What is Fat Grafting?

If facial fat is lost or absorbed as a result of diet or aging, the facial shape may become irregular and appear older. Facial contouring surgery and thread lifting can help with this, while fat grafting is a popular method for increasing the overall volume of the face.

Fat grafting is a surgical procedure in which excess fat is harvested from high-fat areas, such as the thighs or abdomen, and selectively injected into areas that lack volume.Typical areas include the forehead, under the eyes, cheekbones, temple, chin, temple and nasolabial folds. In order to create a youthful and lovely face shape, each person's troubled areas are improved, such as removing sagging curves, filling the areas which lack volume, and lifting the center of the facial area that droops downwards.

As long as the transplanted fat cells do not disappear or die, the effect is semi-permanent because the fat cellsare easily extracted from our own bodies and does not cause foreignbodyreactions.

Furthermore, because fat tissue is not a hard solid, it can be applied to any part of the body, and the operation is simple and quick, allowing the patient to quickly resume daily activities.

It is especially advantageous that the likelihood of side effects is low because the there are less chances of rejection when compared with other injectable foreign substances.

Surgery Procedure

What Distinguishes Braun's Fat Grafting Surgery from Others?

In the past, the extracted fat mass was transplanted into the area of concern, which was unnatural and did not last long after surgery. Natural and delicate techniques are possible at Braun because fat tissue is transplanted in cell units rather than simple fat masses for more effective fat transplantation.

In addition, using Braun's unique three-dimensional multilayer injection method, multiple layers are injected layer by layer to increase survival rate and volume, enabling natural, smooth skin without bumps. This results in not only natural but also excellent engraftment rates, as well as the improvement in skin elasticity.

It usually takes about two to three months for the fat to engraft.  After fat grafting, it typically takes two to three months for the fat to engraft. Therefore, it is advised to avoid an excessive diet while fat is being engrafted. Losing or maintaining 2-3 kg of weight is not a big deal, but if you are considering on losing weight, it is recommended that you do it before fat grafting. 

- That is determined by the location of the fat grafting procedure.In the case of Botox, fat grafting is possible even if you have had Botox because it has no effect on fat grafting.However, in the case of filler, it is possible, but it is recommended that you consult with a specialist before thesurgery, due to the risk ofinflammation. 

- If you try to improve skin sagging with fat grafting alone, the amount needed will be excessive, which it will eventually deviate from the desired location, deepening the wrinkles.
- When fat is transplanted to the appropriate area in an appropriate amount within a safe range, it creates a three-dimensional effect on the face and makes the face appear smaller. 

Yes, fat grafting is possible regardless of skin thickness. 

It is not recommended to apply cold or warm packs after surgery because the pressure and the temperature can interfere with the formation of fat cells and may cause deformation. If the surgical site is extremely hot or uncomfortable, it is recommended to use an ice pack for a short period of time to reduce the heat sensation.
