat injections may be an option.
