During your consultation with Mr Juling Ong will assess the degree of volume loss in the face and also the potential donor sites and the volume of fat that will need to be taken to achieve the results you are hoping for.
Donor sites typically are the abdomen, flanks and outer and inner thighs. Approximately twice the volume of fat has to be harvested as half its volume is lost during the purifying process. Although there are minimal side effects, these will be discussed in full during the consultation.
The fat is removed from the donor area via liposuction and then prepared in a centrifuge. This separates out any blood and oily fluids, leaving the purest form of fat that can then by injected into the face.
Mr Juling Ong will recontour the face with the fat, precisely transplanting the cells in very thin layers to help improve the smoothness and quality of the final result. The procedure is performed as a day case procedure and recovery is usually very quick.
