How is fat grafting performed, and what is the recovery and down time like?

Liposuction is performed to areas of unwanted fats such as ones’ hips, abdomen, thighs (inner and outer), and arms. The unwanted fat is collected and will go through a centrifugation process to separate and remove unwanted components such as blood, water or oil. The remaining fat is then collected and injected to areas such as smile lines, cheeks, lips, dorsum of the hands, breasts and butt. This process is known as fat grafting. It depends on which area we are grafting the fat and one example commonly requested is the buttocks.

What is the recovery process and downtime like after liposuction in Singapore?

thanks for your question! The recovery process and downtime will depend on how extensive the liposuction is and on the individual. Recovery process for full circumferential liposuction If you undergo a full circumferential liposuction (such as liposuction of the whole back, frontal abdomen, hips, outer thighs and inner thighs), the recovery will be slightly longer. The surgery time for such can go up to 4 to 5 hours, done under General Anesthesia in the hospital. A minimum of 1 night stay is recommended.
