Body Contouring with Fat Injection

These days, body contouring is one of the most popular procedures in plastic surgery. People are looking for ways to achieve a fuller, more symmetrical, and more aesthetically pleasing body contour. One of the best ways to do this is with fat injection. This method uses your own fat tissue to give your body a natural fullness. It’s a two-in-one solution because it removes excess fat from unwanted areas and transfers it to areas where volume is desired.

Dr. Erman Ak is a top plastic surgeon who specializes in reconstructive and aesthetic surgery. He’s got a knack for helping his patients achieve their aesthetic goals with custom solutions. In this article, we’ll dive deep into the world of body contouring with fat injections, exploring the benefits, applications, and expected results.

This method is all about natural beauty. It’s effective and gives you a natural look. Fat injection is a great way to improve your appearance and feel better about yourself.

What is Body Contouring with Fat Injection?

Fat injection is a way of making areas look more aesthetically pleasing by using your body’s own fat. This procedure has two main steps: removing fat from areas where there’s too much fat (liposuction) and injecting this fat into the face, breasts, buttocks, or other areas. Dr. Erman Ak tailors this process to each patient’s body structure and aesthetic goals, so that the most natural and harmonious results are achieved.

Differences from Other Body Contouring Methods

There are a few key differences between fat injection and other body contouring techniques.

  1. Naturalness: Fat injection uses the patient’s own tissues, which means there’s less of a reaction to foreign substances and allergic reactions. The results look and feel more natural because the injected material is the patient’s own fat.
  2. Recovery Process: Using your own fat often makes the healing process more comfortable and faster. The body accepts its own tissue more easily, and there’s less inflammation.
  3. Double Benefit: Liposuction lets you shape the areas where fat is removed and plump up the areas where fat is injected. This means you can both reduce and increase your body contours.
  4. Long Term Results: If you do it right, fat injections can give you long-lasting results. The body takes care of the transferred fat tissue like it would its own tissue.

Dr. Erman Ak’s experience ensures great results every step of the way with fat injections. This process is an effective way to improve each patient’s body contours in a natural and aesthetic way.

Benefits of Fat Injection for Body Contouring

There are lots of reasons why Dr. Erman Ak prefers fat injection for body contouring. It offers natural results, healing properties and minimal risks. Here are the main benefits of body contouring with fat injection:
  1. Natural Look and Feel: Using your own fat tissue makes the injected areas look and feel more natural. This creates better-looking results when applied to the face, breasts, buttocks, and other body parts.
  2. Lasting Results: If you take care of yourself and maintain a healthy lifestyle, the results of fat injection can be permanent. The body accepts and nourishes the newly implanted fat tissue as its own, ensuring that the results last for a long time.
  3. Double Benefit: Liposuction works by removing fat from some areas and plumping up others. This helps to clean up the body’s contours and give the patient a firmer, toned look.
  4. Less Risky: Using your own body fat reduces the risk of allergic reactions and rejection. Plus, this method is generally less risky than using artificial filling materials.
  5. Comfort in the Healing Process: Fat injections are less painful and require a shorter recovery period than other surgical methods. Patients can usually get back to their normal activities pretty quickly after the procedure.
  6. Personalized Treatment: Dr. Erman Ak takes a personalized approach to fat injections, carefully evaluating each patient’s body structure and aesthetic goals to design the most appropriate plan. This ensures customized results that meet the individual needs of each patient.
Dr. Ak’s expertise and experience make the fat injection procedure a great option for body contouring. Patients can improve their appearance, self-confidence, and quality of life with this method.

Fat Injection Process

Dr. Erman Ak performs the fat injection procedure with great care and attention to detail. He plans each step with the patient’s comfort and safety in mind. Here’s a step-by-step explanation of the body contouring process with fat injection:

1. Consultation and Evaluation

The first step is a thorough consultation with Dr. Erman Ak. During this meeting, Dr. Ak reviews the patient’s medical history, aesthetic goals, and expectations. A body analysis is performed, and the areas where the fat will be removed and injected are determined. This stage determines how the procedure plan will be applied individually.

2. Fat Removal

The fat for fat injection is usually removed through liposuction from areas like the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks. Dr. Ak performs this process using minimally invasive techniques. This technique is perfect for both fat removal and patient comfort.

3. Preparation of Fat

The harvested fat goes through a special process to get it ready for use. In this process, the fat is purified and the living fat cells are brought to an ideal consistency for injection. This process makes the fat more effective and lasts longer when injected.

4. Injecting the Fat

The prepared fat is injected into carefully selected areas. Dr. Ak takes great care to determine each of the areas and amounts to be injected according to the patient’s body structure and aesthetic goals. This ensures that the results are symmetrical and natural.

5. Recovery and Follow-up

After the procedure, patients can usually go home the same day. Dr. Ak gives patients detailed instructions to help the healing process along. The recovery process is usually pretty quick, and patients can usually go back to their normal activities within a few days. Follow-up appointments are scheduled to evaluate the results and make adjustments if necessary.

Common Areas Treated with Fat Injection

Thanks to its versatility, fat injection can be used to achieve aesthetic improvements in many different areas of the body. Dr. Erman Ak helps his patients achieve their personal aesthetic goals by selecting the most appropriate areas according to their needs. Here are some common areas that are often treated with fat injection:

1. Face

  • Cheeks: Fat injections can help add volume to the cheeks and give you a more youthful appearance.
  • Lips: If you want fuller and more prominent lips, fat injections to the lips are a good option.
  • Chin and Under Jaw: Injecting fat into this area gives you a sharper jawline and improves the overall contour of your face.

2. Breasts

  • Breast Augmentation: Fat injections are a natural way to get a breast augmentation without having to go under the knife.
  • Breast Correction: If you’ve got asymmetrical breasts, you can get them corrected with fat injections to make them more symmetrical.

3. Hips and Buttocks

  • Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL): If you want a fuller and rounder butt, fat injections in the butt area are the way to go. This procedure gives you an aesthetically pleasing butt by increasing the shape and volume.

4. Hands

  • Hand Rejuvenation: As we age, our hands also show the signs. Fat injections can help give the hands a fuller, more youthful appearance.

5. Legs and Feet

  • Leg Contour Enhancement: Fat injections can be used on the legs to give you a smoother silhouette and more volume.

Dr. Erman Ak’s treatments using this method focus on enhancing the natural body contours of patients, giving them the aesthetic appearance they desire. Each area is treated according to the patient’s overall body structure and aesthetic expectations, resulting in the most natural and harmonious results.

Expected Results and Permanence of Fat Injection

Body contouring with fat injection offers natural and satisfying results. Dr. Erman Ak can help you achieve a more confident and attractive appearance. Here’s what you can expect from a fat injection procedure and how long the results will last.

Expected Results

  • Natural Appearance: Fat injections give the treated areas a natural fullness, which makes them look more youthful and vibrant, especially in areas like the face, breasts, and buttocks.
  • Enhanced Body Contours: Liposuction makes areas where fat is removed thinner and more defined, while areas where fat is injected gain the desired volume. This double effect improves the overall look of the body.
  • Increased Self-Confidence: Patients feel better and more confident when their appearance improves.


  • Long Term Effects: The results of fat injection are usually permanent because the body accepts the transferred fat as its own tissue. However, some of the injected fat may be absorbed by the body in the first few months after the procedure.
  • Supporting Actions: To get long-lasting results, patients are encouraged to maintain a healthy lifestyle and stay at a healthy weight. In some cases, if the desired volume and shape can’t be fully achieved, additional fat injections may be needed.
  • Age and Lifestyle Factors: The results last as long as the patient takes care of their skin and stays healthy. Smoking can slow down the healing process and make it harder for the body to accept fat.

Dr. Erman Ak performs fat injection procedures based on each patient’s individual situation to meet their expectations. If patients follow the lifestyle changes recommended by Dr. Ak before and after the procedure, they can ensure that the results are long-lasting.

Risks and Complications of Fat Injection

While fat grafting is generally considered safe, as with any medical or surgical procedure, it does involve a number of risks and potential complications. As part of his commitment to ensuring the highest safety standards, Dr. Erman Ak explains these risks to his patients in detail during the consultation process so that they can make fully informed decisions. Here are the main risks and complications associated with the fat injection procedure:

1. Absorption of Fat

  • One of the most common problems with fat injections is that the body absorbs the injected fat at different rates. Dr. Ak uses special techniques to maximize the survival of the fat, but some fat is bound to be absorbed. This may require additional treatments to achieve the desired volume.

2. Infection

  • As with any surgical procedure, there’s a risk of infection after fat injections. Dr. Ak works in a sterile environment to minimize this risk and recommends that patients take the appropriate antibiotics before and after the procedure.

3. Asymmetry and Irregular Results

  • After the fat injection, there’s a chance that the treated areas won’t look the same on both sides. Dr. Ak takes great care during the procedure to prevent such complications and can perform corrective procedures if necessary.

4. Bleeding and Bruising

  • There’s a chance that you might get a little bleeding or bruising during the procedure. This is usually nothing to worry about and will go away in a few days.

5. Fat Embolism

  • It’s pretty rare, but injected fat particles can sometimes get into the bloodstream and cause blockage in the blood vessels. This is called fat embolism, and it can cause some pretty serious health problems. Dr. Ak takes great care during the injection to minimize this risk.

Dr. Erman Ak goes over all the potential risks and complications with every patient before they have the procedure done. He makes sure that the patient is safe and happy with the result. This transparency means that patients can approach the procedure with confidence and know how to deal with any problems that might come up.

Suitable Candidates for Fat Injection

If you meet certain criteria, body contouring with fat injection can give you great results. Dr. Erman Ak looks at each patient individually to see if this procedure is right for them. Here are the things ideal candidates for fat injection should have:

1. Having Enough Fat Tissue

  • Fat injection uses the patient’s own fat tissue, so it’s important to have enough fat tissue to be removed by liposuction. Usually, areas like the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks are good sources for this fat.

2. Being Healthy

  • Fat injection is a surgical procedure, so candidates should be in good general health. It might not be the best idea for individuals with chronic health problems or who are taking certain medications.

3. Having Realistic Expectations

  • Fat grafting is a great way to improve body contours, but it’s not a magic bullet. It’s important that candidates have realistic expectations about what they can expect from the procedure.

4. Non-Smoker or Quit Smoking

  • Smoking can slow down the healing process and increase the risk of complications. It’s best to not smoke before and after the procedure.

5. To be Able to Adapt to the Healing Process

  • Once the fat injection is done, there are a few things to keep in mind during the healing process. It’s important that candidates can adapt to this process and act according to Dr. Ak’s recommendations.
During the consultation, Dr. Erman Ak looks at all these factors and decides whether the fat injection procedure is right for each patient.
