How Fat Transfer Can Work for You
While there exist a galaxy of options in the field of injectable and grafting treatments, most of these
procedures involve introducing prostheses – such as silicone implants – into the body. Recent innovations have led to a range of procedures that allow the surgeon to use the patient’s own fat stores to augment other parts of the body. Known as a fat graft or fat transfer, this technique can be used in a wide range of procedures, achieving natural-looking and highly desirable results in reconstructive and cosmetic procedures.
Pioneering Next Generation Fat Grafting in Australia
Introducing the 24K Fat Transfer System
Dr Vlad Milovic has extensive experience in fat grafting, and has successfully deployed this technique to achieve a range of goals for diverse patients. It is a natural alternative to dermal fillers.
Dr Milovic is the first to use the next generation in fat transfer technology in Australia, the 24K Fat Transfer system. It’s designed to be pure and natural using your own fat which is harvested through liposuction from areas such as the stomach, love handles, thighs or wherever excess fat is located on your body.
Why Is 24k Fat Transfer Better?
- Natural alternative to synthetic fillers and implants using your own fat
- Dramatic and long lasting results
- Less bruising and swelling
- Pure, golden fat enriched with stem cells from your own body
- When 24k fat is transferred to the face it can provide natural plumpness and a healthy glow.
- Compared to synthetic fillers that can create a “waxy” appearance, 24k fat enhances the skin’s natural radiance and boosts the presence of skin-firming collagen.
- 24k fat transfer is often a perfect complement to a facelift—this process is called a hybrid facelift.

A New Approach to Combating Wrinkles
Facial rejuvenation is one of the most popular and exciting applications for fat transfer treatments. During facial fat transfer, purified fat is injected into ageing or imbalanced areas of the face to add smooth volume and shape that can minimise the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The high-quality fat collected through the 24k system is healthy, dense, and a “liquid gold” color, which gives it the ability to beautifully plump the skin, enhance the skin’s glow, and improve the condition of skin. Fat transfer can also be used to rejuvenate the appearance of ageing hands.
Unlike animal collagen and hyaluronic acid fillers, which some patients are sensitive to, natural fat collected from the patient’s own body is extremely well-tolerated. Synthetic fillers can also give skin a “waxy” look, which may appear unnatural, while 24k fat can boost skin’s natural radiance and provide supple plumpness. Additionally, when fat transfer treatments are performed by an experienced and highly trained plastic surgeon, results are generally much longer-lasting than those achieved with traditional injectables.
Dr Milovic now offers a hybrid facelift option, which combines facelift surgery with volumising 24k fat transfers to achieve optimal facial rejuvenation. This state-of-the-art technique can correct skin and tissue laxity, as well as recession of youthful fat, restoring lift, smooth contours, and supple volume to the face.
A Great Follow-Up to Liposuction
Fat grafting can also be useful to correct aesthetic abnormalities, such as sunken and creased areas, that may develop after high-volume liposuction procedures. When large quantities of fat are removed from the body with liposuction, it is possible for the skin in the treated area to appear somewhat wrinkled and deflated. Using the targeted reintroduction of fat via fat transfer, Dr Milovic can restore a smoother, firmer appearance to these problem areas. In these cases, Dr Milovic utilises a small amount of the purified fat collected during the initial liposuction procedure to reinject into the target area. The advantages of this procedure include a more natural contour that allows patients to maintain the overall slenderizing effect and weight-loss health benefits associated with liposuction.
Valuable for Breast Augmentation, Asymmetry Correction, & Reconstruction
Transferred fat can be utilised to enhance the quality of breast augmentation procedures for thin patients where the implant boundary may be visible. Adding fat to the breasts in these cases can soften and camouflage the appearance of the implant for a more natural-looking outcome.
