Anca Breahna can give you a more streamlined body and restore definition to the facial features with lipofilling in Cheshire.
Lipofilling or autologous fat transfer is one of the cosmetic procedures used by plastic surgeons to re-contour the face and body.
In this minimally invasive treatment, unwanted fat is removed from one area of the body and injected elsewhere to create a fuller and more youthful appearance.
Anca Breahna offers a wide range of plastic surgery. Contact her clinic today to find out more cosmetic procedures to address your body concerns.
How does lipofilling work?
Liposuction is used to remove fat cells from donor areas. The hips, abdomen, upper arms, inner thighs and knees are potential donor areas as they often contain unwanted fat stores. The removed fat cells are spun rapidly in a machine that separates the fat from the fluids extracted.
Miss Breahna injects the fat back into your body to add volume. The fat cells are injected into the treatment area through small incisions.
Lipofilling surgery will last between one and two hours and be performed using general anaesthesia.
Where can fat transfer be used in the body?
Facial fat transfer
Lipofilling increases facial volume to create a fresher and younger appearance. Miss Breahna uses fat injection to recontour cheeks which have become flatter due to collagen loss over time. The procedure can also be used to add definition to the chin and jawline, restoring a moe youthful profile.
Breast augmentation is one of the procedures that Miss Breahn performs most often and fat-to-breast transfer can be used when a modest increase in cup size is desired. It is a popular procedure for breast surgery patients who do not want to have implants.
How many procedures will I need?
You may require more than one lipofilling treatment to achieve the results that you want. This is because your body will reabsorb over half of the fat injected.
Is fat transfer painful?
The treated areas will be tender after lipofilling and there may be some swelling. Most patients find that the swelling disappears after a couple of weeks. Pain relief will be required for a few days after surgery.
When will I see the benefits of autologous fat transfer?
The full results of your treatment will be apparent three to six months after surgery.
How much downtime will I need?
Miss Breahna’s patients spend one night in hospital after their surgery to recover from the general anaesthetic. She will assess your condition before you go home.
It is important to give your body time to heal so Miss Breahna advises her patients to book seven to ten days off work after fat transfer treatment.
You should be fit to drive after a fortnight. Overseas travel is possible after three weeks and you may return to a gentle gym regime after six.
Taking care of your body and being cautious after surgery will help to ensure that you delighted with the end results.
Will I need follow-up appointments?
Miss Breahna takes a close interest in the well-being of her patients. You can expect your progress to be monitored closely at regular follow-up appointments for a year after your plastic surgery.
Am I a suitable candidate for plastic surgery?
This type of plastic surgery is appropriate for most people who are in good health. Fat transfer is most successful for people who want to improve the contours of specific parts of their bodies. You should be at a healthy weight but will need sufficient fat stores to harvest fat for the procedure.
Are there any risks with this procedure?
Complications can occur after any procedure. All surgery carries the risk of temporary swelling, blood loss and bruising. Some fat transfer patients report numbness which subsides after a few weeks.
There may be some scarring with liposuction but this will be minimal and will fade in time.
Miss Breahna will give you further information about the risks and potential complications of surgery at your first consultation with her.
