Fat Transfer for Face London
Fat transfer for face procedures are available in London through Dominic Bray – an acclaimed plastic surgeon who specialises wholly in treatments for the face and neck.
When applied with skill, fat transfer to face can be a means of facial contouring that makes a profound impact. It can address signs of ageing and add volume to areas where this is lacking – whether this is through ageing, genetics or other cause.
The procedure is often accompanied by other treatments and surgery so as to address numerous signs of ageing, letting your natural beauty shine through as you look refreshed, more youthful and energised, but still very much yourself.
In this page, we will provide some key information relating to fat transfer to face and also answer some of the common queries.
We will also talk a little about Dominic Bray – a surgeon considered by many to be the finest in both London and the UK for facial procedures.
Fat Transfer to Face Suitability
To assess suitability, Dominic Bray always holds detailed consultations, these are your opportunity to talk and for him to listen.
Regardless of why someone contacted the clinic, it is essential that we listen to what the prospective patient is hoping to achieve, what the areas of concern are. Only by taking this holistic view can Dominic then recommend what he truly believes to be the best course of action.
Fat transfer to face may be the most suitable procedure, or it may be that alternatives would be more suitable. Dominic will take the time to talk you through these options and suggest a plan of best action derived from his decades of relevant experience.
A patient’s complete medical history would be factored in and any procedure or surgery only ever considered when it is truly in a person’s best interests.
Benefits of Fat Transfer to Face
Grafting fat from the body to be used elsewhere is a procedure that has now been used for some time. It has long since been popular in options such as the ‘Mummy Makeover’ whereby fat is taken from the abdomen and used to enhance the breasts – the name of the procedure a nod to the fact that many women wish to regain their former figure post-pregnancy.
Initially, fat transfer to the face was only used in the lips and nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines) but it is now commonly used in the cheeks, temples, orbits and brow.
It is a procedure that produces the profound change sought, the fat can be carefully used by the surgeon to create just the level of volume and enhancement.
Modern techniques also mean that the graft is long-lasting, this is a change that will last. Fat survival is now much more certain than was once the case, this because of the methods used to graft the fat and then transplant it as microdroplets.
The obvious benefit is to appearance, treating areas of concern. It may be that fat transfer alone creates the change that is wanted, or it may be that it is used in combination with other treatments.
Dominic Bray’s skill is such that the results make a superb difference and yet look entirely natural, with none of the obvious look of ‘work having been done’.
However, the results can also improve self-confidence and self-esteem. We all like to look our best and any concerns can play on our minds, especially when we may be worried about visible signs of ageing.
This can be the true benefit of a procedure such as fat transfer to the face and the change is wonderful to see – the change in a person’s demeanour, their confidence and their happiness.
Post surgery and recovery, patients typically feel so much more confident, this impacting work, relationships and all areas of their life.
Results from Fat Transfer to Face
Rather than spending hundreds of words describing results, we believe it is far more useful to show them through fair before and after images.
On site, we have a thorough before and after gallery, here you can filter to see patients by the treatment they had and also their sex and age.
Results are permanent in that the impact will carry on, but ageing will still occur from this new benchmark.
Fat Transfer Procedure
All facial contouring procedures are performed as day cases under local anaesthetic at our CQC registered independent hospital Azora.
Dominic Bray’s approaches also help to reduce recovery time, both in the short term and then longer – post-surgery, you can literally walk to the recovery room, with none of the awful grogginess of coming round from general anaesthetic.
Recovery from Fat Transfer
Fat transfer will cause some swelling to the face, this will last a few days but is rarely painful.
Recovery typically only takes a couple of weeks, after which you can return to work and much of your usual schedule.
Pain can be managed through standard painkillers while ice packs can help mitigate any swelling.
Dominic Bray remains in constant contact with his patients and checks on their progress at every stage, as well as holding regular follow-up appointments, either in person or remotely as preferred.
How Dominic Bray Differs
There are many plastic surgeons so why consider Dominic Bray?
His results are stunning, as you can see from the before and after image gallery.
These results are achieved because Dominic specialises, whereas many cosmetic surgeons are allrounders and perform a huge range of procedures on all parts of the body, he has chosen to specialise and dedicate himself to facial and neck surgery.
As a result, everything he does is geared towards procedures such as neck lifts, from his skills, through to the team he works with and even the facility whereby you would undergo surgery .
Patients benefit from a private, dedicated hospital set up by Dominic rather than leased space in a large private hospital.
