We’ve all looked in the mirror and thought wouldn’t it be great if we could move that bit of fat from over here and add it over there. Well today’s popular technique of fat-harvesting or lipofixing allows you to do just that. And because you are using your own fat (autologous fat) it is not only safe it is also arguably the best product to put into your body to add volume to areas where you want to restore or create more fullness.

Fat harvesting can be used for a range of procedures because you are not limited to where you can transfer the fat to compared with implants. So for example you can remove fat from the stomach or bottom area and place it in the upper third of the face to create an uplift effect to reshape and reinvigorate your appearance. Or a popular choice would be to reshape your breasts after children.

Another use of fat transfer is to fill out facial creases, laughter lines or depressions in the legs or bottom. Unfortunately, as we age we lose volume to the face making us look a little more tired and older. These small procedures are very effective as only small amounts of fat are used and therefore the original shape of the harvested area does not look disproportional but can help recontour and refresh the face. Autologus fat as a filling agent can also be used to add volume to the back of the hands where the skin has thinned with age.

For the use of larger fat deposits you can use harvested fat to add volume to other areas of the body such as the breasts, buttocks or penis. Since it is the patients own fat there is no risk of rejection or allergic reaction once the filling agent has been injected. The procedure also gives a smooth and rounded effect adding volume and plumpness to the area as well as improving appearance. It also means you don’t have any of the risks or restrictions associated with implants.
