Fat grafting is a procedure using fat taken from unwanted fatty deposits elsewhere in your body and relocating them.
Our fat grafting procedure is performed under local anaesthetic in our clinic. Tiny parcels of fat are harvested from a donor area such as your thighs, inner knees or lower abdomen (or flanks in men) through a fine specialised cannula. The fat is condensed using a centrifuge and then injected into other fat deficient areas of your body through puncture holes without cutting or removing skin.
The fat can be injected into different parts of the body, but is most commonly used to re-volume the face, neck and hands. The procedure uses your own fat cells which reduces the chances of allergy or contamination.
