Fat Transfer Surgery in Bangalore


Fat harvested in ways similar to liposuction can be used elsewhere in the body to improve fullness in the recipient area. Fat injected into areas requiring volume-enhancement produces safe, long-lasting, and natural-appearing results as volume is replaced to tissues where fat is diminished. This can be useful in face, neck, breasts, buttocks etc. This procedure is deemed much safer and economical to using artificial fillers.

Fat grafting, also called autologous fat transfer, is emerging as a new breast reconstruction technique. In fat grafting, fat tissue is removed from other parts of your body -- usually your thighs, belly, and buttocks -- by liposuction. The tissue is then processed into liquid and injected into the breast area to recreate the breast. It can be tempting to think about fat grafting as a “safer” procedure, since it doesn’t involve major surgery. However, we’re not yet sure how successful it will be over the long-term. Because fat grafting is so new, no large clinical studies have been done on the procedure. The studies that have been done involve fewer than 100 women and the average follow-up time is less than 4 years.

It’s also important to know that in many cases, the fat injected into the breast area may be reabsorbed by the body over time and the breast may lose some volume. This is why some plastic surgeons initially may add more fat than you think you need.In addition, if fat grafting doesn’t work and you decide you want a flap reconstruction, you may have already used up an important source of tissue such as the belly area. These are all things to keep in mind.
