Fat Injection Treatment

What is the Cost of Fat Injection?

In India the Brow Lift cost ranges from Rs 5,000 to Rs 45,000 depending on the amount of fat to be removed, sculpting needed, the technology used, and other miscellaneous expenses. In most cases, correction of Lipoma is May be eligible for insurance coverage but various finance agencies provide easy (Avaliable EMI – Zero EMI PAY MONTHLY ) facility as well.

Fat Injection - Cost

While now nine different synthetic injectable fillers exist for the cosmetic treatment of facial lines and wrinkles, none of them are permanent. As they are all artificially-created materials, the body will eventually absorb or break them down so their plumping effect dissipates with time. Fat from your own body remains as a very appealing injectable filler material with its own set of advantages and disadvantages.

Because fat is taken from your own body, it will never be rejected or cause any type of foreign-body reaction issues. But although it is your own tissue, its survival after being transferred to a new site by injection is not a sure thing. In fact, the unreliability of fat injection volume retention has plagued its use for over 50 years. Today we have learned and use certain techniques that help improve how well fat survives after it is harvested and injected. One thing that is certain is that the face does better with fat graft survival than the rest of the body. This is because that smaller volumes of fat are needed and injected which gives it a better chance of regaining a blood supply and surviving. Also, the face has a very robust blood supply (better than from the neck down) which makes more blood vessels available (and hence oxygen) to starving fat cells struggling to survive.

An interesting study on facial fat grafting and how well it survives was published in the July 2008 issue of Aesthetic Surgery Journal from Spain. In this study, 26 patients with HIV disease were treated with fat injections. HIV-positive patients were chosen as they usually have severe facial wasting (fat loss) which makes determining how fat grafts have survived easier to measure as little surrounding natural fat tissue remains. By CT scanning and computer measurements, they were able to show that a persistent (out to one year) change in the amount of facial fat present after the injections was maintained. This is particularly significant given that the HIV patient is challenging for a fat graft to survive over time given that their retroviral drug regimen had already destroyed the patient’s natural fat.

Despite the appeal of fat injection grafting, it does have several disadvantages. First and foremost, it can not be placed into lines and wrinkles in the skin. Fat grafts are thick viscous materials that have to be injected through fairly large needles. All of the synthetic injectable fillers are materials which flow easily through very small needles. Therefore, fat grafts must be injected under the skin which makes them good for adding volume and plumping facial areas. Like the synthetic injectable fillers, they can be used for lip and cheek-lip groove augmentation. But they should not be thought of as lines and wrinkles treatments since they can not be placed directly into the skin. Secondly, fat grafts are not ‘off-the-shelf’ injectable fillers. They require fat to be harvested, processed, and then injected. This entire process must be done in a sterile manner, which means that they can not be done in the typical office setting most of the time. Because of this consideration, I usually use fat grafts when the patient is having other surgery and we can take advantage of the operating room environment. Outside of having surgery, I will use synthetic injectable fillers in the office setting when no recovery and an instantaneous result is most important to the patient.

In this article I would be talking about the different aspects related to breast augmentation surgeries through fat injection.

Breast augmentation surgeries are the second most popular cosmetic or plastic surgery in the world after Botox injections. There are different methods of breast augmentation surgeries among which two are most popular. These are saline water implant and silicone gel implant surgeries. Despite being so popular there are still inhibitions about this surgery. The main fear is about the fear of an operation. Non-incisive surgeries have always been the demand from the cosmetic surgery sector. This is because these surgeries are at the end of the day surgeries out of choice and none of us want complications related to incisive surgery. Fat injection in breasts is one such non-operative surgery which is quite effective these days. But besides this reason, there is lot to know about these surgeries.

What Is Fat Injection For Breast Enlargement?

The method of liposuction takes out the excess fat from any other part of the body like the thighs or buttock. this excess fat is then injected in the breasts of the same person. According to professional terms, it is also called Autologous Breast augmentation.

Some Basic Information About This Method

  • This is till date considered as the most natural way of breast augmentation because your body fat helps you get a bigger and proportionate sized breasts.
  • Cosmetic surgeons and experts are think that there are two goals achieved in this surgery. Firstly, removal of excess fat from the body actually helps you to slim down on the areas from where the fat is taken.Secondly those same fat cells help you get bigger breasts.
  • The advantage of this surgery lies in the fact that you get more supple and natural feeling with the newly sized breasts. Several testimonies of this surgery say that fat injection provides you with a very natural looking breast.
  • Unlike silicone implants or saline implants, fat injections usually do not call for any further surgery or complications. Implants often replacement with time but those questions are not raised at all in this procedure.
  • The expert or surgeon conducts the fat injection procedure through local anesthesia and hence there is no question of pain during the process. The time needed for this procedure is around three hours.
  • Experts say that the results are permanent but this permanency depends only when you are able to keep your body weight stable. The implanted fat with age mixes with the blood and becomes natural fat of the body.
  • Numbness and swelling on the injected area are some of the immediate side effects.

What better revenge could there be than having the fat removed from somewhere where you really “don’t exactly need it” and putting it to work, restoring a natural smoothness and youthful look to the face? Or perhaps you’d love it if your own fat could be used to give you a fuller, healthier, and lifted look to the cheeks, or add more plump and shape to the lips? Keep going–Why not take that fat and erase the lines and folds around the mouth, and create a softer, rested and more invigorated overall look? Yes, it can be done! Fat is now used by Plastic Surgeons to do all of these things. Your own body fat is natural, soft, it lasts and lasts, and most of us have at least a little to spare. But can’t you get similar improvements with those fabulous “fillers”? Sure, but the more you use the more you’ll pay, which could result in spending a couple of thousand dollars for all of those injections. And then you get hit by those costs (and injections) again every few months? That doesn’t sound like an ideal plan. Implants could be another option–but they are not appropriate for all of these areas. There’s really nothing in the world of implants that is worthwhile for the lips and the lines around the mouth. And cheek implants–they can get infected, or shift around, even years after they are placed. Fat injection/sculpting is looking more and more to be the superior, sophisticated and elegant solution to most of the age related problems of the face.

One simple fact–the face loses its volume as we age–and the volume it loses is mostly your facial fat. Restoring this loss with one’s own fat, in a sculpting and artistic way, literally “restores” the youthfulness of the face. The “traditional face lift” where “the tighter the better” is the goal–this is not a beautiful or appealing look. A gentle re-tightening of loose facial and neck skin–with simultaneous fat injection/sculpting to fill out, reshape, restore and smooth is a much more desirable and natural look. Fat is injected–that means that there are no incisions, no stitches, no wounds to heal and no scars! Fat can also be used even if aging isn’t the culprit. Fat can be used for thin lips that have always been too thin, or for cheeks that have always looked too flat. Here comes fat to the rescue! What are the downsides to this amazing procedure? There is some extra swelling that comes with fat injection/sculpting, and not all of the injected fat will survive the transfer. But most of the fat persists and will essentially last for years to come. Touch-ups are a typically minor procedure so that more fat injection/sculpting can always be done if desired.

Despite the many off-the-shelf injectable fillers which currently exist, none of them can promise permanent results or complete biocompatibility and lack of any type of foreign-body reaction in everyone. Only one’s own fat, when done as an injection, can potentially fulfill those promises. But fat has another problem…..its survival after injection is unpredictable and it can not be injected very easily into small places or directly into the skin due to its irregular thick flow and the need for a large-bore needle from which it is introduced. But despite these drawbacks, the allure of fat as a filler material continues and its ample donor source (for most patients) perpetuates the mystique of a simple transfer from someplace undesired to a more desirable one.

There is no getting around the fact that fat injections are unpredictable. While there are some that blame a surgeon’s outcomes on their methods, an honest assessment of results will show that, even in the best of hands, the fate of fat transfer is not technique dependent alone. There is still much about fat biology that we do not know or understand. Many factors other than method of harvest and preparation influences its transplantation outcome including source, patient age, and the recipient site. It is naive to think that the important but relatively simple step of concentration after harvest is the dominant step that controls how much fat survives later. It is important for sure but it can be only one of the contributing factors. Much active research work is going on right now to study many of these other factors including how fat differs between donor sites and what other factors may be added to fat to improve its survival after injection.

The face is a fortunate site for fat injections in that the relatively small volumes needed have a better chance of survival. The smaller volume to surface area caused by linear injection patterns favors a quicker ingrowth of blood vessels which provides nourishment to traumatized and starving fat cells. As a result, fat does better in the face than any other bodily area. I currently strain all harvested fat and/or do a few minutes of centrifugation to get out most of the liquid debris and pack presumably good fat material into a syringe. Using 1cc syringes and a 16 gauge needle provides a relatively smooth outflow of fat into the desired facial areas.

One biologic approach that I am currently looking at is the addition of PRP or platelet-rich plasma to a fat graft concentrate. PRP is derived from the patient’s blood and is a spin down of concentrated platelets which can be easily added to any fat graft mixture. The dosing (amount of PRP) per fat graft that is necessary is unknown and must be studied further, but I am empirically using 1cc of PRP per 10cc of fat. Early results, particularly in the lips which can be easily followed and assessed, are promising.At the least, PRP is not harmful in any way as it is derived from each individual patient.
