The VASER technique for liposuction is used to help harvest the fat cells. VASER liposuction differs greatly from surgical liposuction because it targets fat cells specifically, without damaging nerves and connective tissue in the donor area – minimising pain, bruising and swelling after the procedure as well as helping to speed up the recovery process. Once the fat cells have been harvested, they are filtered and injected into the required sites, with an immediate effect.
Face Fat Transfer
As it is a relatively small amount of fat being transferred, compared to fat transfer to the breasts, the procedure is very unlikely to cause much discomfort. Some bruising may occur but developments in the technique have significantly reduced the amount of bruising involved.
It is a walk in walk out procedure. The full result can be achieved within a couple of hours, with the procedure itself taking around 90 minutes.
The results are instant but the full effect will be evident after the minimal swelling and bruising has gone. Expect the swelling and bruising to last 1-2 weeks.
Each patient reacts differently but our extensive experience as well as medical and industry experience has shown that results can last for many years. More information is available at a consultation.
You will need to take extra care with your face to allow it to fully respond to the fat transfer. Avoiding intense exercise and anything too strenuous for your body is advised.
