Fat transfer is a very effective way of restoring a youthful appearance to the face by adding volume to the mid-face and chin that can become hollow and lifeless as we age. Fat transfer has helped countless patients regain their confidence in the appearance of their face.
Fat transfer is an increasingly popular alternative to fillers and implants since it makes use of your body’s own fat stores in order to add volume to the face. The fat that’s used for facial fat transfer procedures is typically taken from the abdomen and thighs although it can be taken from other areas of the body too.
The process involves taking the fat from the donor areas and carefully injecting it into the areas of the face where more volume is desired. The procedure is minimally invasive and is typically performed in less than 2 hours.

Dr Constantine’s Philosophy
on Fat Transfer
Although fat transfer is not a hugely complicated procedure, I approach it with great care and ensure that every patient I treat is aware of the results they can expect to achieve. I find this approach results in patients that are very satisfied and realistic about the final result.
What kind of results should I expect?
You will be able to see the results immediately although final judgment should be reserved until all the swelling has subsided. In the vast majority of cases, swelling has completely disappeared in 2 weeks.All patients react differently to the procedure but it’s not unusual for the results to last for many years.
If you would like to have a fat transfer procedure carried out by Dr Constantine then the first step is to book a consultation. This is where you’ll have the chance to have any questions answered and the doctor will explain exactly what the procedure entails.
