As the skin ages, it not only loses its elasticity but also undergoes transformations. Adipose tissue degenerates, and some fat cells migrate to different areas.
Facial rejuvenation through fat transfer, a globally recognised and approved treatment. This procedure, often referred to as fat injection, is minimally invasive. It is considered a safe treatment because it utilises the patient’s own autologous fat cells, eliminating the risk of allergic reactions or immune complications. The primary advantage of this method is the natural aesthetic outcome. This treatment not only visibly corrects targeted areas of the face, such as eye corner wrinkles, sagging cheeks, sunken eyes, hollowing of the temples, and deep tear troughs, but also improves the contours in the areas from which fat is harvested for transfer, typically the abdomen, waist, or buttocks.
What to expect during the surgery?
- In most cases, the surgery involves overcorrection, meaning a slightly larger amount of fat is injected to compensate for the fact that not all transferred fat cells will successfully establish themselves.
What to expect after the surgery?
- During the first week, swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort can be expected at both the treatment and donor sites, necessitating rest at home. By the second week, swelling subsides rapidly, and pain and bruises fade away.
- Physical activities should be avoided for one to three weeks following the treatment.
- Results of the treatment become visible after three weeks, although the final outcome will be most pleasing within 3-6 months post-treatment. Facial rejuvenation through fat transfer is evident, long-lasting, and reliable in achieving the desired aesthetic goals.
