Fat Injection and Fat Transfer
Fat injections are principally used to restore volume in the face (as a substitute for HA fillers), or in the breast to mask breast imperfections that occur naturally or following breast cancer treatment, for example. The technique can also be employed in cases of over-resection of fat following liposuction or during external compression or trauma to the body resulting in contour irregularities.
Large volume fat transfer is very powerful to correct congenital differences in breast size or shape in those young women who wish to avoid breast implants. Suitable donor sites for fat transfer are required.
Fat is delicate and in large volume transfers, more than one operation may be required. Examples of what can be achieved are available during the consultation.
