What happens during the fat transfer to face procedure?

Three things happen during the fat transfer to face procedure

+ Fat is taken from elsewhere by liposuction. This could be anywhere, but for convenience is often the abdomen or thighs and most commonly under local anaesthesia or sedation.
+ The fat is then processed by filtration and centrifuge spinning and put into small syringes for injection
+ The fat is then injected into the face

It is possible to combine this treatment with innovative rejuvenative stem cell treatments. Fat contains Stem Cells and their close relatives, Mesenchymal Stromal Cells (MSC) which enhance fat transfer and improve skin and scar quality.

These can be extracted in the Cadogan Clinic from the fat and added to supercharge the fat to be transferred. Alternatively, they can be used on its own as a stem cells suspension or MSC enriched Nanofat.

When combined with more comprehensive liposuction, the donor site can be sculpted and contoured during the same procedure.
