What happens during a fat transfer procedure?

During the fat transfer procedure the surgeon removes excess fat tissue from unwanted areas (similar to liposuction) and transfers it to other parts of the body.

Possible areas to transfer fat include:

  • Face
  • Lips
  • Breast
  • Tear trough (depressions which run from the nose and all around under the eye)
  • Any post-traumatic contour defects and scars

If you would like to find out more, you can book a free consultation with one of our Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons to discuss possible surgery. Please note Miss R Taghizadeh does not offer free consultations.

The most suitable type of surgery for you will be discussed at your appointments with your surgeon.

Before considering surgery it is also important to be aware that all surgical procedures carries a certain amount of risk and it is important that you understand the risks involved with Fat transfer specifically.
