People with a flat face look vacant and older than their actual age. By grafting fat into wrinkles, hollows, and flat areas, we create a bright and youthful appearance. Fat grafting is a fat injection that immediately makes you look young through injecting your own fat into an area where volume is needed. Fat grafting is a method able to treat larger areas than fillers. The common areas for fat transfer are the forehead, eyebags, front cheeks, nasolabial lines, and the chin. It does not only improve fine wrinkles around your face but also gives you a gentle and brighter image.
Fat Grafting at MINA PLASTIC SURGERY will take from 30 minutes to 1 hour. (*Operation time varies depending on the patient’s health condition and surgical situation.) You will receive Fat Grafting operation under local anesthesia and be fully awake after 1 hour of the surgery. You are able to go back home after waking up from the anesthesia and getting aftercare provided by MINA PLASTIC SURGERY on the day of the operation. You will visit our MINA PLASTIC SURGERY 5 days after the surgery to remove stitches and receive aftercare service. The recovery time is 5 days; thus, you will be able to return to daily activities 5 days after the operation. Avoid smoking for 2 weeks after the operation to reduce side-effects.
