TECHNIQUE OF LIPOFILLING / FAT GRAFTING AT DR OMAR PLASTIC SURGERY:

Lipofilling or fat grafting is a delicate process which involves removal of fat, from an area of body where it is abundant and reinjecting it carefully after complex processing to the desired area of the body to augment its contour. At Dr Omar Plastic Surgery, Lahore, Pakistan, we use imported, atraumatic fine cannulas and very small concealed incisions to achieve best results. Apart from its use as cosmetic surgery procedure, we use it as a reconstructive tool as well, e.g. for the patients with congenital or developmental facial deformity.

TIME REQUIRED AND RECOVERY AFTER FAT GRAFTING / LIPOFILLING:

For face, a procedure is concluded within 2 hours. For breast augmentation, it takes around 3-4 hours. In both cases patient can return home on the same day. A portion of fat transferred survives, ranging from 50-60%, hence most patients require more than one session to achieve desired contour. It takes around 3 months to determine if another session is needed.

Areas where LIPOFILLING is best:

Face, Hands and breasts are best for lipofilling, although it can be used on almost all areas to achieve augmentation. Recently lips can also be injected with fat for augmentation with excellent results.

Myths and side effects:

As the fat is taken from your own body, there is no reaction to it from the immune system. Even its safety is proved in breast augmentation where previous treatment for breast cancer has been given. As none of the procedure is free of any complications, so is the case with fat transfer. But fortunately they are minor and can be treated with a small revisional procedure. Maximum benefit can be obtained if this procedure is performed by an expert plastic surgeon so that there can be maximum chances of fat survival.

ANAESTHESIA FOR FAT GRAFTING / LIPOFILLING

We usually do it in local anaesthesia, unless a bigger volume of fat needs to be transferred for which we use general anaesthesia.

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER FAT GRAFTING / LIPOFILLING:

Enhancement in contour of treated body part.
Increase in self esteem
Minimal downtime
Quick return to work
