Transfer purified fat to breasts and face

Lipotransfer or fat transfer to breasts is now becoming a popular request in my practice especially among young women with small breasts who do not desire surgery for breast augmentation and older women with post pregnancy loss of volume causing deflated looking breasts and sagging breasts. There is also an increase need for filling of the face to recreate a 3D effect which fats can do better then synthetic fillers. 
Lipotransfer or Fat Grafting has been conducted worldwide since many years ago but the processing of the harvested fat was very tedious and time consuming. And if the harvested fat is not purified properly or adequately, the implanted fat will degenerate very fast making its effect last only 9-12monrhs, similar to implanted  hyaluronic acid fillers. With better purification of extracted fat, the implanted fat lasts longer ie upto 5 years and has a higher survival rate in recipient site. 

In Nov 2015, I was in Tokyo Japan for a short course on Fat Grafting and Lipotransfer using the Puregraft. Puregraft is a device that enables the purification of harvested fat without the need for centrifugation which is traditionally  done. It uses a special filtration system that enables the fat graft to go through but traps any debris, fibre and unwanted agents within the graft. 


The training was conducted by Prof Yoshiro Kamakura at his classy Shishin Aesthetic Surgery Clinic right in the heart of Roponggi Tokyo. Roponggi was so happening at this time of year as it was Halloween weekend.

It started with a brief lecture on principals of fat grafting and transfer to breasts as well as the advantages of using Puregraft to purify the extracted fat before transferring. This is as opposed to the traditional method of spinning the fat to separate it from the oil and anesthetic fluid as well as debris.



Puregraft enables the fat to be cleansed and purified without centrifugation and can be transferred a lot faster then traditionally. The purified fat allows for longer lasting fat graft. If previously lipotransfers fat effect lasted 9months to 2 years, with Puregraft it could last upto 5years. 
Method :
1. Local anesthesia is given in the form of tumescent to the areas where fat is to be harvested. These are usually the tummy, inner and outer thighs and sometimes upper arms. 

2. Harvesting  of fat is conducted after several minutes and once the local tumescent anesthesia has taken effect.  


3.  A nurse helps to sort out the fat grafts while DrKamakura continues his fat harvesting.

The Puregraft 800 bag is positioned properly ready to receive the extracted fats.

4.  Once the pinkish yellow extracted fats were put into the Puregraft bag, it only takes 10-15 min for the process to complete. DrKamakura's skill in fat extraction is superb. 

5. The purified fat is then transferred back into 60cc syringes , ready to be implanted into face or breasts. In this case it was for breasts. 

6. It is important to know the anatomy of the breasts to ensure the correct level of placement of the puregrafted fat.

7. Local anesthesia is also given to the breasts first. The fat graft is then gently placed into each breasts using special curved instruments. 

The breasts really looked beautiful and natural after the procedure was complete. The best part is it also felt natural!

After a we finished , we went for a good traditional Japanese dinner with the team where certificates and gifts were presented. What a fun and fruitful day it was. I am excited to perform fat grafting using this Puregraft technique back in Malaysia.

IMMUNE BOOST YOUR SYSTEM with CYTOKINEs

What is Cytokines?
The term "cytokine" is derived from a combination of two Greek words - "cyto" meaning cell and "kinos" meaning movement. Cytokines are cell signalling molecules that aid cell to cell communication in immune responses and stimulate the movement of cells towards sites of inflammation, infection and trauma.


They are released mainly to stimulate an immune response when the cells detect any  foreign substances in the blood. Cytokines essentially consists of proteins, peptides, and glycoproteins. They are primarily released by immune system cells in order to initiate cell-to-cell interaction in order to generate an immune response.  For instance when white cells come into contact with pathogens(bacteria, viruses) they immediately release cytokines, which in turn communicate and activate other white blood cells to attavk the foreign invader.

This is the natural way our immune response of alerting and recruiting more numbers of White Blood Cell…

Vulvalar Whitening

Many Asian women experience a darkening of the inner thigh skin or the perineum skin as they age and especially after pregnancy. This is a very common phenomenon and can be quite unbecoming especially in a swimsuit or bikini. Sometime this darkening is due to the rubbing of inner thigh skin together due to excess fat in the thighs or a fungal infection which causes itchiness and scratching. Our new laser can now treat this area of skin. Each treatment can improve the condition by at least 20%. Because of this I usually recommend 3 sessions with each session 1 month apart. Although I must say that some women have found satisfactory outcome even after just 1 treatment.

5 Proven Methods for Permanent Fat Reduction

I have come across many clients who ask me about fat removal and they often confuse this with weightloss. Due to the many marketing ads all around us that offer"slimming" procedures, I find that many women are confused as to wether they want to loose weight or reduce fat.




So I categorize clients like this:


A. those who are overweight or obese with a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 27 an above. You will need to loose overall weight for a healthier and trimmer looking body.
There will be excess fat here and there but it is no use thinking about them when over all you have excess fat including visceral fat.
And
B. those who are of normal body weight (BMI 25 and below) or just slightly overweight (BMI 25-27) and have certain areas of stubborn fat which do not seem to go away despite exercise or would like a trimmer, better silhuoette.

For FAT REDUCTION on the spot , there are several methods to loose them. These can be minimally invasive or non invasive at all.
