Fat Transfer or a Fat Graph takes your unwanted body fat via VASER Lipo or MicroLipo and transfers it to areas of the body where volume is needed. If you’re looking for a natural alternative to implants and fillers.
Billed as a natural and long-lasting alternative to implants and fillers, these fat transfers – also used to plump up sagging boobs, or a bottom that has lost its perkiness. Fat Transfers have become big business since being pioneered in the U.S. In the past year; it has been reported of a 15 per cent increase in the number of Fat Transfer treatments.
The two-in-one procedure involves removing anything from 20ml to 200ml of fat from most commonly the inner thigh or stomach, slimming the area slightly in the process. It’s then injected into somewhere lacking in volume, such as the breasts, buttocks, eye area or hands.
While a certain amount of the newly-added fat gets reabsorbed by the body, most stays in place, ageing and depleting naturally alongside other body cells. Scarring is kept to a minimum as the skin need only be pierced with a small syringe.
It is estimated that 30 percent of fat injected won’t survive past the first month. The fat cells can die if they aren’t near enough to a blood supply to sustain them, so surgeons always overfill to compensate. This can cause initial swelling which usually settles down within days or weeks depending on how much fat has been transferred.
As the fat is softer and more fluid than synthetic fillers, the results from fat grafting look and feel natural, and there’s no risk of rejection. It stays in its new ‘home’ unless you lose weight quickly, in which case it behaves exactly like normal fat and gets broken down and reabsorbed. As a result, effects can last ten years or more compared to fillers which typically need replacing after 12 months.
