Fat injections

What

The aging process inevitable leads to gain in fatty deposits in unwanted areas and loss or deflation leading to loss of the “glow of youth” in the skin.

Fat transfer is a method to counteract this.

 

When

This depends on the indication, for example, tear trough deformities under the eyes can become evident in the mid 30’s

There is a wide range of indications and we can discuss this in detail.

 

How

Fat is harvested[from the various areas-mostly abdomen and thighs] via an inconspicuous incision -and injected into areas where is needed

It can be done awake, with some sedation or asleep

Time is variable-eg cheek rejuventation takes 60 minutes

The procedure is done as a day case

 

Healing

The bruising from the region of harvest settles in 7 days, and the donor region settles after 5 days

Fat that is harvested has often unpredictable survival, and depending on the desired outcome-might need to be repeated

•  Driving: 1-3 days

•  Back to work: 2-3 days

•  Exercise: 1 week
