Autologous Fat Transfer


Autologous Fat Transfer is a safe, natural and highly effective Plastic/cosmetic surgery procedure

Advantages of this procedure:

  • Bio-compatible – which means that a patient’s own fat tissue will be transferred.
  • There is no graft vs host reaction, foreign body reaction or any transmission of bacteria, viruses or fungi.
  • The skin surface will become younger, as the germ cells in fat tissue are made available in greater quantities by means of a straightforward method, and rejuvenation provides a long-lasting result.

Last, but not least, this procedure can be used as part of body reshaping/contouring, when we can use this method to achieve a better shape when carried out in combination with liposuction.

How long will be the results last?
As long as there is no change in body weight or general health the results of autologous fat transfer will last for a minimum of 10 years.

We can harvest and transfer a certain amount of a patient’s own fat tissue from other regions of the body, ie the abdominal wall, back, flanks and lateral thighs, medial knee, to the face.

Areas to be treated include:

  • glabellar (frown) lines
  • around the eyes
  • cheeks
  • whole face
  • nasolabial folds
  • lids
  • chin and around the chin

The operation is carried out either under local or general anaesthesia.  The procedure can successfully aid in rejuvenation of sagging facial tissues and the overlying skin that has thinned through age.

This rejuvenation effect will be visible after a minimum period of six months

Following an in-depth consultation to determine a patient’s suitability for this procedure, we can transfer a certain amount of fat tissue into the breast of a woman as an alternative to breast implants.

When is this procedure suitable?

  • When the breasts are too small
  • When there is breast asymmetry
  • For contour correction

The operation is carried out under general anaesthesia, and the patient will remain overnight in the clinic.  Antibiotic treatment is recommended for one week following the procedure.  A special support/compression bra should be worn for one month post-op.

The final result will be seen after one year.


Buttock Augmentation using autologous fat is an appropriate and effective procedure for those having excess fat tissue in the abdomen, lumbar region, the hips and back of the thighs, and for those who do not wish to have synthetic buttock implants.

Autologous fat transfer using a patient’s own tissue offers many advantages.
  The combination of liposuction to areas of excess fat and the grafting of this fat into the buttocks is a powerful method of increasing the size and shape of the gluteal area relative to the surrounding areas.  The grafted fat is soft and pliable, and homogenous with the surrounding tissues.

The procedure is carried out under general anaesthesia.
  Following surgery you will need to wear a special light support/compression garment for 2 – 4 weeks, and lie on your stomach for two weeks. Sitting down is possible using pillows positioned around the treated areas, but care must be taken at all times so as not to reposition the newly-grafted fat.

You will be prescribed antibiotics after surgery, and the use of Betadine soap is recommended in order to keep the areas clean.

The inner thighs or the mid part of the femoral region and the labia majora (genital areas) can also be treated in the same way for fat transfer.

Calf Augmentation using autologous fat transfer is an effective operation for enlargement of the calf.  A patient’s own fat tissue can be made available from regions such as the abdomen, the lumbar area, the hips and the back of the thighs. The fat is used to increase the calf volume, or to give a better shape and correct asymmetry.

This procedure can be carried out either under general or local anaesthesia.
  Following surgery, you will be prescribed antibiotic therapy, and will be instructed to wear a light compression stocking together with shoes having a heel height of 5-6 cm.

As we age, our hands reflect the story of the passing years and cannot hide the signs of our real age. For years cosmetic surgeons were unable to offer an effective solution to this problem, but now autologous fat transfer can provide a very natural and effective method for rejuvenation of the hands.

We can harvest a patient’s own fat tissue from the abdomen, inner thighs, and upper arms and transfer this to the area around the tendons and blood vessels of the hand.
  After six months the skin in this area will be much younger giving a hydrated, silky and thicker appearance – the hands of a much younger person!
