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 the 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 lipo injection be applied?
Lipoinjection can be applied to the under-eye area, fine lines between the nose and lip, cheekbone, the tip of the chin, cheeks, genital area, penis, breast, and butt. Additionally, lipo injections can be applied to reduce leg curvature.
Generally, fat is collected from the belly and butt (immobile areas) with a low-pressure injector and injected into the transplant area under local anesthesia (general anesthesia is applied if the application area is large). Lipoinjection can be completed in a short time and patients are discharged a 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. The difference will be visible 1 month after the lipo injection operation. Permanent results can be observed 6 months after the surgery. After permanent results, patients will feel better psychologically and socially and patients will no longer experience self-confidence problems.
Is lipoinjection permanent?
The permanence of lipo injection depends on various factors. Fat cell collection technique, injection region, and fat collection region are the factors that affect the permanence of the operation. Also, mobility of the application area is another factor that affects 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.
