Mr Olivier Amar says: “My patients often tell me they dream of turning back the clock on their skin. Super enriched fat transfer with SVF stem cells uses the power of your own natural stem cells to deeply repair and rejuvenate skin, healing it from within. It leaves skin younger, smoother, healthier and more radiant. And it is 100% natural, so you can have the effect of a filler without any foreign materials inside your body.”
WHAT IS SUPER ENRICHED FAT TRANSFER WITH SVF STEM CELLS?
Super enriched fat transfer with SVF stem cells is a unique, personalised injectable skin treatment derived from your own fat tissue. By enriching fat with a cocktail of concentrated stem cells, Mr Olivier Amar can create a filler to restore the youthful volume of your face, hands, décolletage and body. At the same time, the stem cells work to rejuvenate the skin’s tone and texture to reverse visible signs of ageing. Results develop gradually, look completely natural and last over a year, making this an extremely discreet treatment.
WHAT IS SVF?
Fat tissue contains a large number of regenerative and anti-ageing cells including growth factors and mesenchymal stem cells. Stem cells from fat are remarkable because they can transform themselves into different kinds of cells depending on where they are in the body. When placed in the skin, they act like young skin cells, repairing damage, making collagen and elastin, increasing hydration and generally restoring your skin to a more youthful appearance.
Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF) is a fluid derived from your own fat which has been treated to make it particularly rich in rich in super-cells, including a type of stem cells known as adipose derived mesenchymal stem cells. This hyper-concentrated, regenerative fluid is then mixed with purified fat to form a volume-enhancing filler which can restore facial contours while also rejuvenating skin. Enriching fat in this way also increases the success of the fat transfer process, so results are more predictable and stable.
WHY CONSIDER SUPER ENRICHED FAT TRANSFER WITH SVF STEM CELLS?
Super enriched fat transfer with SVF stem cells can be used deep in the skin to volumise and enhance the cheekbones, chin and jawline for a naturally sculpted, youthful appearance. At the same time, it is recommended for the treatment of many superficial signs of ageing and of skin damage. These can include:
- Lines and wrinkles
- Dry and dehydrated skin
- Sagging and loss of elasticity
- Large pores
- Acne scarring
- Loss of radiance and glow
Fat taken during a liposuction procedure can also be enriched with SVF stem cells and used to augment areas of the body, such as breasts and buttocks.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE PROCEDURE?
For your safety, Mr Olivier Amar personally examines every patient and takes a medical history before considering the correct course of treatment for them.
Mr Olivier Amar will remove some fat (60mls) from your body, usually from the abdomen or thighs, using a fine micro cannula for your comfort. Alternatively, if you are planning liposuction, you can use fat already taken during that procedure.
Your extracted fat is then spun and filtered in a centrifuge to extract SV Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF). This liquid is then mixed with purified fat to form a natural filler. This can then be used to enhance the face and body using a micro-cannula.
Fat storage has recently become available in the UK. If all the fat taken from you is not used in a single procedure, Mr Olivier Amar is happy to discuss the option of storing it for possible future treatments.
Super enriched fat transfer with SVF stem cells is performed as day case surgery. It is usually performed under total intravenous anaesthesia (TIVA), a technique of anaesthesia which uses a combination of agents given exclusively via the intravenous route without the use of gas anaesthesia. This means you will sleep comfortably throughout the procedure and wake immediately afterwards with a significantly reduced likelihood of feeling groggy or nauseous. Having surgery with TIVA allows you to go home the same day to rest and recuperate in comfort. Mr Olivier Amar’s practice is happy to assist with a nurse to stay with you overnight if you wish, as well as helping you find local accommodation after your surgery if necessary.
