Modern fat grafting has changed body contouring completely. In some cases it can replace the need for silicone implants in contouring techniques like breast augmentation, gluteal augmentation, calf augmentation or hip augmentation. In other cases this new approach contributes towards more natural and complete results by combining implant-based approaches with fat grafting (composite breast augmentation or composite gluteal augmentation).
Lipotransfer procedures generally have a very low complication rate and very high satisfaction rate with our patients. They can be performed either as an isolated procedure or in combination with other procedures like breast augmentation with implants or gluteal augmentation with implants (composite Brazilian Butt Lift/BBL).
Pre-operative considerations include a thorough evaluation of your anatomy, your body fat / BMI and skin quality including the recommendation of possible complementary or alternative procedures, such as body contouring with implants. Our advice regarding the combination of techniques, your understanding of the 3 dimensional body contouring approach and our enthusiasm for the best possible results are paramount in obtaining long-lasting and natural results.

It was like magic to see my love handles and stomach fat gone and, at the same time, have my breasts a cup bigger. You were right not to throw the fat away. I regret I didn’t put it to my cheeks as you advised me.

Your age, skin quality and anatomic proportions are key in choosing the fat grafting technique best suited to you. Based on this evaluation we will explain if any additional technique would be advisable for the best aesthetic outcome.
If your skin shows signs of cellulite, generalized loss of collagen, striae etc., additional treatments maybe recommended by us and performed at the same time as your fat grafting surgery, to minimize downtime.
The fat transfer is performed using very thin cannulas (needles) to harvest the fat and re-inject it after cleaning and filtration. As there are no incisions, there are no visible scars.
Lipotransfer is mostly performed under deep IV sedation (twilight sleep), combined with local anesthesia. You will sleep throughout the procedure, but you will be able to move your arms and legs as with normal sleep, which lowers the risk for thrombosis. The procedure is generally pain free and takes between 1-2 hours.
