Questions and answers

What is facial fat transfer?

Fat transfer (fat grafting, or lipoinjection) is a cosmetic procedure aimed at facial rejuvenation by injections of the patient’s own fatty tissue. 

Using the patient’s adipose tissue, the surgeon fills it in the different face areas that have lost its volume. Plastic and soft fiber effectively restores lost volumes and is perfectly accepted by the body in almost 90% of cases without allergies.

Who benefits fat grafting of the face?

Usually, people observe age-related changes in the face in combinations with the following signs:

  • temple hollowing or concavities
  • nose wrinkles and forehead lines
  • the lower position of eyebrows
  • sunken eyes
  • bags under the eyes
  • lowering the outer corner of the eye
  • blur face
  • relaxed cheeks and cheekbones
  • neck and chest lines and wrinkles
  • lip shape loss
  • double chin
  • marionette lines.

All these are caused by the depletion of the adipose tissue and can be corrected with the fat transfer procedure in Turkey

What cosmetic defects can be improved with facial fat transfer in Turkey?

In addition to the previously listed indications, facial fat grafting in Turkey can also correct anatomical disorders and deformities such as:

  • facial hemiatrophy (reduced size of one half of the face)
  • face asymmetry
  • micrognathia (a very small lower jaw)
  • crooked nose
  • scar tissue deformation
  • reduction in facial soft tissue volume after eyelid surgery.

What are the contraindications?

Despite facial lipoinjection is a minimally invasive plastic procedure, there are several contraindications for its performing: 

  • pathologies of the immune and hematopoietic systems
  • diabetes mellitus
  • cardiovascular diseases
  • infectious and venereal diseases.

What is the facial fat transfer process?

Facial fat grafting is an outpatient procedure so the patient can come back home immediately after the transfer. During the fatty tissue injections, the person is under local anesthesia to avoid pain in sensitive areas. 

Lipoinjection takes about an hour. The procedure starts from the collection of adipose tissue from the abdomen or other area and injected in the corrected zone through minimal punctures using a special medical syringe. A few hours after the procedure, the patient can go home after the consultation with the doctor.

What are the types of facial fat grafting in Turkey?

There are such following types of facial fat transfer in Turkey as:

  • periorbital fat transfer (fat grafting to the eyelids) — restores the adipose tissue of the upper and lower eyelids smoothing wrinkles and rejuvenating the skin
  • fat transfer to nasolabial folds — smoothes the depth of nasolabial folds and marionette lines
  • cheek augmentation — restores the shape and elasticity of the cheeks, makes a clear contour of the cheekbones;
  • fat grafting to the lower jaw and chin — helps enhance the smoothness and sharpness of the jawline
  • lip augmentation — restores lip symmetry, fullness, size, and volume
  • neck rejuvenation — creates a more youthful neck.

How long is the postoperative period?

Facial fat grafting in Turkey does not leave any scars, so the recovery period lasts about a week.

During the first days after lipoinjection, doctors recommend:

 

  • massaging the areas that have been corrected 
  • applying cold compresses
  • temporarily reducing the facial expression
  • taking antibacterial and antihistamine preparations (if needed).

Like all plastic surgeries on the face, fat transfer requires some restrictions in the postoperative period:

  • visits of baths, saunas, and a swimming pool 
  • smoking
  • alcohol intake
  • sleeping on your stomach (usually, for a week).

Swelling and hematomas that may appear after the surgery go away after 3 days.

After the neck fat grafting, the patient wears a special tape for 3-5 days. It serves as a protective barrier against the movement of fat under the skin.

Some types of facial fat transfer in Turkey are allowed only after the patient reaches the age of 20 years. These include fat grafting of the cheeks and cheekbones, the nasolabial folds, chin, and lower jaw.

What result should you expect after facial fat grafting in Turkey?

Cosmetic specialists use various techniques for facial fat transfer in Turkey. Each approach is selected individually for each patient depending on the complexity of age-related changes.

Facial fat grafting without any additional procedures helps to:

  • align the face relief
  • minimize wrinkles 
  • increase skin elasticity
  • improve complexion
  • reduce the number and size of age spots
  • narrow skin pores
  • reduce the number of spider veins or broken blood vessels.

Moreover, facial fat transfer in Turkey significantly postpones the need for more serious plastic surgeries.

What is the level of medicine in Turkey?

Healthcare is the key development sector of the Turkish government. The Turkish authorities are convinced that care for the citizens' health should be an absolute priority of state policy and spend about 77 billion liras for healthcare annually.

As a result, 28,000 medical facilities provide excellent medical care in the country. About 50 centers have certificate of JCI (Joint Commission International), the international improver of healthcare quality and safety across the globe. The index of certificates obtained is the largest. To compare, Israel has 20 JCI-accredited facilities, and Germany — only 10 clinics of this type.

Why is Turkey trendy for medical tourism?

Turkey is also a well-known country globally due to high-skilled doctors that undergo internships in American and European institutions. Patients from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, the UAE, Jordan, and Lebanon prefer treatment in Turkey to other places.

Highly developed medical centers and first-rate therapeutic services at affordable prices attract people from all over the world. Over 1 mln international patients travel to Turkey annually. So Turkey is among Top 10 countries with the most developed medical tourism sector.

Turkey is a top destination for medical tourists because of low-costs. You may save up to 50% on services compared to European countries or the USA due to the average local citizens' income and general price policy within the country.

What hotel services are provided here?

In Turkey, hotels of different price ranges and service levels are presented. The level of Turkish hotels is comparable to hotels in Tunisia, Morocco or Egypt. Most tourists choose 4 and 5 star hotels with all-inclusive meals. Such hotels have everything for a comfortable stay: varied food, a large well-groomed territory, animation for children and adults. Some hotels have their own water park, which guests can use for free. Budget travelers can afford to book an economical 3-star hotel with half board or no meals at all.

When is the best time to travel to Turkey?

The main advantage of Turkish resorts is the long beach season. On the Mediterranean coast, it starts in April and lasts until November. In the resorts of the Aegean Sea — from May to October. The most comfortable time for swimming is from mid-June to the end of October. A large influx of tourists is in July-August, when the air temperature is +38°C, and the water warms up to +27°C.

Do I need a visa?

In 2020, the Republic of Turkey has visa-free agreements with 89 states. Some foreigners are exempted from obtaining entry visas, others are required to receive an electronic visa (e-Visa), and still others must apply for a visa at Turkish missions abroad.
