Lipofilling & Stem Cells

This is the newest chapter on rejuvenating medicine and surgery. The most promissing tool in our hands as beauty physicians. We use it as friendly filler, as biological regenerator and as tissue quality improver.We use it in the face, breasts, hands, arms, legs, buttocs and trunk and we absolutelly love it.

Here re some details:

What is Fat injection?
Among the biologic fillers, the most preferred is the person’s own adipose tissue. With this method, which we may also call fat transplantation, fat tissues received from abdominal, waist, thighs, are transferred under the skin e by special injectors; thus fullness and harmony in facial contour are ensured in facial regions such as lips, cheek bones, chin tip, and deep wrinkles are removed by providing volume. While the person’s own fat tissue is received, along with the fat cells, healthy stem cells are also taken and are injected to the person. Thus, by the stimulating and revitalizing effect of fresh stem cells, freshness, liveliness, and brightness are obtained also in the skin structure of the region injected. Thus, fat tissue injections can be seen as the person’s having a self-vaccination of youth. Inside the injected fat there are numerous important active cells that do miracles..

Why is our own tissue the best filler?
Other fillers (such as collagen, injected silicone, suture materials), used in the treatment of facial wrinkles or collapse, sagging may lead to allergic reactions, and their infection risks are much more compared to fat. Moreover, by some fillers, extremely poor, unnatural outcomes may arise. After fat tissue infections, no allergic reactions are observed. Infection risk is very low. Due to these reasons, surgeons and patients should prefer biological fillers instead of artificial fillers, which are expensive and which may arise many unsolicited outcomes such as infection, abscess formation, wound opening.

How is fat injection applied?
While this procedure is applied, regions, from which fat will be taken and regions to be injected are numbed under local anaesthesia. After the fat tissue is taken by a thin liposuction cannula, it is processed and transferred to the recipient region by special injectors. During the procedure, no pain and hurt are felt, and it is a short process.

When can a person return to her/his normal life?
Pain is very mild or is not felt. Swelling or bruises, which may form, recover automatically in 5 – 7 days. In this period, make-up can be performed for the camouflage of the bruises. The final result if one does not wish for a two stage procedure,( the result that will last forever), will mature in three weeks (21 days at least)

Can fat injections be combined with other injections?
This technique may be applied together with skin renewal procedures (laser, dermabrasion, and rejuvenation procedures such as chemical peeling), and/or facial lift operations (someting that we usually prefer in our clinical day to day procedures).

What are the advantages and disadvantages of fat injections?
The most important advantage of the technique is that a dramatic facial rejuvenation is obtained without surgical cut and suture. Moreover, it is a procedure, which does not keep the person away from the social life, and which does not need long cares and dressing after the operation. It is a non-invasive procedure. The person may return back her/his daily life right after the procedure. And its disadvantage is the requirement for repeating the procedure, if needed, and for taking tissue (fat) from the patient each time (although non injected fat tissues can be stored in special deep freezers)..
