How is the procedure performed?

Face rejuvenation with fat transfer in Dubai is a simple lunch-hour procedure that takes about an hour to complete. It comprises the following key steps;

Step 1: First of all, local anesthesia is used to numb your skin for fat extraction. At Dubai Cosmetic Surgery Clinic, we make use of VASER Lipo for the extraction of fat from the body as it only targets fat cells without affecting the surrounding tissue.

Step 2: Next, the surgeon prepares the fat to ensure that the fat injected into your face is healthy and viable.

Step 3: Your face is thoroughly cleansed to ensure there are absolutely no traces of dirt, debris, and makeup.

Step 4: Afterwards, local anesthesia is used to numb the skin on your face and make the process pain-free.

Step-5: The fat grafting is done on your face at different strategic points using micro-injections. The points of injection vary for each individual.

Step 6: The surgeon applies a cooling gel to soothe the skin.

Post-Op Care

Post-treatment care of facial rejuvenation with fat transfer is almost the same as pre-treatment care. You must follow all the steps religiously to avoid any complications after the treatment. The post-op care includes:

  • Invest in good sunscreen and wear it religiously. Make sure to re-apply throughout the day.
  • Avoid blood thinners because they can make bruising and scarring easy.
  • Use cold compresses to minimize swelling and discomfort.
  • Use all the oral and topical medications prescribed by your surgeon.
  • Refrain from scrubbing your skin for two weeks after the treatment.
  • Avoid any strenuous activities for 5 to 7 days.
