INJECTABLE FILLERS AND FAT INJECTION
Injectable fillers and fat injection are used to fill the facial wrinkles and to enhance the lip line (lips augmentation).
Appropriately recommended pharmaceutical filler substance as hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite or one’s own fat is injected below the skin surface to fill hollow areas and creases, or plump the lips and back of the hands. Fat is typically taken by liposuction from the thigh or abdomen.
Swelling dissipates in 2-5 days or 1-2 weeks with fat injection.
The results are temporary, lasting a few months to several years or more, based on filler used, treatment site and individual patient factors.
