Autologous Fat Transplantation

Also known as fat grafting, fat injection or lipofilling, the fat transfer procedure utilises an individual’s own body fat to increase volume on specific areas of the face and body. Besides restoring ample fullness and creating a rejuvenation effect, this technique can provide various anti-aging benefits due to the fat cells’ ability to stimulate collagen growth.

A minimally invasive procedure, our surgeon will first extract fat from common body areas such as the hips, thighs or stomach. The cells will then be put through a centrifuge where it will be processed into microdroplets, and subsequently injected into the specific treatment area to create an instant appearance of youthful plumpness.

Solution

At H-II Clinic, we offer two types of fat transplantation procedure:

Facial Fat Transfer

Usually performed to restore sunken cheeks and hollow-looking eyes, a facial fat transfer procedure can also plump up thin lips and smoothen deep nasolabial folds. It may also be used to improve the appearance of pitted scars. The stem cells naturally present in fat tissue offers constant facial rejuvenation from the inside out, and is the longest-lasting option to restore volume to the face compared to other procedures.

Breast Fat Transfer

With the ability to increase natural breast volume up to two cup sizes, it’s no wonder why the breast fat transfer procedure is one of the more popular options or breast augmentation. It creates a modest increase in size using fat that’s harvested from one’s own body, with the additional benefit of having extremely minimal risk of allergic reaction. Once the recovery period is over, the breasts will look and feel completely natural with permanent results.

Recovery

Patient will experience swelling and discomfort around the surgical areas. This is common following a surgical procedure. The wounds should always be kept clean and dry to allow for optimal healing. By the third week you will begin to look more like yourself. Once the swelling recedes, you will be able to appreciate the changes, but subtle swelling may persist for weeks.
