With the help of a simple micro fat graft, patients can achieve eye correction, wrinkle treatment, treatment of deep creases around the nose and mouth, and augmentation of the lip, chin, and cheek.
iii) Nano Fat Graft
The most filtered fat out of the trio, nano fat grafting is ideal for patients who want to enhance the structure and tone of their skin. One can also opt for a nano fat graft at Eterna Aesthetics to treat crow's feet, fine lines, and tear troughs.
Fat Grafting Procedure & Benefits
A surgical fat transfer involves three stages - removal, preparation, and injection of excess fat. Firstly, small cuts are made in the patient's skin and excess fat is sucked out. With the help of special equipment, the collected fat is separated from blood and other bodily fluids to be safely stored. These small amounts of fat are then injected into desired body parts.
Also known as autologous fat grafting, fat grafting is an increasingly popular procedure that's currently replacing all other cosmetic procedures, and below-mentioned you will find reasons why.
i) Natural-Looking Wrinkle-Free Results
Many procedures don't provide patients with a natural appearance after recovery. But with autologous fat grafting, you won't have to worry about your body parts looking artificial. Fat grafting naturally enhances the volume, tone, contour, shape, and size of your body parts without there being any fear of foreign substances entering your body.
ii) Low Chances Of Complications
With autologous fat grafting, the patient has fewer chances of post-op side effects or complications. Fat grafting is quite an efficient and safe procedure. This surgical fat transfer is safe and patients report minimal swelling, bruising, pain, or allergic reactions.
iii) Minimally Invasive Procedure with Unnoticeable Scarring & Long-Lasting Results
The autologous fat grafting procedure is minimally invasive. Minimal scarring is caused and the effects of this procedure usually last for a lifetime. After six months, the fat cells are permanently established in the patient's body.
Approximately 20-50% of the fat transferred is considered permanent while the rest is usually reabsorbed by the body. These procedures are also highly customized. With the help of the latest technological tools available in our center, you can achieve even better rules for surgical fat transfer.
