The Beauty of Natural Enhancement.
In today’s world, where physical appearance is becoming increasingly important, everyone is looking for different ways to enhance their looks. Some opt for surgical procedures, while others prefer non-surgical ways to achieve the same results. One such non-surgical option that is gaining immense popularity among people is fat injections. Also known as autologous fat grafting, it is a cosmetic procedure that involves injecting a person’s own fat into specific areas of the face or body to enhance their appearance.
Fat injections have been in use for several decades, with early applications primarily for reconstructive surgery. However, in recent years, the procedure has become increasingly popular for cosmetic purposes. Natural enhancement has become more prevalent, and people are drawn to the idea of using their own fat to achieve a more youthful, fuller appearance.
Apart from being a natural way to enhance one’s looks, fat injections have several other benefits. There is no risk of rejection since the body recognizes the injected fat as its own.
However did you know that if not cared for properly, you can expect around 50% of the fat that is injected to die and then be expelled by your body?
This creates a greater load on your lymphatic system which can lead to increased risk of healing complications.
There is an answer!
When you’ve had a fat transfer procedure such as a BBL or in your breast (lipomodelling/ lipofilling) then this fat dies because there isn’t sufficient blood supply in the area to support this quantity of new fat.
So then this fat dies (necrosis) and is filtered into your lymphatic system, which is already overloaded due to the swelling from your surgery — your lymphatic system is the waste disposal for your body.

What’s the solution to fat injections dying?
Our post fat transfer aftercare package does everything.
You have MLD (Lymphatic massage) to speed up the time your body takes to expel waste. This naturally allows for more blood to get into the area that was previously blocked by this waste and so you heal faster. But that is only the start.
You will also have PRF treatment. This is where we draw your own blood and separate out the healing properties from the red blood cells and apply them to the fat transfer area. This means that we’re in effect, adding more blood back to the area that is starved. And as blood is the giver of life, more of your fat will survive. This means a better finish, less movement in the fat and less necrosis (dead fat). See below.
In turn, that means you have less swelling, and that means you need fewer MLD massages.
Once we’ve done this, you will also have the option for red light therapy to further speed up your healing process by stimulating your blood to move more, so that your natural supply is more ‘awake’.

Best fat transfer surgeons UK
There has been a trend of people going abroad to get their BBL (Brazilian Butt lift/ Buttocks/ Bum) and other fat injections/ fat transfers. This has typically been because it was illegal in the UK because of safety issues.
However, if you’re not particularly enamoured with going abroad to places such as Turkey, Poland and Brazil for your fat transfer, then UK surgeons can now do this safely and legally. We know many surgeons in London, Birmingham and Manchester, so if you would like to choose a good one, then read our post on how to choose the right surgeon for you. We personally have been in surgery with Dr Omar Tillo whilst he was doing a new, safer method of BBL with ultrasound and can wholeheartedly attest to his professionalism and safety.
Fat transfer surgery cost
Fat transfer surgery cost in India or Turkey will be different to the fat transfer cost UK. And then other variables will be where and how much work you are having. Fat transfer surgery cost varies wildly, and it’s about getting a price that you feel is fair for you with a surgeon who you respect and trust.
For instance, breast fat transfer cost UK will be different to the exact same job in South Africa. But it will also be different based on how much fat you need removing and then re-injecting and also the shape of your breasts. In the same way breast implants work, no augmentation will be exactly the same even between the same patients’ breasts.
It’s these variables that affect your cost.
What we’d say is if you have gone to all this trouble to get fat injections to augment an area on your body, then why waste that fat transfer by letting it die? Unnecessarily.
However, remember the cost doesn’t stop until we finished all your aftercare and you are out of the other end.
Besides the aftercare we discuss above, you will also need a good quality compression garment. Usually, this will need to be in different sizes as you lose fluid (swelling) during your first few weeks of healing.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) treatments are both regenerative procedures that use a patient’s own blood components to promote healing and tissue rejuvenation. While there is some overlap in the contraindications for both treatments, PRP may be a more suitable option for individuals who are not eligible for PRF due to specific conditions. Here are some scenarios where PRP might be preferred over PRF:
- Blood Disorders: PRP may be a safer option for individuals with mild to moderate blood clotting disorders or bleeding disorders. PRP treatments involve concentrating platelets from the blood, which can still provide some regenerative benefits while minimizing the risk of excessive bleeding.
- Pregnancy and Breastfeeding: While both PRP and PRF may be best avoided during pregnancy and breastfeeding, PRP might be considered as a potentially safer option due to its simpler preparation process and reduced manipulation of blood components.
- Autoimmune Disorders: PRP might be chosen over PRF for individuals with autoimmune disorders, as the simpler preparation of PRP may lead to fewer immune system interactions and complications.
- Certain Skin Conditions: Individuals with less severe skin conditions, such as mild eczema or psoriasis, might be considered for PRP treatments, as these conditions may have a lower risk of interacting negatively with the treatment compared to PRF.
It’s important to note that the suitability of PRP or PRF treatments depends on individual health factors and medical history. A thorough consultation with a qualified healthcare provider or medical professional is essential to determine the most appropriate treatment option for each individual.
Additionally, even though PRP might be considered in certain scenarios where PRF is not recommended, there can still be situations where both treatments are contraindicated. As always, consulting with a medical expert is crucial for making informed decisions about regenerative treatments and their potential benefits and risks.
