Stubborn pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise can keep you from looking and feeling your best. If you would like to whittle down problem areas like the hips, thighs and abdomen, there is now a way to put that unwanted fat tissue to good use. Thanks to innovative fat transfer techniques, you can remove that stubborn fat from one area and then use it to augment another area that could use an extra boost.
Step One: Liposuction
Liposuction is the procedure used to remove those stubborn fat deposits from nearly any area of the body. At Linia, we use two innovative liposuction techniques to get the best possible results with minimal trauma to the body and shorter recovery periods. Vaser lipo uses vibration to break down fat cells before removing them from the body. Soft liposculpture removes fat in layers before administering deep massage techniques to evenly distribute remaining fat and limit post-procedural swelling. We will help you decides with liposuction technique will provide you with the best possible results.
Step Two: Fat Harvesting
Once the fat is removed, it must be purified and prepared for injection. This process is performed right in our office and just takes a few minutes of time. The advantage to harvesting the fat on site is that you can have both fat reduction and fat augmentation in a single treatment session. Once the fat is prepared, it is placed into syringes for the augmentation step.
Step Three: Augmentation
Fat injections can then be placed in strategic locations that need a boost in size and volume. If enough fat is harvested, it can be used to augment larger areas of the body like the buttocks or breasts. Smaller amounts can be used to restore facial volume to areas like the cheeks, chin, jawline and lips. Fat injections work in a similar fashion to soft tissue fillers like Juvederm, only fat tends to feel more natural and last longer for some patients. In fact, some fat transfers can offer nearly permanent benefits, making this a good alternative to implants in areas like the buttocks, breasts and chin.
Fat transfer has become the latest craze in the world of plastic surgery due to the double benefits provided. While you are sculpting one area of the body by removing unwanted fat, you can also enhance another area using your body’s own cells. The body contouring results can be both dramatic and long lasting. To learn more about fat transfer, contact the Linia staff at 0845 230 1700.
