Benefits of fat injection

The results of fat injections are lasting, safe, and natural. Fat transfer and injection is a non-invasive way to achieve facial rejuvenation.
The importance of fat injection in the operating room
Among the materials used to fill lines or fillers, fat is a very good option, which is a safe method without significant complications. The only problem that may rarely occur is asymmetry and the need for repair, which is not a significant and irreparable complication. To inject fat, fat is removed from the body and must be washed properly to achieve the desired result.
In general, if the fat preparation process is not done properly, the fat cells will be destroyed, so there will be no difference after the injection. Usually, people who do this injection on an outpatient basis and in the office have this problem. Therefore, the fat injection should be done in the operating room with complete anesthesia facilities so that the patient can take the necessary fat and inject it into the skin with equipped devices, after preparing the fat.
Talk to your doctor about the advantages and disadvantages mentioned before performing the fat transfer.
