Noticeable rise in aesthetic and cosmetic surgery in Turkey. In aesthetic and cosmetic surgery, the rise of fat injection and lipo-lifting procedures in recent years is remarkable.

In Turkish aesthetic and cosmetic surgery, the rise of fat injection and lipo-lifting procedures in recent years is remarkable. Fat transfer, which gives successful results especially in micro-lifting operations such as facial volume losses and face lifting, is also preferred instead of silicone in operations such as Brazilian butt aesthetics and breast augmentation, fat injection, which is a more natural and healthy method.

Aesthetic, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon Opr. Dr. Fat injection has been used since the 1800s to replenish and treat soft tissue damage, said.

Among the places where fat is most often taken in the human body is the abdomen, waist, basins and legs, noting that evolution, said, “in recent years, the areas of fat transfer are increasingly expanding, such as butt, breast, face and lips. The resulting oil is used not only for cosmetic surgery, but also for the treatment of tissue irregularities, scars and even burn scars in many places.”


The biggest feature of fat injections, the material obtained belongs to the patient’s body and other products such as cadavers, animal or synthetic origin is not indicating that evolution, was said:

“Since fat injections are not foreign substances, they also do not carry the risk of allergic reactions. In addition, fat injections are longer lasting than fillings currently on the market.

In plastic surgery, in recent years, instead of foreign matter, the patient’s liposuction method by taking their fat and using their own fat body shaping process has started to be used quite often. The most important reason why patients prefer this technique is the absence of foreign material reaction and risks associated with the implant.”
