Autologous fat injection, also known as Autologous fat transfer, is a procedure, that helps improve the volume of the face wherever desired by using one’s own body fat.
This procedure involves three steps. The first step is the gentle liposuction of excess fat either from abdomen, thighs or buttocks under local anaesthesia.The second step is the isolation and cleaning of the fat cells. The third step is to inject these fat cells into the targeted areas of the face to get the desired volume.
If you are worried about your facial creases, such as laugh lines, smile lines, and crow’s-feet, dark circles – Autologous fat injection could be the right choice for you to obtain profound rejuvenation. In this case, fat will be harvested from your abdomen, thighs or other areas and will be injected into your face filling up the acne scars and sunken areas of the face, lips and cheeks.

After the fat transfer is complete, slight swelling and/or bruising at the donor site or the recipient site(s) on your face might be seen. This swelling is expected to go away in a few days. Any kind of pain or discomfort can readily be controlled with oral medication. Many patients are able to return to their routine within a day or two after their fat transfer procedure. You should follow all postoperative instructions given to have a fast recovery.
The fat transfer results will be apparent once the swelling has receded. A significant benefit of this technique is that the results are long-lasting.
