Fat Transfer Surgery Fat transfer is the surgical procedure that involves removing a patient’s own body fat and transferring it to other parts of the body to increase volume and appearance.
We have a team of Consultant Plastic Surgeons who offer tailored operations to suit individual needs including fat transfer for face-lift, and breast augmentation.
If you are considering fat transfer you can book a consultation with one of our Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons to gain a full understanding of fat transfer and a chance to raise any concerns you may have with the procedure.
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:
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 consultation with one of our Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons to discuss possible surgery.
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.

The initial consultation guide price covers the cost of your initial appointment with your consultant. The consultation fee is due in full on the day of the appointment.
The Main Treatment guide price covers your stay in hospital as long as it is clinically necessary. This guide price includes all pre-operative tests that the Hospital requires to ensure you are fit for surgery, the fees for your consultant and anaesthetist to perform the procedure, and any nursing care, medication and food after. However, if your consultant advises that you need a different prosthesis, or you request a non standard item, then the guide price for your treatment will alter. This will be made clear to you before you go ahead with your treatment and will become the ‘fixed price’. The payment for the main treatment is due in full, ten days prior to your admission date.
Post discharge care following your discharge from Hospital is included in your fixed price care package. This price includes a single post-op consultant consultation and physiotherapy visits (up to the number stated), removal of any stitches, change of dressings and any medication you need to take home with you. The main treatment price also includes the cost of treating any complications at the Hospital for 365 days following the date of your procedure where those complications arise directly out of the treatment you receive as part of your treatment package and are identified within 365 days of your discharge from Hospital, provided that you have followed the advice of your Consultants and any other medical professionals involved in your care following the procedure. This includes any consultations, outpatient, day-care and inpatient treatment that the Consultant says you need and which the Hospital agrees to provide.

About your recovery:
How long does it take to recover from a fat transfer procedure?
Recovery times and the speed with which you can return to everyday activities can vary depending on the individual and the type of surgery carried out.
With a fat transfer you should be able to go home the same day or the day after, and if you are required to stay over night there is no impact on the price you pay for your treatment.
Be sure to discuss your return to work following a fat transfer with your Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon.
It is important that you follow the advice the hospital and your consultant provide you.
As part of our aftercare you will be provided with a direct telephone number to our nurses department should you experience any difficulties or concerns when you are discharged.
