Autologous Fat Transfer Procedure

Autologous Fat Transfer

Autologous fat transfer or microlipoinjection, is a procedure which uses an individual’s own body fat to plump up the sunken or emaciated areas. The term “Autologous” means the use of one’s own tissues or fat.

Procedure

The procedure is performed in following three steps:

  • First step is the gentle liposuction (removal) of some excess fat from the patients own body parts like abdomen, thighs, or buttocks.
  • Second step involves the isolation, processing and cleansing of the fat cells.
  • Finally in the third step, fat cells are re-injected into the targeted areas to give them fuller appearance.

Advantages

  • The natural-appearing result lasts long
  • Safe & nearly scarless procedure
  • Patient gets larger and natural feeling contours without implant
  • Dual benefit of fat removal from fatty area and fat injection to flat area

Disadvantages

  • Only about 60% of fat survives the transfer procedure with permanence after about 4-6 months
  • It is a longer procedure due to liposuction and fat processing steps
  • The size increase depends upon the availability of the donor fat and the space available within recipient site
  • It may be required to repeat the procedure several times to achieve the desired results
  • Some complications associated with liposuction like swelling, may occur but generally resolves within 2-3 weeks

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a procedure designed to aesthetically enhance the self-image of a woman with small breasts, by restoring or enhancing shape, curve, and contour of the breasts. Breast augmentation performed by autologous fat transfer technique gives fuller, larger, more proportioned breasts, by using the individuals own body fat.
