Fat Injection (Fat Grafting)
Fat injection, which finds a wide application field in cosmetic surgery as a filler today, is increasing its popularity day by day. For esthetic surgeons, healthy results can be obtained with the filling materials used in rejuvenation applications from the hand and face areas. These cells, which are filled with fat cells injected into the body, rejuvenate the skin after a while.
When the fat cells given to the patient die, the effect of the filler is removed. Therefore, tools and techniques to be applied in the fat grafting process are important. Nowadays, we can talk about the existence of many techniques. Along with the effect of aging, sags and reductions can be seen in the face area. With the Fat Injection process, the reduced fat on the face is implanted and the face becomes more full, alive and younger. In younger patients, thinness can be seen due to the soft bone structure and texture of the face.
We can say that the fat injections are also applied in such cases. This application, which has a very long-lasting and natural appearance results when applied in the areas with reduced tissue volume, is taken from different parts of the body and after a special treatment, it is corrected and injected through oil cannulas. Fat injections are applied to the lower jaw, forehead, areas having scars, hands and after-liposuction areas, especially the face and lip areas. The fat to be injected is generally taken from the waist or abdominal area. This fat tissue passes through specific procedures and is injected with special end-pieces to the area that you request. It can be done only once or during different operations. Local anesthesia and sedation can be performed in small and local areas.
As long as the Fat Injection is successfully completed, the healing process becomes more comfortable. Social life can be continued on the same day without the need to stay in the hospital. Edema may occur in areas where only the fat is injected after application, and this is completely natural. This situation, which can be seen more on your lips, recovers in time and reveals your aesthetic beauty. In patients with no successful results a second injection can be done again after two months.
