Fat transplantation is a procedure in which fat cells are taken from a part of the body where there is an excess of fat, such as the abdomen or thighs, and then injected into another part of the body that needs more volume or shape. This procedure can be used to improve the appearance of areas such as the face, breasts, buttocks or hands.
The process of fat transplantation begins with the patient being assessed by a plastic surgeon at Groruddalsklinikken. The surgeon will discuss the patient’s wishes and expectations, as well as evaluate whether the patient is suitable for the procedure. It is important to note that not all patients are good candidates for fat transplantation, as it requires a sufficient amount of fat tissue to be obtained from.
Once the patient is approved for fat grafting, the surgeon will perform the procedure under general or local anesthesia, depending on the extent of the procedure. First, the fat cells will be retrieved using a special suction cannula through small incisions in the skin. This fat is then processed and purified before being injected into the desired area.
Fat transplantation can be an effective method to improve the volume and shape of different parts of the body. It can be used to fill in wrinkles and lines on the face, increase breast volume, give more shape to the buttocks or even out unevenness on the body. The results of fat grafting can be permanent, but it is important to note that a certain percentage of the transferred fat cells may not survive and be absorbed by the body.
After fat transplantation, the patient will experience a certain degree of swelling, bruising and discomfort in the treated areas. It is important to pay close attention to the post-treatment instructions given by Groruddalsklinikken to ensure a quick and successful healing. The patient may also be advised to wear compression garments to reduce swelling and support the new shape.
Like any surgical procedure, fat grafting also involves certain risks and complications. These can include infection, bleeding, asymmetry, unevenness or loss of fat cells. It is important to discuss these risks thoroughly with a plastic surgeon at Groruddalsklinikken before making a decision about fat transplantation.
