Fat Reduction & Transfer

Fat reduction uses liposuction to slim and reshape specific areas of body removing excess fat deposits, improving your body contours and proportion and it enhances your self-image. Fat transfer, also called fat grafting or fat injections is a procedure that uses a person’s own fat to fill in irregularities and grooves of the body.

Today, many people make exercise and diet to slim and remove areas of fat in their body but sometimes excess fat maybe left no matter how much you make exercise or diet. Even if those areas which became slimmer need to be reshaped after fat loss.

Liposuction surgery which is also know as fat removal surgery removes those  areas of excess fat to improve contour and proportion of your body and enhances your view with a slimmer and reshaped body parts. Do not forget, liposuction is not a treatment for obesity or it is not a tool for quick weight loss.

Liposuction or fat removal surgery is performed either under general anaesthetic or under local anaesthetic with sedation, and is often treated as a day case, meaning you will not have to stay in hospital overnight.

The procedure usually takes between one and two hours to complete depending on the area being treated and how much fat is being removed. Your surgeon will make a small incision in the area being treated before inserting a thin plastic tube called a cannula. The other end of this cannula is attached to a powerful vacuum device which removes the fat quickly and efficiently.

Certain areas of body suits for fat transfer:

*Face (Wrinkles, folds, cheekbones, cheeks and chin.


Liposuction surgery can reduce local fat deposits of arms, thighs, hips and buttocks, abdomen, knees, chest area, cheeks, chin and neck, calves and ankles. Liposuction can also performed with other plastic surgeries such as facelift, breast reduction or tummy tuck.

*Increases your self-confidence

*Motivates to have healthier lifestyle

If you are bothered by excess fat deposits – located anywhere on your body – that don’t respond to diet or exercise, if you have average or slightly above-average weight, if you are in good health and have positive outlook about body contouring, liposuction may be right for you.

Don’t forget that liposuction is not an effective treatment for patients with cellulite (the dimpled skin that typically appears on the thighs, hips and buttocks) or loose, saggy skin.
