What is lipoinjection?
Lipoinjection is injecting fat collected from certain parts of the body to increase the volume of certain areas. Lipoinjection provides good results when fat ratio of the face decreases, on thin people and to fill fine lines on the face and this method can be applied to other areas as well.
Where can lipoinjection be applied?
Lipoinjection can be applied to under eye area, fine lines between nose and lip, cheekbone, tip of the chin, cheeks, genital area, penis, breast and butt. Additionally, lipoinjection can be applied to reduce leg curvature.
Generally, fat collected from belly and butt (immobile areas) with low pressure injector and injected to transplant area under local anaesthesia (general anaesthesia is applied if application area is large). Lipoinjection can be completed in short time and patients are discharged couple of hours later to rest at home. Patients can go back to their daily lives 3 days after the surgery, but they should avoid heavy activities. There can be swelling and bruises after the operation and these will go back to normal in 10 days. Difference will be visible 1 month after the lipoinjection operation. Permanent results can be observed 6 months after the surgery. After permanent results, patients will feel better in psychologic and social way and patients will no longer experience self-confidence problem.
Is lipoinjection permanent?
Permanence of lipoinjection depends of various factors. Fat cell collection technique, injection region, fat collection region are the factors that affect permanence of the operation. Also, mobility of application area is another factor that affect permanence. While this operation is relatively more permanent in immobile regions, it is not possible to achieve high permanence in mobile regions like lips. 40% of injected fats are permanent in 6 months. Fat cells that exist after 6 months are permanent.
