I would highly recommend Nana Plastic Surgery Clinic. I had a full mommy makeover and Dr Hwang did a great job! The language barrier was never a problem thanks to the amazing English consultant Kylie. She has put in hours helping me …
I am delighted to offer a review for ATOP Plastic Surgery Clinic. From the moment I received my first reply from Leah on my inquiry for council from ATOP until my last follow-up, I have been treated with care and kindness throughout. The professionalism by the entire staff has always been shown and helped ease my concerns of the potential procedure. In addition, since I do not speak Korean and only English, both Leah and Anna who spoke excellent English were always available for accurate translation. After my first conversation with Anna, she explained all the details and answered all my questions quickly and thoroughly. Once Dr. Ahn came in for the consultation he was extremely nice, professional, and helped me understand what the best course of action would be to correct the brow sag that was affecting my peripheral vision. While my sagging brows were affecting my vision, it was also affecting my ability to read without getting extremely tired. Once the procedure was complete, I immediately noticed the difference and was able to read without getting tired and my peripheral vision was greatly improved. Thank you, Dr. Ahn and staff for your professionalism and kindness and I will offer my recommendation to those interested in the ATOP Plastic Surgery Clinic.
Heart here6 months passed, very pleasant to the touch and shapeIsn't it famous for my heart?There is also a person who is in charge of post-management care alone.It is recommended if there is a person around the kindness
Dr. Kim at dermatology does her job!! Was there for acne scar treatment a while ago and now I go time to time when I feel it's necessary. She speaks good English and all staffs are very friendly. Highly recommended.
Christy was simply amazing and very helpful. Her English is exceptional and she was extremely friendly which really helped me with my anxiety. My case was difficult as my previous Rhinoplasty was infected and got really bad and I was scared that I wouldn’t be able to get my normal nose back. However, Dr Kim was a true professional and he was honest with me that he would only be able to fix about 80%. To be honest I was disappointed hearing that but in the end I’d rather have a doctor who is upfront with me about what he can and cannot do than making false promises. I am now more than half a year post op ( 8 months) and the nose is shaping up alright! Albeit the parts where he couldn’t fix still bothers me a lot but all in all I’m glad to have a normal life back. Thank you Dr Kim, Christy, and all the staff at April 31!

Also known as Fat Harvesting, Fat Grafting, Fat Injections, Lipofilling, Fat Transfer is a cosmetic surgery involving the movement of fat from one part of the body to another. During this procedure, your own fat will be used to fill in irregularities and grooves, primarily in the face, around the temples, eyes, chin, and lips. It can also be used to enhance the appearance of the breast, feet, hips, buttocks, and hands. The procedure is now a well-established technique that was perfected in the early nineties.
Some of the most common aesthetic indications for undergoing fat transfer / lipofilling include sunken cheeks, the disappearance of fat from the cheekbones, deep grooves running from the nose to the corners of the mouth, and in some instances of lines between the lower eyelids and the cheek. It is also one of the most common methods used for lip enhancement. In addition, lipofilling can be used to smooth out all types of irregularities such as those resulting from poorly performed liposuction or injuries.
The necessary fat is obtained by a limited liposculpture through one or several 3 to 5 mm incisions. It is normally taken from the abdomen or inner thigh. The aspirated fat is processed by centrifuging, filtering or rinsing. Pure liquid fatty tissue ready for injection is the result. The fat is then injected where needed. The fat is evenly distributed into the area by injecting minute amounts in the tissues so that the injected fat is well surrounded by healthy tissue. This ensures that the transplanted fat remains in contact with the surrounding tissues that must supply it with oxygen and nutrients.
Consisting of two completely different procedures, extraction of fat called liposuction and transfer of fat through injections. Both the donor and recipient sites are sedated by giving local anesthesia. After this, fat is harvested through injections from the sites where adipocytes are tightly packed, such as the buttocks or abdomen. However, the fat present in lateral sides of the thighs and lower abdomen is also good fat as it contains a larger concentration of adipose-derived stem cells. These stem cells promote angiogenesis and adipogenesis at the recipient site - multiple injections are used to do this. The material extracted is centrifuged, sedimented and filtered for excessive liquid and pure fat cells are injected just below the skin. This is the most difficult step of fat transfer to inject fat evenly in different layers of recipient tissue. Cannulas and syringes of different sizes are used to do this. In the case of breast augmentation, multiple fat injections are applied to the breasts. It is ensured that these fat cells are injected near a blood vessel so the cells don't die due to a lack of nutrition. Proper nutrition is needed for the cells to survive and grow.
Facial fat transfer: If you have facial creases, such as laugh lines, smile lines, and crow’s-feet, fat can be removed from your abdomen, thighs, or other areas and be injected into your face. Acne scars and sunken areas of the face, lips, and cheeks can also be filled in. Your plastic surgeon can even use grafted fat to minimize lines between your nose and mouth, correct skin depressions or indentations and minimize forehead wrinkles. (Facelift, Lip Augmentation)
Breast augmentation: Fat transfer breast augmentation essentially uses liposuction to take fat from other parts of your body and inject it into your breasts. This is a breast augmentation option for women who are looking for a relatively small increase in breast size and would prefer natural results.
Breast implants plus fat grafting: If your breast shape needs optimizing during a breast implant procedure, fat grafting can be useful. If you have residual breast irregularities after undergoing breast augmentation with implants, the irregularities can be filled in with fat to produce a smooth contour and an optimal shape.
Breast reconstruction with fat grafting: If you have breast defects following lumpectomy for breast cancer, fat grafting is an effective method for filling in these defects. Fat grafting is also an option for total breast reconstruction following mastectomy; however, to achieve sufficient breast volume, this is usually a multistage process that requires at least two to four sequential fat grafting procedures.
Buttock augmentation with fat grafting: Many people who desire a fuller, more rounded buttock will opt for a “Brazilian butt lift” which uses fat transfer to provide a more curvaceous buttock without the use of an implant. Liposuction is commonly used to both sculpt the surrounding area and collect the autologous fat to be injected.
Hand rejuvenation with fat grafting: Fat grafting into your hands is effective for adding volume, “plumping up” wrinkled areas, covering underlying vessels and tendons and improving the quality of your skin over time.
As an outpatient procedure, just a couple of hours are needed depending upon the amount of fat that is to be removed and transferred. You can leave the hospital on the same day or sometimes an overnight stay is advised, and in some cases, more than one session is needed. You should stay in South Korea for at least 10-14 days after being discharged for regular check-ups. During this period, your health and results of the procedure are monitored by your surgeon.
The recovery period is different for different areas of your body. After a buttock augmentation, you have to sleep on your stomach or keep standing for at least 4 weeks. Because sitting can dissipate the fat. The shape of the augmented area might appear irregular initially, it will get a proper contour after some time. There will be moderate swelling and bruising at both the donor and the recipient sites for 2 weeks. Your face might appear fat and plump after fat grafting but it will settle down before long. You might suffer from moderate pain for a few days. Pain killers are given to deal with this. Almost 6 months are required for the results to fully show.
Things to consider:
Owing to the increasing success rate, fat grafting is gaining fame in recent years. Fat transfer for breast augmentation has increased by 76% in 2016 while for butt augmentation, a 26% increase has been witnessed. Possible complications can include a blood clot formation and pulmonary embolism leading to the failure of fat grafting. Infections can also be the cause of failed fat grafting.
Fat grafting is an expensive technique as it consists of 2 different procedures. Following are some alternatives to it:
All of the techniques mentioned above involve only one procedure.
