How it works

How does Fat Grafting work?

Fat grafting involves 3 stages

  1. Harvesting nano fats.
    This is done via Tickle Lipo from areas where there are excess fats in the body. This method is almost pain free and produces more viable fat grafts.

  2. Isolation & purification of nano fats.
    The nano fats are separated by using a centrifuge. Non-fat cells such as blood, excess fluids and dead cells are disposed of. The purified nano fats are then transferred into syringes.

  3. Injection of nano fats into the desired area.
    Fat grafts are very rich in mesenchymal stem cells. Mesenchymal stem cells are adult stem cells that can produce more than one type of cell within the body. Hence the fat graft when injected into an area adapts and produces the type of cells of the area.

About fat grafting

What condition it treats

Saggy skin is a condition where the skin loses its elasticity. A firm skin can stretch and return to its original form easily while saggy skin is the opposite. To treat this condition, Fat Grafting can help to add volume to the skin such as the face, neck, buttocks and restore a youthful appearance. 

Fine lines and wrinkles are often one of the very first signs of aging as a result of decreased collagen and elastin. Fat Grafting provides significant volume restoration to smoothen out fine lines and wrinkles.

After fat grafting, about 30% of the fat injected gets absorbed by the body over the course of some weeks. The remaining 70% will remain in the area for many years.

If you would like to replenish your facial volume but would rather avoid surgery, dermal filler is an alternative. Dermal filler can smoothen fine lines and wrinkles, and add volume to sunken areas of the face. However, dermal filler is temporary and does not last as long as fat grafting. 

At GEM aesthetic clinic Malaysia, fat grafting procedure ranges from 1 to 3 hours depending on the area treated. If you are having fat transferred to your face, the procedure may only take an hour but if you are having fat transferred to your buttocks it may take up to 3 hours.
