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 the 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?

A new approach to combating wrinkles

One of the most exciting areas of exploration relating to fat transfer is in its applications in minimising the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines in the face and hands.

Previously, dermal fillers made from animal collagen or hyaluronic acid were the preferred tool to help fill in wrinkles, but fat transfer offers a different solution. Fat transfer facial and hand rejuvenation procedures can give you a fresher and more youthful appearance, all without the introduction of fillers – which some patients remain sensitive to.

A great follow-up to liposuction

Similarly, fat grafting is useful for addressing sunken and creased areas present after liposuction. Often after the removal of large quantities of fat, the skin over the treated area can appear wrinkled and deflated. Targeted reintroduction of fat can help to alleviate this. A small amount of the same fat that was removed from your body as part of the initial slimming procedure can be cleaned and carefully reinjected into the body, helping to achieve a more natural contour while still preserving the overall weight loss and health benefits associated with liposuction.

Valuable for breast asymmetry correction

Plastic Surgeons have begun exploring the possibility of using larger quantities of transferred fat as part of cosmetic and reconstructive breast procedures, and the results are encouraging.  Asymmetry between breasts – as well as simple enhancement – can be addressed using the body’s own fat stores, offering the patient a larger, softer and more naturally contoured breast suitable for those unwilling or unable to use implants.
