Everything About Lipofilling

One of the most successful treatment techniques in beauty and anti-aging medicine is autologous fat transfer, often referred to as lipofilling. Skin aging is a natural process that can lead to the formation of wrinkles as well as the sagging of individual parts (e.g. cheeks). Deeper wrinkles usually only become visible around the age of 50. Since skin aging and its visible consequences vary from person to person, younger women and men can also be bothered by the unpleasant changes on the face, neck, and décolleté. A gentle method for facial rejuvenation is treatment with fat transfer in Turkey.

Fat Transfer Operation

The loss of volume in the face,fat Injections in face Turkey, especially in the periorbital area, is a major contributor to aging and is due to the redistribution and atrophy of the adipose tissue present in the face. The “empty” areas of the face can be underfilled by fat transfer surgery in Turkey -fat transfer to face- or the injection of other filling substances. In the course of lipofilling, a certain amount of the patient’s own fat tissue is transferred from one area (donation site) to another part of the body through lipolytic injections and then fat grafting. Despite the obvious simplicity of the treatment, lipofilling in Turkey is a real surgical operation, intended to remodel certain areas of the body, especially the face.

Results of Fat Transfer

Since the results of autologous fat transfer in Turkey are considered to be variable and unpredictable, this procedure needs further refinement. For example, numerous studies have shown that 30-70% of the injected tissue is resorbed by the body within a year. Lipofilling İstanbul is a minimally invasive method for wrinkle treatment and volume correction but processes like fat transfer to hips or fat transfer from stomach to buttocks may need many repetitive operations.

In order to improve the reliability of autologous fat transfers, the individual procedures for obtaining, processing, and injecting autologous fat have been changed again and again over the past few years. For this reason, the experience of the doctor plays an extremely important role in order to avoid rapid absorption of the injected autologous fat.

As with any surgical procedure, the results depend on the technique used, its execution, and the surgeon’s experience. In the field of beauty and anti-aging medicine aimed at body rejuvenationlipofilling İstanbul is indicated for patients with the following problems:

  • Particularly deep wrinkles and furrows,
  • Nasolabial folds,
  • Eye wrinkles,
  • Dark circles under the eyes, which are treated with fat grafting under eyes.
  • Lipofilling in Turkey is also used to support blepharoplasty, as well as rhinoplasty, and breast and buttock augmentation.

How is a Fat Transfer Procedure Performed?

In general, the body’s own fat cells can be removed from all areas of the body that can be excessed easily, called localized fat deposits. These are usually the abdomen, hips, thighs, knees, upper arms or the underside of the chin. Fat is a filler substance with ideal properties: it integrates naturally into the tissue, is autologous and is 100% biocompatible. In theory, the advantage over synthetic fillers is that autologous fat is fully biocompatible, as it is fatty tissue taken from the patients themselves.

Since stem cells are also contained in adipose tissue, fat transplants in Turkey not only have an underfilling effect but also have regenerative potential. The increase in volume with the help of lipofilling İstanbul is not only suitable for treating wrinkles but is also used in other aesthetic and plastic procedures. This includes breast augmentation with fat injection to breast as an alternative to augmentation with an implant. On average, the breast volume can be increased by half a cup to one cup size with the help of an autologous fat transplant. In addition, lipofilling in Turkey can be used for lip correction, fat grafting lips.

How is Fat Injection With Stem Cell Technology Performed?

It used to be thought that most stem cells came from the bone marrow. It is now known that the amount of stem cells in fat is four times higher than in bone marrow. Therefore, during the injection, the rich stem cells separated from the fat can be applied too.

A portion of the fat taken from the person via liposuction is sent to a special stem cell laboratory and the stem cells are separated here and then injected into the areas where the fat injection in Istanbul is performed. Another option is to mix the stem cells obtained during the surgery with the patient’s fat and inject them into the desired areas.

What About Fat

Fat is an active and dynamic tissue composed of different cell types: adipocytes, fibroblasts , smooth muscle cells, endothelial cells, and adipogenic progenitor cells called “preadipocytes”. The vitality of these cells is important to maintain the results of lipofilling İstanbul over the long term. It is generally accepted that less traumatic methods of fat collecting contribute to increased vitality of adipocytes and thus longer preservation of the transplanted fat tissue. As far as fat cell processing is concerned, low-speed centrifugation appears to be better than high-speed centrifugation, gravity separation, or filtration.

Effectiveness of Lipofilling

Another fundamental limitation of lipotransfer is that the amount of fat transplanted is closely related to the amount of available fat tissue in the patient. Therefore, patients with small complexions are not suitable for this form of treatment.

Lipofilling in Turkey involves collecting, liposuction, fat tissue from a donor region of the body and then injecting this fat tissue into the recipient region in order to correct any dents or to add volume. The adipose tissue deposited is kept alive by contact with vascularized structures, thus guaranteeing a satisfactory aesthetic result.

The effectiveness of lipofilling İstanbul depends primarily on the following factors:

  • Damage to fat cells during the aspiration and centrifugation phase, which can affect their vitality and survival,
  • Vascularization of the tissue into which these cells are injected. It is known that apoptotic (dying) cells release cytokines and attract macrophages, which induce growth factors and play an important role in the regeneration of damaged tissue. For this reason, the proportion of damaged adipocytes may also be important in triggering a fibrotic response to an inflammatory response.

During and After the Fat Grafting/Transfer

The entire procedure is usually carried out as part-time inpatient treatment, takes 2 to 3 hours and can be performed under general anesthesia. Since this procedure is characterized by its low level of invasiveness, the postoperative course is usually free of significant complications and quite simple for the patient.

The regions from which the fat tissue was harvested can be supported with an elastic bandage, which ensures better control of some local complications, such as swelling and bruising, while any remaining pain is treated by the doctor with appropriate drugs.

The recipient sites can also become swollen and painful. However, these side effects usually go away on their own over the course of a few weeks. The results of an autologous fat injection in Turkey can be seen a few days after the treatment, sometimes several treatment sessions are necessary.

As mentioned, the long-term stability of the result depends on the success of the technique, i.e. on the amount of transplanted fatty tissue that is accepted and adequately supplied by the recipient tissue.

Lipofilling involves a few complications, which fortunately are rare or temporary:

  • Subcutaneous ecchymoses,
  • Hyperpigmentation,
  • Asymmetries,
  • Irregular skin texture,
  • Occurrence of keloids.

Frequently Asked Questions About Fat Transfer
