This fat grafting technique selectively transfers pure fat having uncontaminated and healthy living cells collected after double filtration. The cannula used in this procedure is also much thinner compared to the conventional cannulas. It makes sure that when the surgeon reinjects the fat throughout the area that has been treated, fat cells are distributed evenly throughout to prevent any unevenness. As a result, the patient gets smoother skin with minimal uneven patches on the surface of the skin.
The surgeon will start the procedure by extracting fat from the thighs, abdomen, buttocks or any other donor areas.
Pure fat is then separated, purified and used for fat injection
A tiny cannula is then used for injecting the required fat amounts into subcutaneous skin, facial plane or muscles of the desired area, all along the invisible creases. Finally, the injected areas are stitched if necessary.
Usually, the fat is extracted from the abdomen, thighs or buttocks. Some other areas can also be considered if they have enough fat tissue for grafting purposes. In case, if the patient wants the fat to be extracted from a certain area, they can discuss with their surgeon during consultation.
After successful fat injection, the patients get a more youthful look while their facial features are softened up as well. Slight volume reduction can be experienced inside first 2-5 months after the procedure. This is the time required for residual swelling to subside while the body gets rid of fat tissues which did not survive the fat grafting process. In 6 months time, almost all the grafted tissues settle down completely leaving behind only the permanent cells.
