What is Fat Transfer?

Fat transfer is a surgical procedure that transplants fat taken from the patient’s body to areas of the face and body in order to restore the volume lost because of the process of aging. The procedure is also called fat grafting or fat injection. Typically fat is transferred to the breasts, the buttocks, hands and facial features including the lips, chin and cheeks. Fat transfers are also performed to treat acne scarring.

How is Fat Transfer done?

Fat is removed from one area of the body by the surgeon using liposuction. The fat is purified and turned into liquid form. It is then injected into another part of the body to give more volume. The time taken for the procedure depends on the part of the body from which the fat is harvested, the processing of the fat and the part of the body or face where the fat is transferred to. A fat transfer procedure to the buttocks, for example, may take five to eight hours.

Is Fat Transfer painful?

Fat transfer procedures are performed under general anaesthesia, local anaesthesia or intravenous sedation, depending on the needs of each individual patient. Patients will not feel pain during the procedure.

How long does it take to recover from Fat Transfer?

Recovery from fat transfer depends on the part of the body to which fat is transferred. The recovery time for patients choosing a fat transfer procedure to their buttocks may be about four to six weeks.

When can I travel by air after Fat Transfer?

Patients can travel by air 10 days after their fat transfer procedure.

What post-operative care should I take after Fat Transfer?

Patients should rest for a few days after a fat transfer procedure. They should take all prescribed medications correctly and avoid smoking or drinking alcohol. Patients should avoid strenuous activities and lifting heavy objects for at least a month after the procedure. They should, however start walking as soon as possible to decrease swelling. They should also wear the prescribed compression garments correctly.

The experience was top notch and I felt like I was in excellent care with a skilled surgeonGS, South Africa, 09 12 20

Had lipo section and ab etching 24 hours ago. So far so good, limited discomfort. Dr Padilha, his anesthesiologist Dr Mooruth (who really is excellent), Diana the RN and the entire staff were fantastic. Obviously, it is too early to comment on the final result, but the experience was top notch and I felt like I was in excellent care with a skilled surgeon and top-notch anesthesiologist. Based upon my experience thus far Dr Padilha clearly is five stars.

Healing well after two weeksBev, Cape Town, 18 09 15

Blepharoplasty two weeks ago. Booked in on Monday morning at 8.30 and was in theatre by 9. The whole experience was seamless and professional and not at all painful. Dr Meintjes is wonderful. He keeps his patient informed throughout and at no time did I ever feel apprehensive or insecure. Two weeks later, I have healed well, and I have a follow up visit after a month. So far, so good. What an awesome clinic with fun friendly professional staff and a fantastic environment. The clinic is easily accessible. You don't have to fight traffic or hunt for parking. It's a converted large Victorian house with all the olde worlde charm but modern medical facilities. The staff make you feel at home and at ease immediately and the surgeon, Dr Meintjes is approachable, friendly and extremely thorough.

Liposuction  
The technique involves injection of fluid, including local anaesthetic, into the area to be refined prior to the actual procedure, the so-called tumescent technique. This is an outstanding procedure with low morbidity and predictable results if patient selection criteria are strict and technique is sound. Surface bruising will usually resolve in 10 to 14 days. Pleasing improvement is noticeable within 7 to 14 days. The final result will usually be evident after 8 to 10 weeks. Careful evaluation of the skin tone is required. The patient's age and the amount of fat to be removed from a particular area can and will influence the "tone" of the skin after the procedure and this is discussed prior to the procedure.
