Fat Grafting Explained

The literature describes the transfer of cells to not only provide volume but rejuvenation properties. Recent improvements in fat harvesting and preparation have resulted in fat grafting being more predictable than in the past. Addition of fat allows contour changes to be volumized compared to removal alone by liposuction.

Fat grafting can be performed to the facial regions (micro and nano fat). Regions such as temporal hollows, tear troughs, cheeks, jawlines, and deep creases can be addressed by fat grafting. Fat grafting can also be performed to the hands, as well as the body (regular fat).

The fat is usually taken from regions advised by Dr Randle at consultation, prepared, and injected into irregular regions and areas of deficiency. Fat grafting can be performed on its own under local anaesthesia or in combination with procedures such as facelift, brow lift and blepharoplasty. Minor volume fat transfer can be done as an outpatient procedure under local anaesthesia.

Fat Grafting to Hands

Over time our hands can wrinkle with prominent veins from loss of collagen production and tissue loss. Fat grafting is a procedure which may assist in providing volume, especially to the intermetacarpal spaces. Fat is usually taken from the flank region of the body and reinjected into the hands under general anaesthesia, with the recovery time being expected to be 1 to 2 weeks.
