Preparing for a Fat Transfer Procedure at Toronto Cosmetic Clinic
Preparing for the fat transfer procedure at Toronto Cosmetic Clinic is not unlike preparing for our other cosmetic procedures. There are various things one needs to consider in preparation for the procedure itself. These steps primarily have to do with ensuring one's own general health and well-being. Also, please note that they are not necessarily exclusive to the fat transfer procedure itself.
One consideration that puts most at ease is the nature of the procedure itself. Regardless of the safety of injectable fillers and in order to achieve those desired effects, the filler itself must be injected into the patient's body. In contrast, the fat transfer procedure uses part of the body (i.e. the fat) in order to improve the appearance of another part of the body, for example the face. In this sense, it's a 100% natural way to get rid of those wrinkles.
General Health Tips
Like preparing for the breast augmentation procedure, one may need to make some lifestyle adjustments prior to the procedure. This is especially important for those who may be combining their fat transfer with other procedures, like liposuction or a tummy tuck.
Patients should not smoke for a few weeks prior to and after the fat transfer procedure at Toronto Cosmetic Clinic, as it is essential to the speed of one's recovery after the procedure. This is because one of the effects of smoking is hindering the body's ability to heal.
Eat properly and avoid excessive and/or overly stringent dieting a few weeks prior to and after the procedure. In order for the procedure to be successful, one's body needs to have a sufficient amount of fat in the target area. Otherwise, the required amount of fat may not be safely removed.
Limit or avoid the consumption of alcohol, before and after the procedure. Again, like smoking, the consumption of alcohol can negatively affect the body's ability to recover.
In the vast majority of cases, a local anesthetic is used for the procedure. This is for both the removal and injection of one's fat. However, there may be some health and/or medical conditions which may require otherwise. This is especially the case for individuals who may be combining their fat transfer with another procedure.
The Fat Transfer Consultation at Toronto Cosmetic Clinic
Regardless of the type of anesthetic used, an initial consultation at Toronto Cosmetic Clinic is extremely important. This is not only for the physician to determine the suitability of the procedure; it is also to ensure that the fat transfer procedure is the right cosmetic surgical treatment for you.
