Fat Grafting Procedure

As we grow older our face become more and more affected by the sun, gravity and use of expression muscles (chewing, smiling, etc). Deep tissues loose the ability to maintain a young look and expression marks appear on our faces. Fat grafting can help you fill the defects and regain younger appearance. It can be used to fill expression folds, sunken checks, scars and lips. This procedure is not sufficient to treat deep defects like multiple grooves around the mouse of heavy smokers. It can be done as isolated treatment or as a combination with laser, facelift and botox.

During the procedure the surgeon performs a liposuction from various body parts like thighs, tummy and buttocks and then injects the fat into selected areas needs to be filled. After disinfection of the donor and recipient areas, they are being sedated using local anesthetics. Sedative drugs also can be used, if so you may need an escort to avoid driving under their influence. For liposuction the surgeon uses wide needle or canola. After a short treatment the fat is injected to the desired site. The recipient area is usually bandaged. In order to fill sunken chicks often over filling is required because of absorption process of some of the fat injected. This can make your face appear over swollen immediately after the operation.

If the area treated is extensive it is advisable to restrain from activities after the treatment. Although most of the patients can go back to their daily activities right away. There might be redness, swelling and small hemorrhages around both the donor and the recipient sites. The severity of those symptoms usually depends on the magnitude of the procedure. It is advisable to avoid sun exposure until the above disappear (after approximately 48 hours). There is no limitation to use make-up. The swelling can last for weeks especially if the area is large. Every operation has its ricks. The fat being taken from the patient`s body doesn`t cause allergic responses. There is a small chance of infection.

You must remember that the effect of the injection is only temporary. Due to their biological nature the injected materials disassemble by the body. The duration of the effect depends on genetics, age, skin quality, life style and the area being filled. There are selected cases where the results lasted for a year, but in most cases half of the effect disappears after 3-6 month.

Planing on having fat grafting procedure in CL?
Here is some General Information about CL:

Chile La Micro

Micro = transit/local buses. The word is the contraction of Microbus. Larger cities have bus routes to get around for a very affordable price. There are no maps with all the routes so a little bit of Spanish and the audacity to ask around can get you places effectively. Recently changed to a new more modern system in Santiago only.

CL fat grafting - News update:
The April 2008 edition of ‘Drug Safety Update’ from the MHRA discusses the availability of further evidence to suggest that the long-term use of combined oral contraceptives or progestogen-only injectable contraceptives is associated with a small increased risk of cervical cancer. It refers to the findings from a large analysis of data from epidemiological studies (Lancet 2007; 370:1609-21 – see link above), which found that: • The current use of combined oral contraceptives (COCs) for 5 years or longer is accompanied by an increased risk of cervical cancer (relative risk 1.90 [95% CI 1.69–2.13]). • Women who use COCs for 5 years from age 20 years have increased cumulative incidence of cervical cancer at age 50 years from 38 cases per 10,000 (in never-users) to 40 cases per 10,000 (i.e., an extra two cases per 10,000) • Women who use COCs for 10 years from age 20 years have increased cumulative incidence of cervical cancer at age 50 years from 38 cases per 10,000 (in never-users) to 45 cases per 10,000 (i.e., an extra seven cases per 10,000) • Risk falls when COCs are stopped; after about 10 years, risk reaches the same level as that for never-users of COCs. • The risk of cervical cancer in users of progestogen-only injectable contraceptives (i.e., Depo-Provera and Noristerat) may be similar to that for COC users. The MHRA article notes that no epidemiological data on cervical cancer risk associated with use of Evra® (a combined hormonal contraceptive patch), NuvaRing®, (a combined hormonal intravaginal contraceptive), progestogen-only pills, Implanon® (a progestogen-only implant), or Mirena® (a progestogen-only intrauterine device) are currently available. It discusses cervical screening as a method of reducing the risk of cervical cancer, and the upcoming introduction of routine HPV vaccination. The MHRA has produced an information sheet and Question and Answer document for users of COCs advising them of the latest evidence regarding risk of cervical cancer and what it means for them; please see the links above for further information.
