Dr. Alfredo Callanta

Dr. Alfredo V. Callanta is a renowned Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeon in the field of fat harvest and fat grafting in the Philippines. He has built a formidable reputation in fat grafting by using a combination of medical expertise, consummate skill, artistic vision, latest state of the art technique and outstanding customer service. He learned his fat grafting to the face technique from Dr. Roger Amar who is the creator of the FAMI technique (your own adult stem cells grafted by injection into the muscle). For the fat grafting to the breast, he trained under Dr. Roger Khouri who contributed to the innovations in liposuction and lipografting, and was the inventor of the Brava external breast tissue expander followed by large volume fat graft. As per Dr. Callanta, there is no other way to perfect the techniques than by first, learning them from the masters, and then, honing them by doing it again and again.

This website is dedicated to Adifill, Dr. Callanta’s latest technique in facial and hand rejuvenation, breast augmentation, butt augmentation, hip contouring, correction of post-liposuction irregularity using autologous fat. The process of Adifill is harvesting an adipose filler from the stubborn fat using a powercan lipo, which is a less traumatic machine which uses a 2-mm reciprocating movement at 4,000 cycles per minute to facilitate the procedure. The harvested fat is processed to make it into an adipose filler which uses your body’s own natural fat to achieve exceptional, permanent results, with less risk, minimal downtime, and no need to return for frequent maintenance treatments. This harvested adipose filler is the most cost effective way to enhance the face and body. After the procedure, he educates the patient about wellness and anti-aging protocols to complement their new look. That is a holistic way of achieving the best result which is enhancing the patient’s external appearance at the same time improving his health from the inside.

Dr. Callanta is committed to achieving beautiful, natural-looking results with the utmost in safety for Asian patients taking into consideration that Asians have a unique body shape, physique, cultural characteristics and unique demands on how they want to be enhanced as compared to Caucasians. Bringing in to patients a cutting age technology which he acquired during his many trainings outside of the Philippines in the field of fat grafting and aesthetic wellness, he has built his practice on word of mouth referrals from his happy and satisfied patients coming in from the USA, Spain, England, Australia, Japan, Thailand and of course the Philippines.

Although he still does other cosmetic procedures per request, he lives by the saying of Aristotle—- “we are what we repeatedly do, excellence then is not an act but a habit”. He is continuously searching for breakthrough treatments, more effective products and new advanced technologies so that he may share to patients and educate them as well. Dr. Callanta and his professional staff see to it that every individual that they meet get correct information that they are entitled to.
