Natural-looking fat transfer with Dr Kian
Fat transfer (also called fat grafting, lipofilling or lipomodelling) is a procedure where autologous (your own) fat is taken from one area of your body and transferred to another area of your body that is lacking volume or needing more definition. This is a popular treatment to improve the contours of the face and breasts.
Fat transfer is an increasingly popular technique that enhances the size of your breast or without the need for prosthetic or silicone implants. This technique is suitable for people who require breast enlargement and have excess fat elsewhere.
This procedure can also be done to enhance definition in your face with natural-looking results. This can be done in areas where you naturally lack volume in or have lost volume in due to ageing. It can also be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles. This procedure is similar to dermal filler treatment, however fat transfer is more long-lasting compared with hyaluronic acid fillers which degrade over time. Fat transfer can be carried out alongside other facial or neck rejuvenation procedure. Besides volume enhancement, there has been increasing interest and research in the anti-ageing and regenerative potential of autologous fat, as we now know that it is the richest source of mesenchymal stem cells in the body.

Most people who seek fat transfer would like to add volume to the breast or enhance certain features of their face. Using your own fat has the benefit of removing fat from a part of the body where it is undesired and using it to enhance another part of the body without the use of implants while still giving long-lasting results.
As we age, our faces naturally lose volume and appear more deflated due to changes in our skin, fat, muscles and bones. Our skin loses elasticity and becomes more saggy, while years of muscle use cause wrinkles to form. We lose volume in our fat and bones, resulting in a deflated or sunken look. Traditional facelift surgery does not address all these changes and volume enhancement can be provided with fat transfer.
Fat transfer can be used in the breast for volume enhancement or volume replacement. Volume replacement is increasingly popular for patients who previously have had breast implants and would like to have them removed. Fat transfer provides an option to replace the lost volume.
