Auto-fat injection is considered among the simple and easy procedures that rarely lead to any serious complications. Where the patient can return to normal life three days after the operation, but has to follow the advices and instructions of the doctor.
The stages of the autologous fat injection process begin with a thorough examination of the patient; the physician examines the patient who is undergoing the operation to identify the areas where fat accumulates (donor area) from which the liposuction will be done, to be injected later into areas that suffer of thinness or wrinkles. Also, the doctor determines the areas where the fat will be injected.
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.
