What Is Fat Transfer Surgery?
The fat transfer procedure involves transferring fat from one part of the body to another. This treatment is also referred to as fat grafting and has applications in numerous cosmetic surgery procedures. For example, injecting fat into the breasts can provide an alternative to breast implants. Body fat can also be used for rejuvenation, this can be done on areas such as the face and hands.
How Does The Fat Transfer Procedure Work?
During the fat transfer in Melbourne, certain amounts of fat are removed from a donor site on the patient’s body. This treatment can vary from patient to patient, as the donor site can be different. For example, some patients have more of an accumulation of fat cells in the abdomen, while others have more excess fat in the thighs. So, the cosmetic surgery needs to evaluate the body to find an appropriate donor site first. Once the area is located, the cosmetic surgery can harvest body fat from that area.
When the fat is harvested through liposuction, the cosmetic surgery needs to filter the fat before it is injected back into the body. Patients can also choose to store the fat in our fat bank, which keeps the fat safe until the patient is ready for their procedure.
What Are The Benefits Of Fat Transfer?
The fat transfer is one of the procedures that includes many benefits, as it can be implemented for a variety of purposes. One of the main benefits of the fat transfer is facial rejuvenation, as fat can be used to restore lost volume in areas such as the cheeks, lips, jawline and more.
Of course, the fat transfer can also provide an alternative for traditional breast implants. If the patient is looking to increase one or two cup sizes, then a fat transfer could be implemented instead of breast implants.
Finally, the fat transfer is also suitable for a Brazilian butt lift. Patients who have a good physique but fail to achieve the shape they want despite exercising regularly, could consider the butt lift with fat transfer to obtain the result they want.

Who Can Get A Fat Transfer?
The fat transfer procedure is suitable for a variety of patients; this include patients who want to increase the size of the breasts as well as patients who wish to rejuvenate their face. Of course, patients must meet certain medical criteria before they are deemed eligible for the procedure. So, before the procedure can take place, the patients must be evaluated by an experienced cosmetic surgery.
Is Fat Transfer Surgery Safe?
Even though the fat transfer is a relatively safe procedure and the fact that Dr Lanzer never encountered serious complications from this treatment, we always ask patients to inform themselves about the procedure and possible complications that accompany it.
During your initial consultation, your cosmetic surgery will discuss some of the side-effects you can experience post-operatively, but also possible complications that could occur during the fat transfer. This way, patients can make the most informed decision possible.
Side-effects patients experience after a fat transfer may include bruising and swelling. These side-effects can vary in severity from patient to patient, as some patients experience bruising and swelling a lot easier than others. There can also be some temporary numbness of the treated area, which dissipates as the body heals.
Patients must also consider that a small amount of the injected fat can be lost during the first couple of months after their treatment. The amount of fat loss can be variable from patient to patient too, so it is recommended to choose a surgeon that has experience with fat transfers to ensure the proper result.
Even though rare, patients must consider that complications can occur with a fat transfer. One complication that patients should always look out for is infection. Even though cosmetic surgerys take every precaution to avoid infection after a procedure, there are always external elements that cannot be controlled. If you believe you may suffer from an infection after a treatment, please contact The Dr Lanzer Clinic as soon as possible for an appointment. You can also head over to your nearest emergency department for immediate treatment, as infection must be treated as soon as possible.
If you have questions or concerns about any aspect of a cosmetic treatment or the recovery process, never hesitate to speak to your cosmetic surgery or another licensed health practitioner. Patients should always have their treatment after they have been informed fully. So, if you have questions or concerns, be sure to always discuss them.
