Body contouring with fat transfer
Contemporary techniques of transferring the fat from one part of the body to another gave us the possibility to enlarge some parts of the body so that the entire body is reshaped, or better to say contoured. Fat transfer enables lifting or contouring the buttocks, upper leg, lower leg, breasts. The percentage of surviving tissue is 40 to 90%, depending on the surgeon and his/her technique.
- Duration of the surgery:
From one hour up to several hours, depending on the part of the body on which the surgery is performed
Depending on the area in which the surgery is performed, it could be local infiltrative Anesthesia, with or without analgo-sedation, or in general Anesthesia.
- Surgical procedure:
Most often the fat s removed from the abdominal area, or from the back, arms, hips. The infiltration is done through 3.5mm cut, and then the fat is harvested with special cannulas. The fat is then processed (centrifugation, filtration, washing) and as such inserted in the millimeter holes in the area that is to be enlarged (buttocks, breasts, upper leg, lower leg.)
- Postoperative procedure:
After this surgery hospital stay is advised. The region in question is bandaged, and adequately compressed. Garments are compulsory for one month.
Swelling, hematoma, fat embolism, thrombosis, asymmetry, infection, fat reabsorption.
