The fat transfer procedure with body-jet replaces out dated liposuction
With traditional liposuction treatments being used less thanks to more effective and safer alternatives, it’s no surprise there has been a rise in patients seeking a fat transfer procedure that offers maximum results with minimal downtime, compared to traditional fat removal surgery.
Mr Gary Ross is leading the way for patients seeking cosmetic procedures, such as mummy makeovers, by offering an alternative procedure that’s both safer and more efficient. Not only that, the harvested fat can be transferred to another part of the body to improve volume or body contours.
Mr Ross noticed the trend shifting from fat removal surgery to fat transfer in the latter part of 2017, and believes 2018 will also be the year we see patients swap silicone implants for volumising areas, such as the breasts or buttocks, with fat instead.
Specialising in body rejuvenation surgery and mummy makeover procedures, the Manchester plastic surgeon uses the body-jet device to take fat from one area of a patient’s body and reintroduce it to another part of the body or face that requires volume.
Unlike traditional forms of fat removal surgery that are often unreliable and painful, the body-jet technology uses the gentle power of water to contour the body during the fat transfer procedure. Fat can be removed in a more gentle way, allowing for a less invasive and safer autologous fat transfer treatment for both men and women.
For those seeking breast enhancement, body-jet can provide a natural boost to volume, in some cases eliminating the need for silicone implants. A fat transfer procedure that’s leading the way in the UK, this is a remarkable step forward for the industry, and one that’s likely to be big news during the next 12 months.
A BAAPS and BAPRAS member, Mr Ross was one of the first medical professionals in England to offer the water-assisted fat transfer procedure, and believes scores of patients will start seeking more natural ways to enhance their bodies.
“Last year we saw a larger focus on the approach that less is more with regards to body contouring and enhancement. There’s no doubt in my mind this will also be a focus during 2018 and beyond. Patient safety is, rightly, the main priority now for most plastic surgeons, and this along with quicker healing times ensures procedures like fat transfer will be popular in many cosmetic clinics,” Mr. Ross says.
Mr Ross believes this shift in demand may be down to the change in celebrity culture, with less women seeking Kardashian proportions in favour of a more natural appearance. The fake look is most definitely on the decline, Mr Ross points out.
body-jet fat transfer is making waves because the treatment is versatile and the results are impressive. One of the benefits of offering body-jet is how much can actually be done without implants in terms of volume improvement. Silicone implants have their place, and fat transfer isn’t suitable for everyone, but this is modern way to boost volume to an area without place foreign objects into the body, which can of course cause some patients complications.
Undergoing body-jet fat transfer is less invasive than traditional lipo techniques, leading to speedier recovery times and patient satisfaction. Using the body-jet, liposuction and/or fat transfer can be performed in a safe, effective and easy way, that causes much less trauma to the area being treated.
“We are doing remarkable things with body-jet and I know 2018 is going to be the year patients embrace this safer cosmetic procedure to regain or boost volume,” Mr. Ross concludes.
