FAT INJECTIONS

  • This procedure is being used by our Specialized Doctors to enhance the cheeks, augment the lips, correct facial wrinkles and correct body deformities or depressions.

  • A needle attached to a syringe is inserted into any area, which has a thick layer of fat such as in the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, etc.

  • Fat cells are aspirated into the syringe, then carefully injected into the area to be treated.

  • This process may need to be repeated for an optimum result. There are no problems of rejection or allergic reactions.
    Part of the transplanted fat tends to shrink.
    This is why more fat volume than needed is usually injected by Dr. Fanous.

What happens after ?

  • You will usually be required to wear an elastic dressing for several days following the procedure to provide support and to maintain your new shape.

  • Most patients experience some bruising, minimal discomfort and swelling which may last for a few weeks.

  • Most patients resume normal activity or return to work within a few days following surgery.

  • It takes up to six months before the final result of surgery is apparent. However, a vast majority of patients are functional and presentable in 1 to 2 weeks.

What are the Risks ?

There are risks as in any surgical procedure, such as infection, bleeding, scarring, skin irregularities, etc.
