Fats taken from areas determined to be excessive in the body are injected into the face. Fat injection to the face is done to give the face a youthful expression. It is a skin rejuvenation procedure.

What is Facial Fat Injection?

As we age, significant changes occur in our face. E.g; A certain part of the fat in the face area tends to decrease over time. There may also be an increase in fat in some areas. This oil imbalance can deepen the dimples and lines on the face. The method that removes the signs of aging in the face area is called facial fat injection. Fat injection to the face should be performed by specialist surgeons. In the process of fat injection to the face, the person’s own fat cells are used. With the micro grafting technique, facial rejuvenation is provided with volume changes. It is the most commonly used area for facial fat injection. Apart from this, fat injection can be applied to other parts of the body such as hands, neck, hips and breasts.

How is Fat Injection to the Face Made?

In the process of oil injection to the face, the person’s own oil is used. With the liposuction technique, the excess fat is taken from the appropriate areas of the body such as the abdomen and waist. According to the request of the person, regional thinning processes can also be applied to different areas of the body during fat removal. With the special tools and degreasing technique used, the least damage is done to the fat cells. Then the extracted fat is subjected to a special process. The fat taken for the facial fat injection process is centrifuged and purified. These fat grafts are enriched with stem cells. After this procedure, it is injected into the facial areas to be corrected.

With this method called “nanofat injection”, stem cells are transferred to the face along with fat cells. In this way, a distinctive shine and radiance is achieved in the quality of the skin covering the face. The process can be repeated several times in cases where the volume is lacking or in order to achieve the targeted result. Fat injection to the face is usually done with local anesthesia; however, general anesthesia can also be used depending on the possibility of performing different procedures or the condition of the patient. Depending on the size of the procedure, the type of anesthesia may change. Although the fat injection process to the face varies according to the size and number of the areas to be corrected, it takes about 60 minutes on average.

To Whom Can Facial Fat Injection Be Applied?

Fat injection to the face can be applied to anyone who does not have any circulation problems, has wrinkles, sunken faces and wants to rejuvenate their face. It is also an effective method for people who want their cheekbones or chin tip to be more prominent. Since the person’s own fat tissue is used in the fat injection process, there is no reaction or rejection.

How Does the Healing Process Happen After Fat Injection to the Face?

Facial fat injection, which has the aesthetics of adding volume to the face, is an easy-to-apply painless procedure. After the oil injection to the face, the effect is immediately visible. It is not expected for a while to see the result of the procedure. Since the person’s own fat is injected through a special process, no side effects are observed. Since there is no incision or suture in the fat injection process, the recovery time is very short. Generally, there are no conditions such as bruising or swelling. But sometimes there may be very little swelling and bruising in the first days. After a day’s rest, it is possible to return to work life.

Is Fat Injection Permanent?

Although the duration of the effect of facial fat injection varies from person to person, it is usually 2-3 years. Since the oil used in oil injection to the face, which is a very reliable aesthetic procedure, is a natural substance, there is some melting under all conditions. This fat melting rate varies from person to person.
