How do fat injections work?
Fat injections or fat grafting involve taking fat from one part of your body and then injecting them into another part of your body like the cheeks, lips, or chin. It replenishes the skin’s collagen layer, evens out lines and wrinkles, and gives a more vibrant look to the patient.
What areas can be treated with fat injections?
The most common areas being treated with fat injections are frown lines and crows feet.Fat injections can help fill out deep facial wrinkles, creases and furrows,sunken cheeks, skin depressions, and some scarring especially from acne.You can also have fuller and more sensuous lips.
How are fat injections performed?
There are two steps involved in a fat injection. First, the donor site is cleansed and then given anaesthesia. The fat will be harvested through a liposuction canula or tube from the abdomen or hips. It will then be extracted and washed in saline. The damaged fat cells will be removed during this process. After the treatment, the target site is given anaesthesia. The fat cells are then injected with a small syringe into the desired locations such as the cheeks, under the eyes, the lips, or in the mouth area.
How long will the effects of a fat injection last?
The effects of the fat injection will last depending on the individual. There are patients who report fat injections lasting more than a year while patients with fat injections disappearing after three months. In these cases, more injections may be necessary.
