Fat transfer is a natural way to volumize or re-contour your body by moving fat tissue from one part of the body to another. A person’s own fat may be used to improve the appearance of the body by moving it from an area where it is less needed (usually the thighs or abdomen) to an area that has lost tissue volume due to aging, trauma, surgery, birth defects, or other causes. Typically, the transferred fat results in an increase in volume of the body site being treated. Since some of the fat that is transferred does not maintain its volume over time, Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva may inject more than is needed at the time to achieve the desired end result. Over a few weeks, the amount of transferred fat will decrease. At times, more fat may need to be transferred to maintain the desired results. The procedure takes approximately 30-45 minutes and is done under local anaesthesia and mild sedation.
LEA Plastic Surgery exclusively uses Puregraft® – a new technology that is clinically proven to improve the quality of fat transfer results. Using a gentle and efficient filtration system, Puregraft® cleans your fat tissue removing 97% of unwanted contaminants which cause inflammation and tissue resorption (absorption of the graft back into the body). The purified fat graft provides Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva maximum control to sculpt the most natural contours possible. The result is a safer procedure, faster recovery, and a long-lasting and natural looking result.
