The surgery will take 2 hours. Typically you will be sent home after the surgery unless many areas are treated.
The recovery period will differ from one patient to another, and it depends on the extent of the procedure. Before you're discharged, your doctor will provide you with the instruction you need to speed up your recovery.
In the first two days after the surgery, you will feel discomfort, and follow a medication plan to reduce the pain. The bruising will fade away after a month of the surgery.
The treated areas will be swollen and bruised after the surgery for a few weeks. You should take a week or two off work and avoid demanding activities during the recovery.
After six months, expect to see results as some of the transferred fat will be reabsorbed into the body.
Fat transfer surgery has a success rate of 75% - 80%.
Fat grafting, also known as fat transfer, is a cosmetic surgery that aims to remove fat from unwanted areas (face, thighs, stomach, hips) and transfer it into specific body parts to improve its aesthetic look. Fat transfer is a standard procedure in Brazilian but lifts and breast fat transfer treatments.
We will ask you to send your photos as shown in the Photography Guide below to evaluate your case for your online consultation.
We will plan and arrange the procedure to suit your personal preferences and needs. There are a few primary steps involved in this procedure. Here is what you can expect:
The surgeon will discuss the proposed surgery plan with you and address any concerns or expectations you have about the surgery.
They will examine your body and draw marks suggesting the incision areas.
Your surgeon will give you general anesthesia or local, depending on the extent of your procedure.
Your surgeon will choose the appropriate incision based on your case; then, your surgeon will make small incisions and extract the fat cells using a medical tube known as the cannula.
Once the fat has been extracted, the surgeon will carefully purify it using a particular machine. The machine will separate the fat from other liquids like blood.
After the purification, the fat cell will be transferred into the targeted areas at various depths.
