Fat Grafting

What is the Fat Grafting Surgery?

Fat grafting is known as an autologous fat transfer. Fat tissue is extracted from other parts of the body: thighs, abdomen, and buttocks. The fat tissues are injected into the area wherein volume-deficient areas. For example, people normally inject the extracted fat tissue into the forehead and chin to make a curved and voluminous face.

The most benefit of the Fat Grafting is that fat is removed from areas where you want to remove the fat. This means that the area where you have excess fat can be taken out and the fat part can be treated as well.

At Answer Plastic Surgery, we use your own fat tissues for the Fat Grafting Surgery. Using your own fat tissues reduces allergic problems and side effects. 

Applying your own fat tissues produces very natural, well positioned, and long lasting of the Fat Grafting result without allergic reactions. At Answer Plastic Surgery, Dr. Choi Min utilizes a special microsurgical instrument which minimizes scars of an incision. Dr. Choi Min has a high-skill and know-how of using the microsurgical instrument so, the scar is almost not visible, damaged tissue is minimized and operation is precise and accurate. 

Platelet-rich plasma and stem cell are the methods to heal soft tissues.

Patient’s own blood is extracted through aseptic surgical instruments and the blood platelet is separated from the blood through the centrifuge. The blood platelet is used in injection to regenerate blood platelet in the surgical area. PRP injection improves the function of platelet and decreases the pain of the operation. Stem cells can also regenerate the production of the blood platelet in the area of operation. Injecting the stem cells facilitate the recreation of soft tissues in the area of the Fat Grafting.

Therefore, if you would like to escalate the effect of the Fat Grafting operation, Dr. Choi Min would recommend you to apply PRP injection or stem cell injection. These two methods can expand the maintenance period and allow the fat tissues to be engrafted well.

*Before you take PRP injection or stem cell injection, be aware of your health conditions and issues*

*Check whether you are eligible for the PRP injection or stem cell injection with Dr. Choi Min*

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will I have noticeable scarring after Alar Reduction? 

Generally, people do get scars around the mouth and nose after the operation. However, at Answer Plastic surgery, we use our ultra-fine equipment when suturing to minimize the scars. Over time, the scar will become unnoticeable.

 

Q: When do people get Nostril Reduction?

When people do not have enough alar tissue cells, it is difficult to have an alar base surgery. In this case, those who have large nostrils often choose to reduce their nostrils.

Q: In which cases is alar lifting recommended?

Alar lifting is recommended for those whose have droopy alars. When the alars are sagging compared to the nasal column (the section between the nostrils), nostrils seem to be exposed. By lifting the alars, the amount of exposure can be reduced.
