How to prepare for the procedure of fat injection in the face

Fat injection in the face, in our center, we do not care about completing the operation as soon as possible, but our importance is focused on the patient’s health even after the operation. Therefore, the patient is asked before performing the fat injection process in the face to do the necessary medical tests and make sure that the patient does not suffer from any health problems such as high Blood pressure, sugar, heart disease, blood thinners, etc.

Anesthesia type

General anesthesia is preferred in most cases of fat injection in the face, but local anesthesia can also be used in cases of liposuction and injection of small amounts of fat.

Injection process steps

After anesthesia, the area from which the liposuction is to be done is injected with a saline solution, to which a local anesthetic is added to reduce the pain after the operation, as well as a substance that reduces the occurrence of bleeding during the operation – adrenaline – and all of this is done in certain proportions according to each area. Then, through a small opening less than ½ cm, the necessary liposuction is performed, then the fat is processed, filtered and deposited in several ways, and then re-injected into the place to be reshaped using a specific syringe designated for that.

Often, larger amounts of fat are injected than required, as studies have shown that 50% of the injected fat is absorbed from the body and melts within a month and up to 3 months from the date of surgery.

operation time
The process takes between half to an hour and a half, depending on the amount of fat that will be injected, and it may be a little more.

post surgery
No changes or ligaments are placed after the operation, and it is recommended to make ice packs for 7 days and then warm water compresses after that to reduce the chance of swelling.

After the operation
The patient is discharged from the hospital on the same day of the operation and the patient begins to practice his normal life gradually within 2-3 days.

Pain after fat grafting is bearable, and some painkillers can be taken. Also, there may be a feeling of numbness in the skin that may last for some time, and swelling and bluish skin may occur, and in most cases, it does not last more than 7-10 days.

Are you still afraid of injections, my dear?
