Body and breast reshaping procedures

Cosmetic Fat Transfer

For men and women who wish to enhance or augment an area of the body lacking in volume, fat transfer is fast becoming regarded as the perfect, natural solution.

The procedure involves a donor site (where the fat is being taken from) and a recipient site (where it is being taken to). Often the donor site will be areas that are prone to storing fat such as the abdomen, buttocks, hips or thighs and, in my practice, the fat is most likely to be transferred to the breasts to increase volume where required.

As a fully qualified plastic and reconstructive surgeon that has specialised in breast reconstruction, I have a great deal of experience in performing fat transfer and can produce safe, effective and predictable results for the patient.

How is fat transfer performed?

The process involves taking excess fat from an area where it is not needed or wanted, extracting it and then transferring it to an area where the demand is greater. It is sometimes also referred to as a ‘fat graft’ or ‘lipo modelling’.

Get in Touch

Typically, I remove the fat using Coleman Technique as there is a limit to how much fat can be transferred as the cells require a reliable blood supply when grafted to survive.

Once the fat has been extracted it will be spun in a centrifuge which separates the adipose fat cells from the other liquids that have been extracted with it, such as blood, plasma and water. Once the fat has been isolated, a small syringe is used to inject the fat into the host area; plumping, enhancing and restoring volume to this desired area(s).

As some of the fat will always be absorbed by the body, the patient must understand that the initial results will change slightly over the following few months and they may require a repeat procedure(s) to produce the desired results.

What my patients say about me

Mr Ramsey performed a breast reduction and abdominoplasty for me in October 2017. Prior to the operation, I had two consultations where the procedure was explained to me clearly and concisely. I was also talked through the possible pitfalls. I am happy to report that I am delighted with the results. The standard of the work is excellent. Obviously, you have scars after such procedures but these are incredibly neat and fading fast.

Mr Ramsey was very professional in the way he dealt with me while also being pleasant to talk to. He put me at my ease right from the start. I had total confidence in his abilities and he has more than lived up to my expectations. I could not recommend him highly enough.
