What is Fat Grafting?

Fat grafting, fat transfer, or lipomodelling is a procedure to extract and then move fat from one area to the other. For example, fat from the thighs might be used for breast augmentation. In this way remodeling of targeted areas on the body takes place and two types of results are achieved through one procedure.

What to expect during the procedure?

This is a minimally invasive procedure. It involves sucking fat out of one part of the body (much like liposuction), processing the fat quickly and then inserting it back to the second area. Incisions are only made when fat is sucked out. There are no incisions required to inject it back. During the fat processing, the goal is to separate it from blood and fluids as well as any other unwanted elements.

Yes, usually one treatment is enough to get the results needed. If you are not satisfied with the final look, a second procedure can be performed. However, if you discuss expectations with the doctor thoroughly beforehand, it shouldn’t come to a second procedure. Sometimes, when an extensive amount of work needs to be done, the treatment might be split into two sessions.

For this procedure local anesthesia is used which renders the treated area numb and so you will not feel any pain. Sometimes if the procedure is an especially intense one, general anesthesia might be used in place of local anesthesia.

Minimum bandaging and bruising should be expected from this treatment. Small bandages are only required where a small incision is made when fat is sucked out.

The fat used is taken from the individual’s own body and it is also cleaned. This means that there is no chance of rejection. The only side effect you might experience is bruising and swelling from the procedure which should subside in two weeks.

What can be expected during recovery?

You can expect bruising and swelling during recovery. You will be informed about the appropriate aftercare. It is possible that some of the fat injected might get absorbed and so the final result may appear less plumper than it did right after surgery. If you are not happy with the results you can discuss the possibility of a second procedure.
