Also known as fat grafting and fat injection, fat grafting refers to transferring fat from one part of your body to another to give it a needed boost! Let's get into the fat grafting details for breast augmentation, buttock enhancement, facial revolumisation and hand rejuvenation. Read on to find out all about this versatile cosmetic treatment that has given many around the world results that they love!
According to Dr Ivan Puah, he believes fat grafting is more than just a surgical procedure! It is also a work of art. Achieving sage and natural results requires a doctor that has a great perception of art, attention to detail, and a thorough understanding of the face and body anatomy, on top of years of experience. They have to be knowledgeable about the amount of fat that needs to be extracted, from where, and into where, with the right techniques of injection.
Dr Ivan Puah believes that fat grafting treatments involve 30% science, and 70% art, similarly to every other fat and body sculpting and enhancing treatment. Just like a sculptor uses his artistic training to mould material into an art form, he uses his artistic sense and scientific expertise in using modern technology to shape the face and body.
In Singapore, only doctors who are certified with a liposuction license can perform fat grafting procedures. Doctors who perform the treatment need to be highly trained and experienced, including having good techniques. Beauty Insider advises you to choose a doctor who is not only qualified but well-trained as well, with years of experience in body sculpting, liposuction, as well as body enhancement procedures that can speak for their skills. Your results are at their mercy, so make sure you’re making the right choice when it comes to the doctor!
Fat grafting is a popular cosmetic surgery that is desired by many for its versatility and proven results. In Singapore, there are only a handful of clinics that offer fat grafting procedures. Amaris B. Clinic is one of them! Dr Ivan Puah, the clinic’s medical director has been performing fat grafting procedures since 2008. The procedure begins with the removal of unwanted body fat from a certain area of the body using VASER Lipo, which is a modern and improved form of liposuction.
Dr Ivan Puah has performed many breast enhancement procedures in Singapore. From post-breastfeeding mothers who are concerned with saggy, and drooping breasts, to women with smaller breasts who’d like their breasts enhanced in size, they’ve all experienced the benefits of fat grafting.
Buttock augmentation is also quite popular. It helps with adding volume and smoothening out textures on the buttocks. It works the same as breast enhancement, which is free of risks of ruptures or leaks because of the use of zero implants during the procedure.
Return the youth to your hands with fat grafting! Wrinkles and signs of ageing on the hands often give away our age or for some, make them look older than their age. “Your hands lose volume and elasticity over time, which means you can develop a ‘skeletal’ and ‘translucent’ appearance with skin wrinkling as you age,” says Dr Puah.
As we age, the collagen and volume in our skin tissue decline. At Amaris B. Clinic, ADR-C Facial Enhancement is used, replacing volume loss, lifting facial projections, and achieving skin rejuvenation, to restore a youthful facial appearance.
“Apart from being a solution to counter signs of ageing, one other reason for the rise of facial fat grafting is the presence of social media, facial augmenting apps and filters. Many of my patients want smoother skin and enhanced facial features such as cheeks, chin and temples, which are achievable with facial fat grafting,” Dr Puah adds.
Fat grafting procedures are like getting a two-for-one deal! Add volume to your desired area while removing fats from your “problem area” at the same time.
On top of that, fat grafting allows you to avoid fillers or implants and uses your natural body fat instead! Reusing your own fat allows you to avoid foreign substances from being inserted into your body such as silicone breast implants. The chances of rejection or an allergic reaction is low to none and the results are oh-so-natural!
With a retention rate of 70 to 75%, the results of fat grafting are permanent. Research has found that fat tissue can be easily obtained as well as it is biocompatible, which shows that it does no harm to the living tissues.
The costs for fat grafting in Singapore varies based on practices, experience, area of treatment, and complexity of the procedure. The experience of the doctor who performs the procedure plays a big role in the costs of the treatment. More experienced doctors would have performed more complex cases and correction surgeries. Experience comes with greater skills and expertise, hence that is what you are paying for.
