INJECTING FAT TO THE FACE
Injecting fat to the face applications has recently gained an important place in plastic surgery applications. Fat cells have been preferred quite often since they act as stem cells, and are the most natural filling materials that are obtained from an individual.
In fat injection applications, the fat tissue that is collected from problematic areas of the body with the help of Liposuction is made ready for injection through various processes. This filling material, which may be prepared at desired volumes, is frequently used to correct the contours in the face, breast and butt area, and sometimes, it is also preferred for filling the collapsed parts of the body. The collapsing areas may be easily eliminated with this technique, and you can also get rid of the excessive fats in your body in the same session.
For fat injection surgery, the patient is asked not to consume foods or beverages 6 hours before the surgery. After this fasting period, the patients who are admitted to hospital are taken to their rooms; and are evaluated for the last time by the anesthetist and me. At this stage, firstly, photographs are taken, and surgery drawings are made. After a sedative medication is applied, patients whose tension and stress are reduced are taken to surgery.
The surgery is often carried out under sedation, and the surgery duration is approximately 45 minutes depending on the amount of the fat to be removed.
When you wake up after the surgery, there will be bandages and corsets in the areas where fat was injected. You will be taken to your room when you recover. I discharge my patients on the same day following the surgery.
You can take a bath as of the 2nd day; and as of the 5-6th day, you can return to your normal life.
