VIA FAT TRANSFER – ACHIEVE A TWO-FOR-ONE EFFECT
Do you want to reverse signs of aging or enhance and augment certain body parts using natural means? If yes, fat transfer could be an option for you.
Fat transfer, also referred to as fat grafting, or fat injections, or lipomodelling, is an advanced body contouring surgery wherein fat harvested or removed from one part of your body (donor area) is injected to another part (recipient area) to enhance that part. Since your own body fat is used for the augmentation and enhancement, fat grafting is 100% natural.
Fat grafting or fat transfer is typically done to the face, neck, hands, breasts, and/ or buttocks. The surgery to transfer fat to buttocks to augment them is called the Brazilian Butt Lift or BBL.
At our state-of-the-art plastic surgery clinic in London, our experienced body contouring surgeons use the latest equipment and techniques to harvest excess fat and transfer it to the desired body parts.

FAT TRANSFER FAQs
Fat Transfer or Fat Grafting is an advanced body contouring surgery that achieves a two-for-one effect. On the one hand, it removes excess fat from specific areas of your body (donor areas) via liposuction, making those parts slimmer and more defined. On the other hand, the fat removed or harvested from the donor areas is repurposed and used to enhance, augment, or rejuvenate other body parts (recipient areas).
Fat Transfer surgery can rejuvenate your face and neck by minimizing fine lines, reversing the fat and collagen lost due to aging. It can also be used to augment your breasts naturally instead of using breast implants. In its most popular form, known as the Brazilian Butt Lift, or BBL, it is performed for buttock augmentation.
Fat Transfer surgery is a 3-step process:
Fat Removal/ Harvesting – Your plastic surgeon will agree with you on a donor site for fat extraction. The fat may be removed from the body by a fine surgical instrument (cannula) inserted through a small incision (liposuction).
Fat Preparation – Using specialized equipment, the extracted fat is purified and made ready to use in the recipient site. Blood and other body fluids are separated from the fat during this process.This preparation process may include washing, filtering, sedimentation or centrifugation (spinning) of the fat.
Fat Transfer/ Injection – The extracted and purified fat is then injected into the chosen recipient areas using either a smaller cannula or needle, or directly through an incision or puncture holes. Since some of the transferred fat does not maintain its volume over time, your surgeon 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 grafting sessions may be needed to attain the desired results.
Fat is most commonly harvested or extracted from the abdomen, back, thighs, and hips.
The most common recipient areas where fat is transferred are:
Face – for lip augmentation, plumping of sunken cheeks, defining chin and jaw lines, correcting crows feet, filling out frown lines and creases around the nose, scar revision on the face; and overall facial rejuvenation making you look softer and younger
Neck – to minimize the creases on the neck
Hands – to reduce the appearance of gnarled, bony hands and give a more youthful look
Breasts – breast augmentation via fat transfer is extremely popular with people who want to have a natural augmentation and avoid using breast implants; also used for breast reconstruction after a mastectomy
Buttocks – buttock augmentation via fat transfer (Brazilian Butt Lift/ BBL) is one of the most popular fat transfer surgeries – it gives volume and also provides the appearance of a buttock lift
Genitals – to reshape and resize male or female genitalia
- Natural, long lasting and safe method
- Can be used to enhance, augment, and rejuvenate body parts
- Can be used to reverse signs of aging on face and hands
- Gives a naturally softer, younger, plumper look
- Since own body fat is used, chances of adverse reactions are reduced
- Bonus impact of reducing fat from areas that have excess fat
- Can be used on most body parts
- Procedure can be repeated to build on results
Fat can be injected throughout the face and in the front of the neck to give a more youthful appearance and fill creases and wrinkles. Common areas of fat transfer include the lips, temples, the folds around the mouth, brows, cheeks, chin and neck. This is an alternative to traditional fillers such as hyaluronic acid or hydroxyapatite. Because the fat is living, it is a more permanent solution. And it is 100% natural.
Fat injections to the face are based on the premise that addition of fat lost due to aging will restore a softer, more youthful appearance, reducing the signs of aging.
You can combine Fat Transfer to the face with other plastic surgery procedures such as facelift and blepharoplasty to achieve even more drastic results.
Your hands do tell the story of your life and age. As we age, less collagen is produced and our hands also lose volume and fullness. This leads to the appearance of gnarled, wrinkled, and bony hands.
Fat grafting covers the veins and tendons underlying the hands that become prominent due to loss of collagen with aging. It rejuvenates the appearance of your hands, making them softer and fuller.
Fat Transfer to Breasts is usually done for two reasons: Breast Augmentation or Breast Reconstruction.
Breast Augmentation via Fat Transfer: Women who want to enlarge their breasts using natural alternatives to breast implants opt for breast augmentation via fat transfer. This is ideal for women who want modest increase in breast size and prefer natural means to achieve it.
Breast Reconstruction via Fat Transfer: Women who have lost a breast/s due to mastectomy and want to restore their appearance using natural alternatives opt for breast reconstruction via fat transfer. It is also used to correct breast contour abnormalities or to give a more natural look after a breast implant.
You may need more than 1 session of fat injections to breast to achieve the desired breast size and effect.
What is Brazilian Butt Lift or BBL? Why is Fat Transfer to Buttocks or Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) done?
Brazilian Butt Lift or BBL is a surgery to increase the size of your buttocks without using buttock implants. Instead of butt implants, it is your own body’s fat extracted from other body parts, such as, stomach, back, or thighs, that is used to augment your buttock size.
Fat Transfer to Buttocks or Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is done to add volume and fullness to buttocks using your own body fat. The result is a more curvaceous buttock, but without using a buttock implant.
Combined with liposculpturing, Brazilian Butt Lift, can also be used to achieve a more desirable buttock shape for men or women who already have an ample buttock size.
You may need more than 1 session of fat injections to buttocks to achieve the desired size and results.
The ideal candidate should be a healthy person who has achieved a healthy weight. He or she should not have fluctuating weight or any medical condition that could interfere with the healing of the wound.
Prior to ensuring your candidature for the fat grafting surgery, your plastic surgeon will review your medical history and past and present health condition. You will have to discuss the medication you are on, including any herbal supplements.
As a possible fat transfer surgery candidate, you must have realistic expectations about your resultant appearance after the procedure. You must stop smoking prior to the surgery and after the surgery, as tobacco can slow down the blood flow to the skin and thereby slow down the healing process.
Your plastic surgeon will check your previous medical history prior to recommending the procedure. The surgery will show desirable results only on people who are generally healthy and do not have any previous history of having cardiac issues, pulmonary emboli, excessive bleeding, seizures, immunodeficiency disorders, or deep vein thrombosis. People with such conditions are discouraged from undergoing this procedure due to a higher risk of surgical complications.
People who are on certain anti-inflammatory and anticoagulant drugs are also discouraged from undergoing a fat transfer surgery. Further, people with poor skin elasticity are also less suitable candidates for the procedure.
The cost of Fat Transfer surgery in London depends on the following factors:
- Skill and experience of the plastic surgeon
- Standard of the clinic/ hospital where the surgery will be performed
- Areas from where fat is to be removed
- Areas to which the fat is to be transferred
- Amount of fat to be extracted and grafted
- Extent of body contouring involved
It is advised to get an initial consultation from a specialist plastic surgeon to know the cost applicable to your case and your eligibility for the procedure.
At our accredited clinic in London, we perform Fat Transfer surgery under local anesthesia or IV sedation anesthesia, depending on the extent of the procedure.
We recommend you ideally schedule 2 weeks off from work after your fat transfer surgery. During the first week, there is significant swelling, which starts to subside in the second week. The complete recovery and healing will take longer and could take upto 6 months.
Take note that even after the 2 weeks off, you might be required to avoid specific activities until you are fully recovered. For people whose work involves strenuous physical activities, you’ll need an extended time of another week or two to wait for your full recovery.
Fat Transfer is a very safe procedure but following complications may be generally seen:
– Swelling – Infection – Hematoma / seroma (blood/ fluid accumulation in the skin) – Excessive bleeding – Allergic reactions – Temporary numbness – Fat embolism – Contour irregularities – Need for repeat procedure because the fat did not “take”, i.e. it was reabsorbed by the body
Fat transfer to the face may cause complications such as lumps, puffiness, infection, and bleeding. Vision abnormalities, including blindness, may occur in rare instances. In extremely rare cases, fat transfer to the face can block oxygen supply to the brain, resulting in a stroke.
Specifically for hands, fat transfer to the hands may cause swelling and bruising that may last for a prolonged period of time.
For fat transfer to breasts, there is no reason to currently believe that such transfer causes breast cancer. While there is limited information regarding the long-term implications of such procedures, there are some potential concerns with regards to breast cancer detection. Since the transferred fat may become firm and cause lumps, it may be necessary to have radiological studies (mammogram, ultrasound, or MRI) performed to ensure these lumps are not due to cancer. It is also possible that the firmness may make it more difficult for you or your doctor to examine the breasts. It is also possible that a biopsy may be needed if there is concern about any abnormal findings in your breasts.
In case of fat transfer to buttocks, since large volumes of fat transfer are typically needed for augmentation, the transferred fat may become firm and cause lumps.
Most patients experience pain and discomfort after the surgery when anesthesia effects diminish. You will start to feel comfortable after a couple of days.
Immediately after the fat grafting surgery, the liposuction incisions will be covered in bandages. These loosely wrapped bandages will help minimize the swelling. Sometimes, a small tube will be placed in the donor area to drain away from the excess blood and lymph fluid.
During your first 2 weeks of recovery, you can expect issues with pain, swelling and bruising. The pain is managed with prescribed medications and the bruising through cold compresses or Arnica gel. You should get plenty of rest during this time, though you should walk lightly in order to promote circulation and avoid blood clots.
After the first week of recovery, it is necessary to do a follow-up visit with your plastic surgeon to monitor your progress— to check the incision sites. Attend all your follow-up visits to help with the full recovery process.
After 2-3 weeks, you will have recovered enough to return to most of your normal routine. The swelling will have largely subsided, though complete swelling may take upto 6 months to disappear.
It is still best to do follow-up visits with your plastic surgeon for continuing post-surgical care. It may be possible that you require supplemental procedures after 6 months to get the desired results if the fat does not “take” as expected.
Post-surgery, there will be an immediate visible improvement in the shape or appearance of the treated areas. The full results will be visible in about 6 months once the swelling has completely gone and the fat has taken to the injected areas.
For best results, strictly follow the care instructions of your plastic surgeon, prior to, and in the aftermath of the surgery. For lasting results maintain a stable and healthy weight.
It is important to note that the longevity of your results depends on the techniques for harvesting, purification, and fat injection used by your cosmetic surgeon, and also on the skill of your surgeon. For this reason, choose your plastic surgeon with extreme care.

I had fat grafting surgery from Dr.hasan and I’m so satisfied, i would say that he’s a professional and he really did a great work
Fatima Gul (2021)
I highly recommend Dr. Hasan as an excellent Dr and professional. I flew all the way from Boston to Dubai to get a big mole removed on my left cheek. I saw a surgeon here in Boston and he told me since it’s deep rooted, it will leave a big scar. I wasn’t sure for a long time either to remove it or not. My husband had a big cyst on his forehead for years and Dr.Hasan removed it a few years back,it didn’t leave any scar and the healing was very smooth. That gave me the confidence to get my mole removed from Dr. Hasan. That’s the best choice I made. I got it removed in the beginning of February and in less then 2 months my scar is almost 90% gone. My experience with Dr. Hasan gave me the confidence to get micro fat grafting on my face and under my eyes and I am happy beyond words with the results. He was very accommodating with my schedule. An exceptional surgeon who deeply cares about his patients. My results are encouraging some of my peers to go to Dubai only to get similar procedure done from Dr. Hasan. Thank you Dr. Hasan and team.
