Fat Transfer

Fat Stem Cell Grafting

BeforeAfter

This woman had been unhappy with the appearance of her face and neck for some years. She had considered treatments for years before deciding to go for a consultation.

She came to see Dr De Silva as a Top specialist in facial plastic surgery, she was keen on a natural-looking result and fast recovery time, and no one knowing that she had undergone surgery.

Dr De Silva spent the time to listen to her concerns and assess her face and neck meticulously. Dr De Silva put safety as the number 1 priority for all patients, and she underwent specific tests to ensure safety before surgery.

On assessment there was loss of volume and relatively thin skin that gave her a more gaunt appearance which was both unflattering and ageing. Dr De Silva recommended his customised combined facelift with a signature stem cell technique.

This customised approach enhances volume loss with the use of fat transfer and a proprietary regenerative medicine technique to potentiate the final result. In addition, the patient had thinner skin and the after photograph shows an appearance that is both rejuvenated and refreshed.

Thin skin is particularly challenging in the neck area as the underlying anatomy can be seen, this improves until 1-year after surgery. However, it is not possible to make this area completely smooth, and so realistic expectations are important.

Dr De Silva is an advocate of utilising the latest in technology to advance recovery and improve overall results. He uses innovation and high-tech to improve natural-looking results, including the use of PRP (Natural growth factors used by Professional athletes), Stem Cell technology (Regenerative medicine), 3-D Cameras and High-Strength Oxygen (Rarely available in the UK except for very serious medical conditions, professional athletes).

At 4-months there is a good improvement in her neck, with an improved shape and jawline. There is a marked improvement in the loose skin and scars are difficult to see.

The very final result from face and neck lift surgery is towards a year and further healing that will continue to improve. The patient was very happy with the final result as had noticed a marked natural improvement in her appearance, no visible scars from surgery and she looked like a rejuvenated version of herself.

BeforeAfter

This gentleman had scarring on his face following acne in his youth. The scars were deep and irregular in the surface, in addition, there was loss of volume.

Dr De Silva recommended his customised combined stem cell technique with laser skin resurfacing & regenerative medicine techniques. This customised approach enhances volume loss with the use of a fat transfer and a proprietary regenerative medicine technique to potentiate the final result.

Acne scarring is a particularly challenging condition to treat and no treatment is a silver bullet that treats all scars. Thus, realistic expectations are important. As the treatment utilises regenerative medicine some of the results are not apparent until 1 and half years after surgery.

BeforeAfter

This woman had been unhappy with the appearance of her face and neck for some years. She had considered treatments for years before deciding to go for a consultation.

She came to see Dr De Silva who is a top specialist in facial plastic surgery who had published numerous research articles on beautification of the face and using the Phi Golden Ratio. She was keen on a natural-looking result and fast recovery time, with no one knowing that she had undergone surgery.

Dr De Silva spent the time to listen to her concerns and assess her face and neck meticulously. Patients with lesser changes in the neck area can be rejuvenated with a smaller procedure, a mini-facelift.

The advantage of a mini-facelift requires less surgery than a facelift and as a result, the recovery and healing is faster. Many patients are concerned about the scars from facelift surgery and anyone seeing that they have undergone surgery. Dr De Silva likes to hide scars in the natural curves around the patients' ears and hairline.

Dr De Silva spends additional time with each patient during surgery to maximise the results and does not believe surgery should be rushed. He only completes one facelift surgery in each day.

Mini-facelift surgery requires a minimum of three hours. Although surgery can be completed faster compromises must be made to the technique and hiding scars around of the curvature of the ears takes time to complete to ensure a natural-looking result.

In younger patients, particular care and attention to detail is required as there are often minimal natural lines or creases, and scars must be cautiously completed to ensure they are hidden.

BeforeAfter

The scars from facelift surgery are necessary to remove loose skin after lifting. Dr De Silva believes that the key to a natural face & neck lift is hiding the scars making them difficult to see.

Dr De Silva's preference is to conceal the scars in the natural curves around the ear, within the hair and behind the ear. Although some surgeons will save time by bringing scars in front of the ear or below the hairline, this results in a visible scar that is very difficult to improve.

Dr De Silva has developed scar-hiding techniques that include special stitches, with several layer closure under minimum tension.

Although the final result from scars is as long as 18months, many scars are favourable and difficult to see at 6-8weeks after surgery as long as appropriate precautions are taken
