Fat Transfer

Complete confidence

As we age certain areas of our body lose volume or flatten – Fat Transfer is a viable method of enhancing these areas without the need for implants.

What is a fat transfer?

Surgical fat transfer moves fat from one part of the body’s fat to another, also known as a ‘fat graft’ or ‘lipomodelling’. The aim is to remove unwanted fat from one area (such as the tummy or thighs) and use it to enhance and rejuvenate another area (such as the breasts or face). A fat transfer can also be carried out under local anaesthetic, meaning no overnight stay in the hospital.

  • Reduce the appearance of facial scars perhaps caused by acne
  • Enhance sunken cheeks and wrinkles, perhaps after weight loss or over exercise (gym face)
  • Enhance body contours
  • Provide volume to areas such as breasts
  • Help with facial abnormalities such as hemifacial atrophy (where one side of the face droops or sinks)

While it can be a very exciting time prior to surgery it can also make for an anxious time too, and this is perfectly normal. At La Belle Forme, our surgeons take great care to carefully answer each and every question patients may have. Your surgeon will also explain what the breast enlargement procedure will involve, recovery times and how we will achieve your desired look and breast size you desire.

We offer patients consultations from our Glasgow clinic.

Removing the fat:
Small incisions are made in the skin and a thin tube is used to suck out small amounts of fat (similar to liposuction). The incisions are then closed with stitches and a small dressing placed over them.

Preparing the fat:
Equipment is used to quickly spin the fat, to separate it from any blood and other fluids.

Injecting the fat:
A needle and syringe are used to inject small amounts of fat into the treatment area. The injections are given through tiny holes in the skin, so stitches aren’t usually needed.
