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.

Here is some General Information about MI:

Michigan See

Michigan is blessed with many natural beauties. Primary on that list are its Great Lakes (much of Superior, Michigan, and Huron, and a little bit of Erie), the waters of which are even depicted on official maps of the state. The Upper Peninsula region contains many of Michigan's natural wonders, including the Pictured Rocks, Mackinac Island, Isle Royale, Tahquamenon Falls, the Porcupine Mountains, and the Seney National Wildlife Refuge. The Lower Peninsula has expansive forests, rivers, and inland lakes in the north (such as Huron and Manistee National Forests), humongous sand dunes (such as at Sleeping Bear Dunes), and countless miles of beautiful shoreline. In the autumn, "color tours" of the changing leaves in northern Michigan are popular.

MI fat grafting - Tip of the day:
When will the sutures used during Fat Grafting be removed?
Sutures are not needed most of the time during fat grafting. The use of sutures and their removal depends on the surgeon and the region from which the fat is being removed. The doctors at MI(Michigan) prefer to avoid stitches until it becomes inevitable. Even in cases where stitches are needed, they prefer to use dissolvable stitches so there is no need to remove them.

MI fat grafting - News update:
The case of a woman who died following childbirth due to a drug administration error has been reported widely today in the press. Mayra Cabrera, a 30-year old nurse, suffered a fatal heart attack within three hours of giving birth to a healthy son; this was found to be as a result of intravenous administration of anaesthetic which was intended for use as an epidural. According to a report by the Telegraph, a midwife at the Great Western Hospital in Swindon allegedly attached a drip bag containing bupivacaine for epidural administration to an intravenous drip in her arm. The Swindon and Marlborough NHS Trust had previously admitted liability but, following a police inquiry, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) decided not to bring charges. However, the CPS will now re-examine the case, after an inquest jury found the trust to be responsible for unlawful killing. It is believed to be the first such finding against an NHS trust, rather than a named person. The jury decided specifically that sub-standard storage of drugs in the maternity unit was to blame for her death. The hearing had been told that storage of the drug in the delivery suites was "chaotic", and did not meet requirements. The coroner involved in the case said he would be writing to the Health Secretary to recommend a series of changes, in particular the introduction of epidural use-only equipment. He would also be writing to the trust to recommend improvements in storage systems, training and administration in the maternity unit. The Telegraph report says that the trust involved had introduced a policy to store bupivacaine in locked cupboards following previous incidents, but this had been ignored following a move to a new site.
