Question

I wondered if fat grafting is something that is now done regularly in the UK for parts of the body such as arms, legs etc.

How successful is this procedure?

Answer

Fat transfer is commonly carried out in the UK for a variety of body areas. The quality of the outcome is however more variable, depending on the treatment zone.

My experience with transfer to the legs has been that it is more difficult to create a stable enhancement, whereas in the thighs or arms it is more reliable.

Some of the elements that introduce variability include the patient's general weight, exercise levels, and probably to some extent diet.
