After anesthesia, the doctor sucks fat from the donor area by Vaser technology, the doctor then purifies the extracted fat through a special device, this device expels blood and fluids and separates them from fat, so the doctor gets pure fat that is injected in areas that suffer of thinness or wrinkles.

In the final stage of the operation, the physician’s assistants place the extracted fat in very fine needles, so that the doctor gradually injects these needles into the targeted areas, until the amount to be injected is injected. The patient is discharged from hospital on the same day and can return to normal life within two or three days.
