Fat Injection – Fat Transfer in Dubai


As we age, our skin loses its fullness and freshness. This is due to natural as well as environmental factors. Naturally, because of the forces of gravity, loss of collagen and aging and environmental factors such as sun exposure, smoking and poor diet can all cause the face to look sunken and hollow.
Creams and ointments claim to replenish the youthfulness but they seldom live up to the promise. What instantly works to add volume and life to the face are Fat injections. Fat injections in Dubai are now helping thousands of people regain a youthful and ripe look. It is a process whereby fat taken from the person’s own body is injected back into various areas.
After all, many of us have an uneven distribution of fat in the body- there are some places where we wish we didn’t have fat and others where we wish we did. No one likes to have extra fat and flab on the belly or underneath the arms- sometimes fat harvested from certain regions can be used to add plumpness and volume in other regions such as the face and cheeks. With aging, the tissues that plump up the skin begin to break down. This causes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Fat injections, non-surgically and non-invasively help to improve the effects of aging.
Fat Transfer in Dubai have becoming increasingly popular due to their instant results and the fact that they provide a temporary solution to people wanting to achieve a smoother, more youthful look without the risk of incisions or a long recovery period.

  • Giving volume and fullness to lips and cheeks
  • Creating improved facial balance
  • Boosts one’s self confidence and self-esteem
  • Gives a youthful appearance

How the fat injection process works?

Fat injections are usually a quick procedure that take between 30 minutes to an hour. There is minimal pain as anesthesia is used to numb the area where fat will be taken from and where it will be harvested. Fat is taken from donor areas either through a needle or through suction. The fat is then treated through a centrifuge and injected back into the treatable areas. The treatment may cause puffiness temporarily following the treatment.

When you can resume to daily routine?

With this treatment, you can return to normal activities soon after the treatment. Expect to have bruising, swelling or redness in both donor area and treated area which lasts a few weeks. It is important to follow your doctor’s recommended post-op instructions to make sure that the recovery process goes smooth.

Risks of fat injections:

The risks of attaining any allergic reaction through fat injections or fat transfer are minimal as fat is taken from your own body however as with any other surgery there is a small possibility of developing an infection or some other complication. This depends on the individual’s body and their personal reaction to the fat injection.

How long lasting the results of fat injections are?

Patients should know that the results of fat injections are temporary. The body eventually reabsorbs the fat so follow-up treatments are necessary to sustain the results. Surgical procedures such as a face lift provide a longer lasting result for wrinkle and fine line removal. Fat injections are best for those who want a quick, comfortable and easy procedure with a minimum recovery period. The results of fat injections are variable. Mostly, patients see half of the fullness vanishing within three to six months after treatment. To prolong the results, additional treatments are required. If you do not continue with the treatments you will notice their appearance going back to the way in was pre-treatment.
Fat injections are rapidly growing in popularity, the trend started from the media but has now trickled down to the masses. If you want to add volume, plump and fullness to your cheeks, lips or even hands then a consultation with the expert and skilled cosmetic surgeons at Dubai Cosmetic Surgery will assure you whether this is the right procedure for you. And the best part is that the results are visible within a short period of time!




Preparation for the fat transfer procedure is quite simple and our plastic surgeon will guide you how you can prepare for the procedure during consultation. Generally the patient needs to make alterations in the medications (if he or she is taking any) as the surgeon recommends, quit smoking, drinking and the drugs that cause blood thinning prior to procedure.
The results of fat injection are not permanent but are long lasting. This is because body absorbs some amount of fat with the passage of time and therefore follow-up treatments are required to sustain the results. In simple, you can’t get permanent results from single treatment but follow-ups help you to maintain the results.
You should expect slight discomfort and pain after any cosmetic surgery procedure. Fat injections also cause pain but our plastic surgeons prescribe medications to overcome this pain quickly. The pain caused by fat injections is well tolerable for most of the patients.
In most of the cases, procedure is performed under local anesthesia. So, you will be awake during procedure if local anesthesia is used in your case.
No, because of the affect of anesthesia you can’t drive to your home yourself after the procedure. So, it is recommended to bring someone with you, who can take you to home safely.
The time required by swelling and bruising to subside after procedure varies from patient to patient. Usually, these symptoms begin to resolve at the end of first week after surgery they may take 2 to 4 weeks to resolve completely.
Usually it is permitted to take bath or shower a day after the procedure but it is recommended to discuss this matter with surgeon during consultation.
Your own body fat is used in this procedure. The fat is usually harvested from those areas where you have excess of fat like thighs and abdomen. Fat can’t be taken from areas where there are lots of fibrous tissues or the fat has been suctioned before.
