The procedure of giving fat to those regions withinside the shape of skinny layers is known as a fat injection to the face. fat to be injected into the face is taken from the stomach or hip areas.

The operation has to be implemented through an experienced and professional doctor. Since it is an important operation, the experience and success of the doctor come first. Otherwise, undesirable results can be encountered.


Fat injection in the face, What is the process of it?

During Fat injection in the face, a small hole that is only one millimeter in size will be loosened, and a needle with a round end will be used to extract 20-30 cm of fat from the desired area. We need to clarify that the amount of fat can hold up to 30 cubic meters. After ingestion, the fat is transferred to the desired area of ​​the face. As with many other cosmetic surgery procedures, there are no stitches or scars left after this operation.

Fat injection in the face is an operation performed alone, it is often combined with other aesthetic operations. We should add that it is a process that takes a long time and is combined with operations performed under general anesthesia, such as Rhinoplasty or Facelift operation. In other words, the fat injection will be applied to the face in only 15 minutes of nasal or other facial aesthetic operations. We should state that the fat injection in the face operation could be done under local anesthesia. It is a procedure that is completed in a short time by numbing the relevant area.

What is the percentage of fat injection in the face?

Fat injection in the face is an operation that increases its popularity with each passing day. Fat injection in the face is used in processes such as filling the cheek area and shaping the chin, especially the clarification of the cheekbone. Many people have question marks about how permanent this practice is. According to the researches, it has been determined that the permanence rate of the operation is around 60 percent. Therefore, in some cases, a second facial fat injection is needed.

If the operation has to be repeated, different problems may arise. Taking fat from the abdomen or hip area every time brings with it some risks. In order to eliminate this problem, extra fat can be taken during the first operation to be used in subsequent injections. If the fat is kept at minus 20 degrees, there will be no problems.

When it comes to facial fat injection, the face needs an amount of 10 to 12cc. 20 cc of fat is taken from the determined abdomen or hip areas of ​​the body. While 10cc of part is injected into the face, the remaining part is kept for use in case of a second operation. At this point, we should say that 6cc of 10cc injected fat into the face will be permanent. In the next session, with the injection of 10cc of fat, a total of 10 to 12cc fat will be applied.

Since the permanence rate of the fat to be injected into the face is at most 60 percent, more fat can be made especially in the first session. Therefore, a temporary swelling may occur in the patient. However, this swelling will pass as soon as possible after taking the necessary medications.
