Fat Injection

Fat Injection

One of the main causes of aging is the apparent loss of fat in your face. By using the Liposuction Technique, fat can be harvested from one part of the body and then reinjected into another part of the body. This is different from collagen because it is not a foreign substance to your body; it will not be rejected by your immune system.

It is effective in reducing the signs of aging around the eyes, mouth, cheeks, and other areas of the face. However, deep scars, congenital deformities, and other post surgical defects can also be treated.

The procedure is almost always preformed in the doctors office, and take anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes.  More extensive procedures such as injections into the lips, cheeks, or folds between nose and cheeks, sedation may be required.

Discomfort associated with injectables is normally relatively mild. In many cases, fat injections are performed without anesthesia.  However some patients may find it painful depending on the site of injection. For instance, the area of skin around the lips is one of the more sensitive parts of the body. Ask your physician about this.

Recently a new methods of fat injection has gained popularity. The procedure is called lipostructure.  This procedure attempts to keep the extracted fat cells alive. The cells are taken from the patient’s body, and placed into the new area much like traditional fat injections. These  fat cells are kept alive, and a blood supply is established to the cells. The thinking behind lipostructure is that by keeping the fat cells alive, they will not be reabsorbed into the body making the results last longer. This procedure is relatively new, and more extensive. It also requires very specific training on the part of the surgeon.
