Adip’sculpt Fat Transfer
Posted: 22 December 2017
Adip’sculpt has revolutionised fat transfer treatments for facial fillers, breast augmentation, breast reconstruction (such as post-breast cancer) and body contouring. Adipsculpt has increased the success rate of successful fat transfer from the previous range of 30-50% to 70-90% using the Adip’sculpt equipment and process, providing reliable and predictable fat transfer outcomes for both practitioners and patients.
An Adip’sculpt generally involves harvesting fat from the stomach, buttock or thighs and carefully processing it to retain intact fat lobules. The fat lobules, which contain stem cells in addition to fat cells, are then reinfected into the desired area of the body where they are integrated in the body as natural, living tissue.
How Was Adipsculpt Fat Transfer Invented?
The development of Adip’sculpt began when French scientists, Dr Franck Festy and Dr Regis Roche, were conducting research on Diabetes and approached a plastic surgeon to obtain discarded fat cells from liposuction to use in their studies. During their conversations the topic of fat transfer was discussed, including the issue of low fat retention rates of only 30-50%. The plastic surgeon asked Dr Festy and Dr Roche for their ideas on how to improve the success of fat transfer.
Over the course of more than 10 years Dr Festy and Dr Roche researched every aspect of the fat-transfer process from harvesting, processing through to re-injection. The end result was the development of Adip’sculpt equipment and procedures, which now deliver improved rates of successful fat retention in the range of 70-90%.
The Adip’sculpt procedure is designed to extract and preserve the right size of fat cells best suited for the new area to achieve long-term, natural-looking results.
Fat Transfer As A Natural Alternative To Injectable Facial Fillers
Facial fillers commonly use a compound called Hyaluronic Acid as an injectable substance to add volume to face and other areas. The filler will gradually be lost over time and the procedure will need to be repeated regularly to maintained the desired volume.
Adipsculpt is used in the same way as fillers with the difference that it is your own tissue that integrates as part of your natural structure. Because of this the result is considered relatively permanent.
Fat Transfer For Breast Augmentation & Reconstruction
Adipsculpt can be used in a number of ways for Breast Augmentation and Breast Reconstruction. This includes
- For breast enlargement of 1-2 cup sizes as an alternative to Breast Implants
- In conjunction with breast implants for cleavage enhancement and creating a more natural look
- For full breast reconstructions eg. after Breast Cancer

BodyFX™ – Non-Invasive Body Contouring & Cellulite Treatment
￼What is BodyFX™?
BodyFX is a new, long lasting, non-invasive solution to reduce the unsightly appearance of cellulite leading to improvements in your body contour. BodyFX will reshape your body to provide a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. BodyFX is a perfect solution to get rid of your mummy tummy or muffin top.
How does BodyFX™ work?
BodyFX uses a combination of different clinically proven modalities including radio- frequency energy, deep tissue heating and suction coupled negative pressure. The radio-frequency energy distributes heat to the skin and underlying fat, causing the tissues to heat and contract. The vacuum and controlled energy pulses then work synergistically to provide beautiful body contouring results.
Energist VPL Permanent Hair and Skin Rejuvenation
Widely regarded as one of the most effective and reliable pulsed-light devices for permanent hair reduction and skin rejuvenation, the European designed and built Energist VPL was one of the first systems released in Australia and is available in all capital cities and many regional locations.
The Variable Pulsed Light technology of the Energist system allows a multi-pulse of light to be delivered to the skin. The skin cools faster than the hair so more energy can be delivered to the hair follicle with the treatment and it is safer and more comfortable for the client.
Energist has been established in the Australian market for well over a decade meaning that professionals who have worked with Energist long-term are some of the most experienced light-based treatment therapists in Australia. The continuing refinements that Energist has made to their equipment ensures these therapists continue to deliver consistently high standards of results for their clients.

Deka Duolite & QS4 Laser Tattoo Removal
Q-Switched Laser For High Quality Tattoo Removal and Pigmentation Treatments
The Duolite & QS4 QS system is manufactured by Europe’s largest medical laser company, Deka Lasers. Deka has been manufacturing lasers for over 30 years and has developed some of the leading innovations in cosmetic medicine.
The Deka ‘Q-switched’ lasers can target pigments in the skin with a high energy pulse delivered in an extremely short timeframe (max 6 ns). This produce a “photo-acoustic” effect that breaks down the cells containing the tattoo pigment. The laser emits extremely high energy, short pulses of light that shatter the tattoo ink into minute particles allowing them to be released from the cells and eliminated through lymphatic-draining.
Each laser wavelength (a single colour of light) target a particular structure (chromophore) in the skin. If the correct laser wavelength is selected the laser will target the pigment and leave the surrounding tissues unaffected. The Deka QS lasers have multiple laser wavelengths to provide greater versatility to target different colours in the skin.
