All You Need To Know Before You Go For A Fat Transfer Procedure in Singapore

August 13, 2021

Also known as fat transfer 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 and much-loved cosmetic treatment!

Fat Grafting 101

The concentrated fat is filled into syringes.

Fat grafting is a popular cosmetic surgery many desire for its versatility and proven results. In Singapore, only a handful of clinics 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 removing unwanted body fat from a specific body area using a modern liposuction technique.

Then, fat tissues are separated before being reinjected into the area of the body that needs a boost. The extracted fat tissues are filled into areas for a fuller look and a smooth contour. This procedure has zero risk of rejection commonly associated with implants because of the use of the patient’s fat.

Fat Grafting For Breast Enlargement & Buttock Augmentation

The concentrated fat is then slowly and carefully injected into areas of the body where it’s needed via small needles or cannulas.

Dr Ivan Puah has performed many breast enhancement procedures in Singapore. From post-breastfeeding mothers 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, free of risks of ruptures or leaks because of zero implants during the procedure.

Fat Grafting For Hands

Return 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.

In Europe, fat grafting for the hands is a popular treatment. According to Dr Ivan Puah, it is gaining popularity in Asia because of its effectiveness.

Fat Grafting for The Face

As we age, the collagen and volume in our skin tissue decline. At Amaris B. Clinic, ADR-C Facial Enhancement is used to replace volume loss, lift facial projections, and achieve 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 enhanced facial features such as cheeks, chin, and temples, which are achievable with facial fat grafting,” Dr Puah adds.

Why Choose Fat Grafting?

Fat grafting procedures are like getting a two-for-one deal! Add volume to your desired area while removing fats from your “problem area” simultaneously.

On top of that, fat grafting allows you to avoid fillers or implants and uses your natural body fat instead! The chances of rejection or an allergic reaction are none, as fat is biocompatible, and the results are oh-so-natural! With a retention rate of 70 to 75%, the results of fat grafting are long-lasting.

Fat Grafting Cost In Singapore

The costs for fat grafting in Singapore vary based on practices, experience, treatment area, and procedure complexity. The doctor's experience and skills play a significant role in your results. Your results are at their mercy, so make sure you make the right choice for the doctor!

Fat Grafting Doctor in Singapore

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 with 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 know the amount of fat that needs to be extracted, from where, and into where, with the proper injection techniques.

Dr Ivan Puah believes that fat grafting treatments involve 30% science and 70% art, similar 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 to shape the face and body.

Only doctors certified with a liposuction license can perform fat grafting procedures in Singapore. Doctors who perform the treatment must be trained and experienced, including good techniques.

Where to go for fat grafting in Singapore?

Dr Ivan Puah has over 17 years of surgical experience in liposuction and body enhancement procedures. He is trained in Vaser liposuction, Laserlipolysis (Laser Liposuction), tumescent liposuction, syringe liposculpture and gynecomastia surgery.

Your fat grafting procedure will be carried out by Dr Ivan Puah and assisted by his skilled surgical team in their MOH-accredited operating theatre. Their anaesthesiologist will ensure you’re comfortable, relaxed, and safe under their twilight sedation.
