The majority of patients are really happy with the outcomes of their fat transfer procedure. To reduce the risk of complications, it is crucial to select a surgeon with the necessary training in fat transfer procedures.
During your consultation I will go over the risks and complications of your operation during your appointment.
A few of these can include:
– Scars are typically the result of tiny incisions made to extract and inject the fat (less than 1 centimetre and a few millimetres, respectively). They are often inserted covertly, although following surgery they could be noticeable.
– Infection: Some infections may need to be treated with antibiotics.
Bleeding or a collection of blood called a haematoma can cause scarring, hardness, and swelling.
– Seroma is a collection of fluid the body produces.
Problems with the wound healing – this is unusual given the little incisions utilised.
– Fat resorption and necrosis: Over time, fat is typically reabsorbed to varying degrees depending on the individual. Firm, painful lumps that may turn into scar tissue might result from fat that has lost its blood supply.
– Fat migration is the movement and accumulation of fat away from its original location.
– Unfavourable results – this could be caused by issues with asymmetry, under- or over-correcting your issue, or irregularities in the contour or skin.
What will the rest of my consultation involve?
The following will be methodically evaluated throughout the examination, and standard clinical pictures will be obtained for your medical file:
– The areas you want treating
– Facial wrinkles and fine lines, and skin quality (for facial fat transfer)
– Chest wall and breast measures (for fat transfer to the breast)
– Possible asymmetrical places where extra fat can be removed
I’ll then talk to you about your operation. So that you may make an informed choice, I will thoroughly describe the potential risks and side effects of surgery. You may be confident that I will give you his honest, professional opinion and that I will have enough of time to answer any questions you may have.
