Fat Grafting | Fat Injection

Natural ability to rejuvenate aging skin

Your face deserves the best. As we get older, the volume of the face changes. These changes can mainly be seen around the eyes, cheeks, jaw line and around the mouth. Loss of volume can make us look older. We get sunken cheeks, wrinkles and folds and our skin looks tired and generally less healthy. Everyone is affected by facial fat loss over time. Facial fat is one of the essential elements that keeps us youthful, healthy and vibrant. Loss of volume starts to become visible when we are in our mid-30s and gradually gets worse every year.

Some Fat Grafting

With fat grafting, fat is transferred to your face to fill the resulting cavities, restoring your face to its youthful shape and contours. this procedure involves removing activated fat tissue from another part of your body to use it to restore or enhance volume loss, mainly in the face, breasts and/or hips. fat grafting is mainly used in the medical world for therapeutic purposes to restore trauma or natural asymmetry, including correction of secondary contour defects after breast reconstruction, scar contractions, as well as the treatment of burns or radiodermatitis. This makes fat grafting a tried and tested method that is extremely suitable for cosmetic adjustments to the face, breasts and hips.

Cosmetic surgery

Did you know that studies show that fat transplantation can also help improve the thickness and quality of radiation-damaged tissue and skin? Fat transplantation is a safe operation when performed by a surgeon with extensive experience in cosmetic surgery. For a successful fat transfer with the best results, the surgeon must have a good understanding of the 3-dimensional changes that occur with aging and know what "normal" youthful facial contours look like. This process is very similar to sculpting, which is why it makes a big difference when your treating surgeon has an eye for aesthetic beauty combined with the right expertise.

Fat Grafting | Fat Injection

What happens during a fat grafting procedure?

Fat is harvested from part of your body, washed and purified and then carefully reinjected with needles specially designed for the areas being treated. It may be necessary to repeat this process several times to achieve the desired result. Fat harvesting or 'fat vaccination' is a three-stage process: (a) harvesting (b) purification and transfer (c) and placement.

Harvesting fat cells: together with our doctor, you choose a fat removal area that the doctor will locally anaesthetise. The doctor then makes a small incision at the fat removal site and, using a sterile technique, places a cannula connected to a syringe to gently harvest or "extract" fat (better known as liposuction).

Purification and transfer: As soon as sufficient fat has been harvested, our specialist prepares the fat cells and places the purified fat in small syringes used for fat injections. The purification sometimes requires a centrifuge to centrifuge the fat or a filtration process to remove impurities.

Placement procedurethe body part is prepared where the fat cells are injected... Our specialist works with a needle or cannula that is usually inserted several times into the area and removed again. Each time the needle or cannula is pulled back, a line of fat tissue is carefully secured in natural tissue surfaces. The doctor repeats this procedure until the desired correction is achieved with a grid of grafted fat. Of course, our team will help you before, during and after the procedure by making it as easy and comfortable as possible for you. Our goal: the most natural and beautiful result!

Where is the procedure performed and what type of anaesthesia is used?

Most fat grafting (fat transplantation) procedures are performed in our practice with local anesthesia, so you are awake but feel no discomfort or pain. Of course, it is also possible to undergo this procedure under general anesthesia (full anesthesia) in a certified and accredited surgical center. The choice is always yours. Most patients choose local anesthesia for faster recovery and less costs. Local anesthesia is a less invasive procedure with minimal risks.

Why does fat grafting work so well?

Our facial fat transfer procedure works so well because it is the most natural replacement for facial fat. Restoring lost volume with your own fat gives the most natural rejuvenation results. Your fat cells have an abundance of stem cells. Stem cells have been associated with long-lasting rejuvenation effects, such as clarity of skin, improvement of skin tone and texture and even reduction of pores.

How long will the results remain visible?

Although you immediately see a difference, it takes a while before the fat cells have done their job and the optimal effect is achieved. This process takes several months. The result with about 2-3 months is the final result. It doesn't get any less, but there is a chance that you will still notice a desired increase in fullness, because the fat grafts make the transition from surviving in a new environment to returning to their biological natural ways of storing fat.

Risks and complications

The most important complications are contour irregularities (such as lumps or bumps), no good cosmetic distribution and poor fat removal. All these possible complications are minimized by our experienced fat grafting surgeon.

Recovery time after Fat grafting

Swelling and sometimes bruising are part of the healing phase. The swelling is worst on day 2-4, followed by an accelerated healing process from day 5. Sometimes patients have recovered sufficiently after 1 week and have minimal post-operative swelling. Normally patients need a little more time, after 1 to 2 weeks most of the swelling and sometimes the bruising is resolved. In addition, the cells continue to develop positively over a period of 4-6 weeks. After 6-8 weeks most fat cells are present. Many patients take 4-5 days off to recover, depending on the type of work.
