Fat is taken from your body fat via VASER Liposuction or Micro Lipo and transfered to areas of the body where volume is needed. If you’re looking for a natural and subtle volume enhancement, The Private Clinic’s Fat Transfer procedures could be the solution for you.

Fat Transfer, also known as Fat Grafting or Fat Injections is a natural, minimally invasive treatment for those seeking to replace age-related lost volume to the hands and face as well as subtly smoothing out wrinkles. Fat is removed, using VASER Liposuction or MicroLipo, from various parts of the body where there is a substantial amount, such as the thighs, abdomen and/or buttocks. The fat is then centrifuged, or purified, to separate the healthy fat cells from the damaged ones, and injected into the face or hands.

Fat Transfer, as a volume enhancing treatment, has been around for several years, but it is the skills and expertise of the Doctor that allow for long-lasting, youthful results. At our consultations, you can discuss upgrading your procedure to include full VASER Liposuction or Micro Lipo for the ultimate solution in body contouring to suit your needs and your body. Our medical experts have lots of experience in delivering patients the kind of results that have always wanted.

Ageing has its effects on everyone’s skin, and unfortunately due to nature’s way of tell us that we are advancing in years, skin, all over your body, can lose its volume and become loose and relaxed. Medical and scientific advancements have paved the way for natural alternatives to synthetic fillers and implant procedures – our Doctor’s have named this alternative the ‘Organic Facelift’.

  • Not only does the Fat Graft result in increased subtle volume and ‘plumpness’, but also improved skin texture and quality due to the stem cells contained in the fat.
  • The results can bring back 5-10 years on the treated areas.
  • Natural-looking results
  • Minimal downtime – return home the same day and just a couple of days downtime for many of the procedures
  • Only local anaesthetic is necessary
  • Can be performed in combination with any of our full VASER Liposuction or Micro Lipo treatments

Before & After

Using your own fat to smooth out wrinkles and plump up the skin with our Fat Transfer procedures is a more natural and now increasingly popular alternative to dermal fillers. See the difference this procedure makes below.

What to Expect

As women and men seek out the latest in cosmetic treatments, more and more patients are choosing Fat Transfer procedures as their treatment of choice over temporary dermal fillers.

  • Consultation
  • Pre Op
  • The Procedure
  • Aftercare

The Consultation

The first stage of your fat transfer treatment journey will be a consultation with one of our expert surgeons.
At your consultation, your surgeon will go through the fat transfer procedure in detail and examine the areas that you are concerned about to assess your suitability for fat transfer surgery and advise what may or may not be possible based on your existing shape and skin and fat levels.

Your surgeon will then discuss:

  • Your medical history
  • Your expectations from surgery
  • Risks and Complications of surgery
  • Aftercare

Following your consultation, you will be introduced to your dedicated patient coordinator who will be your point of contact should you wish to proceed with fat transfer surgery.

Pre-Operative Advice

In the interests of patient safety all our patients are assessed against our patient selection criteria. Following your consultation and review of your past medical history, the physician or preoperative nurse will choose any pre-operative tests considered to be appropriate, most of which are routine blood tests.

Fat Transfer Surgery

Using your own fat to smooth out wrinkles and plump up the skin with our Fat Transfer procedures is a more natural and now increasingly popular alternative to dermal fillers. Fat Transfer procedures are not only able to smooth out wrinkles and lines but can also add volume to sunken cheeks, with an indirect boosting effect on the texture and tone of the skin. As women and men seek out the latest in cosmetic treatments, more and more patients are choosing Fat Transfer procedures as their treatment of choice over temporary dermal fillers. With one procedure, you remove the need for all those regular top-ups, leaving you to enjoy superior and natural-looking results for many years. Furthermore, the stem cell technology involved – stem cells are naturally present in fat – boosts the rejuvenating effect of the treatment, helping you to look glowing and more even in tone.

Fat transfer to the face is also used in combination with a facelift or blepharoplasty procedure to help restore volume to sunken areas. It is a great way to really enhance the results of your facelift procedure helping you to achieve a more youthful appearance. See our Facelift page for more information on facelift procedures and before and after photo gallery.

FAQs

  • Am I suitable for a Breast Augmentation?

    The size and shape of a woman’s bust can cause a great feeling of unhappiness and insecurity. In cases like these, a breast augmentation is a great way to provide both a safe and convenient solution to help restore confidence.

    There are many reasons why our patients decide to go ahead with breast augmentation but here at The Private Clinic we have a team of expert breast surgeons using the best techniques to help provide you with the results that you wish to achieve. All patients are handled with sensitivity and discretion.

    If you are over 18 years old, in good health and generally feeling fit and well then you will be suitable for a breast augmentation. However, in some cases, a breast augmentation may not be suitable for the results that you are expecting and in such cases an alternative or combined surgery method may be advised.

    The best way to ascertain your suitability for any type of surgery is to book a consultation to speak with your chosen surgeon. To book a consultation with our highly experienced surgeons click here.

  • What are the most natural looking breast implants?

    The right implant for you will be decided on by one of our expert breast surgeons. Your chosen breast implant will take into consideration your natural breast size and your body shape and frame.

    It is not possible to give an idea of one type of breast implant as different implant sizes, shapes and profiles will not all look the same on every patient. For each implant there are usually up to 4 different profiles which range from low to extra high and these decide on how much of the implant projects away from the chest wall.  A low profile will usually deliver more of a subtle or natural result but in certain cases the surgeon may advise that you go for a higher profile implant so that your breasts will be more in proportion to your body, therefore achieving a more natural result.

    Your surgeon will then discuss implant placement, usually for patients wanting a more natural implant result the implant will be placed below the muscle as this allows for more natural breast tissue to sit on top of the implant but in some cases it may be more appropriate to go an over the muscle option as that it what will suit your body the best.

    Taking care of your new breasts post-surgery will also have a big impact on the final result so it is very important to follow your surgeon’s aftercare advice to help you achieve the most natural result.

    We have an expert team of surgeons and nurses who will ensure that you receive the best advice both pre and post procedure to give you the best results.  To book a consultation click here or to find out more about the different types of breast implants take a look at our blog post here or view our breast augmentation video series here.

  • What is the difference between having your breast implants placed over the muscle or behind the muscle?

    Deciding where your breast implants are placed during breast augmentation surgery is decided by your surgeon and will be discussed in your consultation.

    Over the muscle may also be referred to as above the muscle or subglandular and it is when the breast implant is placed in front of the pectoralis minor and pectoralis major muscles that sit in your chest.  If you have a good amount of breast tissue then this option would be suitable for you as it will be able to help conceal the shape of the implant giving a more natural result.

    Under the muscle is also referred to as behind the muscle or Dual Plane. Although called under the muscle, usually the implant is never placed completely under the muscle as this is a relatively old fashioned breast augmentation technique. Instead the implant is placed under the pectoralis major muscle in the upper breast but above the serratus anterior muscle in the lower breast. Under the muscle is more commonly referred to as being dual plane and is normally the most favoured of techniques.  This option is best for patients who have little natural breast tissue as this method reduces the likelihood of your breast implants showing and gives a more natural looking result.

    Our expert breast surgeons are experienced in recommending the best breast augmentation technique to help suit you and your desired results.

    I work with Mr Riaz Agha, a Harley Street Plastic Consultant Surgeon at one of his private clinics. I am impressed with not only his standard and quality of work but also the care and kindness that he shows to all of his patients and team. I have worked with a huge variety of different consultants over the years but Mr Argha really stands out and I would highly recommend him to friends and family, and of course if ever I consider to have any procedures in the future.

    A really positive experience. Alex is a fantastic patient co-ordinator, so friendly and reassuring. After a few changes of plan due to Covid lockdown, I feel so grateful to have had the opportunity to have Dr Fattah performing my procedure. Extremely thorough and precise from the first consultation, I really trusted him. My main aim was to restore my figure after children/breastfeeding, with a really natural look that would work with my lifestyle, gym etc. Dr Fattah really “got” this and I trusted his judgement on size of implant and placement completely. I’m absolutely delighted with the result and the aftercare support has been great – surgery follow up and then annual check ups for reassurance. Thank you team, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend ?

    From the start to finish of my T-Lift procedure, I felt in good hands. The entire team at The Private Clinic were very caring and professional. Mr Falladah is an excellent surgeon, he explained everything clearly -before and during the procedure – and has a calm and reassuring manner. Because I was well-informed regarding what to expect after surgery, I was able to manage with minimal pain medication, but I’m glad I took a couple of days off work to recover. I’m really pleased with the results – a five star recommendation!

    I had preservation rhinoplasty with Dr Rochira in December 2019. I couldn’t be happier with my results. The results are very natural-looking and I feel so much more confident with my side profile. Dr Rochira is an amazing surgeon and I instantly felt comfortable. He knew exactly what I wanted and was very realistic with the results in my consultation. Thank you!

    Dr. Rochira performed a preservation rhinoplasty on me in December 2019. I trusted his suggestions for my nose and now, 9 months later, I couldn’t be happier with the results I’m seeing. I did not experience any bruising at all, only swelling around my eyes for the first couple of weeks — my nose itself took a few months to settle and I feel like it has really grown into the rest of my features. I entirely recommend this surgeon if you are looking for a natural result and an extremely pleasant experience.
