What is Fat Injection?

The process called fat injection is the process of transferring fat taken from a part of the body with excess fatty tissue by the method of aspiration and transferring it to the necessary area with needles. With this method, the procedure can be applied to any part of the body that is needed. It helps to reduce reduce wrinkles, correct contours and achieve skin rejuvenation. In fat injection, a thin cannula is used to remove fat cells from areas such as the abdomen and buttocks. After the fat is removed, a 3 to 4 mm incision is made, leaving an inconspicuous scar. The area where the fat was removed will also become thinner. If you have a small margin, you may have killed two birds with one stone.

However, the main goal is to obtain dense fat grafts from stem cells. It is injected into the desired area with appropriate cannulas-needles. It is not possible to say that all the injected fat cells stay or melt away. Basically, it would not be wrong to say that at least 50% of the fat grafts remain depending on the area applied. It is an advantage that the applied fat contains dense stem cells, is the person's own tissue and can be obtained more than ready-made fillings for large areas. Fat injection can be applied to any part of the body where it is needed. In practice, most commonly in the face area; It can be used to define and thicken the lips, to fill the lines extending from the edge of the nose to the lips (nasolabial sulcus), to define the cheekbone and chin tip, to fill the wrinkles between the forehead and eyebrows, to plump the cheeks especially in thin people, in all kinds of collapse and irregularities on the face, curvatures in the legs, breast asymmetries, hollow areas formed after liposuction surgery, for rejuvenation on the back of the hand, in combination with facelift and other operations. The excess fat removed during the procedure can be stored and then injected into the required areas without liposuction. The disadvantage of this procedure is that the fat melts to a certain extent. Since there will be a homogeneous melting in case of melting in fat cells , if 20% of the fat cells on the left side of your cheek melts , 20% of the fat cells on the right side will also melt. The melting of fat does not cause any harm to the body and the procedure is repeated if necessary.

Fat injection can be performed under sedation anesthesia. The average procedure time takes 30 minutes - 1 hour, depending on the size of the area to be treated. Since there is no incision, there is no scar problem. After the procedure, edema that will last for a few days in the applied area is normal. Ice application and simple painkillers are useful. The person can return to work and social life within a few days to a few weeks, depending on the degree of the procedure, social status and work. People who complain about the small size of their buttocks can be enlarged directly by placing a buttock prosthesis if there is not enough fat tissue in their body to inject into the buttocks or if the patient does not want fat injection surgery. The underlying cause is mainly that the muscle structures that make up the buttocks are not sufficiently developed. When the muscles in this area are underdeveloped, the person's buttocks become flat and there is no protrusion height towards the back. The prostheses placed in the buttocks area are usually placed inside or behind the muscles in this area. The prostheses used in this surgery are not different from breast prostheses in terms of function. The difference is that these prostheses have a harder consistency than the prostheses placed on the breast. Since these implants have a hard consistency, there is no risk of explosion. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia. After the operation, which is performed by entering the natural line between the two parts of the butt, there is no visible scar from the outside. Patients can return to social life within the first week after surgery. After the sixth week, they can begin physical and sports exercises.
