What is Fat Filling?

Fat filling is extremely easy to define. Fat filling is the injection of fat in order to achieve a fuller appearance in the face and body areas. The areas where fat will be injected can be any area of aesthetic concern. Face, breast, buttocks and many other places can be preferred for injection. The areas where fat filling can be applied are listed as follows:

  • Cheeks
  • Forehead
  • Cheek and lip line
  • Lips
  • Chin tip
  • Breast
  • Buttocks
  • Sunken areas in the legs

The fat transfer to be applied varies according to the required fullness. In this sense, personal demands are decisive.

The extracted fats may go through some processes before being injected. These can be processes such as washing and centrifugation. Processed fat is taken into an injector to be injected into the area. Fats are injected into the area without opening the section. Therefore, the surgical section scar does not occur.

Fat filling can be preferred after tissue loss caused by some diseases. In addition, the loss of collagen due to aging may cause tissue loss. Patients who have loss of fullness in their body regions, regardless of any reason, may prefer fat filling.

What are the Types of Fat Filling?

Fat filling types are shaped according to the wishes and needs of the patients. Different methods can be applied to each region. For example, while fat filling for the face is a different operation, it is different for the breast. The reason why these operations are different from each other is that the operation procedures vary as the operation regions are different.

I had surgery 2 weeks ago by Dr Yucel Sarialtin. I have been to almost every doctor in Istanbul, but this doctor is so spontaneous and gives so much attention to his patient, I immediately felt good. I've had a Tummytuck 360 Lipo and BBL! What a great result I couldn't have imagined it better! Dear people please find the right doctor!!! Because I also had the same operation in 2019, but this doctor mutilated me, and Yucel Sarialtin had to correct this again, which of course makes the operation more difficult. I recommend this doctor 100%! & of course his team also lots of kisses to Buse Bayram Aysegul who helped me through this period

However, in principle, the operations serve the same purpose. Lip filling, which is in the category of simple operations, aims for fullness in the same way, but the amount of injected fat is different from the breast and buttocks regions.

Fat filling is recommended to be applied depending on age. After the age of 30, especially in the face area, it is seen that collagen and adipose tissue decrease. It can be applied from this age upon request and need. In addition to these, naturally, it is seen that middle-aged patients prefer it more frequently.
