Medicine Today, fat grafting is using in different areas of the body such as breast – hips- face and lips. Fat is extracted from the abdomen, thighs, and arms. This fat has been done in liposuction procedures under slight negative pressure with Luer-Lock syringes and under local anesthesia. Isolated fat has been separated from the blood and damaged cells and then fresh fat cells injected in the desired region. Since injected fat is one part of your body tissue, there are not issues such as allergies, sensitivity and rejection. Therefore, fat grafting is one of the best and safest methods used in medicine. Injection or recharging it after six months can increase durability of transplanted fat; However, PRP injections can decrease this charging again and increase the graft durability without adding secondary injection. Sports activities and heavy lifting for a period of ten days after the injection must be controlled but there is no prohibition to carry out daily activities.
