Fat injections (transplant) treatment also known as fat transfer or fat grafting surgery is a form of cosmetic surgery that involves transferring fat from certain areas of your body in which you have excess fat into the areas that may be lacking in volume. This is a safe, long-lasting, tolerable, and natural way of restoring subtle volume and shape, as well as rejuvenating certain areas of your body.
Fat injection has a wide range of application in cosmetic procedures. During the procedure, your cosmetologist gathers fat from one part of the body using a special suction cannula. Once enough fat is harvested from the donor area, the same is cleansed off impurities by spinning it in a centrifuge. Next, the cleansed fat is inserted into the ""needy"" areas using an injection needle, which is typically pushed in and pulled out of the areas several times. Because of this constant insertion, a 'grid' of threads of fat graft is formed in the areas, which are then massaged by the surgeon to create a satisfactory contour. Post the procedure, a dressing is placed on to the treated area.
Swelling is one of the most common after-effects of this treatment, which vanishes off within a couple of weeks. This entire procedure takes approximately 1 to one and a half hours' of time and is performed by cosmetic surgeon under local anaesthesia. Since this is a minimally invasive procedure, so people undergoing this form of treatment can resume their normal life within 2 weeks.
