Autologous Fat Transfer is a plastic surgery method, during which the body’s own fat tissues are transplanted from a certain place to another for volume increasing or rejuvenation.
Modern techniques allow us to transfer a large amount of fat with 50-70% tissue survival rate. Besides Lip Augmentation and Facial Anti-Wrinkle Treatment it is appropriate for other body areas as well, such as minor Breast Augmentation or sculpturing the calves or buttocks. All of these are available in our clinic.
The experimental period took more than 15 years in American, Japanese and European clinics. Doctors started to use fat tissues and connective tissue stem cells from Liposuction for Breast Augmentation.
The research required further experiments. Finally, in 2009, enough evidence accumulated with imaging techniques and follow-up results to advise Breast Augmentation with Lipotransfer to more patients. A medical congress in the US also confirmed its safety.
Nowadays, we have a detailed analysis of research data and high-quality medical evidence that Breast Augmentation With Autologous Fat Transfer carries no more risk than other Breast Augmentation procedures.
The assumption has not been confirmed either, that stem cells and growth factors in the transplanted fat may play a role in the development of breast cancer, and fat tissue calcification causes no trouble for experienced radiologists during certain examinations.
I m very interested in fat transfer breast augmentation. i have small breast but i dont want something dramatic just want them to be little bit bigger to match my body. But i have a slim body type but got fat on thigh and belly which i want to lose at the same time. i m wondering if there is a restriction for fat transfer like maybe i dont have enough fat? And i have a 1cm fibroid in my breast can you still have fat transfer? How long it takes to get back to work in a office? I'm currenly in UK. i want to travel to there to get this done. i m wondering how much for that in total roughly. any package for customers like this? I guess so many people from UK would travel there to do surgery cos the price in UK is too expensive. it is a long way to travel there so i want to make everything clear before i go so i have plenty of questions to ask. looking forward to your reply. Thanks, Tess

Dear Doctor Pataki,
Thank you for your answer.
I've now shortlisted a couple of praticians after a few checks, and have a few more questions before getting to my final decision.
- How many facial fat transfers have you performed? On males?
- do you centrifuge the fat?
- what quantity do you reinject per droplet?
- do you have any pictures of your work?
- Could you book an initial consultation for this procedure?
- Are you available in january for this procedure?
Thanks in advance for your answer,

Dear dr. Pataki,
Please supply me with information on fat grafting which is used for volume restoration. I am considering both methods – hyaluronic acid and fat. Where do you take the fat from and what is its take rate.

I'm a 31 y/o male who has lost a lot of volume in my face.
I'll be living in Budapest as of September, and look for a surgeon to perform either hyaluronic or i heard about autologous facial fat transfer too and i am more interested in it.
Do you perform both procedure? If yes, how do you perform it? Do you have pictures of patients 3/6 months postop? What is the different?
Thanks in advance for your answer. Christine

Dear Dr. Pataki
I'd like to augment my calves through a non-invasive intervention, if possible. In particular, I'd be interest in a lipofilling procedure. I will in Budapest during the first two weeks in August, but for the first seven days I will be busy with a dance course. I will then be ready to do the surgery since 15th August. Can I know how many days are necessary to recover? Photos of the area of interest are attached. Thank you.

Hello dr. Pataki,
I have heard back form Manka, my friend and she is curious about what the Premium plastic surgery clinic suggested, the fat grafting. Please find her questions below:
Is it the same than fat injections ? How is that procedure? What area they take it from? What is the suggested recovery time?
I have notice that my upper lip is going downward. Could injecting a little bit of fat in my cheeks lift my smile?
Could I have this done this summer on it's own?
I thought to fill the lines on my forehead also, perhaps the same method would work?
And, could she have an appointment for the last week of July for a consultation?
thank you for your help!

Dear Dr. Pataki,
I have one child at present, and we are planning to have another with my husband. The pregnancy has worn down my body. I was toxaemic, I put on 30 kg, from which I have lost 34 kg during the lactation (I have nursed my child for one year and I had a Caesarian section). My breasts have become soft and a little sagging, my tummy looks like ugly and some fat has remained there. I would like to know whether there is any method for transfering the adipose tissues from my belly to my breasts, while making the tummy tighter and the breast harder? I would like to get myself overhauled (of course after the second baby), but I have a horror of extraneous matters, like silicone implants.
Thank you for your help in advance!

I was operated because of breast cancer 10 years ago. Unfortunately my breast had to be completely excenterated. An adjustable breast implant was inserted under the muscle, but over the years it has creased. I put on some weight because I was reached by menopause therefore the difference between my breasts has become significant. I always have to stuff my bra with textile insertions to make my breasts look alike to a certain degree.
My question is: is there any way of reconstructing my breast from my own tissues?
I look forward to your answer, which I thank you in advance!
