Fat transfer (also known as fat grafting is a long lasting solution that restores natural-looking volume to the face, contouring the shape of the face, as well as improving skin quality. Facial fat grafting uses your body’s natural fat cells to fill in sunken cheeks, wrinkles, and laugh lines. Fat transfer injections have shown to have a beneficial, rejuvenating effect on ageing or damaged skin (sun damage, discolorations). Nanofat Cells within the fat grafts are capable of “repairing” damaged tissue and are presumed to stimulate the skin cells to produce substances that improve skin elasticity and deposition of essential structural proteins. It also has a positive effect on scars as it makes them less visible. 

Fat Transfer Overview

  • A donor location (usually the abdomen, buttocks, or thighs) with an ample amount of fat is chosen
  • Fat cells are extracted from the donor location using liposuction techniques
  • Fat cells are carefully preserved and prepared for reinsertion
  • Nanocube— For the injection of the fat, we use the lipocube. The Lipocube Nano processes fat tissue in a closed sterile system with patented specific structural geometry blades coupled with a flow pattern enabling partial filtration of fibrous material. The processed fat contains fibers with regenerative cells, resulting in rapid revascularization of the fat in the injected area, thus very good graft uptake.

Advantages?

  • Very long-lasting effect.
  • A completely natural material.
  • Day surgery, minimal discomfort and a short recovery.
  • Minimally invasive, with a low risk of complications.
  • Small scars at the donor site and no additional scars at the recipient site.
  • Improvement at both the recipient site and the area from where fat is harvested.









Disadvantages?

  • Surgical procedure is necessary with some discomfort caused by extraction of fat from the donor site.

What Can I Expect Before My Fat Grafting Procedure?

When determining if undergoing facial fat grafting is right for you, Dr. Adan will examine your medical records and identify possible donor locations from which to extract fat cells from.

What Can I Expect After My Fat Transfer?

After fat transfer you can expect mild swelling and bruising around the donor site and treatment area. Depending on the extent of your procedure, these side effects may last for a few weeks. You can usually return to work and daily activities shortly after undergoing fat grafting. However, it is suggested that you get plenty of rest in the initial days of recovery.
