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’.
Advantages of Fat Grafting and Fat Transfers
- More economical than synthetic fillers in the long-term.
- 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

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.
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.
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.

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. To book a consultation click here.
