Fat Transfer Procedures Available In London
The uses for fat transfer within cosmetic surgery is an area of specialist interest for Paul Banwell and so he is able to offer a wide range of procedures.
Breast Fat Transfer
Fat removed during liposuction can be injected into the breasts, adding volume and creating the shape and size desired by the patient. This procedure is one of the most popular Paul performs and can be a part of his Mummy Makeover programme.
One exciting modern development with this surgery is that it has been shown to have anti-ageing benefits. The fat cells contain high levels of stem cells which can have rejuvenate properties.
Recent advancements have also helped to greatly improve the graft ‘take’ rates, Paul uses the PureGraft system which helps to purify and prepare fat cells and so optimise them prior to the re-injection back into the breast.
Fat can also be used alone or in combination with the latest generation of great implants. The skill of the surgeon is to be able to work with the patient to find the best approach to achieve the desired results – whether this is through pure fat transfer or a combination of fat transfer and implants.
The procedure itself is a straightforward one for a leading cosmetic surgeon and recovery post surgery is quick. A patient can typically return to work after no more than a week and sometimes after a day. Light exercise can be resumed in short order too – full post operation timescales would of course be discussed.
Labia Fat Transfer
A surgery that can be performed in Paul’s London Harley Street clinic, labia fat transfer has grown in popularity with many prospective patients desiring a ‘puffing’ of the labia major to create a more youthful appearance.
For this procedure, fat is usually harvested from the abdomen or outer thighs and then injected into the outer labia.
Over correction is usually recommended as there is a degree of absorption post surgery, this again indicative of the need to choose a truly expert surgeon, one who has the experience to be able to gauge how to achieve the very best results.
Fat Transfer for other procedures
Fat transfer can also be used for a range of other purposes.
This technique can help rectify contour irregularities from previous liposuction surgery, removing small defects that have become apparent.
An exciting area for use is in hair restoration, when used in the early stages of hair loss it can be used instead of a hair transplant. Recent research has shown that the injection of fat may help to stimulate the hair follicles and in turn lead to new hair growth.
If this is an area of interest, please contact Paul, one of the first surgeons in the UK to be trained in these hair restoration techniques.
Fat transfer is also used for scar management and scar revision, with some life enhancing results produced in this area.
Please note that fat transfer to buttocks (Brazilian Bum Lift) is not offered as a procedure. In common with all British-qualified surgeons, Paul is not permitted to perform this procedure as it has been linked to a number of deaths (through it being performed by non specialist surgeons lacking in training).
You might already be somewhat familiar with Paul as he is a regular face on TV and in national media because of his status as a leading cosmetic surgeon and thought leader in this area.
Published extensively, Paul is a Visiting Professor of Plastic Surgery at Harvard Medical School and has held prestigious Fellowships around the world, including a Senior Fellowship at London’s famous Royal Marsden Hospital.
