Fat injection is the process of transferring fat with special methods from one part of the body to another with special cannulas.
It is possible to apply this on all the appropriate areas needed in the body. Cheek, cheekbones, gonion region, hands, breasts, legs, etc.
The injected fat cells can survive in the region where they are transferred at various rates. This rate varies from person to person, but may be 20-50 percent. The permanence rate varies depending on where fat injection is applied. In immobilized areas such as the cheek area, the body remains more stable after injection, while in moving areas such as the leg region has lower permanency rate.
The duration of fat keeping in the body after the fat injection is determined after about 6 months. Sometimes a second or third injection is needed.
