From thighs to face: Is the new ‘fat transfer filler’ the natural answer to surgery?

July 2020

Exclusive: a revolutionary new ‘fat transfer’ filler is set to change the face of cosmetic procedures for the better, says leading surgeon. Annabel Jones, Beauty Editor at Large interviews Mr Olivier Amar.

Enter, Uvence, the first quality controlled fat transfer facial injection created by leading body contouring expert and plastic surgeon, Dr. Olivier Amar. ‘Dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid which is present in our own skin. This misleads people into thinking fillers are natural, but they are not, they are made in a factory.’ 

He warns, ‘if someone starts having dermal filler regularly in their twenties, by the time they are 50, they will have had a room full of filler in their face. Surgeons are starting to see more and more complications from over-filling or poor techniques, which results in lumps under the skin, as well as a host of other complications in the long term.’

As a third generation surgeon who already specialises in fat transfer procedures for the body, Dr. Amar was determined to refine the process for the face, in order to achieve an alternative to filler that is 100% natural. And it appears he is onto something as Uvence has already accrued a healthy waitlist of eager patients waiting for treatments to resume post-lockdown.
