Many patients elect to have Fat Transfers to part of their body and legs to enhance their shape, replace lost volume or correct trauma and injuries.
At the Me Clinic we have over 35 years of Cosmetic Surgery experience and we were one of the first clinics in Australia in the 1980's to use Fat Transfer procedures to increase volume and shape in patient's bodies and legs.
The procedure involves removing a patient's fat tissue by Liposuction and grafting it in the parts of the body that require augmentation. Fat is naturally occurring and the addition of the patient's own fat (Autologous fat transfer) complements the existing fat in the body and when transferred and grafted it provides a natural feeling and looking volume or shape change.
The rate of absorption (if any) of the fat cannot be gauged for each patient prior to the procedure. In our experience with some patients a successful Fat Transfer and Graft procedure can last many years and even a lifetime. Patients are also able to combine this procedure with our Anti-Ageing Procedures to increase survival rate of the fat cells and promote blood vessel formation and circulation to the newly deposited fat tissue.
After your procedure you may feel drowsy from the anaesthetic. It is important to have someone drive you home and stay overnight. On this evening we recommend you rest. You are provided with an after hours direct number in the event you may have any questions or concerns you wish to speak to us about.
The next day or within a few days you must come back to the Clinic for your first post-operative check. You can expect a small amount of swelling, which will gradually settle but you should be able to see results almost immediately, from the increase in volume to the change in shape.
Our Surgeons and Nurses will continue to monitor your recovery through a number of post-operative check-ups and are available at any time if you have questions or concerns. If you have any questions or concerns please call the Clinic to speak with your Surgeon, Nurses or one of our staff members.
This can be a difficult question to answer, as there is no one general price, but rather the cost is dependent on the extent of fat transfer and the goals of the patient.
A consultation with our Surgeon is the best way of exploring your specific goals, and getting an accurate no obligation quote for ensuring you have all the information you need before deciding. We want you to be well informed, and clear on all aspects of any procedure before proceeding.
