Why Choose Fat Transfer in Aberdeen?

Fat transfer, also known as fat grafting, is an ideal choice for individuals who desire to enhance specific areas of the body, such as the face, breasts, hands or buttocks, using their own natural fat. This procedure allows for the transfer of excess fat from one area of the body to another, providing volume enhancement, improved contour, and a more balanced aesthetic. Fat transfer offers a natural, long-lasting alternative to implants or fillers by introducing an enriched concentration of fat and regenerative stem cells.

Fat Transfer

What the Procedure Involves

Fat transfer involves two main steps: harvesting fat from a donor area and then injecting the purified fat into the desired area. Fat contains a number of regenerative stem cells that are enriched in the processing stage to enhance longevity and rejuvenation. The Beautifill laser liposuction system by Alma Lasers is utilised for the harvesting step. The laser energy gently and precisely breaks up and removes the fat cells, allowing for a more efficient and minimally invasive extraction process, while preserving the valuable adipose-derived stem cells. The harvested fat is then carefully processed and injected into the target area for natural volume enhancement and rejuvenation.

Harvested fat can be processed in different ways to produce macro, micro or nanofat depending on the goals of the procedure. Sometimes a combination of the different sizes of fat particles will be used, especially in facial rejuvenation.

The Benefits

Fat transfer offers several benefits, including enhanced volume and contour in the target area, improved symmetry, and a more natural-looking outcome. Since the transferred fat comes from your own body, the risk of adverse reactions or complications is minimised. Fat transfer can provide long-lasting results, and as the transplanted fat integrates with the surrounding tissues, it can create a harmonious and balanced appearance. In addition to the volumising effect, stem cells promote repair and rejuvenation.

On the day

On the day of the procedure, you will arrive at our clinic, and our caring staff will guide you through the process. You surgeon will confirm the details of the procedure and the areas to be treated and together you will complete a consent form. The surgeon will mark the areas to be treated and take preoperative photographs for your records. The surgical team will perform the fat transfer surgery according to the personalised treatment plan. The Beautifill laser liposuction system will be utilised to harvest the fat from the donor area. The harvested fat is then purified and carefully injected into the target area for volume enhancement.

After fat transfer, you may experience some swelling, bruising, and temporary discomfort in both the donor and recipient areas. Our team will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions, including the use of compression garments, pain management, and guidelines for optimal healing. It's important to follow these instructions for a smooth recovery. Strenuous activities should be avoided during the initial healing period.

Expected Results

Following the recovery period, you can expect enhanced volume and contour in the treated area, improved symmetry, and a more natural-looking outcome. Fat transfer using the Beautifill laser liposuction system ensures better retention and long-lasting results. The transplanted fat integrates with the surrounding tissues, providing a harmonious and balanced appearance. Although fat retention with Beautifill is very good, inevitably some fat will not survive the transfer process and initial results can diminish over the first 3 months. This is normal and expected. Further fat transfer can be performed to top-up the volume if required. With proper care and maintenance, you can enjoy the benefits of your enhanced contours and volume for many years.
