Also known as Fat Harvesting, is a cosmetic surgery involving the movement of fat from one part of the body to another. Fat injections and lipofilling is a procedure that uses a person’s own fat to fill in irregularities and grooves, primarily in the face, around the temples, eyes, chin, and lips. This is now a well-established technique that was perfected in the early nineties.
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.
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.
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.
