Fat transplantation is a surgical procedure that involves collecting fat cells from one part of the body and injecting them into another part. Thus fat is used as a filler. The usual donor sites are the abdomen, fat formations in the waist and hips. Most often, this procedure is used to correct the face, breasts and buttocks.
When a fatty filler is used for the breast, this is not the operational form of breast augmentation. When done on the buttocks, this is a form of buttock augmentation, also known as Brazilian buttock augmentation (because it was popularized in Brazil).
The advantages of fat transplantation are as follows:
- Used by your own fabric.
- This procedure has a permanent effect.
- Requires an operation with subsequent recovery.
- Only about fifty to sixty percent of the fat used remains, so more than one procedure is usually required.
Fat is collected from identified donor sites using light liposuction, preferably without any pretreatment of donor fat with any form of energy (eg, ultrasound energy), which can damage fat cells. The fat is then processed and cleaned before it is injected into the receiving tissues of the body.
The amount of fat collected and injected depends on the needs of the receiving site and the amount of available fat in donor areas. A face requires a relatively small amount of fat (less than 100 ml), while parts of the body, such as breasts or buttocks, require much more fat (a few hundred ml).
The incisions made to collect fatty tissue and injections are usually small (a few mm) and similar to liposuction cuts. The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia, intravenous hypnotic or general anesthesia, depending on the complexity. This is usually done on an outpatient basis without being in a hospital.
