The swelling and edema on the face disappear quickly in the days after surgery..
Permanence of Facial Fat Transfer
The permanence of the fat injected into the face depends on how much of the fat cells will live there. In the past, fat cells were applied to stem cells without being separated during fat injection into the face; but the permanence decreased after 6 months. Therefore, it was necessary to renew the process every 6-8 months. When stem cells attained from fat cells are added to the fat cells, the results become more permanent. Stem cell application ensures trouble-free fat use for years.
Since the price of fat injection to the face varies depending on the age of the patient, the region where the fat tissue will be injected and the quality of the fat tissue of the patient, the price will be determined after the preliminary consultation.
