    How is fat transfer done in Iran?

    The process of fat grafting and Fat injection in Iran includes three stages: fat extraction from the donor area, fat purification, and fat injection to the desired areas. In the stage of extracting and emptying, fat is extracted from the donor area using liposuction techniques. The fat injection device removes the right amount of fat from these areas using suction power. In the fat purification stage, the extracted fats are processed using a centrifuge to separate waste materials, excess fluid, and dead cells from living fat cells. Pure fat is finally poured into special injection syringes. In the last step of fat transfer surgery, the fats prepared for injection will be injected into the specified areas. At this stage, fat injection is not done all at once, and after the injection, a specific amount of the needle must be removed from the skin and inserted again. This causes the fat areas to be placed in the damaged areas and fill them completely.

    The amount of injected fat in fat grafting is measured in cc and varies according to the physical characteristics of the patient and the area of the body where the processed fat is injected. Also, in some cases, the extraction and injection steps are repeated several times to create a suitable volume in the area. This procedure may take about 1 to 3 hours; Of course, if the injection area is wide or the severity of the injury is high, the operation time will increase up to 4 or 5 hours.

As a result, the person’s hips become large and prominent to a very desirable extent, and this added volume makes the body more shapely and attractive. Although buttock augmentation with fat injection has a more natural appearance than prosthetics, because some of the injected fat is absorbed after the operation, the butt bulge will decrease over time. Generally, 60 to 80% of fat will be retained in the body after injection.

    • Improving skin texture and body shape: In addition to changing the appearance and shape of the body, fat injection improves skin texture in general.
    • Minimal scarring: Fat removal and fat re-injection are performed with minimal incisions and as a result less scarring.
    • Eliminating pores, acne, and skin scars: The fat injection procedure helps you be more beautiful by filling scars and pores.
    • Longer results: Choosing this method, absorption of about 30 to 50% of the injected fat is natural. For this purpose, the plastic surgeon injects more fat to facilitate the absorption process.
    • No use of chemicals: In different methods of fat transfer surgery, the only material used to rejuvenate your skin is the body fat of each person. In this way, no chemical foreign substances will enter the body.
    • Avoiding the risks of implants: Transferring fat from the body’s fat reserves is unlike other body contouring methods in which implants are used to increase volume in body areas such as breasts.

    • In some cases, the recovery period is long.
    • The possibility of scarring or skin infection after the operation in some people.
