Fat Injection - Dr. Shady Hayek

Fat Injection

Fat is abundant in all our bodies and is the most natural soft tissue filler.

The major advantages of the fat are the low rate of infection, the natural feeling upon palpation, and the durability.

Because fat is composed of live cells, it changes with the fat deposition of the body which adds to its advantages.

Usually about 70% of the total amount injected stays alive and this amount lives forever.

Unless needed in very large amounts, fat transfer can be done under local anesthesia as a clinic procedure. It can be transferred to the face, buttock and trunk.

Until now, fat injection is not advisable in the breast due to the small risk of being mistaken for breast cancer on screening mammography.

This field is still under research.
