Face and Body Fat Injections

This Precise Technique, Also Known As Fat Transfer or Fat Grafting, Restores Lost Volume and Improves the Shape and Contours of Your Face.

About Fat Injections

Fat injections are designed to replace volume that has been lost with ageing and to create a more balanced and youthful look to the face.

Also known as “autologous fat transplantation”, fat injections is a procedure by which fat is harvested from one part of a patient’s body and injected back into other areas. This helps:

  • Restore lost volume
  • Reshape areas of the face or body
  • Add definition and contour
  • Fill our lines and wrinkles

Fat Injections in the Face

Fat may be taken from the thighs or buttocks and used to fill in deep wrinkles and creases or to plump thin lips and cheeks.

Fat injections can also enhance a particular feature, such as an underdeveloped jawline. Fat injection can be performed as part of a facelift, and the results can be seen immediately.

Breast Fat Injection

Fat injections can be used in breast surgery to replace volume and achieve better balanced breasts.

Fat injections are also used in breast reconstruction following breast cancer treatment or prevention, and congenital breast deformity.

Why Do People Choose Fat Injections?

Body fat is a favourable choice for many people as it is soft, natural, and effective.

Because the fat has come from one’s own body, it will not be rejected. It is also a great alternative procedure for patients who have allergies to substances found in man-made implants.

Are Fat Injections Permanent?

The results of fat injections usually vary from patient to patient. Patients often find that half the initial fullness disappears within three to six months after treatment. So, further treatments may be necessary to maintain excellent results.

Your Consultation

Initial consultation:

Your initial consultation with Mr Mutimer or A/Prof Shayan will last approx. 30 min. Your surgeon will discuss your procedure in detail, the technique to be used and expected recovery time. Photos will be taken.

Following this you will meet with our Patient Advisor who will take you through costs and discuss a potential date for your procedure.

Pre-operative appointment:

2 weeks prior to your procedure you will meet Mr Mutimer or A/Prof Shayan again for a final consultation.

You will also meet with the Patient Advisor and Practice Nurse to finalise all administration, and discuss pre and post-operative care instructions. Payment for your procedure is also finalised at this time.
