Fat transfer (transfer of fat cells) involves using the patient’s own fat tissue instead of synthetic (artificial) filler to smooth out wrinkles, add volume to sagging cheeks and cheekbones, nasolabial wrinkles, to enlarge the lips, hand rejuvenation, and also, procedures to correct contour defects arising as a result of injury or muscular dystrophy.
Adipose tissue is usually taken from the abdomen or thigh region. Using a special laboratory technique, that fat is processed and then micro cannulas are injected into the specific region that is to be filled.
Results of these interventions are great, and last up to several years. Through proper processing and transfer, the fat will preserve a maximum number of stem cells in the patient.
A patient who decides on this type of intervention, will go through a detailed medical evaluation which includes:
- Laboratory tests: complete blood count, biochemical parameters of coagulation factors
- Cardiologic examination with EKG
The entire evaluation, which is required for the intervention is carried out at our facility and is included in the cost of the operation.
Fat transfer is usually performed under local anesthetic, and, if appropriate, is combined with analgosedation.
Two to three hours after the intervention, the patient can leave the hospital and return to their daily routine.
Fat transfer is a minimally invasive method, which provides the patient a feeling of complete security. Ephemera such as, mild swelling, bruising, and hardness to the region(s) are completely normal and disappear 5 to 7 days after the intervention.
Fat transfer is a method of rejuvenation that restores fullness to the cheeks, fills and eliminates wrinkles, gives lips a natural discreet volume, and leaves your skin fresh.
