When it comes to fat, our transfer window is always open

It’s January, and the urge to lose fat is strong, but it’s worth remembering that in certain circumstances, fat is good – and you’d be surprised how much you’d miss it in particular places.

Take the face, for starters: As we get older, the fat content in our face – especially in the mid-face and chin – decreases in volume, and draws the skin downwards, resulting in sunken cheeks.

There’s a fix for that, however: a transfer of fat from the thighs or abdomen to the area of the face that needs extra volume. Because it’s been created in your own body, it’s the safest material possible – and the results are a healthier look and instant rejuvenation.

What happens during a fat transfer procedure?

Fat is removed from one part of the body with a specialised syringe, and then put through centrifugal force to isolate the fat cells. These are then injected into the treated area in a layered pattern of small ‘pearls’, to ensure the graft will take. Local anaesthesia is used, making it a painless procedure.

What happens afterwards?

As fat transfer is a minimally invasive procedure, it’s a walk-in-walk-out treatment with zero downtime. There is a possibility of bruising, although this can be easily covered up and they will naturally disappear after a week or so.

If you desire a quick and far less painless solution to facial ageing, with a more natural and less detectable result than other procedures, fat transfer is the way to go. What’s more, there’s no risk of scarring – and because the ‘filler’ is completely natural, there’s zero chance of allergic reactions to the filler. The first step towards your new and natural look begins with a consultation: please visit our Fat Transfer page.
