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.

86 New Church Street, Tamboerskloof, Cape Town, 8001
Rating from 4 Reviews My results were beyond my expectationJacquie, Kemp Town, 22 Apr 15

Knee lipo, breast lift and augmentation This plastic surgeon is excellent, his team friendly, supportive and exceptional. Absolutely no hesitation in recommending him. Utterly trustworthy , knowledgeable, experienced and professional with quality aftercare and always accessible after surgery. My results were beyond my expectation and I am only in the first month of recovery. I entrusted Dr D with my one daughter and another will be undergoing a procedure with him. They are a caring family; unpretentious...sincere from beginning to end.

Fat Transfer R 25000 - R 40000
Fat transfer is frequently done in the face to improve volume, provide some lift, enhance skin and provide an overall improvement in the face.Large volume fat transfer may be done to the breast or the butt to increase size and improve shape.Autologous fat breast augmentation is a procedure suitable for some patients: minimal increase in breast size desired, enough body fat to harvest, no past or family history of breast cancer or breast cancer risk factors, a willingness to have the procedure a second or third time to allow for a greater volume of fat to be placed.Butt augmentation requires a full liposuction to harvest fat which is then recycled into the butt.
Plastic Surgeon Consultation R 1000 - R 1201
New cosmetic patients will receive as much time as is required so that you are fully informed prior to surgery, all your questions answered and you feel at ease about your surgery and the follow up. Aside from time with Dr. Lazarus you will also have an opportunity to talk to Danni, our practice sister who is very familiar with all the procedures we do, what the surgery entails, the recovery, the possible complications and the outcome.
Breast Implants R 57000 - R 57001
Breast augmentation with implants is done to increase the size of your breasts. My default method involves an incision in the crease underneath the breasts and placement of implants in a sub-glandular position above the muscle. I may vary from this if your anatomy determines that another approach would be better.  I use silicone gel filled implants (textured surface, cohesive silicone gel), usually round and sized with you so that you can determine what you want. Surgery is performed in my own facility under sedation and local anaesthesia. Recovery is quick and you will be discharged on the same day as surgery. Normal activities can be resumed within a week or two of surgery. Patients not from Cape Town should stay in Cape Town about 12 days or more to allow for a pre-operative consultation, surgery, recovery and check ups.

Rating from 5 Reviews All services and duties were performed to extra-ordinary levelsUrsula, South Africa, 09 May 17

I certainly got more than my money’s worth while visiting the clinic. All services and duties were performed to extra-ordinary levels. Everything went together rather well, from the appearance, to staff treatment and of course the price. The clinic is great value for money because it provides good service and treatment at a price that is far better than the competitions. Overall a really good experience.

Rating from 7 Reviews I was very confident he’d be able to help me and I felt I was in safe, capable handsJacqui, South Africa, 13 Feb 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.

Fat Transfer  
Plastic Surgeon Consultation  
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.
