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.

At the age of 60, I feel much better about myselfAngel, Rustenburg, 11 03 20

In Nov 2019 Dr Gordon Cohen did a fat transplant to my face with a Permanent Thread as well. I am more than amazed and extremely happy. At the age of 60, I feel much better about myself. Dr Cohen is straight to the bone which I appreciate so much. Although a had a very low body fat, he still did an amazing job. Dr Cohen seems to excel in everything he does at the clinic. I had a facial called skin-tight today, and although it's a 2-hour drive for me, I will do all my treatments and maintenance at Face and Body. Thank you, Dr for changing my life for the better.

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.

An awesome and refreshing experience I have had in a long timeYondie, South Africa, 13 08 19

I had a very good experience with Dr Claire and the staff was very welcoming as well as very good with keeping in contact. Dr Claire was very patient in wanting to understand the background of what led to the hard lump, very knowledgeable with what the possibilities of what my issue is and how it will be treated going forward. She was quiet friendly and made me feel at easy. I have a follow-up appointment with her in 2 weeks and I am certain that I will be going for more treatments. An awesome and refreshing experience I have had in a long time.

I thought the hospital was really good, and my doctor was first-classAnonymous, South Africa, 22 04 18

I had my breast implants done at this clinic. I chose Sunninghill because I wanted Dr Padilha to perform the surgery. I’m very happy with my new breasts, and I wouldn’t mind using this hospital for future treatments. There was one issue regarding the price, though. Dr Padilha assured me I’d only need to pay his fee, but then the hospital sent us an extra bill. The situation is being looked into. This was the only glitch during my entire experience. I thought the hospital was really good, and my doctor was first-class. I had one follow-up afterwards, and the Dr Padilha told me I could give him a call if I had any issues or questions. I’ve been to quite a few other hospitals, so I know Sunninghill is brilliant. If the doctor prescribes any medication, there’s even a pharmacy in the hospital and you can just pop down to go and buy it. It’s such a good place to receive treatment; I always feel so comfortable here.

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.
