Face Fat Reduction Treatment in Hyderabad

Filling out hollow cheeks and other signs of ageing on the face can be dealt with by fat injections using fat transferred from other parts of the body. Fat can be removed as a liquid in a syringe from one’s body and injected into the areas of the face where fullness is needed. In some individuals, the face is the first part of losing fat when they are exercising or on a diet; so when they try to lose weight, their face starts looking tired and old due to fat loss. This procedure can help reverse the harsh changes. Liposuction of fat from the abdomen and injection into the face can serve the dual purpose of slimming the waist and rejuvenating the face. Fat deposits are present usually in the lower abdomen and in thighs even in slim individuals.

You are an ideal candidate for face fat reduction if:

  • You are above 18 yrs old
  • In good health
  • Have substantial fat on the body to be transposed to the face

Is the Fat injection procedure to my face safe?

Since the fat injected is taken from your own body, it is a completely safe procedure.

Does the injected fat remain in the sculpted areas? How often does the procedure have to be retouched?

Survival of the injected fat depends on a lot of factors, especially the technique of solid handling and injection. Injected fat contains live fat cells which take new blood supply, survive and even grow. Up to 50 percent of fat cells may not survive. To overcome this extra amount is injected, more than what is needed. Even then frequently another sitting is required to get the desired result.

How long does the transferred fat last? Is this a permanent procedure?

Once the desired fullness has been obtained by one or two sittings of fat injection into the face and the result has been stable for three months, fat can last for years. Of course, it increases and decreases with weight.

What are the risks in this procedure?

Potential problems can be- infection, fat absorption, asymmetry, undercorrection and overcorrection. These problems are easily corrected.

If I do not have substantial fat in my body to be transferred, what is my alternative?

The alternative would be synthetic filler substances (temporary and permanent). These are easily available.

How will I look and feel after my fat transfer procedure?

The cheeks will be swollen soon after surgery and for the next 3 to 4 days. But all that is not fat but only a reaction to the injection. Swelling comes down entirely in the next 1 to 2 weeks, and you can appreciate the result. There may be black and blue patches, especially below the eyes for the first few days. You will need to take antibiotics and painkillers for three days.

How soon can I go back for the next fat transfer injection?

You have to allow the body to adapt to the procedure and heal completely before undergoing the next round of injections. This is ideally a period of 6 weeks.
