It should be known that the processes required for all surgical operations are also valid for fat transfer surgery. Before the fat transfer procedure is planned, the suitability of the person for this surgery is determined. The person who wants to have fat transfer surgery should inform the plastic surgeon in detail and completely about his expectations and wishes , general health status, medications used, and previous operations at the first doctor’s meeting . The fat transfer procedure begins to be planned for the patient whose surgery is decided in line with the information and data, such as the results of the examination and blood tests deemed necessary and what the person expects from the result of the operation. First of all, the donor area that may be suitable for fat transfer is determined. In general, areas where fat is stored most frequently, such as waist, abdomen, and hips, are preferred as donor sites. The fats taken by the liposuction method are transferred to the desired and determined areas by being purified and separated to enrich them from stem cells in special containers.

What is the Recovery Process After Fat Transfer Surgery?

  • Local anesthesia and sedation , the patient can be discharged on the same day after resting for a while.
  • Depending on the area applied, a 3-day rest period may be sufficient for the patient to return to his/her normal life.
