Fat Injection

For the treatment of deep wrinkles and depressions on the face and body, the person’s own fat tissue is taken for the application. The most important advantage of this application is that the patient’s own fat tissue is used.

Fat injection refers to using fat tissue as a filler by collecting it from an area of the body and transferring it to another. Fat Injection is mainly used to correct body contours, reduce the depth of the lines on the aging face, plump and thicken lips, and give a fuller look to slim faces.


What is Fat Injection?

Fat tissue collected from one part of the body is transferred to another body part in the needed amount. Thus, the areas with wrinkles or depressions are treated in the patient. 20-30% of the transferred fat tissue remains permanently in the area where it is injected.

With repeated transfers, the amount of permanent fat tissue in the area can be increased. The disadvantage of the application is that, after the treatment, 70-80% of the transferred fat tissue is absorbed and eliminated by the body within 4-6 months, so two or three sessions may be required.



Tissues are collected with the method called liposuction and filtered in a sterile environment and placed in thin injectors. Without applying too much pressure, the fat tissue is injected into the subcutaneous soft tissue by creating thin channels. This process is repeated until the desired appearance is achieved. It is ill-advised to inject excessive amounts of fat when necessary. This is because it can create an irregular and asymmetrical image after absorption.

After the operation, there will not be any disturbing pain. Mild swelling and bruising may occur at the injection site. Edema and bruising will disappear within 7-10 days. Light massaging of the areas is recommended after the operation. It is good to discuss the time and amount of this massage with your doctor.

Fat injection has advantages and disadvantages compared to other filling methods.



  • First of all, since the person’s own fat tissue is collected, it is much safer in terms of health and there is no risk of allergies.
  • It is more economical than other methods.
  • Thirdly, when the sessions are over, a permanent fullness is achieved.



  • Since a hospital environment is preferred, it is a little more stressful for the patient.
  • It would be ideal if this method is performed by a plastic surgeon following the tissue transfer rules.
  • Swelling and mild bruising may persist longer than filling.
  • Compared to other methods, the application takes longer as well as seeing the results.
