Can I Get Liposuction and Fat Transfer Together?

January 19, 2021

The fat transfer procedure is essentially a two-in-one thanks to the use of liposuction. Melbourne patients can add volume to enhance specific regions of the body that have been affected due to ageing or extreme weight loss while toning another section at the same time.

With Me Clinic's fat transfer, Melbourne patients can have fat from one area of the body grafted and used to enhance another. This procedure is often considered to be a ‘two-in-one,’ reducing and sculpting areas like the love handles or stomach, and for example, achieving a more youthful look to the face. As experts in liposuction, Melbourne's Me Clinic can make significant changes to your appearance with this technique.

The ability to re-volumise with a fat transfer

With the liposuction technique, instruments such as microcannulas can target a problem area somewhere on your body and remove an amount of fat that is then reinjected to create an improvement to your aesthetic in a different region.

The procedure commonly removes fat from the hips, outer thighs or stomach. The fat that is removed is then prepared and injected into the areas that require treatment.

With liposuction, Melbourne patients can remove stubborn pockets of fat and re-volumise other areas that have been negatively affected by ageing.

Understanding liposuction

The technique of liposuction is commonly used as a way to reshape the body. Areas that seem resistant to exercise have excess fat removed. Usually, this is the end of the procedure which is designed to purely improve your appearance; however, with a fat transfer, a second step is added to redistribute this fat and add volume to a different section of the body.

Case study: The advantages of a fat transfer in a breast augmentation

If we consider the breast augmentation procedure as an example, the use of a fat transfer reveals some significant benefits, including:

  • A more natural look and feel for the breast
  • The avoidance of a foreign object, like an implant, in the body
  • Lower adverse reaction risk as the body’s own fat and tissue is assimilating to the new area as opposed to an implant
  • The bonus of having another area toned while the breast area increases in size
  • Less time in surgery or recovering as two procedures are performed and recovered from at the same time

This 21 year old woman wanted to enhance her breast size and look natural without breast implants.

We performed a Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer, resulting in fuller and shapelier breasts.

For many, the idea of surgery can cause some discomfort. By having these two procedures performed at once, the prep time and length of surgery are shortened, making it far more appealing and manageable.

Before
Before

This 46 year old man had a pronounced waist (love handles) and chest as well as protruding beer belly. These are common problems with men.

After
After

A total of 4 litres of fat was removed from his waist, abdomen and chest to achieve a more pleasant contour. Our Liposuction Melbourne Clinic performed this procedure.

Liposuction commonly removes fat from the hips, outer thighs or stomach. The fat that is removed is then prepared and injected into the areas that require treatment.
