Dr. Carman has been using modern fat injection techniques for over 10 years, and has found the results of fat injection to be very long-lasting. The idea that fat injection isn't permanent can be true if the surgeon uses methods that are too harsh, or that use fat which has been stored under refrigeration. When fat is properly transferred and fat injection correctly performed, it is the ideal filler—soft, natural, and long-lasting, with zero risk of allergic reaction.
Other body areas can be treated with fat injection as well as the face. Depressed scars, flat buttocks, or irregularities from injuries can often be significantly improved. As people become more aware of fat injection, it will become one of the most popular plastic surgical techniques.
Swelling is the most common reaction following a fat injection procedure. Any discomfort from a fat transfer procedure is easily controlled with pain medication. Furthermore, you will receive post fat injection treatment instructions that will also minimize discomfort. There may also be some bruising following your procedure.
