Why Fat Injection is not always successful?

Fat injection described as injections of fats tissue on components of the face. This application can offer an outlook aligned with the patient’s realistics expectations. The sunken regions of the cheeks,forehead, cheek line, lips line, tip of the chin, hips and legs are examples of areas of fat transfer applications. 

Fats, specially taken from the tummy area with liposuction. Waist and hip regions also regularly favored for fat injection. Fat tissue may taken from the legs and arms of the patient. Since no incision made during these procedures, no visible scars seen after the application.  

The more fat tissue transferred to their new location survives, the more permanent the fat injection will be. Thanks to some recently developed devices, the fat injection performed to the relevant area without contacting air. Within this development since the tissue loss is decreased, the durability of the fat tissue is also prolonged. 

This is the reason why this treatment is superior to filling materials that contain hyaluronic acid. The rate at which fat cells remain visible depends on the surgical material used, the way the fat is taken and administered, and the transfer of the fat through various processes. 

Important Note on Fat Injection

An average of up to %40 of the transferred fat tissue can dissolve after 6 months. Due to this fact that you should always consult with healthcare professionals. Also, keep in mind that in some cases, repetition of the treatment may be required.
