Fat grafting is a modern and natural surgical method of reshaping and returning youthful appearance on face. It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The procedure is done under local anesthetic. The modern technologies also enable the fat to be transferred and used to reshape the breasts. Fat grafting is considered to be a natural way of having a facelift and a first step treatment before surgery. Due to the fact that some of the transferred fat disposes, permanent result is usually achieved after 2-3 treatment sessions, done once in every six months. Fat grafting can also be done in conjunction with other procedures such as facelift or liposuction. Fat can also be used to fill and even out scars and uneven skin.
The fat is gently taken with a small cannula from the stomach area or the outer thigh and injected to a desired place. The end result is very natural and the advantage of this procedure is that no implants are required, own body tissue is used.
Single use cannula's are used during the procedure which makes it safe and hygienic. No suturing is needed. You may go home during the same day, after a short rest. It is normal to have slight swelling and bruising for the next few weeks. Make up can be used from the following day onwards.
