What is Fat Filling?
Fat filling is the process of injecting the fat taken from a certain area of the patient to the patient in order to prevent and reconstruct fat loss due to aging or genetic factors in any part of the body. The skin loses its elasticity and fullness over the years. Deep wrinkles and pits occur that disturb the person cosmetically. In order to remove these, fat is taken from the determined areas of the person by means of special cannulas. The extracted oil is then purified. Purification is the process of removing tissue fluid and blood. This fat tissue is injected into the desired area. People who want a long-lasting effect prefer fat filling to other synthetic fillings.

It is very important that the fat taken from your body does not come into contact with the air and that the removal process is carried out according to the appropriate techniques. The quality of the tools you use and using state-of-the-art technology are essential. There are also many issues such as taking the fat with the appropriate injector and pressure.
