What is a self-fat transfer?

In self-fat injection, the body’s own fat is used as a filler to compensate for wrinkles, dents and volume deficits (e.g. due to age). In addition, lipofilling can also be used to improve body contour; popular regions for this are yoke arch, chin line and buttocks.

In addition, you can improve the scar image with your own fat, but also rejuvenate the back of the hand, for example. In addition to volume, the stem cells contained in the fat help to create a younger appearance. Stem cells are original cells that have the property of being able to develop to any other cell, thus also to new, mature skin cells. The skin appears younger and fresher.

Procedure

Step 1: Anaesthetic

The self-fat injection can theoretically take place in the twilight sleep; more pleasant for the patient and the surgeon, however, is a general anaesthetic. Depending on the amount of fatty tissue to be absorbed and the location of the injection, the procedure takes 1-2 hours. Both the donor zone and the zone to be filled are treated with an anaesthetic, as already explained in the chapter “Fat extraction”, which also prevents bleeding.

Step 2: Liposuction/Fat removal

The grease is extracted at the point of collection with specially developed cannulas. The fat is carefully removed; it should be damaged as little as possible, because the fat cells taken must heal at the recipient’s place. The abdominal region, waist and thigh inner sides are the most common donor zones.

 

Step 3: Processing

The fat extracted is purified from the liquid portion by centrifuging.

Step 4: Transplantation

As with the treatment with fillers (hyaluronic acid), the own fat is injected into the skin at the desired places or just below it. Small portions of adipose tissue are always placed, which are connected to the vascular system and grow in within four days. The surrounding tissue ensures that the transplanted fat cells receive sufficient oxygen and food to grow optimally.

Consequences are swelling and hematoma. These last wipe 7 and 10 days. Patients are theoretically able to socialise immediately, realistically after 3-4 days. Antibiotics and decongestant medications are recommended.

In general, complications are rare in this treatment. The own fat is the body’s own material, which is 100% biocompatible. Hypersensitivity tests are not necessary. Furthermore, scars, infections, knot formation, hardening, fatty tissue necrosis, vascular thrombosis/embolism and repeated side differences (asymmetries) may occur.

What customers say about Dr. Julia Cordin

After my 2 pregnancies, my C-Cup had shrunk to an A-cup. Since the breast augmentation at Dr. Cordin I feel comfortable again and am really happy. That was the best decision!

Natasha, 34 years - Breast augmentation with silicone implants

I have a completely new body feeling and can now enjoy my sexuality again. Thank you also for the great support and perfect advice in advance!

Lilly, 54 years - self-fat-tranfer outer labia

Finally, I no longer have to use a bra insert to balance my smaller left breast. In the first-ever-beautiful clinic, the right breast was reduced and adapted to the left. It’s become really great. Have taken care of me really well and felt comfortable with you! Thank you.

Anna, 21 years - Matching breast surgery for breast assymetry

The disturbing fat pads at my problem areas are hardly there anymore. The operation gave me a kick, now finally to make more movement and look at me.

Conny, 43 years - liposuction abdomen, waist and thigh
