Overview of Asian Fat Grafting / Transfer

Fat grafting, also known as fat transfer, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves removing a patient’s body fat from strategic areas and transferring it to new areas. This technique is growing increasingly popular in various facets of plastic surgery, including facial rejuvenation and breast augmentation. Fat grafting is a desirable alternative to more invasive techniques for some patients because it requires minimal incisions and reduced recovery time.

Fat grafting offers several advantages for Asian patients. Many patients who want to enhance their look may feel hesitant about undergoing an invasive surgical procedure for fear that it will look obvious and unnatural or leave conspicuous scars. Many others worry about the potential implications of introducing non-organic material, such as breast implants or dermal fillers, into the body. Fat grafting is a safe and rewarding alternative for patients who want to improve their appearance while still looking and feeling utterly natural.

Facial fat grafting and breast fat grafting are powerful as standalone procedures or as additions to other rejuvenation or enhancement procedures. If you are considering Asian fat grafting in Sydney or the surrounding areas, schedule a private consultation at Asian Plastic Surgery. Our fully qualified specialist plastic surgeons are Australian-trained and practise with a special focus in Asian aesthetics.

Benefits of FAT GRAFTING / TRANSFER FOR FACE & BREAST

There are many reasons why you may wish to choose fat grafting over a procedure that achieves similar goals:

  • Fat grafting is less invasive than a facelift, facial bone contouring or breast implants
  • Fat grafting is 100% organic; no foreign material enters the body
  • Fat grafting has dual benefits — adding volume to one area while simultaneously providing some liposculpture in another area
  • Fat grafting usually has a quicker and more comfortable recovery than invasive surgery
  • Fat grafting significantly reduces scarring
  • Fat grafting can accomplish some goals that other options cannot
  • Fat grafting results feel soft and natural
  • Fat grafting is less invasive than a facelift, facial bone contouring or breast implants
  • Fat grafting is a permanent solution, unlike dermal fillers or breast implants

The specialist plastic surgeons at Asian Plastic Surgery are committed to using the latest advances in fat grafting technology to secure the highest rate of healthy fat survival. Request an in-person consultation to learn more about this process and find out if you are a suitable candidate.

What to Expect

Your initial consultation will establish your fat grafting goals and expectations. Your surgeon will discuss all surgical and nonsurgical options so that you can make the best possible choices for yourself. Most women are suited to undergo fat grafting procedures, although there are some situations in which it isn’t appropriate. Your surgeon will create a personalised treatment plan that takes your unique circumstances and anatomy into account.

The fat grafting operation involves three steps. First, fat is harvested by liposuction from an area where there is excess — often the buttocks, thighs or abdomen. Low suction is used to prevent damage to the fat cells. When the collection process is complete, fat cells are separated from surrounding liquid. This purification process ensures there is an ample supply of clean and healthy fat cells to be used in the transfer. In the final step of the procedure, the fat is injected into the areas where more volume is desired.

Our surgeons aim to achieve a final look that reflects their patients’ personality and never looks overdone. Fat grafting results feel soft and natural. Because the fat is transferred using a thin cannula, there is also virtually no scarring. The finished product is all you, without any artificial enhancements.

Common Areas

Two types of fat grafting are popular with our Asian patients:

Fat Grafting Breast Augmentation

Breast fat grafting is an implant-free approach to breast augmentation that excels in achieving an ultra-natural look and feel that others may never know has been enhanced. It is often less stressful on the body than implant augmentation, which means recovery is relatively fast and discomfort is dramatically reduced, especially compared to that experienced with submuscular implants. Breast fat grafting also eliminates the potential for implant complications and the need for replacement implants. The results are essentially permanent once the transferred fat cells develop a steady blood supply within the breasts.

Facial Fat Grafting

Fat grafting is ideal for volumising and shaping the face around the eyes, jawline and cheeks. Facial fat grafting can correct volume loss and wrinkles in older patients and can be used to improve proportions and harmony in younger patients. The volume enhancement can last far longer than dermal fillers and, because there is no foreign material, it can be an excellent solution for people who are sensitive or allergic to filler products. Facial fat grafting can be used in tandem with other facial rejuvenation strategies such as a facelift or blepharoplasty for enhanced results.
