Fat Transfer Gone Wrong

When Negligence Occurs During or After Fat Transfers for Face, Buttocks, Hands and Breasts, Call Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors.

Fat transfer cosmetic surgery attempts to create a permanent filler effect by transferring fat from more corpulent parts of the body like the flanks, stomach or thighs to areas like the face, buttocks, hands and breasts.

Fat transfer surgery is made up of two separate procedures. The first is a type of liposuction where fat is harvested from the donor area via a low pressure suctioning technique. This suctioned out fat is then filtered using a centrifuge to remove any unhealthy fat tissue. The second part of the fat transfer treatment sees the cosmetic surgeon using small incisions to re-inject the now purified fat into the areas of treatment.

Unfortunately, however, mistakes are sometimes made during fat transfer surgery and it can go badly wrong. If this has happened to you, speak to Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors today on 0800 634 0285 or request a call back from one of our dedicated fat transfer negligence solicitors to start your claim for compensation when your fat transfer has gone wrong.

Face Fat Transfer

Facial fat transfer targets creases in the face like laugh lines, smile lines, and crow’s-feet. Fat transfer also is used by cosmetic surgeons to tackle acne scars or sunken areas of the face and cheeks. For face fat transfers, fat is removed using a procedure similar to liposuction from the abdomen, inner thigh or buttocks and then filtered to remove any unhealthy fat tissue. The cosmetic surgeon then uses stab incisions to re-inject this fat into the areas of the face which have lost volume.

Following a face fat transfer gone wrong, you need expert advice on what to do next. Speak to Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors on 0800 634 0285 for a free consultation on how you can make a claim for fat transfer compensation.

Breast Fat Transfer

A fat transfer for the breasts is performed to enhance a patient’s breast shape and size for breast reconstruction or breast enlargement reasons. Using a low pressure liposuction technique fat is taken from the patient’s thighs, belly or buttocks before being processed into liquid. Hundreds of tiny droplets of this filtered fat is then injected into the breast site. If the breast fat transfer doesn’t go wrong then the new fat is incorporated into the existing fat tissue and the patient’s breasts are enlarged.

If your breast fat transfer has unfortunately gone wrong due to a negligent cosmetic surgeon then talk to us on 0800 634 0285 or request a call back from one of our expert fat transfer solicitors.

Hands Fat Transfer

As people age their skin thins and the veins, tendons and bones in the hand are more exposed and hand fat transfer tries to improve the hand’s skin texture and volume. In this type of fat transfer, fat is removed from the patient’s abdomen or thighs and re-injected into the back of the hands.

Talk to Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors on 0800 634 0285 for expert advice on how to make a successful claim when your hand fat transfer has gone wrong.

Autologous Fat Transfer

Autologous fat transfer, often called a ‘Brazilian butt lift’, attempts to reshape or enhance a patient’s buttocks following weight gain, weight loss or pregnancy or for purely aesthetic reasons. Autologous fat is fat-derived adult stem cells re-introduced into the same body and this type of fat transfer takes surplus fat from a patient’s flanks, stomach or thighs before micro-fat transfers or autologous grafts are then injected back into the buttocks through a small incision as hundreds of tiny individual droplets.

If your autologous fat transfer has gone wrong, call Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors today on 0800 634 0285 today for advice on how to make a claim for compensation.

How your Fat Transfer Can Go Wrong

In the hours following a fat transfer treatment, the patient may stay in the cosmetic clinic or surgery to confirm that there is no excessive swelling. The swelling and bruising caused to the fat treatment area should subside after a couple of weeks if the fat transfer has been successful. After a fat transfer significant amounts of fat may be absorbed by the body so further treatment may sometimes be required to achieve the result the patient is looking for.

When fat transfer treatment, whether it’s for the face, breast, hands or buttocks, doesn’t achieve the results the patient has been promised, it may be on account of errors made by the cosmetic surgeon or clinic. If that is the case then cosmetic surgery negligence may have occurred during or after the fat transfer procedure. Complications that may indicate a fat transfer going wrong include the following:

  • Asymmetry disfigurement where the fat transfer leaves the skin area unequal in shape
  • Fat necrosis with unsightly lumps under the skin
  • Overfill, where too much fat is injected into the treatment area

We may be able to assist you in making a claim for financial compensation if you have been affected by any of these indications of negligence during or after a fat transfer surgery. You should also talk to us if you have been affected by any other symptoms following your fat transfer treatment which you think could point to cosmetic surgery gone wrong.
