Facial Dermal Fillers (Fat Transfer)

The fat transfer is a popular procedure for skin rejuvenation and even breast augmentation, so this is a treatment that is executed often at The Dr Lanzer Clinic. To learn more about the fat transfer, its cost, and the procedure itself, please read the information provided by the Dr Lanzer team below.

What Is a Surgical Fat Transfer?

A surgical fat transfer is a procedure where fat is harvested from one part of the body and reintroduced in another part of the body. The treatment is also known under different names; this includes the fat graft and lipomodelling.

The aim of a fat transfer is two-fold. Firstly, the treatment can remove unwanted fat from an area of the body where fat has accumulated; this may include the abdomen or the thighs. Secondly, the harvested fat is used to change the shape of the treatment area or to provide skin rejuvenation.

Patients considering a fat transfer in the future do not necessarily need to have this procedure in conjunction with a liposuction. Patients can acquire the liposuction first, and then store the harvested fat in the fat bank owned and operated by The Dr Lanzer Clinic. When the fat is required in the future, it can be obtained from the fat bank for the patient’s treatment.

What Is the Cost of the Fat Transfer?

Like most cosmetic procedures these days, the cost of the fat transfer is variable and subject to various factors; this includes surgeon experience, the clinic you choose, the size of the treatment area(s), and more. Some clinics will also charge separately for aftercare and additional treatment sessions.

To ensure you are receiving an accurate cost estimate, it is best to obtain one during a consultation with your cosmetic surgery clinic. At the Dr Lanzer Clinic, patients can benefit from a free consultation before their treatment takes place; this gives patients the chance to speak to Dr Lanzer and acquire a cost estimate without committing to anything.

How Is the Fat Transfer Performed?

As we mentioned earlier, the fat transfer involves two treatments: one treatment where fat is harvested and one treatment where the fat is injected. To ensure patients get a full overview of what is involved, we will discuss both below.

The first part of the fat transfer is the harvesting of fat. During this part of the treatment, tiny cuts will be made on the skin; this is required for the thin cannula to gain access to the treatment area. Once the fat is prepared for removal with tumescent fluid or ultrasound, the surgeon will remove the required fat through a suction process.

Once the fat is harvested, it is transported to a special lab. During this time, the fat is concentrated and filtered; this removes the unwanted compounds and ensures a purer fat, which will be introduced into the target area. Once the fat has been treated, it can be stored in the fat bank or used for a fat transfer.

When the patient comes in for a fat transfer, the surgeon will use a needle and a syringe to inject small amounts of fat in the treatment area. Since the needle goes through the skin, most fat transfer treatments will not require any sutures.

Does a Fat Transfer Require an Overnight Stay?

Most patients can leave the clinic shortly after having the fat transfer. Of course, patients must expect some recovery time post-procedure, so they must follow the instructions provided by the Dr Lanzer Clinic to avoid complications.

One of the essential parts shortly after your treatment is having someone to drive you home. Even if you have the procedure under a local anaesthetic, you will not be fit to drive at this point. Patients can only resume driving once they are comfortable enough to do so.

During the first couple of weeks after your procedure, you can experience some bruising and swelling on and around the edges of the treatment area. Bruising and swelling will start to dissipate over the course of the recovery process. Of course, it is a good idea not to evaluate the results until these side-effects have subsided.

The visibility of results and disappearance of side-effects is different for each patient. Some patients heal quickly, while others need a little more time. During your recovery, it is always best to listen to your own body and not push yourself too hard.

When you experience any unusual symptoms during your recovery, it is advised to contact the Dr Lanzer Clinic. Your own peace of mind is important, even if the unusual symptom turns out to be harmless.
