A. Contact rooms for information and queries.B. CONSULTATIONOn average expect 1-2 pre-treatment consultations. The first is for Dr Evans to take a full medical history, undertake an examination, undergo photography and discuss concerns. A second consultation is usually necessary to discuss details of the procedure, expectations, risks and postoperative care. Surgical and financial consents are finalised.C. RE-OPERATIVE PREPARATIONThis requires elimination of all medications and preparations that induce bleeding, advice on skin care, arranging time off work and help at home, obtaining dressing and medications necessary for the procedure.PROCEDUREThis is undertaken under local or twilight anaesthesia, usually at Shire Cosmetic Medicine. The procedure requires local anaesthetic infiltration into donor and recipient sites. Fat is harvested by means of liposuction from the abdomen, hips, buttocks, inner and outer thighs or knee areas. The fat is then centrifuged, processed and decanted into small syringes for facial micro-injections. Often Platelet-Rich-Precipitate is added. The entire process can take from 1 – 2 hours, depending on the volumes and sites to be filled.E. POSTOPERATIVE CAREAntibiotics and pain medications may be prescribed. Usually the face is uncovered whilst healing, you can gently shower with warm water the next day and use a basic cleanser and moisturiser whilst the face is healing such as Cetaphil. Bruising and swelling can always be expected and is extremely variable. It is important to rest and ice the face as much as possible during the first 24 -48 hrs following the procedure. Swelling can take a few weeks to resolve and it may take up to 6 -8 weeks to see your final result, depending on volume and sites injected. Small areas settle quickly and downtime may only be a week. You may experience bruising and discomfort in the area from where the fat cells were taken, usually the abdomen or thighs.
