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.

Fat Transfer
Fat Grafting R 15000 - R 70000
Fat transfer also known as Fat Grafting is a procedure whereby fat is relocated from one part of the body to another or to the face. After the fat is removed it is prepared and then placed in the new location. Fat Transfer is a minimally invasive procedure that is performed under local anaesthetic as opposed to general anestheticIt is a walk-in walk-out procedure, so no hospital stay is involvedResults are more natural-lookingConsiderably less pain and no scarringNo lengthy time off work or away from daily activitiesAs we age, one of the things that we may notice is the loss of volume in the face, as well as hands, and other areas. Loss of volume is often accompanied by loss of skin elasticity which can further concerns patients. The progressive effects of time on your skin, as well as changes in soft tissue, and other deeper structural components of the face and body bring about appearance changes that include changes in skin texture, loss of plumpness and volume especially in the face, and hands as well as in the female breast. The affected areas appear more angular or bony, adding to the perception of ageing. Gravity, bone thinning, decreased tissue elasticity and subcutaneous fat loss all exacerbate this. In respect of the face, for many who wanted to rejuvenate a more youthful appearance, a facelift was usually considered the go-to option, but that comes with high costs and lengthy recovery time, as well as pain and inconvenience to life in general. Recent years have seen a significant increase in the number of non-surgical procedures performed for facial rejuvenation. Men and women seeking alternatives to surgical procedures include those who require restoration of lost facial volume, those who wish to enhance normal facial features, and those who want to correct facial asymmetry.

Liposuction R 19950 - R 60000

In men, Liposuction has been found effective in treating unwanted fat deposits in the male chest area. * The costs of the treatment is determined by the areas you want to have treated. The first area costs R19,950 and there is an additional charge of R5,000.00 for each subsequent area. Please feel free to read additional information on our website.

Rating from 8 Reviews I was very confident he’d be able to help me and I felt I was in safe, capable handsJacqui, South Africa, 13 02 18

I’ve just returned from my third and final follow-up with Dr. Lovric and I couldn’t be happier. He had very good reviews online and was one of the only plastic surgeons to respond to my request for information on breast augmentation. After careful consideration, I chose him for my fat transfer procedure. I’m very happy with my decision - I think he truly understood what I wanted and he was able to help me achieve this. The staff at the clinic were professional and welcoming, while the peaceful atmosphere of the place set me at ease. I appreciated Dr. Lovric’s hands-on approach. He used years of expertise and knowledge to correct my problem. I was very confident he’d be able to help me and I felt I was in safe, capable hands the entire time. The doctor has done a fantastic job. I’ve got no complaints whatsoever.

Rating from 2 Reviews 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.
