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 injections 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
