Fat Injection Into Face

Fat Injection Into Face – Fat can be removed as a liquid in a syringe from one’s body and injected into another part of the body where fullness is needed. Hollow cheeks can be filled, and ageing face can be made to appear youthful by fat injection. 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. Liposuction of fat from 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.

FAQ

IS FAT INJECTION SAFE?

Fat is from your body and is safe.

DOES THE FAT SURVIVE IN THE FACE? HOW MANY TIMES DOES IT HAVE TO BE INJECTED?

Survival of 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 RESULT LAST? IS IT PERMANENT?

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

ARE THERE ANY RISKS?

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

IF I DO NOT HAVE SUFFICIENT FAT IN MY BODY CAN SOMETHING ELSE BE INJECTED?

Synthetic filler substances (Temporary and Permanent) are available in the market.

WHICH AREAS OF THE BODY CAN BE INJECTED WITH FAT?

Fat can be injected anywhere in the face, buttocks, chest or anywhere else where there is a depression or irregularity. Fat injection can be done to correct liposuction irregularities also.

HOW WILL I LOOK AND FEEL AFTER SURGERY?

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

IF I WANT FURTHER FAT INJECTION WHEN CAN I GO FOR SECOND SITTING?

Second sitting of fat injection into face can be done after six weeks.

THE PART FROM WHICH FAT IS REMOVED DOES THAT GET SHAPED AS WELL?

Fat removal by liposuction can shape that part provided enough fat is removed.
