Who are fat injections ideal for?

Contrary to popular belief, the first indication of facial aging is not actually the appearance and deepening of the  wrinkles on the skin. In fact, the problem is the melting of the fat pads that provide the face with volume, particularly in the mid-face. This is what can give the face an aged and tired expression.

Wrinkle formation on the face usually becomes noticable in the late 30s. But actually, the face slowly starts losing volume at the beginning of the 30s, especially as the melting of the fat pads under the eyelids begins to occur. The middle part of the face becomes drained off, the overall look becomes skeletal, the lines on the face become deeper and the eye lids begin to sag.

In order to solve all of these problems at once, the drained area in the centre part of the face needs to be re-filled with the person’s own tissues.

How are fat injections applied?

Currently two methods are employed with the aim of transferring fat. These methods are “conventional fat injection” and “micro fat transplantation”. The difference between these two methods is the persistence of the amount injected. In the first method, fat is injected plain as a mass while in micro fat transplant, the fat is derived at low pressure to avoid damage, is processed and injected into the tissue gently, layer after layer in very small quantities. With this method, the dissolution rate of the fat cells is reduced from 80% to 30-40%, that is, the persistency of fat in the face is increased.

Micro injection also prevents fluctuations in the face and excessive swelling. In addition, since cells remain alive in the body, a single injection usually provides adequate results. With this technique, it is possible to fill up areas on the face where drooping or draining is experienced due to aging (cheeks, upper cheekbones, jaw line and around the lips) with fat derived from the abdomen, hips, waist or legs.

How long does fat injection take?

It lasts around 30 minutes.

What are the advantages of fat injection?

Local anaesthesia makes this a pain-free procedure. It is an effective and painless way to regain the lost volume on the face and create a more youthful look.

Are there any scars after fat injection?

Since fat injections are applied by entering from needle punctures, no scars are left after the surgery.

When can the patient go back to normal life after fat injection?

The patient can go go back to normal life after 1 to 2 hours. Slight oedema and bruising may be experienced for 4 to 7 days, depending on the amount of fat injected. These symptoms will disappear on their own.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should be considered before a fat injection?

As with all surgical procedures generally, patients should avoid using blood thinners, and should limit alcohol consumption and smoking as much as possible and ideally, stop all together in the two days leading up to surgery.

What are the factors to be considered after the surgery?

You can wash your face the  dayafter fat injections. Daily creams and oedema reducing creams can be used. Make-up can be worn. Ice application for the first three days is beneficial in reducing oedema. It is recommended to avoid sports activities for two weeks.

Are the results of fat injection permanent?

Fat injection is one of the most successful non-surgical face rejuvenation techniques today. On average, 50% of the fat injected is absorbed, 40 to 50% is permanent for life.

      Giving information about costs of operations without consulting your face and deciding what kind of operations you need is a misleading way. If you send some photos to our whatsapp number which is +905422829595, we can help you. Have a nice day.
