As you may have seen on the recent episode of Last Chance Salon, fat grafting as an alternative to fillers is becoming an increasing option for surgeons. Mr Vijh, founder of The Beauty Gurus, is at the forefront of this pioneering technique. Put simply, the patients’ own fat is used as an alternative to fillers to emphasise or contour certain areas.

There are several distinct advantages to this procedure. First, the patient loses volume from areas they actually want to lose it from! This could be the buttocks, tummy, thighs etc . Secondly, variable amounts can be harvested giving the surgeon greater flexibility. Finally, there is no chance of rejection by the body as the fat is the patients’s own!

For patients wanting body contouring and facial rejuvenation this technique is extremely successful. However, don’t be fooled into thinking this technique is easy, universally available or should be performed by anyone. Like any other technique, it is only as good as the surgeon carrying it out.

Mr Vijh visits, lectures and educates at plastic surgery conferences around the globe. As we advise frequently, go with a surgeon that leads, that is fully qualified, that is experienced in your procedure. A plastic or cosmetic surgeon is legally allowed to perform any cosmetic procedure. However, it does not mean they will be good at it or experienced at it.
