Adivive Fat Transfer
Adivive Fat Transfer
Adivive Fat transfer has gain significant interest in the last few years. Fat is taken from
the body of a person via liposuction and then is injected into areas such as the face,
under scars or depressions or in the buttocks for the so called Brazilian Buttock.
One interesting feature of Adivive Fat transfer is that it gives a lift to the tissue and as a result the face can be lifted like a face lift. Likewise placing the Adivive Fat transfer in the buttocks lifts the buttock as well.
WHERE IS FAT TRANSFERRED TO THE FACE?
Adivive Fat transfer is when fat is taken from any area in the body, processed, and then injected into the face. It is particularly useful around the cheeks where aging occurs due to loss of volume in the midface. It can also be injected into the lips, eyebrows, or anywhere under the skin.
WHERE DOES THE FAT COME FROM?
Liposuction is initially performed from the hips or stomach but really the liposuction can be be done anywhere that there is fat. Using the tumescent liposuction method there is no bleeding.
The fat is then treated with a cleaning process and spinning. Often Dr Lanzer will extract the stem cells from the Adivive Fat transfer And then reinject those cells into fat that is about to be transferred back into the body. The stem cells may enhance the survival of the fat. The process of treating the Adivive Fat transfer cells after the liposuction is all performed in an ultra sterile environment in Dr Lanzer’s Day theatres and in a biological sterile cabinet.
Dr Lanzer will assess your body to decide from which area to perform the liposuction and then which areas will do best with the fat transfer. The fat is thinned and concentrated and then put in fine syringes. Dr Lanzer will often use a devise for the Adivive Fat transfer that allows him to role out fine micro injections of the fat. This may encourage the blood supply to the fat and give the fat transfer a better chance of taking.
IS LIPOSUCTION REQUIRED EVERY TIME ONE PERFORMS FAT TRANSFER?
Dr. Lanzer has the latest Cytori fat bank which allows him to scientifically freeze fat cells in the same way that banks store bone marrow and plasma blood. Particularly, chemicals are applied to the fat so that they can go into a deep freeze of 190 degrees celsius below 0. Fat can be thawed at any time and re-injected.

WHAT ARE THE OTHER AREAS THAT FAT IS USED?
Fat is often used in the buttocks to give the so called Brazilian buttock. It can also be injected into dents and depressions.
IS THE FAT TRANSFER ALWAYS PERFORMED AT THE SAME TIME AS LIPOSUCTION?
The Adivive Fat transfer patients have a choice of having the injection immediately with the liposuction or having the fat frozen and repeated at a different time.
WHAT INSTRUMENT IS USED TO INJECTION THE FAT?
Dr. Lanzer uses a very fine cannula attached to a device called a cell brush. This allows him to place micro-droplets of fat in the areas that he requires during the liposuction procedure.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENT BETWEEN ADIVIVE FAT TRANSFER AND A DERMAL FILLER?
Dermal fillers are man-made fillers that are finer than fat and are ideal for around the lips and eyes. Fillers last often around 18 months.
HOW LONG WILL ADIVIVE FAT TRANSFER LAST?
Adivive Fat transfer could last forever or only a few months. Sometimes fat does fail as it is a graft and once can never guarantee its full survival.
DO I NEED TO BE ON ANTIBIOTICS FOR FAT TRANSFER?
Dr. Lanzer usually puts patients on antibiotics for a few days for this liposuction treatment.
CAN FAT TRANSFER BE PERFORMED WITH A FACE LIFT?
Yes often Dr Lanzer will combines these methods as this way he corrects the loose skin with the lift, the volume loss with the fat transfer and the neck shape with the liposuction.
CAN FAT TRANSFER BE PERFORMED IN THE SYDNEY CLINIC?
Dr Lanzer will perform fat transfer in his Sydney clinic. Again a small micro liposuction is performed to obtain the fat for the transfer. Fat stored in our special fat transfer bank can be injected at any time in the Sydney clinic. The cells are transported under ice control and then transferred into the desired area.
WHEN DOES DR LANZER CHOOSE DERMAL FILLER AND WHEN DOES HE CHOOSE FAT TRANSFER?
Dermal fillers have the advantage of being an out procedure that has no real down time and does not require surgery. The Fat transfer first involves liposuction and then the fat transfer. The advantage is that fat transfer can be more long term as is the effects of the liposuction . It is ideal if a person is seeking a liposuction at the same time. Also much more volume can be used with fat transfer. Often Dr Lanzer will inject 20 ml of the liposuction derived fat. A dermal filler is usually 1-2 ml.
During a fat transfer, the fat within the body is no longer considered the enemy, since it can be used to make certain areas of the body appear younger. Of course, a fat transfer is a relatively new procedure, so many patients may not be familiar with its inner workings.
